    Hi Keith!
        You have picked some incredible Moderate Walt Disney World Resorts to choose from for your family's vacation! I will warn you that I just have stayed at Port Orleans Resort French Quarter on my most recent tip to Walt Disney World in March 2010 and I absolutely loved it! It sounds like you are going to be basing your decision of where you are going to stay by the sleeping arrangements so I will concentrate my answer in this area. 

    Port Orleans Resort Riverside in the Alligator Bayou does offer trundle beds in their double bed rooms if you request it when when you make your reservation or at check in. This option would be better for your family if your kids do not enjoy sleeping in the same bed together. This Resort is incredible, but it is very spread out and it actually has four bus stops because of its size.

    Port Orleans Resort French Quarter has only double beds which can be small especially if you are a tall person (over 6 feet tall) or if your kids can not stand to sleep next to each other. That being said, French Quarter is a great Resort, where the buildings are very close together.  It also has an awesome pool and food court.

    Coronado Springs Resort has queen beds in the Cabanas section of this Resort or you can request a roll-away bed (for $15 extra a night and you are still limited to only 4 guests a night) for the rooms with double beds when you make your reservation or at check in. Having a queen sized bed would make it easier to have your children sleep in the same bed together. The only complaint that I have heard about this resort is that it is a Conference Center so you will see people walking around in business suits during the week.

    I hope that you and your family have a magical stay at whatever Walt Disney World Resort that you end up choosing!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
