    HI, I was wondering if you could recommend the best hotel in the Disney park for teenagers. Thank you

    ChEARs Bobbi!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We have two teenagers (I can't believe one of them is almost an adult. Our eldest turns 18 in July - make time stop!), and we often have to balance their enjoyment of the Parks with their younger siblings. The great thing about the Most Magical Place on EARth is there is always something for every age to enjoy!

    So, I think when you consider the best Resort for teenagers, it's all about things to do, ease of access to the Parks, and giving them a sense of independence. I love Disney's Art of Animation Resort for young adults. The theming tends towards the littles, but the amenities, food court, and Family Suites are a teenager's dream! The Family Suites let you keep an eye on your "pre-adults" but also give everyone space. Landscape of Flavors has five delicious food service stations, so everyone is sure to find something they like (decreasing those "tense" conversations that can come up with teens!). The Resort connects to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios by the Disney Skyliner, which, if you are comfortable, allows them a bit of safe independence to travel on their own.

    Any of the Magic Kingdom Park Resorts are also tops on my list! The Monorail connects three of the Resorts, and water transportation makes Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort super accessible. Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is an all-time favorite because of its amenities. The kids will love the pool, and you can rent Sea Raycers for high-octane fun! The beach area is fantastic, and they can make new friends during a round of volleyball. You are also on the Monorail, and a quick walk away from the Ticket & Transportation Center, where they can jump on the Monorail to EPCOT.

    Circling back to Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, I think the Cabins are a fantastic option for teen families! Like the Family Suites, you have more room to spread out, with bunk beds and living room sleep options. But mainly the things to do at the Resort are fantastic! The kids can fish, ride horses, channel Robin Hood, swim, and more. They can safely explore for hours (honestly, days!), and are a quick boat ride away from Magic Kingdom Park. They'll be occupied, and you can have a bit of down-time, it's a win-win!

    Bobbi, if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to come back. I wish you a magical vacation.
