    I'm a single mom looking to take my nine year old son to Disney World at the end of September. I'm looking for an inexpensive, safe place to stay in the Kissimmee area. Have any recommendations?

    Hi Lynne,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am beyond excited that you are planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort with your son!

    Time is of the essence since you plan to go in just a few weeks. First, I always suggest Walt Disney World Resort Hotels because of the fabulous benefits they offer. We especially enjoy the Extra Magic Hours offered to resort guests and the Complimentary Resort Transportation. The value resort hotels are typically more budget friendly. I would suggest All-Star Sports or Pop Century resorts - both are super cute. Be sure to check the Special Offers online.

    Now Lynne, listen closely. If your son has a rebel side, you must take him to Disney's Hollywood Studios to experience Jedi Training - Trials of the Temple. Training is intense. Get to the park before park opening and take him directly to the sign-up location. Once there, you will receive further instructions. My girls have battled Darth Vader and claimed victory. Once his training is complete, visit Star Wars Launch Bay and take-in the Star Wars universe. 

    As soon as you make your reservations, create a My Disney Experience account, link your resort hotel confirmation and theme park tickets. You need to make Fast Pass+ selections as soon as possible - these will reduce your time in attraction lines! 

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
