That explains why POR when I had down my son was 2 (looking at various times of year) said our family small enough...

I would save the $1000. That's a lot of money! You could save that and put it towards another disney vacation, lol. If it was a couple hundred, I'd say go for the AoA, but that $1000 could go towards meals, souvenirs or my 1st suggestion.

I agree with the other posters, $1000 is a lot of money, you could definitely spend that elsewhere on the vacation!

We've been struggling with this same issue...in the past we've stayed at Pop, Movies, Sports, and POR, but now we are a family of 6 and 3 of the kids aren't so little anymore, teens and preeteens. I was really excited to see AoA, finally Value suites for larger families at Disney and the theming looks amazing. BUT...it is about $4000 room only for our dates so I went back to looking at 2 rooms at one of the other value resorts. That was still around $3000. Just yesterday I decided to book a 3 bedroom condo offsite for around $1000. Room for everyone to spread out and a full kitchen, washer, etc. I just couldn't justify the money for the onsite stay. Believe me, wish I could!

Good luck, I'm sure you'll have an amazing trip whatever you decide!
