    My husband & 4 1/2 year old twin daughters are going to WDW in Sept. Which hotel would be best - Poly or GF, we want to be close to MK? Also, what are some "Must Does" for families with young kids. We will be there 5 days.

    Hi, Audrey!

    Taking two darling princesses to Walt Disney World is going to be awesome!  When my daughter was 4, she could not wait to meet Sleeping Beauty.  I treasure the wonderful photos from the special Meet and Greet!

    Both the Polynesian and Grand Floridian will be great choices as they are both a quick monorail ride away from where you will probably be spending a majority of your time:  Magic Kingdom!  But choosing between the two resorts, I would opt for the Grand Floridian.  There are two huge pools with zero-entry, perfect for little ones.  But what sells it for me is the new Alice in Wonderland splash area!  Dumping buckets of water, water falls, and water slides that are just perfect for the "age 8 and under" crowd!   Your girls will absolutely love it.

    To add to your magical vacation, plan on some fun meals.   Stop by "Be Our Guest" in Beast's Castle in the Magic Kingdom for a quick service lunch.  Make a dining reservation for "Chef Mickey's" at the Contemporary for a super fun dinner.  Also plan plenty of time for Meet and Greets with all your favorite Disney Pals....Don't forget to bring autograph books!

    Schedule in a day at Hollywood Studios where your girls will just love Disney Junior Live on Stage, Beauty and Beast Live on Stage, and a fun 3-D Movie with the Muppets.  They will really enjoy this park.

    Your girls are at a great age to enjoy so much of the magic, just follow their lead!  Get to the parks early, and take mid-day breaks. If you need help with any other details, let me know!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
