    Is there a huge difference in we're u stay since u spend more time outside than inside I'm getting caught up in trying to budget for a better place to stay are the value resorts nice

    Hi, Chris!

    I am a huge fan of the Value and Moderate Resorts.  I find they are very comfortable, the food courts are fantastic, and my kids have a blast!  

    The biggest difference you will find by upgrading to a Deluxe Resort is that you will have more upscale dining options, the linens are a bit nicer, full room service options, and you will have "glass" drinking glasses in your room.  Also, the Deluxe Resorts are usually within closer proximity to a theme park.

    My family spends so much time at the theme parks that we usually opt for a Moderate Resort. We like the queen beds and nice themes in the Moderates.

    However, we are also very fond of Pop Century, a Value Resort.  We really like the Standard Rooms in the 50's section where we can get a room close to the Bowling Pin Pool (so fun!) 

    Value Resorts do not have table service restaurants nor do they have pool slides.  The rooms are on the small side with double beds, but comfortable enough for a family of 4, especially if you are planning to be "on the go" for much of your vacation. 

    I really do not think you will be disappointed in a Value or Moderate Resort.  If you are deciding from a few resorts, let me know!  I have stayed at most of the resorts, so I can give you the benefits of each.  Good luck deciding!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
