    For a family of five with three boys under 8, which would be a better value during free dining? The Alligator Bayou room at Riverside or a Suite at Art of Animation. Also, which would have the shorter bus waiting times to and from the resorts to parks?

    Hi, Sara! Of course, things are always subject to change, but so far, the Art of Animation Resort has been excluded from all special offers this year.  So, I wouldn't plan on that being an option.  So, if free dining becomes available during your travel window, Port Orleans Riverside would be the way to go. I would go ahead and make my reservations now. The free dining promotions and other special offers are quite popular, and I know many Guests are hoping for them this year.  Then, if promotions are released, you can modify your reservation to include this deal, subject to availability.  Disney will not automatically modify your reservation, you will need to call 407-W-DISNEY to check availability and make the change, if possible. There will not be a fee to update the same reservation with the promotion.  Keep an eye on the Special Offers page for one that might work for you, your travel dates, and your accommodations.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
