    I am trying to plan a trip for my family which includes 7 adults and 4 children ages 4,6 and 8. The trip would include staying in Disney world in Orlando for 1 week. I would like recommendations for lodging that would be appropriate for my grand children

    Hello Lenny! I love hearing that you’ve made your grandchildren the top priority as you plan your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    My top recommendation for children that are the age of your grandchildren is Disney’s Art of Animation Resort! This resort is the “Disney-est” of all hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection! There are actually four areas of this resort! Each is themed for different Disney and Disney-Pixar movies. They are The Lion King, Cars, The Little Mermaid, and Finding Nemo! There are life-sized (and larger than life-sized) character statues at every turn throughout the resort! From the resort rooms to the three resort pools, all four of the hotels give you the feeling of being immersed in the movies!

    This value resort hotel is priced slightly higher than other value resorts because of the family suites that are available. There are pools at The Little Mermaid, Cars, and Finding Nemo areas of the resort. Guests staying in The Lion King area of the resort are welcome to use any of the pools! Lenny, at some point during your visit, be sure to walk to the other areas of the resort! They are all great to explore with the kids!

    Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is conveniently linked to the complimentary Disney Skyliner transportation system making travel to both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT easy for the whole family! To me, the Disney Skyliner actually feels like an “attraction ride.” Complimentary Disney bus service is provided for Magic Kingdom Park and Disney's Animal Kingdom!

    I hope you and your grandchildren have the best time visiting! Let us know if we can help with any other planning questions.
