    Hi! We are a family of 4 (2 & 5 yr olds). 2nd trip, first was at Shades. Having trouble deciding between CBR and Coronado...worried about distance from things at CBR with 2 small kids. What do you think? are Port Orleans Resorts? Thanks!

    Hi Jennifer,

    Thanks for your question!  I've made it no secret that Coronado Springs Resort is by far my favorite Moderate Resort.  The rooms are all newly renovated and boast beautiful furnishings and queen sized beds. 

    I will say though, if the swimming pool is a major factor for your family, the newly refurbished feature pool at Caribbean Beach Resort makes this a great option for families with small children.  They have a special "pirate ship" water play area for little ones that is incredible.  These rooms are also recently refurbished, however they do not have queen sized beds.  If you are concerned about distance I would suggest booking a preferred room to guarantee yourself  a building close to the main areas of the resort.

    During our stay at Port Orleans Riverside I was very impressed by the cleanliness of our room, however I only stayed here one night so I don't think I can fairly assess all of the resorts amenities. 

    I suggest that you visit and check out their detailed photographs of every resort, it's extremely helpful when trying to make a decision.
