    This is my first trip 2 Disney & I'm considering the Animal Kingdom Lodge, but I want a resort that's right in the middle of the action. Should I stay with this resort or do u guys recommend another that has a better location?

    Hi Tammeka!

    This is a great question.  The Animal Kingdom Lodge is a fabulous resort and a lot of guests absolutely love it.  However, it is a little bit off the beaten path and if you don't have your own car, getting around using Disney transportation can be a little time consuming.

    If you want to be in the middle of all of the action then I suggest looking at a Magic Kingdom Monorail Resort or an Epcot Area Disney Deluxe Resort.  The best of all, location-wise, might be the Polynesian Resort.  It's on the Magic Kingdom monorail line, but it is also within walking distance to the Transportation and Ticket Center, giving you easy access to Epcot as well.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
