    what is the best resort stay for kids swimming; what is teh best resort fro proximity to magic kingdom animal kingdom hollywood and shopping after hours?

    Welcome to planDisney Cara! 

    Lots of questions, so let's jump right in!

    The best swimming pool at Walt Disney World (in my opinion) is Stormalong Bay at Disney's Yacht and Beach Club. This pool has everything from a sand bottom, to a small lazy river, a waterslide, and all around fun! When my family is  planning on a lot of pool time on vacation, we stay at Disney's Beach Club for sure. These 2 resorts (Yacht and Beach) share this amazing pool area and are within walking distance to EPCOT.

    The closest resorts to the Magic Kingdom are Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Both of these resorts have walkways so you are just a 10-15 minute stroll away from walking down Main Street U.S.A.  Boat and monorail service are also available to the Magic Kingdom from these resorts. Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is also walkable to the Magic Kingdom, but it would be the longest walk of the 3. 

    To get to Disney's Animal Kingdom, you will need to take a bus if using Disney Transportation. The closest resort is Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. 

    Disney's Hollywood Studios is walkable (about 20-30 minutes) from the resorts on the Boardwalk (Boardwalk Inn, Boardwalk Villas, and Yacht and Beach Club). If you stay at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, you can hop on the Disney Skyliner for a direct route to Hollywood Studios.

    Disney Springs is can be accessed by bus from any of the Disney Resorts, and by boat taxi from Disney's Port Orleans Resorts. 

    So that is an overview, but there are many, many other ways to reach these Disney destinations. Disney transportation makes zooming around property super easy, so select your resort then you can figure out the best mode of transportation to get where you need to be. Have fun finding that perfect resort!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
