    Which resort is located closest to the Magic Kingdom? Are you able to take the boat and monorail from this resort to the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom?

    Hello Meghan, and thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    There are so many benefits to staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. Complimentary transportation to and from Orlando International Airport and within the Walt Disney World Resort. Complimentary MagicBands, Extra Magic Hours, Fastpass+ selections 60 days prior to your arrival and the ability to charge food and merchandise back to your hotel room account. But the best thing about staying on Disney property is being close to the magic.

    My 2 favorite resorts that are close to the Magic Kingdom are Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa. Both of these deluxe resorts are magnificent and very close to the Magic Kingdom. Just a quick monorail or boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom. Disney’s Polynesian Resort is just a boat or monorail ride away and Disney’s Wilderness Lodge guests can use a boat to arrive at the Magic Kingdom. However, if you are staying at any of these resorts, you will need to take a bus to get to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Each and every one of these resorts is beautifully themed to give you a magical experience.

    If you are looking for a resort that gives you the feel of being on an African safari, you may want to stay at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. Personally, I don’t think you can go wrong with a stay at any of these deluxe resorts. You will have an amazing trip no matter which one you choose. I love traveling by monorail, so I would probably choose Disney’s Contemporary Resort, for its magnificent views of the Seven Seas Lagoon and the Magic Kingdom. I hope that helps, but if you need any more help with planning your trip, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
