    Hi, Dan!

    I am always drawn to anything seeing the latest and greatest at Walt Disney World, so I would lean toward the new Art of Animation Resort.  Although only one section has been open a few days with more sections to follow, it is already getting rave reviews from guests.   Since this resort will have its own designated buses, I really would not worry about crowds, and with several pools and a large food court, I think this beautiful resort is ready for even a large amount of guests!

    All-Star Music is always a good choice as well with the choice of a standard room or family suite.  You may experience sharing your bus with Movies and Sports, so be prepared for additional stops and sometimes crowded buses.  At All-Star, you also have the ability to hop to Movies or Sports to use their pools or enjoy their food courts.

    My final answer:  If you enjoyed your stay at Pop Century last year, I would go for Art of Animation.  If you want a different feel, then book All-Start Music.  The great thing is you cannot go wrong with either choice as both will be amazing!   Have a great stay in January at Walt Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
