    First trip to Disney spring break 2013. Planned on staying at AOA, now looking at port orleans riverside and it looks very nice w/the new updates! We have 5 in our family so both would be good but I need an opinion! I know the basic differences-suite/room.

    Hi Mandi!

         Wow - you have sure put me in a tough situation...  I love both of them!  Port Orleans Riverside is in the process of being renovated to include 2 Queen beds, with flip down beds in the Alligator Bayou section.  It also has a wonderful pool, great food court and is in one of the best locations!  However, in this case, I think that a suite at the new Art of Animation Resort may be my pick.  Not only is the entire resort brand new, but the extra room, two bathrooms and kitchenette will be sooo convenient.  The fact that it has its own dedicated bus line and will not share with any others, just puts the icing on the cake!

         I know that you will have a fabulous vacation, no matter which resort you choose.  Keep those questions coming!

    Much pixie dust,
