Are the family suits in POP full kitchen or just micro, sink and mini fridge? What about the value studios at AKV?

Our other option is that my husband would qualify for the Shades of Green in September and January (Veteran, but not Disabled or retired).

We are wanting to stay on site, if possible, because of the youngest two napping in the afternoon and using the afternoon to explore the pools vs in the park.

We are used to doing Cedar Point, we usually get there during passholder hour early (so like 9-10 am) and then leave around 2; then go back about 6-7 (after dinner) till park close...each day we are there for a full day...
Pop doesn't have family suites. Art of Animation and All Star Music do. The AK Villa Studios don't have stoves or in-room laundry - only 1-2 BR units. Have you considered a 1BR unit? Or, you could get 2 Value Resort regular rooms vs a Value Resort family suite.

Here is a layout of the All Star Music family suite: It's got a microwave, not stove. No in-room laundry. It does have 2 full baths. http://www.mousesavers.com/family-su...-music-resort/

Here is the layout of the Art of Animation family suites: http://www.mousesavers.com/best-valu...els/#valueplus

Here's a look at Fort Wilderness Cabins for 6. (Layout on page 2): http://yourfirstvisit.net/2009/10/26...erness-resort/

You can google "xxxxx resort room layout" to get diagrams to help you.

Shades of Green is a nice hotel, the rooms are gigantic. You need a Junior Suite to take six people. Cost $250. This would be higher than Disney choices available to you. At SOG, you could take their transportation or walk to Poly and get Disney buses and monorail from there. I like this resort, except not elaborate food choices. But your young family is probably not concerned with "dining."
