    Going to WDW 4/26 & staying at AS Movies. We have a 6 yr g & 22 mnth twins b/g. This will be our 3rd trip w/6 yr old but 1st trip with twins.1st trip to AS Movies. We have reserved 2 pack & plays & am now worried about space. Any ideas? T

    I understand your situation. I too have an older child followed by twins. I'm not going to sugar coat this; you are in a bit of a tough situation. The rooms at the All Star Movies are only 260 square feet. They're livable, but without much wiggle room. There is little storage area for suitcases, so those will likely be spread out a bit, infringing on your living space. Plus, you'll have lots of gear for the twins AND a stroller or two that you'll need to keep in the room. Things will be very tight. My understanding is that fire code actually limits the number of cribs (Pack 'n Plays) in the rooms at the All Stars to one. So I'm a bit surprised that the hotel has even agreed to bring two cribs into the room. If you're asking me could you actually stay in an All Star room with five people and two cribs, I'd say, "Maybe just barely." If you're asking me, "Will we be comfortable?" I'd have to say, "No."

    For more information on the rooms at the resort, you can go to allearsnet.com. Click on the search button and search for "All Star Movies Fact Sheet." There is also a detailed description of the resort rooms in the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World.

    If you need alternatives, you might want to investigate the Family Suites at the All Star Music resort (call Disney reservations at 407-W-DISNEY for more information and pricing). These rooms are meant to hold up to six people, whereas the regular All Star rooms are really only meant to hold up to four. Another benefit of the Family Suites is that they come with a small kitchenette with a refrigerator, microwave, and toaster. If you upgraded to the Family Suite, perhaps you could offset a bit of the cost by eating breakfast in your room instead of out at a restaurant. Another alternative would be to get two adjoining rooms at the All Star Movies, or to switch to one of the moderate resorts (Port Orleans is my favorite) that have a bit more space. Good luck. I assure it DOES get easier. Really.
