    Family of 4. DD13 and DS17. Can't decide between POFQ or WL. I have to say that the $$ we would save by staying at POFQ are attractive. will there be much difference in room size? How about ppols or overall appeal of the two resorts? thanks!

    Hi Chris!

    The rooms at Port Orleans - French Quarter average about 30 square feet smaller than the standard rooms at Disney's Wilderness Lodge.

    Honestly, it really depends on how much time you'll be spending at your resort.  If you anticipate that you'll be spending a good amount of time enjoying the amenities.  If not, then I'd take that savings and spend it on some special experiences for your family.  

    I have to say that I do love Wilderness Lodge.  It's spectacular and has that 'away from it all' feel, right in the middle of the magic!  

    Have a magical vacation wherever you choose to rest your head!
