    We are going to Disney in 2017. We've only done value but want to do a moderate next time. We will be traveling with 4 adults and 3 kids, ages 8, 7, and 5. What moderate would you suggest?

    Hello Abby,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! One of my favorite moderate Walt Disney World Resort Hotels is Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. My family of six has stayed there on three different occasions because we loved it so much! 

    My kids love Ol’ Man Island pool at the Resort and in my opinion, Riverside Mill Food Court is one of the best Quick Service Dining Restaurants on property. If you get the chance you should rent a Surrey Bike and cruise around the Resort and enjoy the beautiful grounds along the Sassagoula River; we do this every time we visit, and it's a lot of fun! Disney Springs is just a quick ferryboat ride from the Resort so you'll have easy access to shopping, fabulous restaurants, and entertainment. 

    Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter is also a great Resort Hotel and just as charming as Riverside. It has a festive Mardi-Gras atmosphere and, one word...Beignets. Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory is the first place we stop when we stay there; we grab a Beignet and a Cappuccino and take a relaxing stroll around the Resort! 

    I hope these suggestions help in planning your visit. Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
