    Back again! We have decided to stay at a moderate resort and use the money we are saving for things such as bippidi boppidi and other special events. Between POR and CBR, what do you recommend for two pool lovers, ages 3yrs and 15mo? We aren't park people.

    Hi John!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel.  In terms of just the pools, the Caribbean Beach Resort is definitely the place to stay.  Port Orleans Riverside has a nice pool, with a relatively long water slide, but it doesn't really compare to the amazing pool at the Caribbean Beach Resort.

    However, in terms of the over all resort experience, I would recommend going with Port Orleans Riverside.  That's mainly because I think the Caribbean Beach Resort is too big and spread out, especially if you don't have your own car.  Also, I love the theming of Port Orleans Riverside, especially the Alligator Bayou section of the resort.  I also love the boat service to Downtown Disney from Port Orleans Riverside.  It's is a fun trip, especially at night.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
