    We are traveling with a 7 yr old and 1 1/2 yr old this Feb and we are looking for the best resort that isn't too expensive but is close to Magic Kingdom or has easy transportation access to Magic Kingdom. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel, Amelia! Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation! It will be here before you know it! With little ones, I can definitely understand wanting to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort that offers close proximity and easy access to Magic Kingdom Park. I would personally recommend staying at Disney's Wilderness Lodge which is a short motor launch (water taxi) ride from Magic Kingdom Park. Although Disney's Wilderness Lodge is in the Deluxe category, room rates are traditionally much lower than the Magic Kingdom Resorts that offer monorail transportation to the park. I have stayed at Disney's Wilderness Lodge many times myself and have always been thoroughly pleased with the guest room accommodations and resort location. I hope this information helps! Please don't hesitate to visit me again with any additional questions regarding Walt Disney World Resorts or your upcoming vacation. Best wishes for a magical trip, Amelia!
    Happy Planning,
