    Hi Margert i am having a hard tme deciding where to stay,with 3 adults & 1, 2, & 5 yr. old. I dont plan on renting a car for our WDW trip in sept. My kids love to swim and nap, leaving the park for a break is a must. What resort or cabins do u sugg

    Hi Richard,

    I can understand your dilemma. Even after countless trips, our hardest planning decision always begins with where to stay. There are so many great Disney resort choices with unique themes and fantastic amenities that it is hard to pick.

    Given your childrens' ages, I would imagine you plan on spending a good deal of time at Magic Kingdom and may want to consider a resort near this park. Given your party size, you may want to consider looking into a villa for a little added room and sleeping options. This means the best choice would be Bay Lake Tower at Contemporary Resort. You would be a short walk from Magic Kingdom, or could use the monorail to both Magic Kingdom and Epcot. This option would provide you with a few different bedroom options and the largest amount of space.

    If you would prefer a standard resort room instead of villa, the Polynesian Resort offers the largest standard room of the Disney resorts and has a daybed which comfortably sleeps a full size adult (I know as I have slept on it myself). The Polynesian would also offer the convenience of the monorail for transportation to both Magic Kingdom and Epcot.

    Now if you are looking to get away from the cost of a deluxe resort, check out the Fort Wilderness Cabins. The Cabins are a short boat ride from Magic Kingdom and sleep families of 6. The living room offers a full size Murphy bed, and the bedroom has another full size bed as well as twin bunk beds. The Cabin also has a spacious bathroom and a fully stocked kitchen.

    Lastly, if you are hoping to find a value option, the All Star Music Family Suites are a great value and can also sleep families of 6 with a queen bedroom, pull out sofa bed and chair and ottoman that convert to beds for the younger guests. This resort is slightly further from the parks so it would be a longer ride back, but still manageable.

    Hope this helps. Happy planning!
