Family of 5 on Dream- 2 connecting or 1 deluxe Family room

I'm so torn as to what to book!

This will be our first cruise with DCL. We have been on RCCL ships, only, up until now.
We are a family of 5, Children's ages at time of sailing: 17G, 8B, 5G. Plus my husband and myself.

On RCCL- we have always booked 2 connecting Balcony's and had the balcony divider opened up- to give us 1 huge balcony. We do like having a balcony- but we don't use it a huge amount. We've sailed in insides when we had just the 2 children- and it was fine.

I know that Disney rooms are a little larger, in general, than other cruiselines.

For about the same money we can have:

1) 2 connecting OV Deck 2 AFT ($100 more Deck 7)

2) Family Deluxe Balcony

OR for about $300 cheaper (total) we could have

1) 2 connecting insides with the magical porthole Deck 7 Mid

2) Family Deluxe OV Deck 7 Mid

Here's what we have really loved, in the past (on other ships) about 2 rooms:

2 Tv's

The ability for 1 child to be asleep and the other to be up (or now 4yr old can't stay up as late as her 7r old brother, even on vacation. She just, literally, cannot do it!)

2 bathrooms

I guess I need to decide if having a balcony is really important or not..

Any thoughts? Suggestions? Other ideas?

I really do enjoy the planning stage of our cruise vacations! But some decisions drive me crazy, like this one!
