    Back again for opinions. I currently have a 10night/11day package (Park Hopper and dining) at AOA. I see the summer package is available. Should I stay at AOA, save money by staying at Pop,or Upgrade to POR Royal Rooms? I'm Torn

    Hi Cartier! I think that your decision should be based on what your heart truly desires and also what your family needs.

    If your family is looking for extra space I would stay with your original choice of Disney’s Art of Animation Resort. I feel that there is plenty of space here with a separate bedroom, two bathrooms, a dinette area, and two additional beds, these family suites are the perfect spot for families. I also love that this resort takes you into some of your favorite Disney Pixar movies. Another great reason to stay here is that you don't have to share your Disney bus with any other resort hotel!

    If you are traveling on a budget or looking to participate in some fun “extra’s” such as Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Magic Kingdom Park or the Downtown Disney Area, then I would choose Disney’s Pop Century Resort. This resort has my heart as the price is always right for my family. I love that the resort doesn’t seem too spread out and my kids love the pool and food court! I am always looking for ways to save when I travel to the Walt Disney World Resort, so for me this would be my first choice! When we are able to save money by choosing a value resort; it allows me to splurge a bit more on shopping or an extra dessert!

    If you’re looking for a really regal room then the Royal Guest Rooms at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort - Riverside are perfect for you! The theme is breathtaking and they didn’t forget any detail. I will say as much as I love this resort, it is quite spread out and there are multiple bus stops. If you’re traveling with kids that tend to be impatient like mine, I would take the size of the property and multiple bus stops into account.

    Whatever resort hotel you choose I hope it is the perfect fit for your family! Have a magical trip!
