    Heading to Disney for the first time in late august. Two adults and 3 kids 12,7,& 6. On a budget and need some help where to stay. Looking at either a family suite at the All-Star Music or the Port Orleans riverside. What should we do? Thanks

    Hey Brian!  Those are both great resorts but my personal preference is the POR.  Looking at the ages of your children I think all three of them will enjoy sharing the trundle bed.  They are both fantastic properties but I like POR because although it's large, there never seems to me to be the same lines for WDW transportation and even in the dining area as there is at the All Star resorts.  You definitely would have more space in the family suite but if you all are planning to make a day at the parks each and every day, then I say go for the POR.
    Thanks so much for the great question, and I hope this information helps you in deciding which resort is the best one for you and your family.  Have a wonderful vacation in August and if you have any more questions, I hope you will come back to the Mom's Panel.
