    Hi - I'm planning on bringing my two young grandsons (they will be 2 1/2 when we come) to Disney World. We're deciding between Port Orleans Riverside and Carribean Beach Club. Is one more suited for kids this age?

    Hi there, Harry! Thanks for stopping by to see us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    What a fun trip you have planned for you and your precious little grandsons. I know you're going to have a magical time experiencing Walt Disney World with them.

    The two resort hotels you've narrowed it down to are both great in their own special ways. Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside is a beautiful oasis, and offers a playground and pool that the little ones will certainly enjoy. Plus, it's just a boat ride away from Downtown Disney, which is always lots of fun. But for my money, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is the absolute best pick for your grandsons. There's just so much for them to do - starting with the beach! Each of the villages in the resort has its own beach area, just perfect to pull up a lounge chair and let the little guys dig in the sand to their hearts' content. And here's a special tip: if you buy a kids' meal in the Old Port Royale Food Court, it comes tucked inside a sand pail with a little shovel attached.

    Our other favorite spot to play with our young son is the kids' water play area at the Fuentes del Morro Pool. It's a shallow pool with slides, sprays and a splash-tastic surprise that's designed especially for the youngest Guests. My son adores it, and I'm sure your grandsons will, too.

    I hope this helps you find the perfect resort hotel for your family vacation, Harry. Please visit us again if you have any more questions.

    Have a magical day!

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
