    my husband and I and our 8 year old daughter r planning a trip to Disneyworld this year, and are considering staying at the Hilton Disney. They r 5 minutes from Disney. Is this a good place to stay?

    Hi Geralyn,

    I believe that you are talking about the Hilton that is located by Downtown Disney.   I've stayed there with my family several times over the past couple of years and I like it very much.  It is a top notch hotel with a really great pool area (and REALLY comfortable beds). 

    The best part of staying at this hotel is that it's literally across the street from Downtown Disney.  The food is pricey in the hotel so we would have breakfast sandwiches at Earl of Sandwich and then catch a bus to the parks.  

    I liked the fact that if we wanted to leave the parks early we could get back to the hotel, freshen up, and walk over to Downtown Disney and enjoy the evening there.  Make sure to grab an ice cream sundae at Ghiradelli's Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop.  It's great for dessert and people watching.

    Enjoy your vacation!

Magic Kingdom still takes my breath away, but my favorite place to be is on a Disney ship looking at the horizon and breathing in that crisp, clean ocean air!  I love planning Disney vacations for others and making sure it's more than they dreamed. Learn More About Marisol
