    Traveling for our first trip to the park with 3 adults and a 2 year old and are having a hard time deciding where to stay. My mom is limited and plans to spend most time at the resort. Suggestions for a place near activities for the child with villa/1BR?

    Howdy Charla!!

    Thanks so much for your question!

    I think your best options for both your little one and your mom would be Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort.   

    Bay Lake Tower offers many wonderful amenities for Guests of all ages, and particularly families with young children. I don't know how limited your mom is but the nice thing about Bay Lake Tower is that she will have a great villa to spend her time in and/or, she can take the sky bridge over to the Contemporary.
    Let's begin with the location. You will LOVE being able to WALK to and from Magic Kingdom! The pools are great. Chef Mickey's is a wonderful character dining experience located in the Contemporary and you will have easy access to the monorail.

    The 1-Bedroom Villas (and larger) at Bay Lake Tower are fantastic!! You will find a well equipped kitchen as well as a full size washer and dryer (yay!)!  Bay Lake Tower also offers the wonderful perk of having two full bathrooms in the 1-Bedroom Villa!

    The master bedroom has a king size bed and shuts off to the living area where you will find a queen size sleeper sofa and twin size pull out mattress in an oversized chair.

    Bay Lake Tower is one of our favorite resorts and I know you will love staying there. Regardless of which resort you select, I would encourage you to book your vacation as soon as possible.  If your mom needs an accessible room, be sure to make that request known when you are booking so that the Cast Member can check availability. 
    Thanks so much for your question and please let me know if you need any further information as you plan your vacation. Have a magical day!
