I would like recommendation for on-site room options at WDW. We need 3 sleeping areas and have young kids.
Here is what I found so far:
I am leaning towards the AKL option… We’ll probably return to WDW in a couple of years, when A of A could become cheaper.

To answer your question, I really enjoy the Mara, which is the "food court" at AKL. Their options are definitely a little higher level, but have the same kids type of menu you would find other places. The room may be smaller, and as for transportation, remember that AKL is kinda out there. So your trip times to the other parks, especially MK, are going to be a little lengthy. But to stay at THAT resort.... SO WORTH IT. (can you tell how much i love AKL yet??)
Out of curiosity,did you happen to check availability for the Ft. Wilderness Cabins? You can sometimes get great rates on those, and they are fantastic. Double bed, bunk bed, AND murphy bed. also a full kitchen! It would definitely be the most spacious option. they don't have a "food court", but do have Trail's End, which is pretty delicious. Transportation is great from there too, as you can take a ferry to MK, and then bus to everywhere else.
Good luck, let us know what you book!
From Brian EmeryFirst have a great vacation and thanks for vacationing in the USA….

Now I always stay at a Sheraton Retort on the RT- 535 in Buena Vista. If you have a rental car your choices are endless. The resorts or Villas have two to three bedrooms..
I am staying at a Sheraton for a week in April for $1,300 – Two bedrooms with three beds and a pull out coach\Bed.. Plus two full bathrooms…
From Anthony MurphyI would take a look at Old Key West Resort. It is near Downtown Disney and the two bedroom has three beds and a pull out bed in the family room.
