    What is the best hotel option for a family with a 5 year old? thanks

    Hi Stephanie!


    While there are an incredible variety of resorts in all sorts of budgets at Walt Disney World, here are a few of our favorites. Hopefully your family will love one of these resorts too!

    All Star Sports - Our family LOVES this value resort. Since we're not huge sports nuts, we were a bit hesitant to try this resort but we were incredibly surprised. The resorts decor is over the top and we loved the pools. The baseball pool kept our son entertained for hours. Transportation from this resort to the parks is all by bus, but it is the first stop for pickups/dropoffs when the resorts share buses.

    Port Orleans French Quarter - This moderate resort is always at the top of everyone's favorites list! The pools here are very fun, with a serpent slide -- AND for double your fun, you can hop over to the pool complex at Port Orleans Riverside (its sister resort). Transportation will be by bus again with a boat ferry option to travel to Downtown Disney.

    Wilderness Lodge -  By far, our favorite resort! This Pacific Northwest styled resort is beautiful inside and out. The grand lobby is breathtaking and there are tons of resort activities for kids. The Whispering Canyon Cafe is often a popular restaurant with the kids. From here, you can take a quick boat ferry to the Magic Kingdom, Contemporary and Fort Wilderness. Bus transportation is provided to the other theme parks - or you can hop on the Monorail, transfer at the Ticket and Transportation Center and head to Epcot.

    I hope this helps! Enjoy!
