    What is the best hotel for a very active boy, age 2 -1/2, when we arrrive in March? He loves trains, cars, and animals, and does not know much about Disney characters (watches PBS)

    Hi Therese - my son is a similar age, and when we stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge, he absolutely loved it.  We had a savanna view, and he was so content to just sit by the sliding doors and watch the animals.  In addition, Animal Kingdom Lodge has a great food court, amazing pool with a heated little kiddie pool nearby, two fabulous restaurants, and fun entertainment.

    While the Animal Kingdom Lodge is not on a monorail or boat route to any of the parks, I found the bus transportation to be more than adequate.  There's only one bus stop, and we didn't find any of the buses to be very crowded.

    Make sure you're little train-lover also gets a ride on the Walt Disney World Railroad at the Magic Kingdom, a great attraction which will give you an opportunity to ride around the park, checking out the sites.  

    I hope that helps!
