    Hi there! We’re planning a trip for November with a toddler and a 10-year-old. We’d like to stay at a resort that offers something for both ages with a variety of dining options. We’re thinking either Coronado Springs, Caribbean Resort or Pop Century.

    Hi Tina!

    How exciting that you are planning an upcoming trip to the most magical place on earth! November is a wonderful time of year to visit because the Christmas decorations will be up and you can buy tickets to Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, which is a separately ticketed event at the Magic Kingdom. You can enjoy cookies and hot cocoa, 

    My family loved the Coronado Springs Resort when we stayed there. We loved the great pool, which is set with the backdrop of Mayan ruins and they have a 123-foot water slide. This is the only moderate resort with a hot tub, fitness center and spa on site. Kids also love this resort because of the pool, campfire activities, playground and arcade. 

    Pop Century is a super fun resort and kids especially love the theme of oversized toys from the 50s to the 90s, including giant yo-yos, PlayDoh, Rubik's Cube and foosball machine. You can also find giant Disney characters throughout the resort, such as Tramp, Mickey and Roger Rabbit. This is a value resort, so you get incredibly value for your money here. 

    We stayed at Caribbean Beach and this is a great resort if you have pirate fans. We stayed in a pirate room and we were blown away by the cool pirate ship bed, skull curtain, Pirates of the Caribbean art work and intricate details that made the room feel like a pirate's lair. The playground also has a pirate ship theme.

    No matter where you stay, I know you'll have an amazing vacation!
