    We are planing are 1st family trip to WDW and I would like to know which disney resort would be most enjoyable and accomidating for a 5 year old boy and a small 6 year old girl. We plan on staying 7 nights.

    Hi, Julie!  The great thing about all the resorts at WDW is that they all would be enjoyable and accommodating for your entire family.  With all the resort benefits and amenities there are to offer, you just need to pick one that most interests you and your family and that best fits within your budget.  Simply go to Resort Benefits and explore which one is right for you.

    My family and I have stayed at almost every resort, and these are my favorites within the various categories:

    • For a Deluxe Resort, my favorite is The Contemporary Resort which is on the Magic Kingdom monorail loop and is within walking distance to the MK.  It boasts some of the best in dining that the World has to offer including Chef Mickey's character meal and The California Grill which sits atop the resort.
    • For Deluxe Villa accommodations, our family likes them all...but if we had to pick, it would be either the Beach Club or the Boardwalk Villas with their easy access to all the fun and excitement of the Boardwalk.  Plus, the Beach Club features a sand-bottom pool, Stormalong Bay, which is hands-down our family's favorite pool area.
    • In the moderate category, we like Coronado Springs or Port Orleans (Riverside or French Quarter) because of the dining, recreation activities and whimsical pools.
    • For a Value Resort, we like the All-Star Sports Resort since all of my children play all kinds of different sports.  They love the theme, and my husband and I love the price!
    • We've also camped at Fort Wilderness in an RV and rented a cabin there, too.  Fort Wilderness is an experience all its own with entertainment and recreation unlike anywhere else.
    Hopefully, I've made your decision a little easier, and if you have more questions, please come back and ask.  Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
