Resort options with a separate bedroom?

Just returned from two fabulous weeks at disney. Stayed at POP for 5 days and then the Fort Wilderness cabins for the rest. I learned that my family of 4 does not fit comfortably in a regular hotel room. The cabins were perfect-- gave the kids their own bedroom. They would sleep in every day and we all had space. At the POP they woke up early every day and we were crawling on top of each other. Only thing is the lack of food at the Cabins. I am wondering if I have any other options? I understand the AofA suites are an option but I don't want to have to line up like cattle to get on a bus (which we had to at the Pop). I am assuming that the Animation is the same?

Any other resorts where the kids can have their own room. I don't need a room..... just a door in between us :-)

Just an FYI - The cabins have the murphy bed in the front room so you have all the extra kitchen area at your disposal - at the AoA family suites - you will have a choice of a sleeper sofa or the table bed if you give the kids the bedroom. But if you take the bedroom - they will have the front of the suite and the front door/kitchenette so you will not be able to get out of your bedroom if you want them to sleep late.

Buena Vista Suites is a great option if you don't mind going off property - it's about a mile from the "Welcome to Disney World" archway on the south east corner of the 'World'. Full breakfast included and they have shuttles and huge suites. Usually you can get it for a little higher cost than a value. We usually only stay there when we have an annual pass though, so we don't have to pay to park (we usually drive).

I think Disney's suite options are not the greatest. Maybe look at offsite if you want more space and see what you can get?...We are in this situation too. I am willing to pay, money isn't the issue, but I am not paying for rooms with pullouts in them. I like Universal's kid suites...I so wish they had an option like that at Disney!

Most of the disney deluxe resorts have 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom suites. You can rent them through disney or rent a vacation club members points and book through the vacation club. You will need to know someone with points or use a 3rd party such as David's to rent them. Renting points is almost always a less expensive option.
