A little over a year ago, I was introduced to MomAboard, an on-line trip planning service that produces customized itineraries for families for destinations around the world. Instead of parents wasting countless hours researching for a family trip, they can connect with a MomAboard Mombassador who will plan a personalized vacation based on their needs. I happen to be the Mombassador for Chicago, but on a recent trip to New York City, I decided to use a MomAboard trip planner to make our itinerary. Not only did it save us time, it was the best money I spent on the entire trip!

When visiting Orlando, families tend to spend their days running around from theme park to theme park, but that doesn’t mean they don’t want a fabulous resort to return to at the end of the day. I think I have lost track when it comes to the number of properties we have explored in the Orlando area, but these are some we would recommend for families based on their amenities, location, and let’s be honest, cleanliness. It’s hard to narrow down the properties, but we think these are the 8 best family resorts in Orlando.
