    Hi Mom's/Dad's .. We will be arriving in WDW, the last week of August. It will just be me and my 4yr old son. I was wondering which resort would be best? We stayed at POFQ last year, but wanted something a little different. Thank you!!

    Do you have a preference as far as staying in a value, moderate, or deluxe resort, Jennie?  Budget factors can make a big difference when it comes to choosing a resort.  That said, if I were taking my five-year-old son on a trip, I would definitely opt to stay at Disney's new Art of Animation resort.  The youngest Disney fans will just adore the theming there.  My son would have a blast swimming in the Nemo pool; it's gorgeous!  He'd also really get a kick out of exploring the Cars area of the resort.  If you're looking to stay with a moderate resort, you might consider Disney's Caribbean Beach; the pirate rooms there would be awesome for a four-year-old.  And in the deluxe category, my preference would be for an Animal Kingdom Lodge stay in a savanna view room.  What little boy would not love seeing zebras grazing right off the balcony of the hotel room? 

    Hopefully one of those will suit you and your son perfectly.  Enjoy!
