    Travelling in July with two 3 yr olds & really have no idea where to stay. We have had delux recommended to us as well as value. I really want to be comfortable esp considering the kids will be in bed by 8:30pm & the parents still have a couple h

    Hi Lana,

    I think, if you can afford it, staying at a deluxe resort will lead to a much more relaxed, comfortable vacation. With 3 year olds, I recommend staying at one of the resorts connected to the monorail: Grand Floridian, Polynesian or Contemporary.  This will allow you to get to the Magic Kingdom and Epcot much quicker than if you had to rely on bus transportation.  Plus, you can wheel your stroller right onto the monorail, whereas you have to fold them up to board the buses.

    If you can splurge an get a view of the castle, that's even better!  This way, you'll be able to see the nightly fireworks from the comfort of your own room.  If the kids are awake, they can watch in their pajamas; otherwise, you can stroll out onto your balcony and watch the show.

    Also, as the name implies, deluxe resorts have more amenities than the value resorts.  The rooms are bigger, and the beds are more comfortable.  You will definitely get a better night's sleep.  Plus, each room has a refrigerator; they come in handy for storing milk, juice boxes or other snacks. 

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
