    Thinking about booking a WDW vacation for family of 5 (2 adults, 5 yo girl, 3 yo boy, 1 yo girl). Which resort is best to stay in for kids of this age?

    Hi Trisha - it really does depend on your budget, as the hotels really do vary in price quite a bit.  If the ski is the limit, then I'd recommend staying at the Beach Club (my family's favorite hotel!).  You can get a room with two queen beds and a day bed - perfect for your family of five.  In addition, you'll be within walking distance of Epcot and can take a quick boat ride over to Hollywood Studios (you'll still need to take buses to Animal Kingdom and the Magic Kingdom).  The pool at the Yacht/Beach Club is the best on property in my opinion, and it's also great for little ones.

    However, if that's not quite in your budget, you may consider staying at Port Orleans Riverside.  While it's not guaranteed, you can request a room in the Alligator Bayou section of the resort, which offers a murphy/trundle bed in the rooms.  Or, you can always use the crib instead, depending on the size of your one year old.

    Have a great vacation!
