    My husband and I and our 17 year son are planning a trip to one of the Disney Resorts in January. Can you suggest a moderate resort that may have more of an interest for a 17 year old?


    Although I want to recommend Coronado Springs, with its upscale rooms that remind me of interiors you'd find at a resort in the Southwest United States and a fabulous food court that has lots of tasty options for a hungry teenage boy, I have say that Port Orleans is still my pick.  Because you may not be able to maximize your time at the pools in January, the boat to Downtown Disney from Port Orleans was the deciding factor.

    Our kids see the boat to Downtown Disney as another ride! Plus, Downtown Disney is open later than the theme parks, so if your family wants a night out to shop, eat, ride the balloon, or just enjoy the impromptu musicians, the 15-minute boat ride provides an added entertainment no other moderate resort can boast.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
