Honestly, I think it depends. I did the poll and said UPGRADE, as that was my initial reaction, but the more I've thought about it, I don't know! We've stayed at all levels and there are great things about each. This year we're going to be staying at AoA only because my son is 4 and is obsessed with Cars. I was going back and forth, and I realize that a Cars suite may not be a 'value' and I'm giving up a few things, but for my family right now, AoA is what I feel is the best fit for us. So before I can answer, I need to know more about your family! Are you staying at ASMo because your son loves Buzz Lightyear? No, don't upgrade. Are the kids a little older and would like a nicer pool and maybe a TS restaurant, then yes!

I say Upgrade to Moderate - you won't be disappointed - now tell me whats the deal?

I've stayed at Moderates - CS twice and POR twice. I'm driving my Daughter down next weekend (she just got into the Disney College Program) I'm at POP for a cheap stay because we want to come back for a Family Vacation to see here later and can't really afford this trip right now so cutting costs.

I already get a nice Discount for Military (30% Value, 35% Moderate, 40% Deluxe) but paying for the QS Dining for 3 days full price.

I'd upgrade right now to get free dining but might not be able too if I'm already discounting the room.

Did you get an email?

It wouldn't even be a question for us. We would upgrade to a Moderate immediately. $100 is nothing compared the added amenities you get at a moderate. Just the floor space in the room alone is worth it.

I kind of have the same question, but what if you're currently booked at AoA LK Suite and they release FD fort stay? I am currently getting the Deluxe Dining plan, so by staying at the AoA suites, I get Qs for
free and can upgrade to deluxe, or do I move to a smaller moderate room, for free regular dining plan and pay a smaller difference to upgrade to the DDP??? Thoughts?

Moderate! Better beds, more space, better dining options, slides on pools (even this adult hops in one!), towels at the main pools. For $100 extra for the WHOLE trip? Yup!

Exactly my thoughts! definitely a moderate!

It depends on how many will be in the room and the ages of kids if any. Having a separate bedroom would be nice if you are ones to stay in the room for any length of time. I
