    Hi Amy,

    There are four Magic Kingdom hotels:  Grand Floridian, Polynesian Resort, Contemporary Resort, and my personal favorite, the Wilderness Lodge.  The first three are on the monorail line providing easy access to the Magic Kingdom; you can also easily get to Epcot from them by transferring at the Transportation and Ticket Center to the Epcot monorail.  The Wilderness Lodge provides boat service to the Magic Kingdom.  All of the hotels provide bus service to various destinations within Walt Disney World.  Of these four hotels, the Wilderness Lodge is usually the least expensive.

    Disney tickets are called Magic Your Way tickets and you can get information on them here.  If you only want to visit one theme park on each day then you just need a Magic Your Way base ticket.  If you want to visit more than one theme park on the same day, then you need the Park Hopper option.  If you are also interested in visiting the Disney water parks, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach, or DisneyQuest then you should consider getting the Water Park Fun & More option; that option also allows you to enjoy a round of golf at Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course.

    From the airport, you can use Disney's Magical Express for free transportation to your Walt Disney World resort.  My experience is it takes about two hours after landing to arrive at your hotel; for the return flight, you generally have to catch Magical Express about three hours before your return flight.

    Enjoy planning your vacation and write back if you have any more questions!
