    We have booked little mermaid room at art of animation, there are 4 in my family 2 adults boy 9 and girl 5. I am worried about the room being cramped. If I can swing the price of upgrade which for 12 nights is $2000 would you go with a family suite?

    Hi, Christina!

    Normally I would tell you that you will not be in your room that much, so save your valuable vacation dollars and stick with the standard room.  However, with a 12 night vacation, each of you may start to need some personal space after a while!

    In a Little Mermaid room, you will have about 260 square feet with 2 double beds and 1 bathroom. With the upgrade to one of the Family Suites, you would double your space to 520 square feet, have a separate bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, and a kitchenette. You really do pick up a lot of benefits with the suite.

    Weigh the pros and cons, but I know if my budget allowed the upgrade to the suite, I would personally go for it. I love my kids and all, but sometimes mommy needs just a bit of distance from the little darlings!

    Regardless of which room type you decide on, have a great stay at Disney's Art of Animation Resort.
