    Hi there! I've decided to take the plunge & am going to take a Solo Trip to Walt Disney World! I'm from Belfast N Ireland & have decided to stay on property but should it be Value or Moderate Resort? Id appreciate your opinion :-)


    When I spent a few days at Disney this past January, I opted to stay at All-Star Music to save the most money. My room was located in the Broadway section, sporting some festive theming from Mary Poppins. There were pros and cons to the hotel: on the plus side, the room's size was ample as a solo traveler and updated, theming wasn't as important without my children, and the cost allowed me to enjoy some meals outside of the food court. The down side was that the door to my room was located on the outside of the building, but you'd have the same issue with a Moderate hotel, and my building sat at the farthest point of the resort from the food court, not that the food court offered any meals worth remembering. 

    If it were me and I was traveling as far as you, I'd consider staying in a Preferred Room at Pop Century or a Standard Room at the French Quarter. A Preferred Room at PC would allow you to be within close proximity of the main building and its food court, which is better, in my opinion, than that of the All-Stars. The French Quarter is the smallest resort on property, and as such, a Standard Room puts you within a comfortable walk to the food court and bus stop no matter where you're staying. One facets of the French Quarter gives it a leg up in my book: its boat to Downtown Disney, allowing you to enjoy its shopping, nightlife, and abundance of eateries. But if you just want to stay at the resort, you can enjoy some jazz at Scat Cat's or walk over to Port Orleans: Riverside for more offerings.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
