    What deluxe resort do you think is the best for a family of four? Two kids love Mickey. We love pools and being close to Magic Kingdom

    Hi Jackson,

    If you'd like to be near the Magic Kingdom, there are a handful of deluxe resorts:  the Contemporary, the Polynesian, the Grand Floridian (all of these resorts have monorail access to the Magic Kingdom).  The Wilderness Lodge is also nearby, and you use a boat to get to the Magic Kingdom. The theming of each of these resorts is different.  I'd visit each of the above links to see which best suits your family best, both in decor and budget. 

    For your children's love of Mickey, I should point out that at the Contemporary Resort, if you are staying in the Tower, you'll have a chance to overlook Chef Mickey's Restaurant, which means a chance to catch surprise glimpses of Mickey!

    If you find that these resorts are too costly, I'm happy to suggest some others in different price ranges.

    Thank you so much for visiting the Moms Panel; please let us know if we can help again.
