Won contest

I won a contest through a local travel agency. Its 5 days/6 nights. The catch is must stay in a family suite. So we have to pick between All Star Music and Art of Animation. There has been a bit in the news recently about theft from housekeeping at AOA. So for all of you pros which one should we choose? We have never stayed at either.

We stayed in an ASMu family suite a few years ago. I was not impressed. Worn out furnishings and less than stellar housekeeping put it on my, "not even if I was getting it for free" list.

I'd try AoA.

Congratulations!

I would pick AoA. All-Star Music does nothing for me at all. I think it's the ugliest and most boring of all the WDW resorts. AoA is new, exciting, and has a cute theme.

Congratulations. I think I would pick Arts of Animation because it is brand new. But I have never stayed at either.

Have a great trip.

OK great thank you guys so much We have until September 1st to book and until 8/31/14 to go. Kids really want AOA but I thought I would feel out the group. Kids want to try to get Nemo because they really like the pool pictures Isn't that what we base things on?

Another vote for AoA. I agree that the All Stars need some "freshening up". (Sorry, All Star fans!)

Besides - AoA is new. Why pass up the chance to stay in a new resort?

Literally a bit. One incident. Just don't bring anything valuable; the suspect was arrested--and congratulations

AoA for sure. We did not have any issues with theft from our room. Just make sure you shut your door tight. I noticed they do not shut automatically. We stayed in Cars pool view. It was an awesome view. We liked that pool better because it wasn't as busy. The nemo pool was nice to. Congrats!
