I am going to be 'stopping in' (LOL) this April. We will be visiting family, but we are going to surprise my daughter and drive up to Disney for 1 night. She is only 4, and I can't decide where to stay. We are going to only do MK the first day, and then AK the second.

I was leaning towards either AKL, WL or BC. There will be 3 adults and my 4 year old. What should we do? We will be taking a stroller to the parks if that makes a difference.

I would go with a MK resort. Have you considered one of the monorail resorts?

I would pick a monorial resort as well if you are concerned about the price the WL is also a good option.

Good Luck

I would say AKL with a savanna view if it's in the budget

We recently stayed for the first time at the AKL lodge with a savannah view - it was wonderful - I only regret that my 7 year old granddaughter was not with me on this trip.......she would have LOVED it!!

Dumb question, but what is the transportation from the AKL to AK? Is it close?

If I do WL, I could do the boar ride to the MK right? Is it much slower or worse than using the monorail (and staying at a monorail resort?)

Thanks for all your help!

I also vote for a monorail resort, for one night why not splurge? Polynesian is my vote. :)

AKL or WL.

Either way, you're visiting the two parks that are the most farthest out. If you pick a resort near one, you still need to allow travel time to the other.

I would skip the BC/YC until you have a trip that includes Epcot. While they are goregous resorts, they are pricey if you don't plan on using their proximity to walk to Epcot or DHS.

Have a nice time w/ your daughter!

It's a bus for AKL to AK. It's a quick trip.

We stayed at WL last May and fell in love with it. It was very nice taking the "boar" ride:rotfl: sorry - I couldn't help myself.....that would be one exciting ride!

Anyway I would pick the WL!!

Have fun!

The WL & AKL are two goreous resorts!!!! You will love either! The proximity and excitement of the boat ride (notice I didn't say boar ;) ) of WL to MK kind of puts that one above AKL, to me.
