    My husband and I are planning to visit WDW with our two children (ages 10 and 15) and a 15 year old friend. What would be our best bet: reserving two rooms at one of the value resorts or a family suite at the All Star Music resort?

    Hi Dana,

    I'm guessing your level of mom "coolness" has been greatly elevated since you announced that you are bringing along a friend to Disney!  I would recommend a Family Suite at the All Star Music Resort for your family plus one!  I had an opportunity to tour the suites a while back, and thought they offered a great option for families who needed a bit of extra space.  The suites are essentially the size of two rooms, but they are configured in a way that works well for families.  Each suite has two full bathrooms (which will come in handy with two teenagers), a master bedroom, kitchenette and living room that has a dining table, pull-out sofa and chair and ottoman that convert to two single beds.  The kitchenette has a microwave, coffee maker, sink and fridge, all of which will come in handy for preparing some snacks and even simple meals, and help save on concessions in the parks.  By staying in a suite, you and your husband can enjoy some privacy while the kids take charge of the living room!  In addition, you'll have the added benefit of a kitchenette, which wouldn't be available in two adjoining rooms.

    Have a wonderful trip!
