    Hi Margaret!

    Thank you for visiting the Moms Panel!

    These are two great resorts.

    Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort is a unique resort at Walt Disney World, offering campsites and wilderness cabins - these cabins offer a rustic escape, but with housekeeping, and comforts of home.  You can take a boat to Magic Kingdom park (16 mins); and a bus to Disney's Hollywood Studios (18 minutes).

    Disney's Art of Animation Resort - opening this week - 31st May! - would have a wide appeal to youngsters.  The beautiful bright animation which fills this resort, will make you feel as if you have stepped right into the movie - you can choose accommodations in four different themes: The Lion King, Finding Nemo, Cars and The LIttle Mermaid.  The theming continues right into the guest rooms too, lovely for families.  This resort provides a bus to all locations, and will not share a bus with any other resort.  Travel to Magic Kingdom by bus (22 minutes); or by bus to Disney's Hollywood Studios (15 minutes).

    Please remember that all travel times are approximate, and you will have to add waiting times at bus stops, or the boat docks.

    I hope this information will help you make your decision - if you have any other questions that would help you decide, please come back and ask me - I would be happy to help you plan your magical vacation!
