    We're thinking our first disney trip will be this fall. 4 kids (7,5,3,1) I think Art of Animation looks cool. Also, what's your thought on the quick service dining plan? Have you ever rented a stroller? Our double is big and not easy to drag around.

    Hi Elizabeth!  Your kids are at such great ages to take to Walt Disney World, you all are going to have a fantastic time.  

    Let me start by saying that Disney's Art of Animation IS cool!  The family suites are great for larger families like yours.  The rooms are themed beautifully to each movie they represent.  The main pool happens to be the largest resort pool on Walt Disney World property.  The pool has underwater speakers, if you dunk your head under you can hear Nemo and friends.  There is also an interactive water play area for your little children to enjoy too. 

    I am a big fan of the Disney Dining Plan.  My family usually chooses the standard plan that consists of 1 counter service, 1 table service and 1 snack per person per night stayed at a Walt Disney World resort.  That plan really works for my family because we love the table services restaurants at Walt Disney World.  Where we dine is a big part of our Disney vacations.  We love character meals and eating at 'Ohana for dinner and watching the fireworks from our table.  If you don't want to take time away from the parks to enjoy a sit down meal then I do think the Quick Service Dining Plan is a great option. 

    When we go to Walt Disney World we rent a stroller through Kingdom Strollers.  Kingdom Strollers delivers the stroller the day we check in and they pick it up from the resort the day we check out.  It is a very convenient service.  They offer a variety of different stroller options, you should check them out.  I find that the strollers break down really easy to load on and off of the buses. 

    Have a great vacation and if I can help you in any way, feel free to ask!
