Why is AOA so much more expensive than ASMu?

I priced both Family Suites on the Spring Offer, and AOA came out $432.58 higher than ASMu? Same dates, tickets, and dining. I thought that they were both value? Now we just charge more for a newer resort?

Yep.

AoA also has covered bus stops, which they don't have at the All Stars. And I think the pool area is nicer, but still no slide. I do know that AoA is heavily themed with Disney characters, which ASMu is not.

Because they are new, they are more heavily themed, they are more centrally located, and people will pay extra for that.

I was wondering the same thing. The Lion King rooms are crazy priced for being a VR!

Funny, I have always wondered why the Wilderness Lodge is considered a moderate instead of a deluxe (price wise).....

The rooms are smaller and they sleep fewer people

actually they have categorized them as a Value Plus. I'd have to look for where it is on the site and I'm on my phone, so it's too hard to do this way. But they actually consider it a step above ALL the other values including POP.

Plus its in high demand, so the discount wont be as much. It isnt blanket pricing, you can even find different rates at the all-stars depending on availability.

They don't change the rates depending on availability. They may sell out of one room category or another, but they don't start our charging a set amount for a room type and then change that amount as that type of room sells out.
