Recommendation for family with teen and friend

Which hotel would you recommend for the following set-up: mom, dad, 14 year old boy and his friend? Ideally two separate rooms and three separate beds. Art of Animation looks cool but only seems to be suitable for families with younger kids, is that correct? My little boy is taller than me so we need regular beds. Thank you for your help!

In December my husband, myself, my daughter and her friend stayed at AOA in the Lion King rooms. They were 16 and they loved the resort.

The bedroom has a queen. The murphy bed and pull out are both full sized.

They are great rooms for teens because the boys will have their own bathroom and you will have added privacy.

My 18 year old had no trouble getting comfortable on either of the beds at AOA. He is about 6' tall.

But I would think they would prefer the proximity of one of the EPCOt resorts.

We had a wonderful time, but did have our moments!

Pretty much down to my hips on one side, but nice and perky on the other

If you can give in on having 2 separate rooms, many of the Deluxes (with the exception of the Wilderness Lodge and Animal Kingdom Lodge) have a daybed. My son, who is 3 inches taller than I am and probably 30 pounds heavier, is very comfortable on it.

If you're thinking along these lines, take a look at Storm Along Bay, at the Beach/Yacht Clubs.

(Added bonus: you can walk to both Epcot and DHS.) You'll all have the times of your lives!!!

The Garden Wing rooms at the Contemporary are probably the least expensive Deluxe rooms on Disney property, and you can walk to the Magic Kingdom if you don't want to take the monorail.

If you are open to a deluxe resort, I'd go with the Contemporary as it is within walking distance to MK. For a value, I would definitely do POP Century...cool theming for teens and it is possible to get connecting rooms (we've done it). I love POP it is my favorite value resort. We've never done suites just went with connecting rooms. You can also "tour" AOA if you're interested. Hope this helped!
