5 adults and a 4 year old AoA or save $1000?

We are staying 11 nights and getting 10 day park tickets. I cant decide if we should get 1 room at AoA or 2 rooms at Movies, it is a lot cheaper to get the 2 rooms at Movies, but the family suites seem roomier IDK, what do you think?
We are arriving Thanksgiving Day. My sis is going, she wants to stay at AoA but she only has her, DH and 2 little ones, I think when she finds out how much more it will cost her, she may rethink it and find movies just fine.

If it was me, I would go with the two rooms. I am always looking to save money!

The AoA suite will be more usable space in the room. It's 565 square feet. It's bigger because A) it doesn't have the corner cut-out that the outside door caused, and 2) it was designed to provide both sleeping space and livingroom/kitchen space.

We stayed in a Cars suite last year and loved it. If you can afford the $1000, then go for it.

I feel like if you can stay organized with that may people to stay at Movies. Ultimately you'll only be sleeping there.

I'm confused on how many people are going...you said 5 adults and 1 child (4 year old)
And list
Sister (adult #1)
Sister's Dh (adult #2)
Sisters 2 little ones (2 children?)

Then from your signature it looks like you have:
Yourself (adult #3)
Your husband (adult #4)
Your son (child #3?)

Regardless, I would go with 2 rooms at Movies--which would give you 4 double beds, as opposed to 3 beds (one Queen in the bedroom, one double made out of a table, and one double from the sleeper sofa). It would just give more flexibility for adults that don't want to share a bed with someone else. Also, I'm just not a fan of "creating a bed" after a long day at the parks.

I don't know if you've tried the AoA suites or not, but the beds couldn't be easier. It took less than a minute to prepare the room for sleeping.

Don't make adults sleep on pull-out sofas! Get two rooms and four beds. Use the extra money for some nice meals!

In my room(s) will be me, DH, DS(he's 25) DD (she is 24), my mother and my DS (he is 4). My Sister has herself, DH and 2 DS ages 5 and 1, but they will have their own room.

Oh thanks everyone! I think we will go with 2 rooms and not the Family suite. If my sis really wants to stay at AoA we shall get mermaid room, but if not I think everyone would like movies, maybe POP, but I stayed at POP and loved it! But wanted to try another resort just for fun. If I can afford it we will stay at PoR!!

If privacy is not an issue then look at the Alligator bayou rooms at POR..while it’s a moderate resort it may still work out cheaper then a suite at AoA. The Refurb’d alligator Bayou rooms sleep 5. They have 2 queen beds and 1-pull down bed over the bench

That explains why POR when I had down my son was 2 (looking at various times of year) said our family small enough...
