    Will be at WDW. Middle of June. Have 2 kids, 17 & 14, girl, boy. Trying to pick best resort to stay at, for their ages. All Star Sports or Art of Animation ? For 8 days. Any thoughts??

    Hi, Alexis! Deciding between the All-Star Sports Resort and the Art of Animation Resort, I would choose Art of Animation for a few reasons.  First of all, it is the newest Resort on property.  Each of the sections make you feel as though you have been dropped into the movie.  There is not a section of the Resort I don't like.  The pools are terrific!  The Big Blue Pool is my kids' (ages 15 and 13) favorite.   It even has music piped in underwater.  I like the pool at the Cozy Cone Motel in the Cars Section myself.  The rooms at the All-Star Sports Resort are about 260 square feet, and the standard room at the Art of Animation Resort is approximately 277 square feet.  Even this small difference matters with four people trying to get ready.  I also like the Food Court better at Art of Animation.  One final reason is that it has dedicated bus service.  By that I mean that it doesn't share with any other Resorts.  All three of the All-Star Resorts share buses. It's no question which one I would choose.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
