    Hi Moms! I am planning my daughters 3rd birthday at Mickey's house in February!!! We are waffling between Art of Animation - Caribbean Beach - Beach Club - Port Orleans (either) - Polynesian - Swan/Dolphin. Any preferences? Dining plan is a must :)

    Hello Heather!

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You are going to have such an amazing time celebrating your little one at the most magical place on earth.

    I love all your hotel options! They are all amazing Disney Resort hotels, but keep in mind that Walt Disney World Swan and Walt Disney World Dolphin that are no managed by Disney, which means you will not be able to purchase a Disney Dining Plan if you stay these hotels.

    To fully enjoy exclusive benefits, I recommend staying at a Disney Resort hotel. I am a big fan of Disney’s Beach Club Resort. Their location is perfect, and the dining options are incredible! Breakfast at Cape May Cafe with Minnie, Goofy and Donald is a must for us, and we always plan for an afternoon treat at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. However, if you are coming in February it might be a little cold to enjoy Stormalong Bay some days, so keep that in mind when booking. I personally prefer to stay at this hotel in the summer.

    I would choose to stay at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort. You will be so close to the magic to celebrate your little girl. Character breakfast at 'Ohana is just amazing, and the proximity to Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot by monorail can’t be beat. If you would like to have an adult evening out, your daughter can safely stay at Lilo’s Playhouse. The resort is beautiful with so many great things to see and do.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Heather. Please stop by real soon if you have more questions!

    Best magical wishes,
