    Where should we stay?? help!!!

    K, im finally going back to WDW!!!! group of 5, 4 adults 1 child.......where should we stay.....is it worth paying extra to stay somewhere outside of the all stars music family suite?? I love the boardwalk villas, but it cost $4,000 more!!! so is it worth it? or are there other good places i dont know about?? any help would be greatly appreciated.
    I'm the only one!!!!

    i like the all stars just fine.. for me its not important how super nice the room is because i have my daughter with me so i'm not looking for romantic mood.. we plan on spend alot of time in the park so i could care less what kind of view i have from my room...LOL but if i was going for romance or something i would shoot for a nicer resort

    I'm a fan of Pop Century, I know it's not a crowd pleaser with some but it is a fun resort, plenty to see. On the Moderate side I'll always recommend Port orleans Riverside, very nicer resort, great themeing and nice boat to DTD. Still plenty for a kid to do and very nice for adults

    I like Pop and POR also. Plus, if you tell them you have 5 at POR they have some rooms that come with trundle beds. Also, I know they were running some specials on the DVC resorts... around $165 a night. That'd be worth checking on, too. They even come with a mini (studio) or full kitchen.

    I have to agree, Pop and POR are both good choices. If I had to pick one I would go for POR. The atmosphere is wonderful and the theming is perfect. And like mentioned above, you can request a trundle in your room and all 5 of you would be able to stay in the same room. I don't know if this would crowd you at all, my family of 2 teens and 2 adults fits comfortably though. We LOVE the resort, I would look into it if I were you.

    When we went to WDW in '01 & '04 we stayed at POR in one of the rooms with a trundle bed b/c we have 3 kiddo's. We really wanted to stay there again this past July but we had 6 ( our older DD's BF came with us to help celebrate DD's " Sweet Sixteen " ) and did not want to pay for 2 rooms. We opted for a family suite at All Star Music and were very impressed!!! It had a kitchenette, one private bedroom, 2 full baths & 2 T.V.'s!!! We still want to go back to POR for all of the reasons stated in the previous posts above but ASM worked out really well! Plus it was under $125.00 a night!!!
