Thank you very much for sharing all of this with us, it gives me a lot of information. Our Caleb is a sensory seeker (first time I've heard it put that way but it does suit him!). He has to touch everything he sees! He will I think be afraid of the fireworks so we'll have to keep those for another trip. We'll see how he does with the fireworks this weekend! His Behavior Therapist went to Disney and brought back some pictures for him to see, and he was very excited to see them, he kept on saying "WOW that is cool" which is a sentence for him and long one at that, we can see how he will love WDW. Thanks for all the information.

What about AKL? Animals right at the resort?!?! I love it and I think he would enjoy seeing the animals right outside his room

I took my son (also more of a sensory seeker) one month before he turned 3, and we stayed at BWI. I would highly recommend one of the monorail or Epcot resorts if you can swing it, for the purposes of having a break. He wasn't that into the parks at that age, preferring the buses and pools. I think you should factor some of the adult preferences into your decision, and he'll enjoy what you pick. One other thing that he really enjoyed was watching Epcot fireworks (some of them, anyway) from our balcony.
