    hi - Party of 5 2 adults kids ages 9. 7 and 4.... What would you recommend. One room in riverside or pay a bit more and get two ajoining rooms at pop century. We stayed at pop last year and would be nice to stay somewhere new...

    Hi, Katherine!  I love Port Orleans Riverside, and I think it's a great option for your family.  The only concern I would have, as I travel often with my three daughters, is the inevitable potty emergencies.  It never fails - as soon as Daddy gets into the shower, someone has to use the bathroom!  I have learned over the years that everyone has to try to go before Daddy takes over!  Aside from that, I think Riverside is a great option for a family of five!

    Something else you might want to consider is a family suite at the All Star Music resort.  The suites are going to cost you right around the same amount as Port Orleans Riverside - or about the same as two rooms at Pop.  The suite gives Mom and Dad a private bedroom with a king sized bed and their own television.  The living room area has three convertible bed options.  The pull out sofa becomes a full sized bed, and the chair and ottoman convert to single beds.  There are two full bathrooms (YAY!!), and that can save a lot of time with morning showers.  You will also have a small kitchenette with a mini refrigerator and a microwave oven.  This can go a long way toward saving money on snacks and breakfasts in my family.

    I hope your family enjoys a fabulous vacation, no matter which accommodation you choose!
