    Hi Brittany!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    All of the Disney resorts are close to the magic in the sense that they are all located inside Walt Disney World.  However, Walt Disney World is basically the size of San Francisco so some things are closer to other things!

    Unfortunately, none of the Disney Value Resorts are "very close" to a theme park.  You have to take a bus from them to anywhere you are going.  In general, buses run about every twenty minutes and you can get to a theme park in 15 to 20 minutes.  However, the Disney Value Resorts are the most affordable and if you are just looking for a place to sleep and don't mind using buses, then I think they are great.

    If you want to be close to the Magic Kingdom, you can stay on the Magic Kingdom monorail line.  However, those are all Disney Deluxe Resorts.  Likewise, if you want to stay within walking distance of Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios, you have to stay in a Disney Deluxe Resort located in the Epcot area.

    I'm sorry I don't have a better answer for you, but please write back with more questions!
