Here’s my dilemma - I’ve booked a week in Oct with my family (wife, D7 and S4) for their first WDW trip. We missed a Moderate with free dining, which I had budgeted for, so I grabbed All Star Music and upgraded QS to standard dining since we’re planning Character meals. I can afford AKL (still available w/ free dining), but it puts me about $1500 over where I wanted to be. So the subjective question(s) for all you experienced travelers: Is it really worth it? And if yes, why in your opinion? Also, will AKL theming appeal to young kids, or is it too muted or “adult”?
Thoughts appreciated. And I apologize in advance for the potential absurdity of trying to compare apples to oranges… Thanks!
