Don’t stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge if little Sally wants to ride Dumbo every single day. Here’s a guide to Disney’s resorts, based on your needs:
- If you have young children: Try the Bay Lake Tower at the Contemporary Resort, where you can walk to the toddler-friendly Magic Kingdom.
- If you want some serious pool time: Try the Beach Club Resort. Stormalong Bay, a mini water park, is on site.
- If Dad’s more of the safari type: Try the Animal Kingdom Lodge, which sits on a wilderness preserve.
- For a good value: Try the Pop Century. For a weeknight in mid-June, rooms run $124 a night, compared to $190 for a moderate-level resort (one level up from a value resort) and $310 for a deluxe-level resort.
