We love Disney World and have stayed at every level of hotels from value resorts to deluxe. We like all the levels for different reasons. After wrestling with which hotel to book for our current trip either the cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort or a family suite at All-Star Music Resort. In the end we chose the suite.
In the suite there is one bedroom with a queen bed, three pull out options in the “living room” for sleeping, a small refrigerator, and two bathrooms. In the cabins we would have gotten a full kitchen but the sleeping arrangements only allow for the kids in the bedroom and there is a full-sized bed in the bedroom with bunk beds. We are to the point that we all cannot sleep together easily. If we had stayed in the living room there is no separation from the kids for the entire vacation. They need space and we need space to decompress. Plus the kids can both navigate the Music Resort on their own and go to the food court or the pool by themselves. They could not do that at the Wilderness Resort.
So, we are home for the next few days. Can’t wait to head to the parks but, first we sleep!
