    What is the best resort for a toddler?

    Hi Colleen!

     My family finds visiting Walt Disney World resorts easy for every member of our family to enjoy even the youngest in the bunch. That being said, there are over 20 Walt Disney World Resorts! Each has a theme and if your family has a preference for one of them, it's worth while to check it out.

      My kids have been perfectly content with value resorts such as the Pop Century and the All Star Movies, as much as they were with deluxe resorts such as the Contemporary. A couple of things I consider when traveling the "World" with a toddler, are budget and ease of transportation.

     If you're considering a Value resort, the two I mentioned earlier have been favorites for my children. They love the cool "icons" to look at throughout the value resorts. I like that it's easy to walk from one area of the resort to another because there isn't a wide sprawl of land between the buildings as there are at some other resorts, making it easy to get around with the kids If you plan to use Disney's transportation, buses are the mode used at Value resorts.

     Moderate resorts are a happy medium between value and deluxe resorts when is comes to budget and ease of transportation. Plus the added benefit of having a table service restaurant.

     If more amenities, proximity to the parks and the modes of transportation carry more weight, you still have a wide variety to choose from with the Deluxe resorts. There are definitely advantages to staying at a Magic Kingdom resort due to the monorail and water launch transportation options to Magic Kingdom. Resorts in the Epcot area also have water launches to Hollywood Studios and Epcot. In addition, the Boardwalk nearby is nice to walk, eat, and have a little fun at while on a break from the theme parks.

     I hope this helps you to at least narrow down your choices! Please feel free to come back to the Moms Panel if you need any more help.  Have a magical vacation!
