    Good afternoon, My family and I are planning a last minute family trip to Disney World May 15 - May 21. I plan on booking the trip this week. With a wife and infant 11 months old where is the best place to stay. Planning on doing MK and AK at the moment.

    Hi Dylan! 

    I'm excited that you will be visiting Walt Disney World in May! There are so many wonderful things to see and do at the parks and resorts this Spring. Make sure to check out the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. There are outdoor kitchens around the World Showcase with delicious treats and sweets. I particularly love the frushi in Japan! 

    There are so many wonderful Walt Disney World Resort Hotels that it is hard to choose the best place to stay, but I have a few suggestions for you. If you plan to visit Disney's Magic Kingdom frequently, I suggest staying at one of the resort hotels located along the monorail line. Disney's Contemporary Resort, Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and Polynesian are all solid choices. Personally, I love Disney's Polynesian Resort because it is home to 'Ohana, my favorite restaurant in all of Walt Disney World. Your little one will love watching the Electrical Water Pageant from the beach at this resort. You can also take the monorail to and from Magic Kingdom, which will allow you to easily go back to the resort midday for an afternoon nap. 

    Since Disney's Animal Kingdom is also top on your list, you may want to consider staying at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. You can even get a room with a savannah view that offers a view of animals right outside of your window! When I stayed there, I would drink my coffee on the balcony each morning and watch the giraffes walk by. Your little one will love seeing the animals up close and personal. If you want more room, you can get a villa, which has a separate bedroom, living room, and kitchen. Having more space is great when you have little ones, as it offers plenty of room to change diapers, prepare bottles, and allow your little one to play.

    I also wanted to share with you that there are Baby Care Centers in all four of the theme parks. These centers offer a private nursing room, changing room, feeding area, a kitchen with a microwave and sink, and an on-site shop that sells formula, diapers, and baby food.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
