Doing a split stay - which resort first?

We are going to WDW for 8 nights in May. There will be four of us - me (DW 52), DH 53, grandson age 7 and DS 31. We have decided to do a split stay and stay at one of the All-Stars (either Movies or Sports - can't decide!) for 4 days and AKL for 4 days. We can't decide which resort to stay at first. DH and I have been to WDW by ourselves but have never taken a small child. We usually stay at the All Stars or POP because it is economical. Last time we were there (2007) we visited AKL and fell in love with it. We think our grandson will love it there both for the zero entry pool and for the animals.

We have decided to get 2 rooms at the All Star resort and one room at AKL (can only afford 1 standard room at AKL). We plan to get settled in around lunch time the day we arrive and probably head to a park. The last day, we will probably leave about 9 am so won't have much time for the resort, let alone go one last time to a park. As we usually do, we will probably take two days as "rest" days to hang around the resort or go to Downtown Disney.

Which resort should we stay at first? If we were getting only one room at All Stars, it would be a no-brainer - would stay there first. But I'm wondering if we will be more comfortable moving into 2 rooms at the All Stars during the latter 4 days of our stay.

Please help me decide!
