    I am traveling to WDW in May of this year. We want to stay at one of the resorts, because we are planning on taking a break mid day. Are the busses a good idea for this visit, or would we be better off staying at a resort with monorail access?

    Hi Lisa,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question. I have stayed in many different Disney Resort hotels over the years and like many of my fellow Panelists, have my favorites.

    You can build breaks into your day when you stay at any of the Disney Resort hotels, but there is something to be said about location. If your budget allows, staying closer to the action will save you travel time so you can be well rested and back in the parks for more fun. The Resort Monorail is quick and fun to experience and just being in the middle of the magic adds excitement to a vacation. 

    That said, don't count out the other Resort hotels just yet. Busses may take longer, but they are reliable and run at all times of the day. My favorite value Resort hotel is Disney's Pop Century Resort. We found the busses to be easy and direct. My kids love the fun and bright theming as well.

    Either way, I think you are smart to plan some breaks into your trip. You will be glad you did!

    Happy planning,

    Andrea U.
