    We are going to Disney in the fall and I can't decide between which resorts we should stay at. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Our children are 4 1/2 and 2. We are trying to decide between the Grand Floridan, Beach Club or Boardwalk.

    Hi Michelle!

    No wonder you are having a difficult time deciding. All three resorts are beautiful!

    Due to the ages of your children, I would choose the Grand Floridian for its location near the Magic Kingdom. While each theme park will offer fun for your family, the Magic Kingdom will have the most attractions geared to small children.

    The Grand Floridian has a 24-hour quick service restaurant, Gasparilla Grill as well as a restaurant, 1900 Park Fare that offers character meals at breakfast and dinner.

    I would cross Boardwalk off your list due to the inconvenience of having to go out to the Boardwalk for most quick service food.

    The Beach Club is a wonderfully relaxing resort which is only a walk or boat ride from Hollywood Studios and Epcot. The pool is fabulous and offers a fun kiddie pool plus a sandy pool area. The lack of a food court can be inconvenient to some families.

    Our family has stayed at all three resorts. If traveling with a small child again, I would choose Grand Floridian. Enjoy!
