    Looking to stay at a hotel with access to the monorail or walking distance into Epcot. Have 2 toddlers (2 & 3 1/2). Have stayed at the contemporary and our last 2 trips where the Polynesian. We would like to upgrade to a 1 bedroom in a quiet hotel.


    I can recommend two options. 

    Grand Floridian: This is my primary option. The resort is much quieter, and being on the monorail means your two toddlers are close to the Magic Kingdom! My wife and I have been sold on recent trips that it is worth the extra cost when compared to other options.

    Yacht Club: This is the quieter, Epcot-walking distance option. While I am a big fan of this and the Beach Club, I think of it as more ideal for a family with older kids like tweens and teens. 

    BOTTOM LINE: Because of the ages of your kids, and your desire for a quieter ambiance, I think the Grand Floridian is tailor fit for you!

    Write me back if you have any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
