    what is the best walt disney hotel to stay with a baby of 10 months?

    Hi Juliana! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm happy to assist with your planning question.

    Taking a ten month old baby to Walt Disney World will be magical! I took both of my own children before they were a year old, and had wonderful experiences. Before your trip, I recommend familiarizing yourself with the Baby Care Centers - they are a fabulous resource for parents of little ones. Once you use their spacious changing tables, you may never want to use one in a public restroom again!

    I'm glad to hear you are planning on staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. It is so convenient when traveling with a baby to have nearby theme park access and transportation back to your resort room. My children are no longer infants, but we still like to return to our resort for a break and a nap each day.

    When traveling with young ones, I tend to prioritize two things when selecting my resort: proximity to theme parks and transportation. I like to be as close as possible to the Magic Kingdom Park, and I prefer transportation that is convenient to board with a stroller. The resort that combines both of these priorities is Disney's Polynesian Village Resort. It is so close to the Magic Kingdom that I can almost smell the popcorn on Main Street, U.S.A, and it is connected to both the Magic Kingdom and Epcot by monorail. You do not have to take your baby out of a stroller to ride the monorail - just roll right on! This is especially useful if your little one is like mine and tends to doze off right as we're leaving a theme park. No need to wake anyone up when you are using the monorail!

    Another good choice with an infant is any of the resorts connected to the Disney Skyliner. Disney's Riviera Resort, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney's Art of Animation Resort, and Disney's Pop Century Resort are all fabulous resorts located along this new and efficient transportation system. Like the monorail, when riding the Disney Skyliner, it is not necessary to remove your baby and fold up your stroller.

    Out of the Disney Skyliner Resorts, my top choice would be Disney's Art of Animation Resort. The family suites here allow for a separate sleeping space for your infant - something my family has always valued. We can put our little one to sleep in one room and relax in the other space without disturbing his or her sleep.

    I hope that helps narrow down your resort choice, Juliana. Be sure to stop by the front desk of your resort or Guest Relations when you arrive at a theme park to pick up a "First Visit" button for your sweet little one! I wish you and your family a magical vacation!

    See ya real soon,
    Betsy
