    We are staying at Disney in January 2014-6 adults and 2 kids(4&6) needing 2 rooms. We are contemplating either staying at AOA (Finding Nemo suites) or the Port of Orleans-Riverside with Royal Guest rooms. Which resort would you reccommend?

    Hi Kristi!

    Wow!  That's a tough one!  My all-time favorite resort is Port Orleans - Riverside, so I'd go Royal Rooms, but let's take a look at your decision objectively...

    The Family Suites are fabulous, and the addition of a kitchenette at your disposal is a added plus.  Will you use it?  Otherwise, it'd be something that you'd be paying for but not using.  It's also great to have separate areas for kids and adults on the trip, and the Family Suites will offer you more space to stretch out.

    Disney's Art of Animation Resort is Disney's newest resort, and it is remarkable!  So much fun, and larger-than-life!  Are the kids huge Nemo fans?  Or do you have 2 princesses?

    The Royal Guest Rooms at Port Orleans - Riverside are fabulous, and you'd be request connecting rooms as well.  I love all the special touches that they've added to the rooms, and the light show on the headboard of the bed is simply magical!

    I hope this helps! 

    Whichever you choose, have a magical vacation!
