    We want to take our 6 year old daughter to Disney for the first time this year? I am so lost. What is the best hotel to stay at that is not too expensive? What things should we see and how far in advance do we book them? Please help. Thanks, Maryann

    Disney has four Value Resorts:  All of which are located in the Animal Kingdom area.  I loved Disney's All-Star Sports, because it was the first hotel stop, the rooms were good sized, and the pools were fantastic. The downside was that the bus that goes to the All-Star Sports also goes to All-Star Movies and All-Star Music.  Sometimes, we would have to wait a bus or two to get on, and that was hard, particularly when everyone is hot and tired.  I like Disney's Pop Century, mostly because it has one bus stop and one resort on that bus, so you aren't sharing.  The downside, you might have to walk alittle farther to your room. If you request the 1950's building there is no extra cost, unlike the 1960's building, but it's almost as close.  The food court is extremely stimulating to young eyes, she will just enjoy going and seeing all the neat stuff.  If you take her to the playground watch for the interactive water fountain. 


    Above all, Have fun!!! Heather M.
