    Hello Samantha!

    It is a pleasure to welcome you back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Disney’s Art of Animation Resort and Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge are some of my favorite Disney Resort hotels. I am happy to "hEAR" you are considering staying in the magic to enjoy exclusive benefits like complimentary transportation and Extra Magic Hours. Planning on enjoying summer temperatures? Consider visiting the second half of August.

    If all of you would like staying together in the same room then I recommend booking a villa that can comfortably accommodate your party of 7. I believe a two-bedroom villa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge – Kidani Village that sleeps up to 9 adults would be the perfect choice. I love how the villas offer a fully equipped kitchen with a refrigerator, microwave, toaster, and many more excellent amenities. For more economical choices, you can also book a two-bedroom villa at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa or at Disney’s Old Key West Resort.

    The family suites at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort only sleep up to 6, so a good option if you decide to stay here would be to book two Little Mermaid standard rooms, since each room can sleep up to 4 guests. Children absolutely love this Disney Resort hotel! The areas are gorgeous and they will feel right inside beloved Disney movies like The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Finding Nemo, and Cars. 

    I hope this helps you while planning, Samantha! Please stop by real soon!

    Best magical wishes,
    Thiana
