    I am planning our first visit to DW. Dates are tentative but we are staying 5 nights 6 days. With a 4 yo girl, what resort is best, suggestions for itinerary? Looking to utilize time and not hop from park to park(except maybe dinner) Thanks!!

    Jessica, your daughter is at the perfect age for her first visit to Walt Disney World!  I have just returned from Walt Disney World myself, and we stayed in the new Art of Animation Resort and we absolutely loved it!  The theming is incredible, and the rooms are comfortable and have fun decor.  There are also 3 themed pools to choose from that your daughter would love.  The Little Mermaid section accommodates up to four guests, and the Lion King, Finding Nemo and Cars sections are family suites that accommodate up to 6 guests and have 2 full bathrooms.  Art of Animation Resort is a Value resort.  Also, for the age of your daughter, from personal experience, we found that one park per day was really our best option...little ones need lots of down-time, as I'm sure you know, and swimming in the pool is just as important to them as visiting the theme parks.  And if you could incorporate one day in the middle to just enjoy the resort, or explore Downtown Disney you will definitely not have that exhausted feeling at the end of your vacation.  Have a great trip!
