Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel

  • We are planning a trip for March 2014 for our a 5 yr old. Which resort would be best to stay? Do you recommend skipping Epcot and Hollywood Studios?
  • - Asked by Karen from New Hampshire on 11/23/2012
  • Hi, Karen! When we go to Walt Disney World, the room is often just a place to sleep.  Value Resorts serve that purpose at a reasonable cost. The Pop Century Resort is a favorite Value Resort for adults and kids alike.  It is bright and lively for children, but it is also a stroll down memory lane for adults.  If you are looking for more time at the resort and less time in the parks, then I would consider upgrading to a Moderate Resort.  Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is a favorite.  If you are wanting to get the most possible out of a resort and the budget allows a Deluxe resort, then the Polynesian Resort is the one for you.  It is my family's all-time favorite resort!  It has great atmosphere, a great pool, and location, location, location! Although Epcot is our family's favorite park, there is a lot for a your child to do at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  It would probably be my choice for a five-year-old.  Riding the Toy Story Mania! attraction and seeing the Beauty and the Beast show and the Voyage of the Little Mermaid are just the first three to spring to mind.  Phineas and Ferb, Lightning McQueen and Mater, the Muppets, and the Disney Junior characters are there as well.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
