    What hotel is the best for transportation considering my group?* Family of 5 adults and 3 kids (3 and under). We plan to do nightly table service dining at multiple resorts. Our top two parks for daytime are Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios

    Welcome to planDisney Jennifer!

    I am thrilled to help you and your family with your upcoming vacation!

    I absolutely love staying at the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels because the transportation to and from the parks is quick, convenient, and easy! For your family, I have a few recommendations.

    Given that you plan to visit the Magic Kingdom and would like to have convenient access to table service restaurants, I highly recommend Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. This resort has studios and one, two, and three-bedroom suites. The three-bedroom suite sleeps up to 12 adults. 

    Another option is to book several studio suites and request adjoining or connecting rooms. Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is along the monorail line for both Magic Kingdom and Epcot. You can also easily take a monorail to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and Disney's Contemporary Resort, both of which have great dining options! I highly dining at 'Ohana! Their Hawaiian bread is out of this world! You can also easily take the bus transportation from Grand Floridian to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    I recently stayed at the Art of Animation Resort in their family suite and I was amazed at the convenience of the resort to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot. You can take the Disney Skyliner to both of the parks, Disney's Boardwalk, and Disney's Caribbean Beach, all of which also offer wonderful table service dining options. At Caribbean Beach, you can enjoy Sebastian's Bistro, which has amazing slow-cooked mojo pork and cilantro rice. At Disney's Boardwalk, you can enjoy Flying Fish, which is reopening on January 27. Disney's Art of Animation family suites can sleep up to six, so you would need to book two of those rooms to accommodate all 8 of your family members. You can take the bus from Disney's Art of Animation to Magic Kingdom and it's extremely quick and convenient. 

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
