Disney Vacation

Planning a trip to WDW in late February. Were staying in Orlando for six (6) days but plan to do Disney for only three. Currently registered at the Hilton WDW and am very nervous about some negative info. Please make any hotel / food recommendations as I have a 7 and 4 year old.

Animal Kingdom Lodge. This is the most fabulous place you'll ever stay -- unless you get a place on the African veldt. Wild animals grazing outside your balcony. It is the coolest place. You'll love it -- the kids will too.

The restaurants there are very very good. Excellent. The pool is wonderful. I'm ready to go back.

I don't know if you wanted to only stay on Disney property, but the Homewood Suites are about a mile from Disney and have always been our first choice. They consist of very nice condo-style rooms and have a very nice complimentary full breakfast. They also have shuttle service to the Disney properties.

We stayed @ Homewood Suites- Parkway in 1998 and on property @ Port Orleans 2 years ago. Both were nice. The shuttle worked great from Homewood and we just parked our car. We used our car more when we stayed @ Port Orleans since parking was free for disney guest. It all may depend on the best rate you can get. I've also read some good reviews about the Radisson Parkway. Try website disboards.com and intercot.com for more info and chat.

I've stayed at the Hilton resort in Downtown Disney probably 4 yrs ago and loved it. Didn't have a problem. They had a nice size swimming pools. Our room was a corner room. Quite big actually. I was surprised. Rooms smelled so fresh. Nice size bathroom too. I'd definitely stay there again. We've stayed at the Grovesnor Hotel down the street and I would rather stay at the Hilton again.
The only negative I encoutered at the Hilton was someone selling timeshares in the lobby.

I agree with Tandoori Girl about Animal Kingdom Lodge but the Disney hotels can be very expensive. If you're iffy about hotels why don't you rent a villa. My husband and I rented villas many years before we finally bought our own place. With young children especially you get the option to eat, rest and play when YOU want, also the luxury of a private pool for the kids. They work out much cheaper than hotels.
