    First visit for our family, friends are telling us not to stay at a value resort suite, to spend our money on a moderate hotel closer to the park, so we dont have to take the shuttles? Our first choice is AOA!! What is your opinion on this debate? TY

    Hi Wendy - You'll have to take a bus to all of the theme parks, whether you stay at a value resort or a moderate resort.  The only exception is the Port Orleans resorts, where you can take a boat to Downtown Disney.  If you want to stay at a deluxe resort, you can take a monorail, boat, or walk to some of the theme parks, but that's a step up, price wise.

    If your first choice is the Art of Animation resort, that's where I'd recommend you stay.  While I haven't stayed there yet, I did get a sneak peek of it a few months ago, and it's lots of fun.  I'm not sure the ages of your children or how many people are in your group, however, but that's what I'd suggest.

    Have fun planning your vacation!
