    We are traveling with our 5 & 8 year old children March 29- April 2. Knowing it is one of the busiest times, would we be better off staying at Pop Century or the Dolphin based on convenience of travel between the resort and the parks?

    Hi Jennifer,

    There is a fantastic transportation wizard tool which I like to use available at

    It allows you to enter where you will be travelling to and from within Walt Disney World and then provides details on the best route(s) to take as well as giving an indication of the amount of time that the journey will take. (I would add an extra 20 minutes onto each estimated time to allow for the time which may be spent waiting for your designated mode of transport to arrive.)

    This will help you determine what you likely travel time will be from both Disney's Pop Century Resort and the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort.

    The Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort is definitely situated more conveniently as you can walk or take the boat to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios whereas you would need to travel by bus from Disney's Pop Century Resort to all of the Disney Parks. It is also within walking distance of Disney's Yacht Club, Beach Club and BoardWalk Resort hotels.

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
