    Hello~ I'm looking for opinions....Family of 4 (DD 7&8) POFQ or CSR. (Better resort for ease of transportation, pool, rooms, etc.?) We loved POR Royal Room last year; not sure yet about trying a different moderate. Love this panel!! Thanks!

    Hi Lynne!

    Port Orleans Resort has been my family's base resort for the last 3 years.  Having stayed at the Riverside and the French Quarters, we find both very comfortable and relaxing.  Staying at the Port Orleans allows guests to visit 2 pools with waterslide.
    We have come to prefer the Alligator Bayou at Port Orleans Riverside Resort, because of its woods like feel and the pull down-bunk bed that features Louis the Alligator.

    Coronado Spring Resort features a totally different theme, but room's space and amenities are basically the same as in the Port Orleans Resort.  This resort also features La Vida Health Club and a great pool with waterslide.

    Bus transportation at both resorts is very efficient, but you must allot around 1 hour for each connection - depends on season, time of day and chance.
    Port Orleans Resort also offers boat transportation to and from Downtown Disney.

    Using your own or a rented car will help make the most of your vacation time, allowing more time to sleep and visit the parks.
    Taxis will also help you save precious time - these are ready to pick up guests at resorts, parks (except Magic Kingdom), Transportation & Ticket Center and Downtown Disney.

    Disney moderate resorts feature counter service restaurants that offer meals accordingly to the resort theme.

    The Cabins at Fort Wilderness Resort offer a totally different experience with more comforts and located in the campgrounds of Disney.  This resort features many outdoor activities and different dining experiences.

    Glad to help you plan a magical Disney vacation.
    Hope to hear again from you.
