    I have priced AoA and found it almost the same price as a Deluxe. Would you recommend a Moderate or Deluxe over AoA or try out AoA? We have always been All Stars and POP Century resort family but would want to give another resort a try. Recommend?

    Hi Monica!

    We are delighted to be assisting with the planning of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! You are wise to consider staying at a Disney Resort.  There are over 20 resorts to choose from with rooms to fit every budget! So far, my family and I have stayed at 16 of them and they are all wonderful! Although Disney's Art of Animation Resort is awesome, if I had to choose between it and a Deluxe or Moderate, I would recommend the upgrade. Typically the moderate and deluxe resorts offer more amenities. I like the different modes of transportation offered such as the monorail or the water/boat transportation to the parks as well as the proximity to the parks.  I would recommend that you check out the different resorts and what they have to offer. You can do so by visiting this page: Disney Resorts. Also be sure to check out the Special Offers for resort stays. 

    Did you know?
    : Staying at a Disney Resort comes with lots of benefits. One of my favorites is the Extra Magic Hours where Guests can enjoy the parks before they open to the general public and after they close to the general public. Additionally, Disney Resort Guests can make their FastPass+ selections up to 60 days before check-in when you have a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation!  Be sure to download your My Disney Experience App for your smart phone!

    Happy Planning!
