    We are headed back to Disney in December! Our family consists of 6 adults, a 13 year old and a 1 year old. Debating between Kildani and Bay tower villas. Looking for opinions. I know we can't go wrong either way, but just would like your thoughts.

    Hi Colleen! You must be so excited about your upcoming vacation back to Walt Disney World this December. You've got a tough decision...and it's literally a world of difference. Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village is our home resort and we love it! You won't find a more culturally exhilarating experience at Walt Disney World Resort. On the other hand, Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is breathtaking, and so are the picturesque views. Best of all, it's just a short stroll to Magic Kingdom Park.

    With appearances from zebras, giraffes, elks, gazelles, antelopes, kudus, wildebeest's and exotic birds Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village gives you a passport for excitement there's nothing more spectacular than the savanna view. Samawati Springs Pool and Uwanja Camp are the perfect spots to splash and relax. And when it's time for some good eats, head over to Boma - Flavors of Africa you're taste buds will be wowed!

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is the farthest out of all the Disney resorts and it's about a 20-minute ride to Downtown Disney and 30 minutes to Magic Kingdom. The bus stop is right outside the main building and buses come very often so you won't have to wait long going or coming.

    Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is the closest to Magic Kingdom Park and offers the best views of Cinderella Castle. With a 1-year-old nothing is more important than ease of transportation and you'll have the monorail to take you to Magic Kingdom or Epcot. Best of all, on the monorail your little one can stay fast asleep in the stroller because you won’t have to fold it up when you board!

    Whatever you choose, I  a magical and memorable Disney vacation!
