    Hi Kara, We are surprising our 3 boys with a quick trip up to Disney while on spring break. we have 4 comp tickets to utilize from a family member which is a $ saver. which hotel & park do you recommend for a 2 day visit? thanks!

    Hello, Jill,

    What great fun to be surprising your sons with a trip to Walt Disney World!  You'll have so many unforgettable moments together!  Since you are planning on a 2 day visit, I am imagining that you'll be spending quite a bit of time in the parks to make the most of those 2 days.  Because of this, I think going with a less-expensive option for a resort would be something to consider.  As a family of 5, the following moderate resorts are lots of fun with all the Disney perks, but still more budget-friendly: Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside and Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. When our sons were younger, we stayed many times at Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside and found it a good match for our needs. 

    As for the parks, I would make sure to include the Magic Kingdom as it epitomizes so much of the Disney experience and has a wide variety of attractions for both thrill-seekers and those seeking calmer options. You can also easily slip away for a meal and/or a break by hoping on the monorail to visit a nearby resort.
    If you'd really like to make the most of your 2 days, there are VIP tours available that focus on thrill rides or young families' interests. Through these services, you can really experience the best of more than one park.  It is a splurge, but one I thought you might like to know about. 

    Just a few ideas to help you as you begin planning.  If you have more questions, please let us know.  We are happy to help.  Wishing you a magical trip! -Kara
