    We are in the planning stages for a fall trip to WDW and need some advice as to which resort to stay with a 16 year old girl and a 10 year old boy while maintaining something of a budget

    Dear Jennifer, you've come to the perfect place! The Disney Parks Moms Panel is here to help you plan for a great trip!

    Your first options are the Family Suites at the Value Resorts. They are especially awesome because they all feature two bedrooms that help get everybody ready in the morning, but there are layout differences that you might want to consider. While those at Disney's All-Star Music Resort have a queen bed, a twin sleeper chair, a double sleeper sofa and a twin sleeper ottoman, the ones at Disney's Art of Animation Resort offer a queen bed, a double table bed and a double sleeper sofa. The Cars Family Suites at Disney's Art of Animation are my favorites in this category!

    Some Moderate Resorts are also great options, as some are currently more affordable than a few Value rooms for your arrival date. While prices can change without notice, they are now great options, as some rooms at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside and Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort offer cute pull-down beds that will be perfect if your boy is 5 feet tall or shorter. By staying at Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside you will also have access to complimentary boat transportation to Disney Springs, which is a great feature for my family. My husband and I love it! 

    I can't wait to know what your choice is and help you choose the best ticket option, plan your dining reservations, itineraries and FastPass+ arrangements. You've got Disney friends here to help you make your dreams come true next fall! Let's make them happen together?

    May the magic be with you,
