    We will be visiting WDW in 04/10 with 3 boys (ages 9,7,7) and 3 adults (2 women, 1 man). Would you recommend the Cabins in Fort Wilderness or a family suite in All Star Music? We really want the most comfortable and economical place.

    Hi Beth,

    That's a tough question because the cabin will be much more comfortable, but the family suite at All Star Music will be more economical.  The family suite is set up like a regular hotel room with a small living room attached.  The cabins are more like a home away from home.  They include a full kitchen and dining area.  It will be more expensive to stay in the cabins, but if you eat a few meals there during your stay you will save the difference in price.

    I stayed in the cabins a few years ago with another family.  My husband and I slept on the murphy bed while the other family took the bedroom with the bunk beds.  I was very surprised how comfortable the bed was especially since I was 6 months pregnant at the time.  In the mornings we would make eggs or pancakes before heading to the parks.  One night we bought burgers at the on-site store and grilled out on the deck.  I been to WDW over 20 times and have stayed at many of deluxe resorts, but that trip to the Fort Wilderness Resort is one of my all-time favorites.

    Good luck deciding on where to stay.  Hope you have a magical trip.
