    HI, I'm planning a trip to Walt Disney World in October with my 4 yrs. daughter and her father. We're looking for a hotel with easy access to parks and close enough so that we can't go back in the middle of the day to rest. Any suggestions?

    Hi there, Tatiana!

    Any of the Walt Disney World Resorts will accommodate the desire for proximity. These are the closest hotels to the Parks, and do offer the free continuous transportation all day.

    The Resorts on the monorail line - Disney's Contemporary, Grand Floridian, and Polynesian - make it really easy for Guests to head back in the afternoon from Magic Kingdom or Epcot for a break.

    And, of course, there are a variety of hotels in the Downtown Disney shopping district that will also do well for closeness, but nowhere near that of the Disney Resorts.

    I hesitate to make any recommendations without knowing a little bit more about your vacation and travel party. Which Parks are you focusing on, for instance? Will you have a vehicle? Is the budget reasonably flexible?

    With that information, I would be delighted to make some further suggestions, tailored specifically to your needs. Feel free to drop me a line!

    See you later, celebrator,
