    This will be my daughters first time going to Disney. Being a single mom, I want to be sure she has a great experience all around including in the hotel. Especially since this is for her birthday. Which one is best for a princess encounter?

    Hi, Alisha!

    Thanks for sending another question to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Your plans for making your daughter's birthday practically princessy-perfect in every way is priceless!

    The first resort I would suggest for a princess-filled stay is Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside. My son and I took a solo trip there when he was 10, and, at first glimpse, he exclaimed "MOM! Why have we never stayed HERE before?"; it's truly that lovely. Book a Royal Guest Room, all of which have been decorated by Princess Tiana for her Disney Princess friends. What's more, this is a Moderate Resort Hotel, making a stay here more affordable than you may think.  Even better is Ol' Man Island, which offers princesses and their moms a place to splash and slide after a fun-filled day in the parks.

    Should your princess be partial to all things Under the Sea, try The Little Mermaid Standard Rooms at Disney's Art of Animation Resort, where you'll find whimsical theming throughout the property. The Quick-Service Landscape of Flavors will soon become a favorite, too.

    Be sure to check out Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, at both Magic Kingdom and Disney Springs, to see what royal makeovers are available for your little princess, too!

    Send more questions as you think of them, Alisha; we love to help!
