    We're planning a trip with a 4,3&1yr old...which deluxe hotel would best suit toddlers? What is the beginning of Oct. like in terms of how busy the parks are, weather, etc.? We want this to be a fun, exciting trip...but are worried b/c of so many unkno

    I stayed at Disney's Polynesian Resort with my wife, mother in law and our 3 and 5 year old daughters and we all really fell in love with this resort. The entire feeling in very tropical, lush and simply beautiful. The food is also great there. The Tonga Toast at Kona Cafe is worth the visit alone! The pools are always a warm 82 degrees and our kids spent hours in them. As for a family meal, we loved O'hana's which means family by the way. We were so full from all the delicious food. Another reason we chose this resort was the fact that it connects to the Disney Monorail which means easy and quick rides to and from the resort which is great because I was always having to go back when we forgot an item we needed. It was no big deal because the Monorail is so fast. It also helped when the little ones were ready for a nap because we got back to the room so easily. As for weather, October is a great time to visit. I would bring the extra layer of clothing and maybe a blanket for the kids on the cooler nights. I hope this helps you have a magical vacation.
