    Hi, Kayleigh!

    How exciting that you are planning your son's first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort!  My own children were right around the same age as your son when they first visited Walt Disney World, and seeing the magic through their eyes was such a treasured experience for me.

    As far as resorts go, I don't think you can go wrong with any of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels.  All of them are amazing and offer the same benefits such as complimentary transportation, early access to making FastPass+ selections, and access to Extra Magic Hours.  If you are going to be spending a lot of time at Magic Kingdom Park, perhaps you will want to stay at one of the resort hotels conveniently located along the monorail system. This is the perfect location if your little Mouseketeer needs a mid-day break.  Another great option for you would be Disney's Art of Animation Resort.  With its fun character themes and the Big Blue Pool, this resort hotel is sure to be a hit with children of all ages. 

    As for your question about the weather, Florida weather can vary greatly during the fall and winter months. However, the weather during the fall is generally much cooler than the summer months, so if you are looking to avoid the heat, this is a great time to visit Walt Disney World.  I think the weather in November would really be to your liking, and you could experience the start of the holiday season at Walt Disney World.

    If you have any other Walt Disney World vacation planning questions, please let us know!  See ya real soon!
