    Hi Kim!

         Walt Disney World caters to families of all sizes and all budgets!!!   In fact, if you ask my boys, they would rather stay at a Value Resort than any other - they just love the over the top theming!  In addition to the three All Star Resorts, there are two other resorts in this category - Pop Century and the all new Art of Animation Resort.  The standard rooms are all priced the same, so why not stay in the brand new Art of Animation resort???  This resort has its own dedicated bus line, which means that travel time between the parks is super convenient.  Of course, it will also have a massive food court and amazing pool - awesome!

         Dowtown Disney is always a great way to spend time at Walt Disney World because admission is completely free.  It's full of magic and it is always buzzing with excitement!  I would then head back to your resort for a Movie Under the Stars - be sure to check with the front desk for a list of movies and times.  Get a great night's sleep because I can't think of a better way to spend your next day then at the Magic Kingdom.  I would be sure to grab a bite to eat at Cosmic Ray's Starlight Cafe - it is the coolest Quick Service restaurant in the entire park.  I would check out Disney's special section dedicated to travelling with little ones to get an idea of what attractions are perfect for your kids.  Have an amazing vacation and keep those questions coming!

    Much pixie dust,
