    Hi Ladies! Geat Panel! My daughter's are dancing at Disney with their Dance Studio from MA (Starz!) We are a family of 5. I am not disabled, but I do have arthritis in my knees and feet. What is the best hotel to stay at with the least amount of walking?


    By category, here is where I would recommend you go to minimize walking;

    Deluxe: Contemporary Resort (but only if you are in the main tower, not the garden rooms)
    Moderate: Port Orleans French Quarter
    Value: Pop Century

    In all of these you want to be sure to do the online check-in. When you do, you should have the opportunity to request a room close to the main building/lobby to minimize walking. If you do not, don't hesitate to call and let them know of your need. You can call as early as 10 days before your arrival. Be sure to do so, as many of the resorts could be generously referred to as "sprawling"!

    Oh, and congratulations to your daughters! What fun they will have dancing at Disney!

    Have a magical vacation!
