    Hello, would love to hear which Moderate resort you feel would be best suited for family of 4 (2 adults 2 toddlers) and 2 grandparents (2 separate rooms). Thanks!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Steven! 

    I've been fortunate enough to experience all Walt Disney World® Resort has to offer in the Moderate Resort category, so I'm excited to share with you my advice in helping you select the perfect "castle" for your magical vacation. 

    You can never go wrong with a little charm, elegance, and southern hospitality! It's these features, along with incredible amenities, that make Disney's Port Orleans - Riverside my favorite moderate level Resort hotel. In addition, with Port Orleans - French Quarter a short stroll away along the Sassagoula River, it's like having the two resorts in one. With beautiful grounds, well-appointed rooms, and exclusive activities, you're in for a stately experience. Here are just a few of the unique activities available:

    • Fishing available at Ol' Man Island, sponsored by Takemefishing.org 
    • Horse-drawn carriage rides
    • Catch the likes of Yehaa Bob Jackson as he entertains guests with his fun songs and piano talent at River Roost Lounge
    • Surrey Bike Rentals and so much more!

    Lastly, given the current and ongoing construction happening at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, I would definitely book Port Orleans - Riverside as soon as you can. 

    I hope this helps with your planning, Steven! Please let me know if you should have any additional questions - Walt Disney World® Resort hotels is one of my favorite Disney-related topics. 

    Happy planning, Y'all!
