just changed my AOA reservations to WL and...

...feel like a bad mom

I KNOW they would have enjoyed LM AOA so much more but with a 5 night trip and focus on MK i just know that WL will be so much more convinient. I just feel bad cause I usually put my girls first

You are taking your children to WDW. I'm not sure how that puts you in the "bad mom" column! WL is an awesome resort and it will make it more convenient for everyone - including your girls!

I consulted my DS for you and he says that makes you a great Mom. Of course, he chose the Swan this year b/c it's close to DHS and Epcot, so that tells you something.

They would have enjoyed LM at first, like in the first hour, and then they would have moved on to other things. They will enjoy taking a boat to MK more than a bus. The WL is great and everyone will be glad to be there. Most children don't get to go to WDW at all.

And you can always buy them some LM toys so that you feel better.

You upgrade from a value to a deluxe resort and you think your a bad mom. No not in my book. Wilderness Lodge is a beautiful resort, all of my kids loved it there and want to go back.

Did the same thing two days ago to my daughter. We have already stayed at aoa LM and loved it. But if can stay at a deluxe for around same as a cars suite it's a no brainer. She will forget all about hotel after tWe get there

Oh man...
WL > AOA
Deluxe > Value
Boat > Bus

If your girls pitch a fit, that will be something that they look back on and laugh at. Everybody in their right mind picks the Hampton Inn over the Econo Lodge, right???

This drives me a bit crazy.. You're taking your kids on a great vacation and, I assume, footing the bill. Details are grown up decisions. When we cow tow to our kids every wish we end up with a nation of entitled kids.

I agree.

I grew up poor with a single mom. I grew up in Orange County, CA. I was thrilled if I got to ride a public bus to Disneyland once a year for a day trip. A kid should be excited about Disney wherever you stay!

Sometimes it is all about how you spin things to your kids. Have they ever seen the electric light Pageant? Can't see that at AOA. We LOVE the WL!

The WL has been my kids favorite resort (and mine) for years now. They fell in love with the WL when they were very young and the boat to MK is tons of fun! The ease of getting to/from the MK is amazing! Have a great trip!
