    My family and are bringing our toddler son for his first Disney Vaca. We will stay for two nights, and are having trouble choosing a resort. We are on a budget, and are stuck between choosing a Value or Moderate resort. More spending cash or better stay?

    Hi Jennifer!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  How exciting for you to be planning a 1st Walt Disney World vacation for your little guy!  I have stayed in all types of accommodations at Walt Disney World and I can honestly say that I have enjoyed each resort.  I think if you are only going to be there for 2 nights that a Value Resort will be just fine for you.  You will probably be in the theme parks for a good portion of your time at Walt Disney World, and your room will most likely be just a place to sleep and go for a bit of down time.  Your opportunities to enjoy some of the additional amenities at a moderate resort will also be limited.  

    My vote goes for more spending cash! - I know that whichever level accommodation you choose you will have a great stay!  Please let me know if I can help you with any other questions you have - it would be my pleasure to answer them.  Have a magical day!
