    Louise Asked

    I want to take my my daughter (9) and mother (65) to WDW in Jan or Feb 2012. Which month is better? What's the best hotel? We need transport around the parks included (and from/to MCO). My mother has some limited mobility so need to be close to dining/buse

    HI Louise,

    My mother is wheelchair bound, and when we went to WDW with my parents last summer, we selected the Polynesian Resort because of the ease of getting around.  From the Polynesian Resort, you can take the monorail to both the Magic Kingdom and Epcot.  To get to Disney's Hollywood Studios and the Animal Kingdom, you will need to take a bus, but the cast members are INCREDIBLE working with guests in wheelchairs.  They took care of everything and were always so kind and helpful; my dad still talks about how wonderful my mom was taken care of.  

    As a Disney resort guest, you'll be able to utilize Disney's complimentary Magical Express which will take you both to and from MCO.  And what we love, love, love is having Disney take care of our luggage.  We didn't have to worry about hauling it around the airport; it was delivered to our room.  On our departure date, we dropped the luggage off at Bell Services at the resort and didn't have to worry about it until we arrived at our home airport.  If you click here, you can read more about this service. 

    I'm glad to help you out with more questions, such as good locations at the Polynesian if you think that would work.  I do want to note it is a deluxe resort, so it is more costly.  I'd be glad to offer other ideas, too, if you'd like another resort or have more questions about helping your mother.  If you click here, you can click here to send a question directly to me.
