Mom And Son On Run

    Hello - I am thinking of bringing my five year old son in late September. Just the two of us. He has Down Syndrome and cannot walk very far. What Moderate Resort would be best for us?

    Hi Ryan!

    My favorite moderate resort is Port Orleans French Quarter and one of the main reasons is due to its size.

    French Quarter is the smallest of the moderates, which means that everything is within a quick walk and does not require a shuttle or bus to get from location to location within the resort. Another asset of this resort is its incredible New Orleans theme that just envelopes you in the feel of the "old South". The pool area is quite a fun spot to spend a few hours too!

    Perks of this resort (besides being beautiful) include boat transportation to Downtown Disney, use of the pool and amenities at Riverside (included since French Quarter and Riverside are sister resorts), and a great quick service restaurant featuring Beignets for breakfast! YUM!!

    In addition, you may want to consider bringing a stroller or renting a stroller during your stay. It will come in quite handy in parks and at the resort. Kids of all ages and abilities find that Walt Disney World can be quite a bit of walking - the stroller can really help!

    Hope this helps! Have a great vacation!

    PS. Don't forget to hop a boat to Downtown Disney for a nice way to send a few quiet moments traveling down the lazy river!
