    What is the best hotel for kids to stay at? Caribbean beach, boardwalk, or coronado springs

    Hi Dana! The great thing about the resorts at Walt Disney World is that they're all super kid-friendly, and you really can't go wrong with any of them. Personally I'm a fan of Disney's deluxe resorts because I like the sizable rooms, the prime locations, and the luxury that they offer. For that reason, I think your family would love the Boardwalk! It's just a short boat ride or walk away from Epcot and Hollywood Studios and you'll have plenty of room to spread out in the spacious rooms. My kids love the pool there, which has a fun clown slide. At night, the Boardwalk area is alive with jugglers, magicians and other performers so it's fun stroll around with the family, and the proximity to the parks and the other Epcot-area resorts gives you a plethora of dining options within walking distance.

    The Caribbean Beach is also a popular choice with families because of its moderate prices and its large pool. You can stay in a pirate-themed room there, which kids really enjoy, but they're not as plush as what you'll find at the Boardwalk. The resort has fun recreation activities for the kids like a playground and a marina where you can rent watercraft. The pools are really fun for kids -- you'll find multiple waterslides and water cannons. You won't have as many dining options and the resort is quite large so it takes a bit of time to travel around, but if your kids like the pirate theming of the rooms and the massive pool, the trade-off may be worthwhile.

    The Coronado Springs is a nice resort that offers some luxury at a moderate price range. It also has a sprawling themed pool. This resort is popular with conventioneers, and for that reason, many families with kids prefer the other Disney moderate resorts, so I would recommend the Boardwalk or Caribbean Beach over the Coronado if you're looking for a fun atmosphere for kids.
