    Planning a trip to disney this sept. 2 adults 2 children (1 and 3yrs). We are stuggling where to stay. At a moderate resort or a family suite at ASM or Animation. Is it better to have the extra space in the room or the additional amenties at a moderate

    Hi Shelley!

    With just 2 adults and 2 children, you could easily fit within a standard room at a Disney Value Resort.  My favorite Disney Value Resort is currently Pop Century, though it might be replaced by the new Disney's Art of Animation Resort.  The concept art for the new resort looks fabulous.

    A Family Suite at a Disney Value Resort gives you a lot more room, but it is relatively expensive for the extra space you get.  I have routinely been able to get two connecting standard rooms at a Disney Moderate Resort for less money than a Family Suite.  You should decide if you need all of the features of the Family Suite.

    Otherwise, I recommend getting one room at a Disney Moderate Resort.  My two favorite Disney Moderate Resorts are Port Orleans Riverside and Port Orleans French Quarter.  To be honest, I think the other Disney Moderate Resorts are too large to get around easily (either the resort or the rest of Walt Disney World) unless you have your own car.  I personally prefer Port Orleans Riverside, but many guests absolutely love French Quarter.  I don't think you can go wrong with either resort.

    I hope this helps!  It is a hard decision.  Good luck and write back if you have any more questions!
