    Hi, we are going to Disney World with my son (10) and daughter (14). If choosing between PO Riverside, PO French Quarter, or Caribbean Beach Resort, which would you recommend?

    Hi Cathy! That's a great question, because whichever you choose, you won't be disappointed. Given the ages of your children, I would go for Port Orleans Riverside as my first choice. When my daughter was younger, we loved French Quarter, but now that she's older, she loves the main pool area of Riverside. It's a much bigger resort and there is so much to do. A perk with staying at either resort is that as a guest of Port Orleans, you can use the amenities at both French Quarter and Riverside resorts, so you can go next door and check out their pool area. One of my favourite things is the boat ride from the resort to Downtown Disney. It's the perfect way to end a busy day in the parks. 

    Hope this helps with your decision Cathy! Write back with any other questions!
