    We are going on the Disney Cruise in March and wanted to come over to Disney for two nights following the cruise. Where would you suggest staying knowing we can probably only spend one day at the park?

    Welcome to the Moms Panel Thomas!

    How exciting that you're going on a Disney Cruise!  If you have younger children, you may want to spend the day at Magic Kingdom.  Since you'll be used to the life of luxury on the cruise, I'd suggest staying at one of the Deluxe Resorts along the Monorail line:

    * Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
    * Disney's Contemporary Resort
    * Disney's Polynesian Resort

    These offer quick access to the Magic Kingdom.  Its also very convenient in case you need to come back for a break during the day.

    If your party only consists of adults, you may choose to go to Epcot. If that is the case, I'd stay at the Beach Club Resort.  You'll have easy access to Epcot through the International Gateway from there by walking or by Friendship Boat. This is also a great resort to stay at if you want to go to Disney's Hollywood Studios which is also accessible by Friendship Boat.

    If Animal Kingdom is your park of choice, then I'd stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. This Resort is totally unique including being able to view animals from rooms that have a Savannah view.

    If you have any questions about any of these resorts or parks, please feel free to visit again.  We're thrilled to assist you.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
