    Planning to travel with my elderly parents to WDW in the spring and looking for the best suggestions for places to stay including location within the resort...would like to limit stairs, proximity to parks is not super important.

    Hi Liana! Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney!

    I absolutely love visiting Walt Disney World Resort during the spring.  This is the time of year we always visited when I was a child and something about the bright pops of color and incredibly detailed topiaries that decorate EPCOT during the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival always keeps me coming back for more.  In fact, my family and I already have plans to return to The Most Magical Place on Earth again next spring, so maybe I'll see you there!

    When it comes to choosing a practically perfect Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you know you're going to get top-notch service and a beautiful atmosphere no matter where you choose to lay your head. I definitely understand wanting to keep your parents happy and comfortable, especially if they're planning on doing lots of walking within the Theme Parks!

    I would suggest looking into staying at one of the incredible properties right on the Disney Skyliner line.  Disney Resorts are categorized into three tiers, Value, Moderate and Deluxe, and you'll find some of each right on the Skyliner's path, making it easy to find the perfect Resort that fits your budget and makes your dreams come true. Disney's Pop Century Resort delivers fun and fanciful theming based on trends from the 1950s-1990s.  It's a great way to remember how it used to be while making new memories!  When booking this Resort you and your party will be able to book a Preferred Room, which will put you and your parents as close as possible to the dining, shopping, and transportation options around the Resort. There are also elevators in the buildings, making it possible to avoid the stairs when heading back to your Guest room in the evening.

    A Moderate Resort, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, is also right on the Skyliner line, giving you easy access to both EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios without too much of a walk. Here, you'll be living on "island time" and still be able to book a Preferred Room, which is in close proximity to the Fuentes del Morro Pool and Centertown Market, where you'll find quick-service dining options.

    If you're looking to stay in the lap of luxury, Disney's Riviera Resort might just blow your mind. This relatively new Resort draws you in with its European style and keeps you there with the elegant art that can be found throughout the property. This Deluxe Villa Resort offers many different types of rooms as well as delicious dining options such as Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera. You'll find this Resort to be more compact than the others, making any Guest room a great one! 

    I hope you and your parents have a wonderful stay at Walt Disney World Resort, Liana! Come back and see us again with any other planning questions.
