AoA suite vs AKL...or split stay?

Hi folks! I have a dilemma. Right now, we (my parents, me and DD4) are booked for a 5 night stay in April at AoA in a Lion King suite. Since the AoA discount is so small and the deluxe discounts are so big, we could stay at AKL (standard view) for the exact same price. I was 100% set on AoA , but knowing that we could stay at a deluxe for the same price is driving me nuts!

Background: this is DD's first trip, and so we are making it all about her. She is a Lion King NUT. I mean she has every single plush available, cannot have a conversation without mentioning Simba, has been scolded for roaring at people in public, wants to be called Madelion instead of Madeline. I know that she is going to be in heaven with the theming at AoA. And my parents are looking forward to having their own room and bathroom in the suite.

Buuuuut, for the same money we could be at a deluxe, lol! I'm sure DD would really enjoy seeing the animals at AKL (though not as much as the LK theming), and if I'm reading the description correctly, we could get two queen beds and a day bed, so we could still sleep in different beds (she is a WILD sleeper, it's tough to get much sleep in the same bed w her).

WDYT? Would you switch? Do a split stay? If you would do a split, which one would you do 1st/2nd? My parents are paying for this trip but I'm the planner so I want everything to be great. We will most likely not be doing another Disney trip until DD is 10 or so. FWIW, we would probably not eat at any of the TS restaurants at AKL (no dining plan), and I don't think the nicer pool would make a huge difference to anyone.
