    Looking for hotels with easy access to the Magic Kingdom - 2 rooms or an adjoining room for 4 adults and 1 child

    Hi Dave,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Your arrival date is coming sooner than it may seem! There are several beautiful Disney Resorts Collection hotels close to Magic Kingdom. My family loves Disney's Contemporary Resort and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa because both are within walking distance to Magic Kingdom. Disney's Contemporary Resort is a shorter walk. I suggest that you start to price vacation packages for the dates of your visit. When you do, the system will ask you to input the number of nights and age of the child. And, you can see the different room categories for the dates of your visit. Also be sure to check the Special Offers to see if there are any applicable offers for the dates of your visit.

    Both of these resort hotels and Disney's Polynesian Village Resort also have access to Walt Disney World® Monorail Transportation which will take you to Magic Kingdom and EPCOT. Since the walk from Disney's Grand Floridan Resort & Spa has taken my family 15-20 minutes, we are also happy to use the monorail if it's raining or if we are too tired to walk. Honestly, however, the walk is beautiful and we love talking about our day on the way back after the Happily Ever After fireworks. Each of these resorts has fantastic amenities including multiple dining locations. At Disney's Contemporary Resort, we love to dine at Chef Mickey's, Steakhouse 71, and California Grill. At Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, we adore 'Ohana and Kona Cafe. And, at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, we are excited about the grand reopening of 1900 Park Fare and always enjoy a meal at the Grand Floridian Cafe.

    Although all of these resorts have distinct differences my family loves each of them, so I think either choice you make will be fantastic. I will add that each resort has daily activities that you should consider if you want to just spend a day relaxing at the resort. And, at Magic Kingdom, I would actually consider Disney Genie+ because there are so many attractions that you may want to experience.

    Dave, one last tip - book your vacation package with theme park tickets and consider adding a Disney Dining Plan. For my family, a dining plan is a good value but we always do the math by checking the menus of each restaurant we plan to visit and we keep in mind the drinks we can get at the resort with the resort-refillable drink mug!

    Magic and memories,
