    My friend & I are taking our children to WDW in May, my son's 2nd time (age3) and first time for her and her kids (1 & 3). Which resort of PO-Riverside, PO-French Quarter, Caribbean Beach or Coronado Springs is more age appropriate for them? Thanks

    Hi ya, Regina! I'd go with Port Orleans French Quarter. It's significantly smaller than the other resorts you're considering, which is an über benefit when you have so many little ones (and dads with short attention spans, like me. Squirrel!)

    The quaint size of Port Orleans French Quarter makes it easier to get your arms around where everything is - such as the central pool and food court and single pick up / drop off location for the busses to the parks. Since you don't need to rely on transportation to get you around the resort, it makes everything more predictable and manageable with little kids' schedules. Plus, it also helps them get oriented to their surroundings more quickly, which is helpful when returning and recuperating from a busy day at the parks.

    I also think Port Orleans Riverside and Coronado Springs would work well. I just favor French Quarter more.
