    I am looking to make reservations for my 2 daughter (2 and 8 yrs old) for June 13-15th. What is your best suggestion for hotel on site (moderate-value) we plan to spend most of our 2 days at the parks, but will be using the pool and rooms for naps ?

    Hi Ashley,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I checked - Mickey and Minnie Mouse are absolutely delighted to welcome your daughters to the Walt Disney World Resort. Luckily, there are a number of fantastic resort hotel choices for your family.

    Given the ages of your girls, I suggest Disney's Art of Animation Resort. A few months ago, I stayed in a Little Mermaid Room and it was super cute. The Big Blue Pool is AMAZING and the resort decor is just fun. The bus rides from the parks were a little long, but I think the pool is worth it! For a moderate resort, try Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. Since you are clearly traveling with royalty, try one of the Royal Guest Rooms. Perfect for princesses, these rooms include nice storage for all royal attire. The serenity of the Royal Guest Rooms might be just right for your girls when nap time arrives.

    If your princesses also travel with an entourage of toy friends, they may try to convince you to change your travel dates to the end of June. Toy Story Land is scheduled to open on June 30th. Collective happy dancing is allowed. Seriously, what could be better than meandering through Andy's backyard?

    Ashley since you only have two days, I also suggest that you consider one of the deluxe resorts with access to the monorail. Disney's Contemporary Resort, Polynesian Village Resort and Grand Floridian Resort & Spa are gorgeous resorts. Disney's Contemporary Resort has a walking path to Magic Kingdom - quite handy when you need to get back to the resort quickly!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
