    Well i am taking a 5 & 2year old both girls and the only thing I am having a hard time with is a hotel !! I cant decide I like the Disney's Port Orleans Resort because of the the themed rooms! Does anyone have suggestions we will be going for 5 days??


    For me, the dad of two girls (now 4 and 6), the theme of the resort is very important. I like to help make our resort the "fifth park" for them, playing to the theme. We really got into the luau/Hawaiian thing when we were at the Polynesian, for example.

    So here is where I would go, based on your girls, by resort category;

    Deluxe: Grand Floridian
    This is the most princess-y of the Deluxe resorts. And at their ages the monorail access to the Magic Kingdom is a huge plus.

    Moderate: Port Orleans Riverside
    Yes, I think that the Princess themed rooms look like an over-the-top good time for two little princesses! But even if you did not get one of these rooms, I still think this is the best choice in the Moderate category for you. It is wonderfully themed, quite whimsical, and the most feature-rich of these resorts.

    Value: Art of Animation
    Obviously I have not been there yet, but if they are open for you I think that the Little Mermaid rooms might be quite special.

    I hope that this helps? Write me back if you have any follow-up questions by going to my bio page!

    Have a magical vacation!
