    Which resort is best for toddlers? Ages 2 and 4

    Hi, Nicole!  You have loads of choices for a resort that best suits your family.  You'll find something for every budget, from the Value resorts to the Deluxe resorts.

    If we leave budget out of things, you might want to check out the Art of Animation resort.  This brand new resort is bright and beautiful, and you'll find it themed with some of the most beloved characters.  The best thing about this resort with toddlers is the availability of the family suite.  Costing about the same as a moderate resort, these suites will have a separate bedroom for the grown ups, plus three fold out options in the living room.  This allows you to either use the bedroom for the children, so Mom and Dad can sit out and enjoy a peaceful evening after the kids go to bed, or put the kids in the fold out options and Mom and Dad can have the king sized bed in the bedroom.

    You'll also find two full bathrooms, so Mom can be showering while Dad bathes a child.  They are also great for potty emergencies.  The room also has a kitchenette, with a small refrigerator and microwave, allowing you to prepare a few quick meals or snacks.

    Another option is one of the monorail resorts.  Any of the three (Contemporary, Grand Floridian, Polynesian), will allow you pretty easy access between your hotel and the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT.  Or another deluxe option is Animal Kingdom Lodge, where you'll be able to enjoy the animals out on the savannah.

    I hope this gives you some ideas!
