    I'm planning a visit to Disney World in the fall of 2021, I want the trip to be really special for my 5 and 9 year old and was wondering which Disney World Resorts y'all thought would be best.

    Hi Aubrey!

    I love you that you are planning for such a memorable trip already! The good news is that every Walt Disney World Resort is totally unique and special. You really can't go wrong with any choice, but I'm happy to give some suggestions!

    Walt Disney World Resort offers three categories of resorts: Value, Moderate and Deluxe. The first decision to make will be which of these fit your budget. While the price points do differ on these resorts, they all include many complimentary amenities such as transportation to Orlando International Airport via Disney's Magical Express, resort transportation options including boat transportation, the Disney Skyliner, the monorail and buses, and personalized MagicBands.

    Disney's Pop Century is our family's favorite choice in the value category. This resort is decorated with oversized icons representing 1950 to 1990. You'll see giant bowling pins, the largest Play Doh ever, and a yo-yo as tall as house! For a little time in the water, the Hippy Dippy Pool is a fun place to hang out and enjoy some down-time from the parks. Best of all, the new Disney Skyliner is right at the resort. This new transportation system will whisk you through the skies to Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot in just a few short minutes. That's a great perk!

    Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is a great moderate resort to consider. In fact, this is where our next vacation stay will be. From the fun island vibes to the zero-entry pool, you'll have a blast (a literal water cannon blast!) hanging out at the resort. This resort is also part of the Disney Skyliner line, so you'll have all of the advantages of the quick transportation here too!

    Last but not least, Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge is sure to make for a special vacation. Here you can have a room directly on a savanna inhabited by giraffe, zebra and kudu. You really can't beat that! Top it off with fun resort activities like nightly campfires and African storytelling and you'll be talking about your trip for years!

    I hope this helps! Be sure to come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if we can help with some more details!
