    what is the best resort to stay in with little ones ages 4, 5, and 8?

    Hi Keith,

    Every Disney resort is great for kids!  However, with your children being as young as they are, the Polynesian would be my choice for your family for several reasons:

    Location, location, location - I'm sure you'll be spending a fair amount of time at Magic Kingdom.  The monorail access makes it super convenient to travel between the park and your resort.  Plus, you're so close to the Transportation and Ticket Center that getting to other parks is also a breeze.

    Great Pool - while it's not my favorite pool on Disney property (Beach Club wins, hands down in that category), it's fun.  The zero depth entry makes it nice for families with young children.

    Beach access - no, you can't swim, but you can build a sand castle or just relax in a swing while watching fireworks over Cinderella Castle.

    Great dining - 'Ohana is one of our family's favorite places to go for dinner, plus there is a character breakfast each morning with Lilo & Stitch.  Kona Cafe has some incredible desserts as well as delicious breakfast options.  Captain Cook's is the only place, besides the Magic Kingdom, where you can get a DoleWhip.

    Space - the rooms in the Polynesian are slightly larger than those at other deluxe resorts. Extra space might be helpful for your family of five.

    These are just a few reasons why Polynesian is a great option for your family.  However, any resort you choose will be great.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
