    We are planning our 1st trip to WDW for my daughter's 6th birthday Jan 2012. It is a little overwhelming with so many to choose from. Can you please tell me which resort has the best view of Magic Kingdom (castle) and the best Disney experience.

    Hi Isela! What a lucky little princess you have! For the best views of both the Cinderella Castle and Space Mountain, you can't beat The Contemporary Resort. The theme park-view tower rooms offer a fantastic balcony and view. You can even enjoy the fireworks from your room! The decor is very modern, and the monorail literally runs through the resort, making it a quick ride to both the Magic Kingdom and Epcot. You'll enjoy a wide selection of restaurants, including the infamous Chef Mickey's character buffet, 'Ohana, and the incredible California Grill, located on top of the resort with sweeping views. Your family will love the pools, and can rent watercraft on the lake right outside your resort. There's so much to do, and having the Magic Kingdom just steps away, makes it the ideal spot for your first Disney vacation!

    Write us back with any other questions as you continue to plan your vacation Isela!
