    Default A of A suite or yacht club 2 rooms

    I need help taking my 4 grandsons 5,7,7,11 this summer. Can do two regular rooms at the Yacht club or at a suite A of A with return to the magic discount or two rooms at Port Orleans either French or Riverside. Is it worth the difference in price? We do spend the afternoons at the pool. With the buss drive times and not having slide should I spend the money for yacht club? Or Port Orleans? Have never stayed at the Port Orleans Resort.
    Thank you for any help,

    Thinking about the ages of your grandsons, I might suggest AofA for this trip. They might enjoy the Pixar/Disney Animation themes more than the other resorts you mention.

    Our kids LOVED Beach Club when they were 5 and 7. I would say Yacht Club for sure over AoA . It's not even a close comparison. The pool at YC is fantastic! Plus it is great being so close to both Epcot and Studios. We have stayed at AoA and even though my boys were huge Cars fans, we were all kind of "eh" about the resort as a whole. It is overpriced for what it is.

    Interesting, we did a split stay at both last year.

    The Yacht club experience will be much better because of the amazing pool.
    Plus the resort is alot better and walking distance to Epcot.

    AoA isn't bad at all either, the 3 pools are very cool to experience and well themed, BUT the beach/yacht club pool is just awesome.

    If you do use the pool, then pick Yacht Club

    We really liked the suites at the AoA. Our home resort is Riverside but you can't go wrong with the bigger room and the theming for those ages.

    We stayed at Yacht Club with my 2 small children- they were 3 and 5, and we all absolutely loved it. AoA is fun, but to me there is no comparison between the 2. The Yacht Club/ Beach Club area and the Boardwalk are just amazing. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. AoA is just too cutesy and loud for me. My kids both loved the decor of the yacht club and the pool is just amazing.

    I know it's not on your list, but I would suggest a cabin Fort Wilderness. It's one of the best places on property that we have stayed at and we usually stay at a deluxe.
