    Hi! We are planning to visit the park in May or June and I can't decide where to stay! We have a 6 year old, 14, and 15 yr. old. (there are 5 of us). Which are your top 3 resorts that can provide as magical a stay as the park? Price is not a concern.

    Hi Susan! How exciting that you are planning a trip to Walt Disney World in the May/June timeframe! looks like the last week in May is a great time to visit before the summer crowds hit.

    Here are my top three favorite resorts each of the price categories: 

    Grand Floridian Resort and Spa - Absolutely my top favorite! The spa is incredible. If you stay here, make sure to book a massage, pedicure or facial at the state-of-the-art spa. I love the Victorian theme at the Grand Floridian. Not to mention the pool is incredible and restaurants are some of the best in all of WDW.  You will really feel like you are living a life of luxury.  I'm not sure if your six year old is a girl or boy, but girls especially love the My Disney Girl's Perfectly Princess Tea Party, which is held at The Garden View Tea Room at the resort. 

    Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is my favorite moderate resort. This resort is beautiful! It is Spanish themed and the food at the Pepper Market Grill is incredible. I especially love the Lago Dorado lake and Mayan Pyramid pool.  There is also a wonderful spa at this resort and a nice 1-mile jogging trail that surrounds the lake.

    The brand new Art of Animation Resort is going to be incredible. The theming is fun, surrounding some of the best Disney classics, including The Lion King, Finding Nemo and The Little Mermaid. The family suites will open in May 2012 and you can book now. The rooms will be large enough to accommodate your entire family.

    Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with at all! I hope you have a magical vacation!
