    We will be visiting for the first time. We have an adult son who uses a wheelchair. We prefer 4 or 5 star hotels. Can you recommend a Disney hotel that is close to the park and fits our preference of 4 or 5 stars? Thanks-Gayle

    Hi Gayle,

    I think you will find some of the best hotels in the world are located at the Walt Disney World Resorts.  The best of the best is the Grand Floridian.  This beautiful hotel is located on the monorail and provides easy access to the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT.  You will need to use the bus for Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, the water parks and Downtown Disney.  Also, on the monorail you will find the Contemporary or the Polynesian.

    If you would like another beautiful location, the Yacht & Beach Club and the Boardwalk will offer you easy access to both EPCOT and Hollywood Studios via boats which your son could easily board.  Both of these are beautifully decorated and have wonderful charm as well. (You could get to Magic Kingdom without boarding a bus but it is longer.  You walk through EPCOT and then board the monorail to Ticket and Transportation and change to the Magic Kingdom monorail.  We use to do this with our sleeping princesses in their royal carriages.)

    I think these are your best choices and I hope you have a magical vacation!
