    I will be traveling to Magic Kingdom at the end of the month and will have 2 toddlers and a baby. We will need to return to our hotel for naps. Which on-property locations do you recommend with the fastest transportation to and from Magic Kingdom?

    Hello Kerri! Hot dog! You're getting so close to your magical vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort! Booking a Disney Resort Hotel close to the park you plan on visiting most is a great planning strategy!

    The two resorts that I recommend are Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa (my favorite) and Disney's Contemporary Resort! I recommend these because they are both on the Monorail track to Magic Kingdom Park. The Monorail will provide you with the fastest transportation to all the magic offered at that park!

    The Grand Floridian will be re-opening on September 21st! I like to think of this resort as my home away from home! The Grand Floridian is the last stop the Monorail makes before arriving to Magic Kingdom Park, so it will be a quick ride to all of the magic!

    Disney's Contemporary Resort is the first stop that the Monorail makes when leaving Magic Kingdom Park, so this might be your best option if you're looking to get your tired Mouseketeers back to their resort as quickly as possible for those (much needed) afternoon naps!

    Kerri, you can't go wrong with either resort! Both offer opportunities for swimming and great quick-service dining options. If you Disney's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa be sure to visit Gasparilla Island Grill! This is my favorite quick-service restaurant in all of the Walt Disney World Resort! I could eat every meal there!
