    Which are the best resorts for young children (5 and 2) at Disney World?

    Hello, Thomas! 

    Thank you for bringing this excellent question to our website! It's always a pleasure to help families find the perfect Disney Resort hotel. All Disney Resort hotels have unique features that will charm children and parents. Some of them have specific characteristics that may be ideal for your kids, so let's get to them! 

    If your kids love animals, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is the place to be. My dear friend Rayna has three kids, and they love staying at the Savanna View rooms. Waking up with giraffes and zebras is undoubtedly a treat for adults and little travelers! This Disney Resort hotel also has fantastic activities, a fabulous pool, and four exceptional restaurants. It's exciting to have all these possibilities in the same building, isn't it?

    Disney's Beach Club Resort is also an excellent option if your kids like pools. People often mention Stormalong Bay as the best pool in the Walt Disney World Resort, and they are not wrong. This Disney Resort hotel offers effortless access to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios, so it's a great option if you're planning a trip with a lot of Theme Park days. 

    Since you're traveling with two children, you'll probably have a double stroller with you. Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is an extraordinary place to stay in your case because you will be able to walk to Magic Kingdom Park every day. This location is surreally convenient, and this Theme Park will probably be a hit for your family. 

    If your little Mouseketeers like The Lion King, Finding Nemo, The Little Mermaid, or Cars, then Disney's Art of Animation Resort is a great alternative. The theming is so brilliant that you will feel like you're inside the movies. This value Resort hotel is also exciting because it will give you access to the Disney Skyliner, and kids love it. The fun begins before getting to the Theme Parks!

    While the Disney Resort hotels offer distinctive theming, recreation, and transportation options, they all include the same game-changing benefits, like early access to the FastPass+ booking system and the practical Disney's Magical Express, for example.

    We'll be here hoping that you and your family have a wonderful trip to the Walt Disney World Resort, Thomas. Stop by if you want to learn more about your accommodation options, FastPass+ arrangements, or dining reservations! We're here to help you make the most of this trip! 

    May the magic be with you,
