    We will be traveling with our two year old daughter to WDW this summer and were wondering which of the hotels on the monorail is best for little kids? I know it is more expensive so is it worth the extra money to stay some place with the monorail?


    It is difficult to spend someone else's money, but if the price of a Deluxe resort is within your means, I do think that these resorts are a great perk with a younger child. The ability to literally drop in and out of the Magic Kingdom is a particularly nice benefit when you are here with a small child, especially one that might need an afternoon nap. The Wilderness Lodge is not bad either, though that boat ride is quite a bit longer.

    So which should you do, of the three (Contemporary, Grand Floridian, Polynesian)? They really are all very nice.

    I am partial to the Polynesian, because I love that fun, almost campy, Hawaiian luau atmosphere. I think kids seem to like it too.

    The Contemporary is nice, especially after their recent room renovations (2006). But I think that the rest of the resort is a bit cold in it's decor, and not as welcoming to children.

    The Grand Floridian has Victorian beauty, and is a great choice for a budding princess. I am not as crazy about the rooms here, but they are still nice.

    I am glad to answer any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
