    Need to decide between AOA or Floridian. My 4 year kid is in love with Cars and my 5 year girl in love with cinderella. First time at WDW and probably the last as we are from europe. Thanks in advance¡!

    Hi Janet,

    A first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is so exciting; there's nothing quite like that first walk down Main Street, U.S.A. in Magic Kingdom Park and taking in the sight of Cinderella Castle.

    Both Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney's Art of Animation Resort are wonderful places to stay however, they each offer very different Resort Hotel experiences. My suggestions will depend on what you're looking for. If you're looking for a Resort Hotel in close proximity to the Theme Parks, then I recommend Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Magic Kingdom Park is just a short Monorail ride away, and the access to the Resort Monorail makes it easy to get to Epcot too! 1900 Park Fare, located in the Resort, offers Cinderella's Happily Ever After Dinner. Your daughter can enjoy a royal meal with Cinderella and Prince Charming as well as Lady Tremaine and Cinderella's stepsisters Anastasia and Drizella. You can also view Cinderella Castle and Wishes nighttime spectacular fireworks show from the Marina at the Resort. 

    If you are looking for Cars theming, then I recommend Disney's Art of Animation Resort. The Cars wing at the Resort brings the movie to life with the themed landscape and Characters including Lightning McQueen, Mater, Fillmore, Sarge and others from the popular film. My kids love the "larger than life" characters that are showcased throughout the Resort and enjoy splashing the day away in the Big Blue Pool.

    I hope this information helps you to plan your visit. Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Magical Wishes,
