    We are thinking about a Disney World vacation this summer. My boys are 14, 8, 7 and 2. Where is the best place to stay financially? I also would like to have a kitchenette and laundry access. Thank you!

    Hi, Kiyomi!  You have several options available that might fit the bill for your family.  

    Your most affordable option will be the family suites at Disney's Art of Animation Resort.  These family friendly suites give Mom and Dad some private space with a separate bedroom, plus fold out options in the living room that will accommodate up to four other guests.  There is a microwave, a refrigerator, and two bathrooms in these units, which makes them a great place to spread out and enjoy vacation.

    A step up from the family suites (both in price and in size) might be the Ft. Wilderness cabins.  Now, I am not a rustic, camping type of gal, but these cabins are incredible!  You have a full kitchen and plenty of sleeping space for a family of up to six people.  The deck has a picnic table and a charcoal grill, so it will feel like the best of two worlds - a Walt Disney World vacation AND a camping retreat.  

    Top of the list of choices would be an accommodatin at a Disney Vacation Club villa.  The villas feature full kitchens, laundry facilities in your room, and the two bedroom villa (which would accommodate your family) has a luxurious master bedroom with an amazing bathroom.  These are truly deluxe accommodations.

    All of the Walt Disney World resorts have laundry facilities.  You can take your clothes to the laundry room and do them yourself, or you can pack your stuff in the provided laundry bags to send them out.  Dry cleaning is also available.

    I hope you have an amazing time on your upcoming vacation!
