    Looking for a deluxe resort or villa for 4y & 20 month old. Need a separate nap area for baby still! Do we need a villa? Are some geared for small ones? Is transportation an issue? Was thinking AK but maybe a monorail resort? Suggestions? Thx!

    Hi Holly!

    I just moved from New Jersey to Central Florida, but still I feel like a "Jersey Girl" at heart!  A Disney Vacation Club Villa is a great option if you want a separate sleeping area for your little ones during the afternoon.  One-bedroom villas each have a separate living room, bedroom, fully-equipped kitchen and washer-dryer, which is super convenient with tiny tots in tow.  The Villas at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge are a wonderful choice.  We stayed in a one-bedroom at Kidani last summer and my boys absolutely loved them.  We had a savanna-view villa, and were able to see a huge variety of exotic African wild-life from our balcony.  Transportation to all of the theme parks and other resort areas from Animal Kingdom Lodge is via bus, which we found to be convenient and reliable. 

    If you are interested in a one-bedroom villa on the monorail line, Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort is an incredible option.  This new DVC property has an amazing location.  By staying on the monorail line, you'll be able to travel to and from Epcot and Magic Kingdom in a snap, in addition to being able to enjoy all of the wonderful shops and restaurants at the other monorail properties (Grand Floridian and Polynesian).

    Whichever resort you chose to call "home" while on vacation, have a magical trip and happy planning!
