    I am taking my 11 year old to disneyworld next year. We don't know where to stay. We know we want to stay at a deluxe resort. We live in Oregon and we want to stay somewhere tropical. we are on a budgrt there are also 4 people in our party.Where to stay.

    Erin the Polynesian resort is the best tropical location at Walt Disney World.  It is in the deluxe resort category.  When you enter this resort into the lobby you will have the feeling you are in Hawaii or another great tropical vacation location.  The theme is carried through-out the resort and if you are interested you can also reserve dinner and experience the Spirit of Aloha show.  You can see more photos by going to

    If this price point seems above your budget I can suggest a moderate resort, Port Orleans, that is American southern themed.  Not exactly a Hawaiian tropic but it is a very nice resort with good reviews.  You can see more pictures of this resort by going on line to

    Enjoy your planning for this exciting trip and don't forget to check back with us if you have more questions!
