    Looking at taking advantage of the free meal plan offer in September. My question is should we stay at the new art of animation hotel in a suite or at the animal kingdom lodge. This is our first trip to Disney. 2 kids 5 & 6 yrs old and 2 adults.

    Hi Tara - I'll start out by saying that both of those are excellent options.  My kids love the Animal Kingdom Lodge, and my husband and I really enjoy it also.  It's such a warm, welcoming hotel.

    However, a few weeks ago, I got a sneak peak at the Art of Animation Nemo section and my kids absolutely loved it.  They've been begging to stay there since.  So, given the choice, I'd recommend staying at the Art of Animation.  You'll have more space, and the kids will really love the hotel.

    I hope that helps!  Have a great vacation!
