    We will be bringing our grandkids; 17, 15 and 5 in July. Where should we stay to meet the needs of this great age range?

    Hello Ellen,

    You must be thrilled you that you get to spend quality time with your grandchildren this summer at the most magical place on earth!

    As I thought more and more about your question, I knew what my requirements would be for a Resort with a five-year-old child. I would want convenient amenities and the ease of getting back to the Resort for mid-day breaks. But with teenagers, I was in a bit of a predicament. And that's when it hit me.

    I think the Contemporary Resort would be ideal for your family. The Contemporary has its own Monorail stop to whisk you away easily to Magic Kingdom and Epcot. But for those independent teens, they can easily walk to the Magic Kingdom ahead of the family when the little one needs a few extra minutes in the morning to get ready - or vice versa. You have some good dining options at the Contemporary too. Your youngest grandchild will love Chef Mickey's, and it would be hard not to impress the older ones at The Wave.

    Hope this helps. Enjoy your trip!

My family loves our Main Street in Ohio. But there's simply no comparison to Main Street U.S.A.! We don't get to Disney quite as often as I'd like, but that just means finding new ways to sprinkle Pixie Dust on our adventures! Learn More About Monina
