    I have a friend who is trying to decide where to stay for her very first trip in May. (So that means that I get to live vicariously thru her and help her plan....woo hoo!)

    Her group consists of 3 adults and 3 kids (6, 7, 13).
    If they book AoA, it would be 2 standard rooms (or one suite?)
    And if they go FW, it would be one cabin.

    Would love any feedback considering their particular group size/ages and the resorts in question. (I've never stayed at either one).

    I just did a split stay at both. It was DH and I, my parents and our 3.5 year old. The cabins at Fort Wilderness only have 1 bathroom and that was a huge downside.

    How would They work the bed situation? A family suite at AoA has 3 beds (regular bed, sofa bed, and Murphy bed). Fort wilderness cabins technically have 4 (Murphy bed, regular bed and a set of bunks). Or staying in the little mermaid section of AoA they could get 2 regular rooms with 4 beds.

    AoA would be my hearty recommendation. Two bathrooms in the suite is priceless. The cabins have one bathroom, with only one sink.

    Definitely AoA! I'm not really a huge fan of the cabins at FW :P

    Two sinks if you count the kitchen sink.

    Yes, there are two sinks, but our family sanity does NOT include my husband shaving in my kitchen sink!:rotfl2:

    In addition, having two potties for six people is superlative.
