    I am tossed up between the Polynesian and Animal Kingdom villas. We will have two adults and three children ( age 4 and 3 year old twins). Any suggestions

    Although I am a huge fan of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, in your situation I'd have to cast my vote for a stay at the Polynesian.  As I'm sure you're probably aware, Disney's Polynesian Resort is one of three monorail resorts which means that access to the Magic Kingdom couldn't be more convenient.  And since you've got your hands quite full with three children under the age of five, convenience will be key during your trip.  One of the biggest perks--in my opinion--is the ability to transport a sleeping child in a stroller from the theme park back to your resort room via the monorail without ever having to wake him or her.  Additionally, based on the ages of your kids you'll likely be spending a significant amount of time at the Magic Kingdom so it makes perfect sense to choose a resort that is nearby.  You'll likely also appreciate the ease with which you can travel to the other monorail resorts (the Contemporary and the Grand Floridian) for the popular character meals hosted in each of them.

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
