    Help! Booked in Family Ste at ASM in May (2A,3C). Now worried that we will spend all our time on transport. Considering switching to studio at BCV to cut down on transport times. Also looking at AOA so we can stay in suite. Which would be better?

    Howdy Kristin!  Thanks so much for your question!!

    The time to and from the theme parks should be fairly comparable regardless of whether you are at Disney's All-Star Music Resort or Disney's Art of Animation Resort.  I have never visited All-Star Music but I did have the chance to visit Art of Animation and it is phenomenal.  If you have the chance to stay there, I would encourage you to do so though I'm confident you will also enjoy the family suite at All-Star Music!

    Disney's Beach Club Villas are amazing!  Beach Club is one of our home resorts and one of our favorite resorts.  You are within walking distance to Epcot and a short boat ride to Disney's Hollywood Studios.  I would highly encourage you to consider Beach Club Villas. However - and this is a huge however - the studios only accommodate 4 people and based on your party size, you would be required to reserve two studios or a combination of villas that would accommodate your party.  Based on current rates for the time you are planning to be there, the price of your room would more than double per night at Beach Club.

    I know you will have a magical time regardless of the resort hotel you select.  They all have unique characteristics that enhance your vacation experience.  The fact that you are thinking about your transportation needs now is half the battle.  Just be sure to give yourself ample time to get to your destination and then enjoy each magical memory.

    Please let me know what you decide and if you need further information about any of the resorts you are considering.

    Thanks again for your question and have a magical day!!
