    My husband and are traveling to WDW end of May 2012 with twin 3yr boys and 11yr old daughter. We need room for 5 to sleep comfortably. We are trying to decide between the ALL Star Movies Suites and a room at PNO Riverside that has a trundle bed.

    Hi, Kimberly!

    The first step of solving your dilemma is done; you're looking at one of the 192 Family Suites at the All-Star Music Resort, or a five-person occupancy room at Port Orleans Riverside.

    The 520-square foot, two bathroom family suites, located in the Calypso and Jazz buildings in All-Star Music sleep up to 6 (plus one child under 3 in a crib). Each one features a kitchenette with a 4.3 cubic-foot refrigerator, a microwave, a sink, coffeepot, and counter space.

    The main bedroom offers a queen bed; the second bedroom has a double sleeper sofa, a convertible twin chair sleeper, and a convertible twin ottoman

    A room at Port Orleans Riverside is a 314-square foot single bedroom with a single bath. There are two double beds and a trundle underneath the bed closest to the door, which will easily accommodate your littlest sleeper.  And please be aware that the commode and the shower are in the same water closet.

    With little ones who might still require afternoon naps, you might appreciate the space in the All-Star Music. Your older child can watch television or read in one room, while the little ones can rest quietly in an entirely different area. And the kitchenette will certainly come in handy for breakfasts, snacks, and the all-important morning coffee!! I think the dual restrooms are also a big selling point when you're traveling with younger ones who "gotta go" when they've "gotta go."

    The Value Resorts do offer pools, games and activities for the children, a food court, and on-site shopping. You'll enjoy DIsney theming and excellent hospitality, too.

    See you later, celebrator!
