Either:
6 nights Pink Shell resort (Fort Myers)
Pros: walking distance of chain restaurants for DS1, on beach, huge pool.
Cons: maybe not as scenic as Anna Maria, not sure what else is within an hour’s drive.

Rental condo on Anna Maria Island:
Pros: scenic, easy to walk around, less commercialised, lovely beaches, nearby shopping.
Cons: might be too “niche” to find DS food. He likes Five Guys, Bahama Breeze, Perkins and Millers, smaller pools in rentals.
What would you do? Are there any aspects i overlooked that make one more suitable than another?
So very difficult as they are 2 very different resorts. I’ve not been to Fort Myers but I researched it to death when we were booked to go to Cape Coral. Cancelled it in the end as we found and fell in love with AMI.
In my opinion AMI would win hands down, purely for the fact it is far more relaxing, no chain restaurants and has such a chilled vibe I never want to leave.
I promise you you’ll find plenty of restaurants that will cater for your DS, have a look online as they’ll all have their menus on there.
It really is down to what you think will suit your family best. If you want a break from the madness of Orlando then I don’t think you can go wrong with AMI.
Have a wonderful time whatever you decide.
Oh and my 2 are like fish in water and never found the pool size to be an issue
