    visiting in jan 2013 with 3 boys ages 5, 20 months, 6 months. trying to decide where to stay - new AOA suites or Fort Wilderness cabins. worried about size of fort wilderness. are the cabins very disney oriented/decorated? how big is AOA property?

    Natalie, unlike most dilemmas in life, this issue only has great outcomes. No matter which resort you pick you will be happy!

    The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort have a full kitchen, bunk beds, at-the-cabin parking, and immediate access to the outdoors. All great things for a family with three small boys. The cabins have a rustic design and are not heavily Disney themed. This resort has incredible recreation choices. Carriage and pony rides, cane pole fishing, rental golf carts and boats, Chip'n Dale's Campfire Sing-a-long, and two dinner shows are a few of your entertainment options. This is a large property that has its own internal bus system.

    The family suites at Disney's Art of Animation are bold, colorful, and shiny new. Wonderfully themed to Finding Nemo, The Lion King, and Cars your boys would love the decor.The zero entry Big Blue Pool is wonderful and the resort has the Schoolyard Sprayground, a water play area geared toward young children. The mini kitchen has a small microwave and a small refrigerator. This resort is compatible in size to other value resorts and has ten guest buildings.

    Either choice will be so enjoyable for your family; you can't go wrong!
