- Darlene, that is a great question and I hope I can help you out in your quest for your vacation resort.
Of all five value resorts, I absolutely love Disney's Art of Animation Resort the best. This resort is brand new and since you are traveling with extended family, this might be just perfect for you. They offer family suites that can sleep up to six people. Now, while this isn't quite big enough for your entire party, the standard rooms in the value resorts can only sleep four. So, you might have to configure your sleeping arrangements a little differently, possibly sending the oldest to sleep with grandparents. However, you could do a family suite and then a standard room at Art of Animation. The standard rooms are in the Little Mermaid section, while the family suites are in the Lion King, Cars, and Finding Nemo sections. The Big Blue Pool is phenominal and is the largest pool on property. It features a zero entry area, splash pad and get this...you can hear the music under the water! Over at the Cars section, the Cozy Cone Pool, there are cabanas shaped like construction cones. You will surely be awe-struck at all the details at this resort.
If that isn't quite in your budget and you want to go with 2 standard rooms, my next recommendation is Disney's Pop Century. The oversized theming based on five decades (50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s) is lots of fun. I just love taking pictures with the larger than life Mr. Potato Head and foosball table.
They all have food courts that are very similar, so I wouldn't be so bold to say that one is better than the other, in that regard. Also, at all five resorts, the bus stops are all located near the main building.
I hope you are able to choose the perfect resort for your family.
