    Hi, this will be my family's second time visiting WDW. Planning on Thanksgiving 2010. This time my mother will be joining us and I can't decide which resort to stay at with room for 5, All Star Music Suite or The Wilderness Lodge. Any suggestions?

    Hi Cherie!

         The Wilderness Lodge is the perfect place to spend your Thanksgiving vacation!  As Louisiana girls, we don't get to experience too many cozy Fall nights - more like muggy, humid nights spent swatting at mosquitos.  While the weather isn't too much different in Florida, the Wilderness Lodge is such a great escape from the norm!  From its soaring timbered ceilings, to its enormous fireplace and rocking chairs, this resort is the perfect destination for Thanksgiving.  It is also really close to the Magic Kingdom and will be completely decked out for the Holidays.  

        On the other hand, the All Star Family Suites are huge!  The are around 520 square feet, compared to 344 square feet at the Wilderness Lodge.  They also feature a kitchenette and separate bedroom.  This may be important, considering that your mom will be joining you.   

         You may want to have your family check out the pics and reviews found on  This really is a tough decision, but you can't go wrong either way!

    Much pixie dust,
