    This will be our 5th trip to Disney; first year was at the Beach Club, thereafter we stayed at Animal Kingdom Lodge; this time around we are considering the suite at all star music, but I just don't know...HELP, I don't want to make a choice we will regret

    Hi, Dorothy!   I don't think I have ever regretted a resort choice at WDW!  I certainly have like certain resorts more than others, but each have unique qualities to enjoy.

    Here are things that you may have enjoyed at the Beach Club and Animal Kingdom Lodge that you will NOT have at a Value Resort:  sit down restaurants, larger rooms, double sinks in the bathrooms, interior hallways (all doors in Value and Moderate Resorts open to the outside, not a hallway), a slide in the pool, and hot tub.   You may also notice the quality of linens and toiletries are nicer at a Deluxe Resort.

    There are advantages of the Family Suite!   First of all, the cost!   You will spend much less per night.   Also, by having a Family Suite vs. a standard room (not a villa) at a Deluxe, you pick up an 2nd bathroom, separate living area, a kitchenette.  Not a bad deal!

    The Family Suites at All-Star Music sleep 6 (1 queen bed in the bedroom and pull out beds in the living area.)   This works well for families with 3 or 4 kids or teens that like to sleep in so you have 2 different sleeping areas, each with its own TV.

    Whatever you decide, I hope you have a great vacation!

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!
