    Best hotel to stay with a three year old?


    You didn't mention budget for your Disney resort, so I'm going to give you some suggestions in each price range for your toddler....

    Deluxe:  Beach Club or Polynesian.  When I stayed at the Beach Club on a girls trip in June, I could already see myself bringing my 4-year-old back and enjoying the pool with its white SAND floor!  The kids pool combines the best of both sand and pool as its shores provide ample opportunity for sand castles!  Its proximity by boat to Disney Studios and Epcot also makes it good for afternoon naps.  And speaking of proximity, there's nothing like the monorail from the Polynesian to Magic Kingdom or Epcot....the theming is exotic and the pool sports an erupting volcano. 

    Moderate: Caribbean Beach Resort. 
    Again, the pool gives it a leg up, sporting a water play area for preschoolers and a swash-buckling good time.  Pair it with a preferred "Pirate" Room, complete with carpet that looks like plank-flooring and beds themed as boats, and you've got a yo-ho fun resort.

    Value: All-Star Movies.  Two- and three-story tall figures of Buzz Lightyear, Herbie, and others captivate youngsters around the resort campus.  (We spent more time posing with Woody than we did with Mickey!) The rooms aren't as spacious as the more-expensive moderates or deluxe rooms, but if you have a youngster, you can get by when they're young.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
