    I am planning a trip with my DH, DD 5 & 8, and mom. Based on pool and transportation would you reccomend AOA suite or 2 moderates? If moderates, which one? We do lots of meals at other resorts. Thanks

    Hi Susan!

    This is a great question. If your children were older I would probably recommend staying at Port Orleans Riverside which is my favorite Disney Moderate Resort. It is large, but not too spread out. It has good theming and a good pool area. It also has boat service to Downtown Disney which is a fun and relaxing way to get there, especially at night. 

    However, with children that are your age I definitely recommend staying at the new Art of Animation Resort. It is a fabulous resort with awesome theming, a nice pool or young children, and the best food court on property. It also has great bus service. It is definitely the way to go since you are already considering it. 

    I hope this helps. Good luck with your decision, and please write back with more questions.
