    Which is the best moderate resort for children ages 9 and 11?


    While I think they are all great, I have a preference for the best place to stay. With kids that age, ones that are well past taking a nap in the afternoon, I always recommend Port Orleans Riverside (with Port Orleans French Quarter a close second).

    Why? Easy;

    • Riverside hasĀ great grounds for exploration, and even offer bike rentals
    • There is a catch and release fishing area
    • They can go on a carriage ride
    • The marina offers watercraft rentals
    But the biggest reason is this: The boat transportation to Downtown Disney!

    I think it isĀ great that they can escape to a world of G-rated entertainment, shopping, and maybe the occasional ice cream sundae treat as well (at Ghiradelli)! All they need to do is jump onto one of the launches and they are there in pretty short order. If you have more than one adult on the trip, one can take the kids there for an afternoon of fun, while the other takes in a nap, some alone pool time, or just relaxes. So it is good for you too!

    Have a Magical Vacation!
