    Hi Molly,

    What a great way to celebrate your husband and daughter! When my girls were little, we always stayed at the Boardwalk because we could walk or take a boat to two parks.  This way we did not have to take them out of the stoller to and from the parks.

    I would base my decision on the resort on where I was going to be touring. If you are going to be primarily at Magic Kingdom, Wilderness Lodge or any of the monorail resorts would be great because you could easily get back and forth to the park for a swim or nap at the middle of the day.

    Of the choice you suggested, the wow factor at the Wilderness and Animal Kingdom Lodges are up there! Both amazing resorts because they take you "out" of Florida. For proximity, Saratoga and Coronado are further than the others which could make a midday trip back to the resort a two hour roundtrip.

    If all of them are close in price, Wilderness Lodge would be my pick of your choices. I would though have you look at Yacht and Beach Clubs or Polynesian for their convenience to the parks as well.

    Remember to stop at Town Hall in Magic Kingdom to pick up a birthday pin!
