    I am taking my 3 yr old son to Disney for his 4th Bday the first week of February 2014 and wanted advice on the best place to stay for him. The pools don't seem to be an attraction this time of year and was told about Animal Kingdom Resort. Suggestion?

    Hi Amanda,

    Animal Kingdom Lodge would be the perfect place to stay with your little guy if he loves animals! In fact, it's still my first choice for my 8 year old. There's something so magical about waking up in the morning and seeing giraffe and zebra off your balcony. Additionally, in the evenings he can use the "night vision goggles" to see them on the savanna, which would be fun for him.

    My other suggestion would be the Art of Animation Resort if he is a big fan of the Disney movies Cars, The Lion King or Finding Nemo. Those 3 buildings only have Family Suites which sleep 6 though, so if you don't need that much room, you may prefer a room at the Animal Kingdom Lodge instead. While the Art of Animation is a beautiful resort, it is still a Value Resort. If you are looking for a fully immersive experience, then I suggest Animal Kingdom Lodge as it is a Deluxe Resort and is worth every dime.

    Wishing you a wonderful vacation with your little guy. Please let me know if I can assist you further,
