    I'm planning my 1st trip with my 13yr and 10yr old daughters in May, which value resort do you recommend ? They went with their dad in 2009 & stayed at Pop Century, so I would like to select a different resort this time, any favorite suggestions? Tha

    Hi Tonya!

    Congrats on your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World! I have so many favorite resorts, I'll give you one in each category.


    Art of Animation Resort is a brand new resort and they offer family suites to enable your family to spread out. With 13 and 10 year old daughters, I bet you all would appreciate having your own space! You will even get your own master bedroom and a kitchenette in these family suites.


    Port Orleans Riverside offers Royal Princess Rooms, which your 10 year old daughter may love. If she is into princesses, she will love this resort. You can also take a boat to Downtown Disney from here, which is great for shopping, dining, taking in a movie or relaxing for the afternoon


    Grand Floridian is my favorite resort! This resort is absolutely beautiful and only a short monorail ride away from Magic Kingdom. You can enjoy fine dining, a spa and excellent pool.
