    I have a party of 5 staying at Disney this Sept. Me,DH, Son(5) and Daughter(3) & my Dad. We are torn between All-Star Music Family Suite or Port Orleans Alligator room w/ trundle. PO is actually cheaper, but how do the two compare? Thanks!

    Both would work for your party, Felicia, though there are some differences.  Most notable is probably the space.  While the All-Star family suite will afford your family two full bathrooms, a separate bedroom, and a kitchenette, Port Orleans Riverside standard rooms offer significantly less.  Port Orleans rooms offer a small trundle (large enough for a young child) and a refrigerator.  There is no separate sleeping space and you'll only have one bathroom.  The perks of a stay at Port Orleans Riverside lie in the amenities the resort as a whole offers.  Port Orleans Riverside offers a table-service restaurant, where as the All-Stars offer only a food court.  So, too, do the moderate resorts (like Port Orleans Riverside) offer additional recreational opportunities and detailed theming.  Hopefully, that insight will help you to reach a decision as to the best resort home for your family!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
