    hi, i am confused regd the choice of deluxe or moderate hotel(redg location and transportation) family of 4(girl! 10 and boy7)first time to WDW, would be coming in midmay for about 5days(is it suffi or shld i make it to 7)would like to visit the whole WDW.


    There are a number of advantages to a Deluxe resort over a Moderate. But moderates are very nice as well, and save you a significant amount of money too. Here are a few differences between the two classes;

    Price - Obviously the Deluxe cost more, though you do get more for the extra cost.
    Transportation - Most all of the Deluxe resorts have transportation to at least one theme park via a monorail or boat. The one exception is the Animal Kingdom Lodge, which like all the Moderate resorts relies on buses to all parks.
    Dining - Deluxe resorts have several dining options, while moderates typically have a food court and one table service restaurant.
    Room Size - Deluxe rooms are typically a bit larger, though the difference it not that significant.
    Amenities - There are lots of intangibles about Deluxe resorts that make them more appealing, if you can afford them, than moderates. Club level rooms, Child Activity centers, extensive theming, in-resort activities, etc.

    I love the deluxe, but if this is your first visit, and staying in a moderate can save you enough money to extend your stay from 5 days to 7, then I would do that.

    Have a magical vacation!
