    We are travelling to WDW for the first time in March and have a 13G and 5B. We cant decide which resort hotel would be best. We want easy access to WDW. I was thinking Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Universal Studios and maybe Epcot would be for them. ?

    Hi, Karen!  I might need some more information to help you with a resort selection, but I'll do my best!  The easiest access to both the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT may be a resort on the monorail.  You'll find easy monorail access at the Polynesian Resort, the Grand Floridian, and the Contemporary.  These are all deluxe resorts, so they are at the higher end of the budget, but they offer some of the larger rooms available, and you'll find they each have table service restaurants, arcades, and other deluxe amenities.

    If you want something more moderately priced, check out the Caribbean Beach Resort.  The main pool area has an awesome play area that your five year old would probably enjoy immensely, and you can even book a special pirate themed room.  Another resort my kids love is the Port Orleans French Quarter.  They love the pool area there, and they enjoy grabbing a beignet for breakfast at the food court.

    For value resorts, my preference would be Disney's Pop Century resort.  You'll be using bus transportation for the most part, but the buses at Pop Century are pretty well dedicated to that resort and tend to be a little less crowded than at the All Star Resorts.

    Any of the Walt Disney World theme parks have something for people of any age.  Magic Kingdom, Disney's Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, and Disney's Animal Kingdom all have family friendly attractions, plenty of great places to eat, and wonderful shopping opportunities!

    I hope you have a great vacation!
