    I am going to Disney next April 20-may4. I am thinking of splitting my time between two resorts. My daughter loves the poly because of the kids area and it’s curly slide. She is five. What other resort is a good option for me?


    When it relates to fun resorts at Walt Disney World, there are so many good choices that it is just an embarrassment of riches!

    My daughters are big fans of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, especially for the pools. They love the main feature pool and play area, but they also love the quiet pool. They are also avid resort explorers, and the island themed grounds make them feel like they are in an entire other world. 

    As for second choices, if your daughter really likes pool time, then there may be no better choices than Disney's Beach Club Resort and Disney's Yacht Club Resort. They share the Stormalong Bay Pool, which is an attraction unto itself. It features a long straight slide that crosses over the walkway that encircles Crescent Lake, originating from a pirate shipwreck! It is entirely covered for a point, which can be an issue with younger children, but it is fun. There are also sand bottom sections of the pool. 

    Two other great choices with fun, twisting slides are the pools at Disney's Wilderness Lodge and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. The latter is our girl's other favorite resort, it has a great twisting slide, and with a 5-year old you know that the proximity to the Magic Kingdom is another plus. It would also make the resort move an easy one. 

    If I had to recommend a resort, based on your family, I would go with the Grand Floridian, the Beach Club, the Yacht Club, and then the Wilderness Lodge, in that order.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
