    planning a princess extravaganza for my 4 yr old. Trying to decide btwn Art of Animation, the Ariel room or Port Orleans the princess room. The Stay, Play and Dine package makes it possible. Is it worth it? she may be just fine with Ariel room. Thoughts?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ellen!

    Oh, my goodness, a princess extravaganza for your little one's 4th birthday! How magical!

    You've made excellent choices in where you may stay while touring Walt Disney World. Disney's Art of Animation Resort is spectacular, with tons of clever touches you'll both love. From the decor of The Little Mermaid Standard Room to details at The Big Blue Pool (you'll hear Finding Nemo characters underwater!) to the best quick-service location in any WDW hotel--Landscape of Flavors--this is one resort that will make your stay truly magical.

    Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside is a gorgeous property that is a highlight of any stay. Royal Guest Rooms feature details fit for a princess. One difference between Value Resorts and Moderate Resorts can be found when you head to the pool. Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside features Ol' Man Island, which includes a slide as well as a hot tub, making pool time even more fun.

    We sometimes add some extra-special splurges for a birthday visit. For your princess, you could add a magical makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, a princess celebration from Disney Floral & Gifts or book Disney's Perfectly Princess Tea. Such royal fun!

    Happy birthday to your princess! Send more questions as you plan her royal celebration!
