    Seeking resort suggestions for a 3 and 1 year old? Looking for something quiet for nap times/early bedtimes, fun, but also nice for my Husband and I. Also, good transportation options to and from the parks!

    Welcome Foolish Mortals to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am thrilled to be your Ghost Host today Katie, and I cannot wait to help you find the perfect Disney Resort Hotel for you and your family. 

    Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is one of my favorite resorts to stay at. The larger than life Characters that stand tall outside of each incredibly themed building will enchant your little Mouseketeers! My little ones love to pose for pictures throughout the resort when we stay there. I recommend staying in one of the Family Suites so that you and your husband can enjoy a little separation from your Mouseketeers during nap time or bedtime. The suite includes a Double-Size Sleeper Sofa, Double-Size Table Bed, and a nearly separate room that includes a Queen-Size Bed, leaving plenty of room to spread out. 

    The Family Suites are also highly decorated making you feel like you’re a part of the animated movie. You can either roar like a lion in The Lion King Family Suite, join Nemo and friends in the Finding Nemo Family Suite or take a cruise with Lightning McQueen in the Cars Family Suite. No matter which theme you choose, I know you will enjoy this animated resort as your favorite movies come to life right before your eyes. 

    The best part is that this resort not only offers Bus Transportation to and from the parks, but you can also experience “falling with style” as you ride the Disney Skyliner on the days you visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT! Another great resort that also uses the Disney Skyliner, as well as the Bus Service, is Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort! There you can dazzle your Mouseketeers with a Pirate themed room

    I hope this has helped give you an idea of some of the great resorts available for families traveling with little ones. As you may have noticed, Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is my personal favorite resort to stay at when traveling with my little ones and I hope you will enjoy it too! I’m so excited to hEAR all about your upcoming visit. Please be sure to visit us again if you have any more resort questions, or if any other questions come up as you continue to plan. I just know that no matter which resort you choose, you will enjoy a bundle of benefits included for Guests staying at select Disney Resort Hotels

    Hurry Baaaack, Hurry Baaackk!
