    Going to Disney for the first time with my 2 and 4 year old. Contemporary, Grand Floridian, or Polynesian? I have stayed at all, all are pretty much the same price, which should I pick? Which is the most fun for kids?

    Hi Kerry!

    Tough decision as they are all beautiful resorts.  I decided on the Polynesian this year because I think my 3 year old will love the theme of a tropical paradise, not to mention the really awesome volcano in the pool.  We also have dining here at our favorite restaurants, so it is convenient to stay close by.  I also can't wait for my son to experience the Neverland Club!

    I think the Contemporary is also interesting to young kids because of the monorail passing through the resort, but I think it's only worth staying here if you are in the main building, which is quite a bit more expensive.

    The Grand Floridian is also a well, grand hotel.  There isn't a more elegant resort at Walt Disney World.  I don't think my son would appreciate it enough.  I'm saving this one for him when he's older.

    You can't go wrong with any of these, but my vote is for the Polynesian.

    Have a magical day!
