I agree with you! I think I made the right decision going with the family suite...I just needed to second guess myself (for the millionth time, lol). With a family suite we are all together but everyone has their own sleeping space and we have 2 bathrooms so we can all get ready. Now I just need to stop thinking about it and start focusing on what we are doing. I'm sure I have a ton of ADRs I could/should be obsessing over

The only way I would do two rooms is if you stayed with your mom and YH stayed with his mom. I wouldn't want to stick my mom in a room with my MIL especially since it seems she doesn't know her very well. I agree that the moderate theme sounds like it would be better for you than AoA but I can't see how the room sharing thing would work out. That would concern me,

I think you made the right choice too. The theme may not be ideal but they have nice grounds to explore at AoA and you will have plenty of time in the parks and at ADRs. Enjoy!!

That sounds like a good choice - you will have space and that is great! If it goes well may be you can rent DVC points for another trip - LOL - - anyway - hope you all have a really great time. You can book some really nice adult dinners and visit all the resorts you want to visit for meals and AKL for animal viewing. I went with my mom (70 something) - we had dinner at Sanaa with a window view and watched the animals all during dinner - the reservation was at 6pm which coincided with the animal's dinner time so it was a real treat!

I think you'll be fine with a family suite at AoA!! That way, the moms can get to know each other a little better, with both of you around. And yes, some may find the theming a bit 'young' but I'm really looking forward to my stay there in early Dec..and I'm 63!!!! Can't wait.
Have a ball...and try not to worry too much about everyone being happy 100% of the time. Being the planner is a hard job. So, just plan some stuff and let other stuff just 'happen'!!!

DH and I would never share a room with our mothers. Nor would we expect them to share. Go for any plan that allows more space and some privacy.
