    I was at Disney World once 10 years ago on a high school band trip during Spring Break. What's a good place to stay that's not too pricey but neat? What month (April-July 2013) is best? I'm taking my 5 year old to Disney World. Any other places suggested?

    Hi, Nicole!  I found with kids this age, you can really stay at any of the All Star resorts, Pop Century, or the brand new Art of Animation Resort, and they are usually happy.  My kids love the giant icons, and the Art of Animation virtually puts you into your favorite movies!  It's great fun for young children to see the colorful art and amazing size of things!

    If you can go in early May, just after spring break crowds have died down (usually just after Easter), you may find the theme parks a little less busy.  April is still pretty much peak spring break time, and when you hit later in May and headed into the summer, things pick up and heat up.  I'd go early May if it was me.

    I hope you have an awesome time with your little one!
