    We are travelling with a 5 year old girl and 2 year old boy. Wondering which resort would be the best - Polynesian, Grand Floridian, or Art of Animation for those ages. And do any resorts have rooms the same as suites at Art of Animation?

    Hi there Kendra,

    While Disney's Art of Animation Resort, one of Disney's newest resorts, offers fun rooms with lots of elbow room, I'd have to say I would definitely go with either Grand Floridian or Polynesian Village because of their convenience to bothe the Magic Kingdom and Epcot via the Monorail System.  Having this ultra fast method of transportation just steps from your resort hotel room is going to save so much time and think of how easy it's going to be to slip away from the parks mid-afternoon for a nap or some pool time.  

    Another great thing about both of these resorts is the fact that there is a beach area facing the Magic Kingdom and Cinderella Castle and the nightly fireworks shows can be viewed right from your resort with music piped in to add to the excitement.  There are amazing dining options at each of these Deluxe Resorts as well as shopping and activities for the little ones.

    In my opinion, you just can't beat the convenience of the Monorail Loop Resorts and both Grand Floridian and Polynesian Village are equally amazing and sure to impress.  Polynesian Village is definitely more laid back with a super-chill, island vibe, while Grand Floridian has this classy, old-world vibe of sophistication... but still very casual at the same time.  

    Hope this helps,
