    I am attempting to plan a vacation to disney for me and my 2 sons (11 and 7). This will be our first time. Does anybody have any suggestions for the best hotel/resort for my boys to enjoy their experience?

    Hi Danielle,

    Thanks for vising the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It’s so great to hear you’re planning your first Walt Disney World vacation for you and your boys.  My wife and I took our son at both those ages and we have so many great memories of our fun experiences.

    Our son loved the super-over-sized fun found at Disney's Pop Century Resort. While we have not yet stayed at  Disney's Art of Animation Resort, I would race Lightning McQueen to get to a Cars Family Suite, or even do my Hakuna Matata happy dance to stay in a Lion King Family Suite.

    Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort offers Pirate-themed rooms, though the Resort is currently undergoing refurbishments.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is a favorite Walt Disney World Resort Hotel of ours. The tranquility, exotic environs, and view of nature and wildlife are incomparable.

    Our son also really, really enjoyed Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort (where we’re Disney vacation Club Members) right next to Disney's Contemporary Resort because he was thrilled to just walk right over to Magic Kingdom Park.

    I'm sure you'll find the perfect accommodations to make your vacation magic.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
