    We have 3 boys, 4 years old & under. Between Coronado Springs & PO Riverside, which would you recommend for us considering amenities, dining and transport for our young family of five? Cost is a wash & we've stayed at/love both! Thanks!

    Hi there Emily!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  I have stayed at both Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside many times in the past and have thoroughly enjoyed each visit.  However, as a mom of three boys myself, I would have to choose Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside based on the ages of your kids. Although I loved the theming, I found it be quite challenging walking from our room location at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort to the main areas due to the size of the property.  

    If staying at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, you will be able to enjoy the amenities and dining locations at your resort as well as those at its sister property, Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter. Another perk of staying at this popular resort location is being able to easily travel to Disney Springs via the ferryboat. I also prefer the relaxing atmosphere, Southern charm and recreational activities that are offered at Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. At this resort location, you will have the option of choosing a guest room that features a pull-down Murphy bed in order to accommodate a 5th Guest. 

    I hope this helps in making the best decision for your family. Please don't hesitate to visit us again with any additional questions that you may have. Best wishes for a magical trip, Emily!

    Happy Planning,
