    I currently have small children under the age of 5 and would like to take them to Disney World in the next year. Do you feel they are too young? If not, where are the best places to stay and visit with children this age? Best website to plan my trip?

    Hi Darren and welcome to planDisney! I’m so happy to see that you’re busy planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort with your Mouseketeers! Thanks for sending us your planning question. 

    I have been visiting with my family since my girls were babies. My youngest daughter is now six years old and my oldest is 10. Our family really enjoys staying at The Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort. It’s in the moderate category and it is a boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom Park. The cabins offer room for six guests with a full kitchen, bedroom and even a charcoal grill and patio deck. Nap time was a big deal for my girls, so being able to let the girls rest in the bedroom and close the door was always a huge plus. I have picky eaters on my hands, so unless we have special dining reservations, I always prefer making a quick breakfast, lunch or dinner at the cabin. 

    Fort Wilderness is a great place to explore. There are so many awesome recreation activities! From horseback riding to Chip 'N' Dale's Campfire Sing-a-Long at night, my kids love being outdoors at this Resort! Renting a golf cart is always a blast! It also comes in very handy when you come back from a fun filled day at the theme parks. It’s always a relief to see the cart waiting in the parking area near the marina at the end of the night. There’s no need to wait for transportation!

    Disney’s Art of Animation Resort offers up family suites that give you more room and fun theming! You can also have the kids take a nap in the bedroom, if you need a midday break. Transportation at this Resort is a breeze, because you are a hop, skip and jump away from the Disney Skyliner. It will take you to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. When it comes to amenities, the Big Blue Pool is just incredible. Your kids will love it!

    Darren, if you have children under the age of three, they are Mickey’s special guests. That means they don’t need a theme park ticket to be able to enjoy the parks with family and friends!

    You can view all of your Disney Resort Collection hotel options right on Disney’s official webpage. Booking your stay is easy and you can always add theme park tickets to your reservation to make it a vacation package. 

    I hope I’ve given you a few ideas. If you have any more planning questions you can come back to see us here. It’s always our pleasure to help you with all the details of your next magical vacation!
