    we are planning our trip to Walt Disney World for April 2016, our kids will be 11,7,5 and 2. Suggestions for the best place to stay. Do you suggest just quick service meals also

    Hi Janine, 

    Let me start by saying that no matter where you stay, I promise that you cannot make a bad choice! All Walt Disney World Resort Hotels offer some pretty fantastic perks for Guests. My favorite has to be access to Extra Magic Hours. Each day, at least one of the four theme parks opens early or stays open late exclusively for Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. This is a fantastic opportunity to check out some of the most popular attractions with much shorter lines and thin crowds. This is especially helpful when traveling with children, trust me! 

    With your large party and wide age range for the kids, there is one Resort Hotel that really stands out for me. I would definitely consider a Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. You won't be disappointed by the incredible, immersive theming throughout the Resort. Plus, these spacious rooms accommodate up to six Guests very comfortably. Finally, The Big Blue Pool is the largest pool at any Walt Disney World Resort Hotel!

    Of course you can enjoy many different flavors and locations if you visit Quick Service locations, but I highly recommend that you try at least one Character Dining Experience. These fun, family events make meeting your favorite Disney Pal a stress-free, memorable, private moment. Since your vacation is quickly approaching, you will want to schedule an Advance Dining Reservation as soon as possible as these book up rather quickly. I suggest a visit with the Fab 5 at Chef Mickey's, a Royal Visit at 1900 Park Fare or a Beach Bash Breakfast at Cape May Cafe.

    I hope that helps, Janine! Please pop back in with any other questions. We are here for you!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
