    We are planning a family trip in May 2016. We will have 8 adults and 4 toddlers under the age of 4. We were looking in to getting multiple villas and would like to be close to the Magic Kingdom. Any recommendations for our large group would be wonderful!

    Hi Nichole! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Sounds like you're planning a super size family vacation.  Well, there's no better place to make magical memories than Walt Disney World Resort. To be close to Magic Kingdom your best options are Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort, The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa and Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows...all are monorail resorts so getting to the theme park is a quick zip.

    I just got back from a magical stay at the all new Disney's Polynesian Villas &'s pure tropical paradise! With your large party size you could book a few deluxe studios - each will accommodate 5 guests and they're wonderfully spacious.  In addition to a super fun water park and zero entry pool, your little ones will enjoy fun activities Lilo's Playhouse. 

    For a really fun vacation experience you could opt for a 2 or 3-bedroom villa at Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort or The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa both will accommodate up to 12 guests and includes a full kitchen and washer/dryer. From these villas you’ll be close to the "Wishes Nighttime Spectacular" fireworks show that light up the sky above the beautiful Magic Kingdom castle.

    I hope I've given you some helpful options to consider and I wish you a magical and memorable family vacation!
