    I'm planning my first trip to WDW. We will have a 3.5 and a 2 year old. Any hotel recommendations? Is it best to stay at a hotel with monorail access directly to a hotel for the kids when they get tired? Is a bus a better option?

    Hi Melanie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us an excellent question!

    Budget permitting, I’ll admit that the convenience of the "Monorail Resorts" can’t be topped, especially if you’re planning to use a stroller for your kids. You can wheel the stroller right onto the monorail, without having to fold it up. This is especially convenient at the end of the night when your little ones are tired from their day of fun and may be passed out cold! My favourite monorail resort is definitely Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, but you can’t go wrong with any of them. 

    That being said, I haven’t found Walt Disney World Resort’s bus transportation system to be that inconvenient with little ones, even with having to fold up our stroller. If you want a bit more space, I would definitely recommend a Family Suite at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. I loved having a kitchenette with my little guy, as well as two bathrooms. My family calls that Resort “Toddler Heaven” due to the Big Blue Pool and its larger-than-life icons!

    I hope my answer helps you plan your family’s upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
