    Hi! We are planning a family trip for fall 2014. There will be 4 adults and a 4 year old. We keep going back and forth: would we be better off doing a family suite (AoA) or 2 separate rooms?

    Hi there, Elaine!

    Decisions, decisions! There are so many fun options to choose from that it can definitely be a little hard to decide.

    Since you have 5 people in your family including your preschooler, I'm going recommend a Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. These suites sleep up to 6 people and they have 2 full bathrooms making it much more affordable than 2 separate rooms. Not to mention, it's really comfortable for everyone with the 2 bathrooms. You'll even have a kitchenette so you'll be able to have a quick bowl of cereal or instant oatmeal for breakfast before hitting the Parks. Something that's really important to my family is having a "living room" to sit around together so we can debrief about the magical day we'd just had.

    Another one of my favorite things about staying at Disney's Art of Animation Resort is taking a stroll through all 4 sections of the Resort. The theming of each section is truly amazing. It feels as though you're standing right in the middle of a real movie set!

    I sure hope a few of my family's favorite things help with your decision, Elaine! Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel and please let us know if you have any other questions we can help with.

    Wishing you and your family a Pixie Dusted vacation!
