    What is the best resort to stay in with 5 children under 2?

    While I highly suggest visiting all 4 parks, many guests with toddlers visit the Magic Kingdom most often. Because of this, I'd highly suggest staying at a Magic Kingdom resort (however, these are more costly):  Grand Floridian, Polynesian, or Contemporary.  With their placement on the monorail, you are just minutes away from the Magic Kingdom which makes coming and going easy.  You can also wheel strollers onto the monorail - a true lifesaver, especially when little ones are sleeping. 

    Within those three choices, I'm partial to the Polynesian.  The rooms are large, so they have the extra room for strollers without making your room feel like an obstacle course. I also like that you can walk over to the Ticket and Transportation Center to catch the Epcot monorail -- much less complicated than having to transfer monorails.  We often request a ground floor room to let our kids go outside and play on the lawn when they need to run off some extra steam.

    The pool at the resort has a zero entry and also has a splash area for little ones.
