All Stars vs Wilderness Lodge under construction

We are going to Disney on fall break. The decision has come down to these options:

Wilderness Lodge with plus dining or All Star Sports with plus dining and a savings of $1200.

I know that there is construction at Wilderness Lodge. And I've stayed at the All Stars before and know what they are like. Our kids are 9 and 13. I was really hoping to avoid the double beds, but $1200 is a lot of money to save.

Is the stay at Wilderness Lodge worth the extra money even with construction? It would still be under $3600 with the dining plan.

Or there is also going with POR or POFQ at $2600 with no dining plan at all.

This is our first trip in 6 years and I'm having a hard time deciding what to do!
Thanks,
Jen

The pool construction at the Wilderness Lodge this fall is major. They have the whole inner courtyard area around the pool blocked off. The beach is also blocked off and the pool bar is closed. The construction makes it hard to get around, too, since you can no longer cut through the courtyard. There is a quiet pool and hot tub which will be open, but it is small. To be honest, I wouldn't spend the extra money on the WL this time.

I know $1200. is a lot of money but we don't get to go to WDW all that often either. For me WL would be worth it even with the construction. The transportation options and the theming are exceptional.
