    Hi Just got home from WDW and looking to book another trip Jan17. It has to be cost effective so I really would like an opinion, A of A Mermaid room or Pop Century Preferred room? I haven't stayed at either. Also, how are crowd levels in mid Jan?

    Hi Amy!

    I know the excitement of booking another trip to the most magical place on earth right after coming back from a trip! January is a wonderful time of year to visit, especially after the Walt Disney World (WDW) Marathon Weekend. The crowd levels are low and the weather is great. All of the WDW resorts are wonderful, so you really can't go wrong, but I particularly love the Art of Animation Resort. The Big Blue Pool is the largest pool throughout all of WDW and you can actually hear music under the water! The Landscape of Flavors is my favorite food court throughout all of WDW because there are so many healthy food options, from a Greek Yogurt Parfait Station to salads to grilled meat and veggies, there is something for everyone. 

    Art of Animation also has a great arcade and the theming is so much fun! I think you'll love it!
