    Hi all! My husband and I are taking our 3 kids (12,7 and 2) in May of 2014. It will be my husbands first time as well as the kids. I am wondering which hotel to stay at that will accommodate our family of 5, and my husband will love. 5000 budget/week.


    There are a lot of choices that you want to check out. Since I don't know all of what that $5000 budget has to cover for you, I would recommend you price out these few options that I have selected for your family. Then you will know which fits most comfortably into your overall plans;

    Option 1: Two Pop Century Rooms: Regular rooms here only accomodate 4, so you would need 2.

    Option 2: One Family Suite at the Art of Animation: While a bit pricey, you only need 1 room. But you can all stay together and you are at the newest and arguably most vibrant resort. 

    Option 3: Port Orleans Riverside - Standard rooms here accomdate 5, and while a bit tight on space, you might find it even less expensive than option 2.

    Option 4: Yacht Club: This deluxe resort puts you walking/boating distance away from both Hollywood Studios and Epcot. Just as important it gives your 12 year old a family-friendly evening destination (BoardWalk) that they can walk to with one parent while the other has the two younger kids in bed.

    In all cases I think your husband will find these to be fun, well themed, and still have better than average amenities that mean less work and more relaxation for him.

    Have a magical vacation!
