    Hi! Planning a trip with my hubby & our two boys (4 and 7). We usually stay @ POR, but are interested in trying Poly, Animal Kingdom or BLT. Kids love monorails, architecture, pools & exploring. Which do you recommend for week long getaway?

    Hi, there!

     Amanda, you ask a difficult question - these are all fantastic Resort hotels to consider! It sounds like your boys are adventurous, like mine. I bet they would most enjoy Disney's Polynesian Village Resort or Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Let's chat!

     Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is the perfect place for a tropical dream getaway. With Resort Monorail access, it's super convenient to travel to Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot. If your boys love to explore, they'll have so much fun at the Lava Pool featuring a volcano, waterfall, waterslide and kids water play area. In addition to the pools, your boys can explore the beaches along the Seven Seas Lagoon. From the beaches, your family can watch the Electrical Water Pageant or enjoy a movie under the stars! 

     Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge
     is just stunning. From the moment you enter the gorgeous lobby with it's thatched ceilings, mud fireplace, and African artifacts, you are instantly transported to Africa. You'll even hear the sounds of Africa with live musical performances throughout the day! Your boys are sure to love an incredible view of the savanna from your Resort hotel room balcony - who doesn't want to wake up to giraffes just outside the window? Guests can enjoy Uzima Springs Pool at Jambo House, or take a short walk to Samawati Springs Pool at Kidani Village. With free activities like Animal Tracking and Night Vision Animal Viewing, the recreational offerings are really unmatched at this Disney Resort hotel. 

     Amanda, your little guys sound a lot like mine, and my guys would make Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge their first pick for a weeklong getaway. If you just can't decide, consider a split-stay between both!

     Thanks for stopping by!
