    We will be visiting WDW at the beginning of April, 4 adults and 3 kids ages 8-10, we are on a strict budget. All the kids love swimming; which value resort would you recommend...a room for each family or stay as one large group? 1st trip for all !!!!

    Always great to hear from a fellow Ontarian, Michelle. My daughter loves the Value resorts, and we have stayed at Pop Century, All Star Movies and Music recently, and visited All Star Sports. The theming at each resort is fantastic, so I recommend visiting the Walt Disney World website with your kids and looking at the pictures of each to help in your decision.

    We loved the daily pool-side activities at the All Star Music resort. There were contests, dance lessons, pool volleyball, bingo, trivia challenges and more, and pool-side Disney movies each night. My daughter loved watching a movie while floating in the pool!  Another bonus about staying that the All Stars is that use can use the pools and facilities and any of the All Stars, all of which are walking distance, with Music being in between the two.

    Music also has the new family suites, which feature two rooms and a kitchenette, but with seven guests, including four adults, I'd recommend two rooms.

    You can't beat the value the All Stars and Pop Century offer, and the kids love the theming!  I'm sure you'll have a great time whichever resort you choose!

    Have a magical vacation Michelle!
