    My husband and I are planning out first family trip to Disney in Florida. Our son is 9. Which resort is the best one to say in - on a reasonable budget?

    How exciting that you are planning your first Walt Disney World Vacation, Lisa!  There are many different types of room accommodations at the Walt Disney World Resort to meet various family sizes and budget needs. Walt Disney World Resorts are categorized into Value, Moderate, Deluxe and Deluxe Villas. You will most likely want to look at the Value and Moderate Categories which typically offer a more budget-friendly room rate. As a mom of three boys, I will suggest my favorites in both categories that are most geared to boys in my opinion. Disney's Pop Century Resort is my favorite Value resort and offers a whimsical setting, its own dedicated bus line to the theme parks, and a great quick-service dining location. Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is my favorite Moderate Resort which features Southwest-theming, great recreational activities, and offers a quick-service and table-service restaurant. Follow the links I have provided to learn more about both of these resorts. I hope this information helps in making your decision. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to write me back. I would love to assist you in planning a Magical first Walt Disney World Vacation, Lisa!
    Happy Planning,
