    What is the best hotel in WDW for an adult couple with no children? I love all the parks, so what hotel do you recommend for adults? Thank you.

    Hi Summer,

    As much as I love visiting Walt Disney World with my children, I really love visiting with just my husband. We enjoy wandering through the parks at a leisurely pace and visiting the great restaurants and lounges. We try to get to the resorts daughter-free at least twice a year, usually for our anniversary and a birthday.

    In the moderate hotel category, we prefer Port Orleans French Quarter. It's a small, intimate resort with a New Orleans vibe and feels more adult to us than some of the others in that category. We also like that it's an easy water taxi ride away from Downtown Disney.

    In the deluxe hotel category, we're big fans of the Yacht Club and Beach Club resorts, in large part because of the proximity to the World Showcase at Epcot and to all the restaurants of the other resorts around Crescent Lake.

    The International Gateway entrance to the World Showcase is an easy 5- to 10-minute stroll from the resorts, so it's convenient to eat and sip your way around the world in the evenings. During a recent stay at the Yacht Club, we ended up at the Tutto Gusto wine cellar for after-dinner drinks and enjoyed the atmosphere and service so much that we went back for lunch!

    You also can't go wrong with the Wilderness Lodge for an adult getaway. The Pacific Northwest theme gives you the feeling that you've stepped away from the bustle of the theme parks, but it is still convenient to Magic Kingdom and the restaurants in the hotels along the monorail.

    The lodge is home to one of our top Disney restaurants, Artist Point, and to the tucked-away Territory Lounge, which we think has some of the best small bites on Disney property. Don't miss the house-made potato chips or the charcuterie plate of sausages and cheeses.

    Please let me know if I can offer more details about any of the hotels, restaurants or Disney attractions as you plan your visit. I'm happy to be able to help. Enjoy!
