    Hi, I'm back. Would you recommend a resort or a villa - we do need to stay at the Moderate Resorts. Could stay with two adults and two children in a villa and other other family in one unit. What do you think of the Dining Plan. Any packages you recom?


    If you are looking for a room in the moderate category, I can highly recommend  Port Orleans French Quarter. My advice would be to book two rooms at this resort, and ask that you be located in adjoining rooms, or as close together as possible.

    French Quarter is the smallest of the moderates, which means that everything is within a quick walk (a huge perk at the end of a long park day!!). Another asset of this resort is its incredible New Orleans theme that just envelopes you in the feel of the "old South".

    Perks of this resort (besides being beautiful) include boat transportation to Downtown Disney, use of the pool and amenities at Riverside (included since French Quarter and Riverside are sister resorts), and a great quick service restaurant featuring Beignets for breakfast! YUM!!

    You and your family will have a ton of fun exploring the grounds of both French Quarter and Riverside and checking out the pools and slides at both resorts. Don't forget to hop a boat to Downtown Disney for a nice way to send a few quiet moments traveling down the lazy river!

    If you are in need of park tickets with your vacation, the easiest way to do so will be to book the Magic Your Way package with tickets of your choice. When you do so, you'll be ready to go at the parks as soon as you check-in to your resort! Super easy!

    Hope this helps!
