    I am planning our family's first trip to Disney for January 2013! I'm so excited! We have 3 kids (9,7and 4) and have narrowed it down to either staying at Port Orleans Riverside or Pop or Art of Animation. Can you help me decide? What are bus times to MK


    Buses for both resorts are basically the same, coming about every 20 minutes. They don't publish exact stop times.

    As for selecting between the two, that is tough. Port Orleans Riverside is a great Moderate resort with a lot to do on the resort grounds, and more rooms than a typical Value resort room. But the Art of Animation's new family suites will allow you to stay up in your room after the kids have gone to bed. And you will actually get more room, since they are essentially two rooms designed into a more family-friendly accommodation.

    Bottom line: Typically I tell people that if their budget allows them to move up resort classes, they should do so. But in your case, and because the Art of Animation resort will be new, I would suggest that you try out that resort.

    Either way, you will be happy!

    Have a magical vacation!
