Family of 5 + inf - ASMu Suite or POR AB
We have done 4 trips to Disney and stayed at CSR, CBR, and POFQ (twice). Our next trip to Disney will be with our new baby and put us at family of 5 + inf category. Looking at the different resort choices we have narrowed it down to POR AB and ASMusic Family Suite. FW Cabins, AoA, deluxe, or renting points are not worth the extra $$ for our family.
We have done 4 + inf in CBR and POFQ and been fine on space. It is tight, but we are organized and it has been fine.
Kids will be 9, 6, 4 & 10 months on our next trip. We do rope drop every morning and come back to resort for afternoon break. We are back in the room by 8:30/9p every night. In the last 4 trips we have found that the trip time from our room to the park gate is an important part of the trip. At CBR the resort size + 7? bus stops seem to make this a VERY long time.
So here is what I have going as for as our pro/con list for the two resorts. Any input especially from families that have done it with similar family size?
All Star Music Family Suite
2 bathrooms (not a huge deal at this point since kids are small)
Private sleeping for me & DH / quite nap place for baby
Dining (free dining - QS) - we haven't done QS before..but i think QS + a few out-of-pocket TS meals would better fit our family
Likely closer to food court & pool
Port Orleans - Riverside - Alligator Bayou
Main pool has a slide. Slide was HUGE part of the trip for the kids last year.
Better food court
Can only do the option (1 room) for another trip or so before we're family of 6
Approx $700-750 cheaper
Covered bus stops with seating - more relaxing with 4 small kids + strollers
Boat ride to DTD
