    In 2013 celebrating my 60th birthday, and as a long time "Disneyphile", with a week at Disney World. Thinking, stay at a moderate hotel in the park then the last two days someplace really nice with a view, ever hear of this? Recommendations?

    From one "Disneyphile" to another, Steven, I can tell you that many guests do what is called a "split stay".  It's when you, well, split your stay between two or more resorts in order to experience just a little more Disney while you're in town.  Based on your criteria, I'd suggest a stay at Port Orleans Riverside (a moderate) and the granddaddy of all Disney resorts, The Grand Floridian.  You can request (and pay for) a theme park view there, which should give you a glimpse of Cinderella castle right from your resort room.  What better way to celebrate a milestone birthday?  I say go for it!  I hope that helps.

I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
