    We will be traveling with our 10 yr old daughter who will be dancing in Downtown Disney with her dance team. We are required to stay in Pop Century for 4 days, but it's a bit too small for all 7 days of our trip. where else should we stay and eat?

    Hi Crystal,

    My family has stayed at Pop Century many times, and we've always loved its theme and convenience. As our two daughters have gotten older, however, we've often looked to the moderate resorts for a bit more room. Our favorite moderates are Coronado Springs and Port Orleans Riverside. Each has beautiful grounds, great amenities and larger rooms with two queen beds.

    If you want to splurge on a deluxe resort for your final days of vacation, I recommend the Yacht Club or Beach Club resorts with the awesome Stormalong Bay pool area and easy access to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Or try the Polynesian Village Resort, with its tropical theme and ease of transportation to Magic Kingdom and, via monorail, Epcot. 

    Choosing where to eat at Walt Disney World is always the toughest part of planning for me because there are so many spots I adore. I suggest you take a look at the new dining offerings at Disney Springs as a starting point. 

    I'm out of space, Crystal, but please check back if you'd like more dining recommendations or other help. Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
