    With chidren between the age of 3 to 6 which is the best resort to stay at ?

    Welcome to the Moms Panel Kathryn!

    Looks like you'll be traveling in the summer so you may be spending lots of time in the pool.  I would recommend Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts.  These resorts share what most guests consider the best pool on property, Stormalong Bay. This HUGE pool features waterfalls, a lazy circular river, an awesome waterslide and a sandbar in one section of the pool where kids can wade out and build sandcastles. No need to bring your own pails and shovels because kids meals at Hurricane Hanna's Grill (the poolside counter-service restaurant and bar) come in them - super cool.  This pool is for exclusive use of guests staying at the Yacht or Beach Club and they do check resort IDs to gain entrance.

    You'll also find watercraft rentals for fun in the sun on Crescent Lake and movies under the stars. Your kids will love the Sandcastle Club, a supervised activity center for children ages 3-12 that affords parents a carefree night for an adult dinner (an additional fee is required).

    There are awesome dining options at these resorts that kids love including Cape May Cafe which features a character breakfast buffet and Beaches & Cream Soda Shop home of the world famous Kitchen Sink dessert.

    These resorts are very convenient to Epcot & Disney's Hollywood Studios.  You can walk or take a Friendship Boat to either of them.

    My boys love staying in a resort along the monorail line but during the summer months when pool time is key, Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts rule.

    Please feel free to visit us as often as you'd like during your planning.  Its a pleasure to assist you.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
