    Hello, we are planning a trip this November. I am trying to decide which resort is best choice for my family(2adults,1yr old,2yrold). We have stayed at AKl twice before but what a new experience. we will have our own car so close parking is on my list.

    Hi, Jennifer!

    I love that you are looking for some place new to stay at Walt Disney World!  With 20+ resorts to choose from, there are many wonderful choices.

    My first thought for you in the Deluxe category is the Polynesian.  With a wonderful pool for your kids (zero-entry, perfect for little ones!) and a sandy beach with a view of the Magic Kingdom, Polynesian is so nice for families.  Even though you will have a car, there is convenient Monorail transportation to the Magic Kingdom and Epcot.  To be the closest to the parking lot, book a standard room.  I always lean toward the Rarotonga building which is near the Great Ceremonial House and the parking lot. 

    In the Moderate category, I would opt for Port Orleans French Quarter.  Book a standard room which can put you within steps of the parking lot.  We always have a car and request Building #4 which is close to the food court, playground, and our car.

    Take a look at www.disneyworld.com at these resorts and see if they interest you. If not, let me know and I will be happy to offer additional suggestions.  Good luck deciding!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
