We travelled with our 4 and 1.5 year old and while I barely remember Walt Disney World from my last visit when I myself was a child, nothing could prepare us for the truly magical experience of not only going to Disney World but staying there.
We had an incredible travel agent based in California - Carly at Small World Travel - and even though we were in Australia she scored us the best Disney deals. We were actually going to stay at Port Orleans (a moderate resort) but when a discount upgrade came through we snapped up the Wilderness Lodge. And we were so happy - beautifully themed resort and amenities, incredibly helpful staff, a short picturesque boat ride to the Magic Kingdom and reasonably regular fast buses to all other parks. We stayed just 6 nights and I am already planning our return visit for 12 nights - yeap, there is so much to do and see both in the parks and the resort itself that you could spend 2 weeks there.
The resort and restaurant is SUPER kid friendly, making you feel at home and welcome no matter how your kids are behaving - a total plus! The attention to detail and high level of service is what makes Disney so amazing, and admittedly it was sorely missed as we continued our trip through Florida, outside of Disney World.
I give this resort and holiday a 12 out of 10- nothing short of spectacular and worth every penny.
