    My husband, 6yr old daughter and I are trying to plan our very first trip to disney in July. We want to tailor this trip for our daugter and are only stay 4-5days. Which hotel would be the best to stay at that will help us experience as much as we can?

    Hi, Jessica!  Congratulations on your first trip to WDW, and it's so sweet that you want to tailor this vacation for your daughter.  You really can't go wrong with any WDW resort.  There are so many to choose from varying in price, amenities and location to the various parks.  Click on Disney Resorts to find out all the details.

    For a six-year-old little girl's first trip to WDW, I would recommend staying as close to the Magic Kingdom as possible.  The Grand Floridian, the Polynesian and the Contemporary are deluxe accommodations which are most convenient to the MK by monorail or boat.  Then, Wilderness Lodge and the campsites and cabins of Fort Wilderness are only a boat ride away.  Being close to the MK not only is desirable in terms of convenience, but there is so much to be said for being able to see the fireworks right outside your resort or seeing the Electrical Water Pageant floating by.

    It's a magical place no matter what Disney resort you choose.  Let me know if I can help you more by narrowing down your options.  Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
