    Hello, Panel! I'm thinking about visiting in late April or early May. Which would you recommend for better weather and less crowds? Also, what's your favorite resort for a family of five? Thank you!

    Howdy Kristin!

    Welcome to planDisney!  Thank you for sharing your questions with us!

    I know you are excited about your upcoming trip to the place “Where Dreams Come True!”  I think late April or early May is an awesome time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort.  The spring break crowds should be over, and it is before the summer season, and the weather is amazing.  The Walt Disney World Resort theme parks are usually busier on the weekends, and you never know which week might have more guests, but I think any time between the end of April through the beginning of May is “Practically Perfect in Every Way!”

    I love all of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels!  There are so many amazing options for a family of five!  If you are looking into a value resort hotel, I would recommend Disney’s Art of Animation Resort!  This resort is home to the large resort hotel pool at Walt Disney World!  I love the theming and all the amenities each room offers!  These family suites are like a little Disney themed home away from home!  The family suites offer plenty of space to relax and enjoy!

    If you are interested in a moderate resort hotel, I would recommend The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort!  These cabins offer lots of room, and this resort offers lots of added recreation!  Beyond the pools, they offer horseback riding, pony rides, canoeing, movies under the stars, and so much more!  We love this resort hotel with all its activities and the laid back friendly atmosphere!

    Most deluxe resort hotels are perfect for a family of five.  If you are looking for a hotel with great access to the Magic Kingdom Park, I would recommend Disney’s Contemporary Resort.  If you are looking for a resort hotel with a fantastic pool and quick access to EPCOT, I would recommend Disney’s Yacht Club Resort.  This resort hotel is home to Stormalong Bay!  We recently enjoyed this beachside wonderland and loved it!  

    I know with all the fantastic resort hotels that the Walt Disney World Resort has to offer, you will find the perfect one that fits your family!  Take a moment and check out the special offers for the dates you plan to visit the Walt Disney World Resort.  Also, check the Disney Parks Blog for everything to do and see during your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!  If you have any more questions while you are planning, please come back to planDisney, Kristin!  We look forward to helping you again!

    See Ya Real Soon,
