    What is the best resort to stay at when traveling with a 5 and 1 year old to give them the best experience and not break the pocketbook?

    Hi, there!

     Sara, I'm so excited to hear you're beginning to plan a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. And with little ones in tow! You're sure to have a magical stay.

     With over 30 Disney Resort hotels to choose from, there truly is something that meets every Guest's unique needs, interests, and budget. I suggest choosing a Value Resort hotel for your family. These budget-friendly locations offer super fun theming for kiddos along with all the magical benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel! I'm happy to share my favorite recommendations. 

     Staying at Disney's Art of Animation Resort is like staying in your favorite Disney animated film! Your kiddos are sure to love each uniquely themed section of this Resort hotel. The Big Blue Pool, inspired by Finding Nemo, is an especially big hit with little ones!

     My family stayed at Disney's All-Star Movies when my sons made their first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. They just adored the larger-than-life Disney Characters throughout the resort, and my husband and I certainly loved the price point!

     Disney's Pop Century Resort is my personal favorite in the Value category. The newly refurbished rooms are super family-friendly and the Disney Skyliner Transportation coming in Fall 2019 is really exciting!

     I hope this was helpful, Sara. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
