    I am trying to decide between the Contemporary with a MK view :) or Value Movie Room , my kids are 6 and 4. I see the magic of seeing the MK from our room but also being surrounded by the deco of Movie room. Are there other advantages to help me decide

    Hi, Michelle!   You are comparing 2 VERY different rooms!    Here are your differences:

    -Walking distance to Magic Kingdom
    -Sit-down restaurants plus food court
    -Beautiful lobby with shops and the monorail zipping right through
    -Easy access to Polynesian and Grand Floridian on monorail
    -Huge pool with water slide
    -Marina with boat rental
    -Queen beds
    -Tower rooms have amazing views of either Magic Kingdom or Bay Lake
    -All the luxuries of a fine resort: great linens, spacious rooms, room service, and more

    -Bus service to all locations
    -Food Court only
    -Pizza delivery available in the evenings
    -Double beds

    Obviously, you are going to get  a LOT more luxury and convenience staying at Contemporary.  But it comes at a price!  While prices are subject to change, just for comparison I looked at a weekend night during the summer (regular season) and per night, All-Star is $120 and Contemporary/MK View is $520.

    Your kids are going to love wherever you stay.   It is up to  you if you don't mind longer transportation times of the All-Star, or if the Contemporary's prices can fit your budget.   Always check "special offers" at before booking - this is a great way to save money.

    Good luck deciding and have a magical 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!
