    I have two kids, ages 10 and 6, and I'm trying to figure out the best resort to stay at. Do you have any recommendations? I want to make sure that the resort is one that both a boy and a girl will enjoy, as well as my husband and I.

    There are so many wonderful resorts to choose from at Walt Disney World that it's difficult to choose only one! I'll give you my favorite from each category:

    Grand Floridian is a wonderful resort and truly is decadent. The resort has a beautiful theme and Senses, the new spa, is indulgent. They have wonderful spa services, including massage, facial, manicure, pedicure and more. The locker room is peaceful, with a whirlpool spa, sauna and heated lounge chairs. The restaurants at this resort are also wonderful, they have Victoria & Albert's, Disney's own five-star dining experience.

    Coronado Springs is my favorite moderate resort, and really my favorite resort all around. They have a wonderful pool with slides and they have a quiet "lap" pool. They are the only moderate resort with a fitness facility. There is also a one-mile jogging trail around the Lago Dorado, which is wonderful for logging miles while on vacation. The food court, Pepper Market Grill, is also delish and my favorite Quick Service option at all of the resorts! 

    Art of Animation is a great resort for families because the rooms are large (parents can have separate master bedroom), there is a kitchenette and the theme is great for kids. The Big Blue Pool is the largest among all of the Disney Resorts and the food court is amazing. The only downside is that there is not an onsite fitness facility, as none of the value resorts have them.
