    what is the best place to stay with toddlers?

    Hi Kelli,

    All of the Disney resorts are very "user friendly" for families travelling with small children.  If your toddler sleeps in a crib, you can request a portable "pack n play" for your room no matter what category of resort you stay in.  I would allow your budget and preference for a specific theme guide your decision with respect to resorts, however, my favorites for small children in each category include:

    Value Resort :  All Star Music (If  you can "splurge" on a family suite, you will have a room with a separate master bedroom and living room, two full baths and a kitchenette.  The extra space and amenities work really well with little ones in tow, particularly when mom and dad want to stay awake while the little on is napping.)

    Moderate Resort:  Caribbean Beach Resort (The main pool area is themed after a ship-wrecked pirate ship, and has wonderful kid-sized slides, water canons and splash areas)

    Deluxe Resort:  Beach Club (Stormalong Bay has the best kiddie area in my opinion, with a zero entry and soft, sand bottom.  In addition, this resort is well-located, within walking distance, or a short boat ride from both Epcot and Hollywood Studios.)

    Whichever you chose, have a magical trip!
