Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- Hi Marcy, me AGAIN! DS9 DD3. Was planning All star movies, but I'm so nervous about the buses. Wondering if pop would be better. Which do you recommend for young kids? Also, sold on AKL CL for the last 5 days of 12 day trip. Is WL CL better for kids? Thank

- Welcome back, Laura! The big draw for my kids at All Star Movies is that so many of their favorite Disney characters are larger-than-life features of the resort! It's a really great resort for kids, and I would not hesitate to stay there again! That being said, it is the last stop on the All Star bus route, so there are times when after the bus has stopped at the other All Star resorts, it can be pretty packed pulling up to All Star Movies.
Pop Century has dedicated bus service that only serves this resort, so you won't ever have to wait long to hop on the bus and head to your favorite park for the day. This is a huge plus for families with kids! Also, it will be fun for you and Dad to explain some of the pop culture references to your kids while you're there. But Art of Animation is my favorite of the Value Resorts. Check it out too!
Now, as far as the Club Level rooms at Animal Kingdom Lodge and Wilderness Lodge, you honestly cannot go wrong with either. You will all love a Club Level room at Animal Kingdom Lodge that overlooks one of the savannahs. Where else, except maybe on an African safari, can you wake up and look outside to see giraffes so close and other animals wandering the savannah. It's a really unique experience. Not to mention that Animal Kingdom Lodge offers some fun activities for the whole family and learning opportunities with Cast Members who can answer questions about the amazing animals you'll see.
Over at Wilderness Lodge in the Club Level rooms, the theming is pretty amazing too, and you'll get some beautiful views, but you won't see zebras outside your window! My family thinks the geyser is amazing, and we love to watch it erupt throughout the day. However, my favorite part about Wilderness Lodge is it's boat service to Magic Kingdom. Transportation time is much faster to all of the resorts since it's closer, and that boat really adds some extra magic to my family's day.
Have fun planning, Laura!
