    Hi Stacey!

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World (WDW)!

    Disney's Art of Animation (AoA) is a wonderful resort! The family suites are wonderful for families who want room for spreading out. With a separate master bedroom, two bathrooms and a kitchenette, it offers plenty of space for families. The pool at Art of Animation is also amazing! It's the largest pool throughout all of Walt Disney World and you can even hear music under the water. I also love the food court at this resort, as it offers something for everyone. The only downside to AoA is that it's not as close to the parks as Yacht Club or the Polynesian. 

    Disney's Polynesian Resort is my family's favorite resort. It's a beautifully themed resort and the restaurants here are amazing! You can enjoy 'Ohana, which is located in the resort, and the breakfast is amazing! You can eat with Lilo and Stitch. Dinner is amazing, with Hawaiian bread, skewered meats, salad, noodles, dumplings and bread pudding. The Polynesian is also the only WDW resort on the monorail line for both Epcot and Magic Kingdom! This will cut down on your commute to the parks.

    Disney's Yacht Club Resort is absolutely amazing! You can enjoy wonderful restaurants, including Beaches & Cream which is home to the famous Kitchen Sink. Yacht Club is located on the Boardwalk, which means you are a short walk away from the back entrance to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. 

    I hope this helps you make your decision!
