    We currently have reservations at AOA but got a free dining plan offer and if we use it we have to switch to a suite at All-Star Music. We are torn between the price savings (pretty significant amount) and our desire to stay at AOA. Looking for some advice

    Hi there, Caelin!

    I can certainly appreciate your predicament!  It's often so difficult to make thees types of decisions.  I truly believe that all of the Walt Disney Resorts offer unique and magical immersive experiences.   Disney's NEW Art of Animation Resort is fabulously themed.  It's completely amazing.  You'll be blown away by the ingenious animated designs here.  I wish that I could make this decision for you, but I think you'll really have to look at what's more important to you; saving money or staying at a one-of-a- kind resort.  Don't get me wrong, Disney's All-Star Music Resort is also a fun place to stay.  I think you have to choose between budget versus new unique resort.  

    Please let me know if I can help you plan in any additional way!

    Until then, I wish you a magical vacation!
