Noteworthy Properties

Wyndham Palace Resort and Spa, Lake Buena Vista, Florida

Kathy Bush and her family checked out this Disney World location and declared the Sunday character breakfast with Minnie, Goofy, and Pluto delightful. The Kids Klub (with T-shirt dyeing, inner-tube relays, stained-glass art, and kite making) runs every day, allowing parents time off to recharge at the acclaimed spa. Prices start at $159 per room per night.

Wyndham Resort and Spa, Fort Lauderdale

At check-in, two large aquariums were the "perfect diversion for antsy kids," points out Bush, who also visited this location. In the Kids Klub, her 8-year-old daughter made puppets and swam. Wyndham also scores big for screened balconies, a separate toddler pool, and prompt service. "We called housekeeping at 6:30 p.m. requesting two Band-Aids. At 6:42, two men arrived with walkie-talkies and an enormous first-aid kit," says Bush. Prices start at $93.
