    What is the major difference between moderate resort and value resort aside from the price?

    Hi, John!   It can be a tough decision when picking your Disney Resort.   When deciding between Moderate and Value, here are your differences:

    -SIZE:  Moderate Room: 314 square feet   Value Room:  260 square feet
    -RESTAURANTS:  Moderates:  Food Court plus Sit Down Restaurant (French Quarter must walk down to Riverside as these resorts share one sit down restaurant.)  Value:  Food Court only.
    -POOLS:  Moderates have pool slide and better themes, Values have more basic pool areas.  Pool towels available pool side at Moderate, must bring towels from your room at Values. 
    -BATHROOM SINKS:   2 in a Moderate Room (exception: 1 sink in rooms at Coronado Springs.)  1 sink in bathrooms in Value Rooms. 
    -PROPERTY:   The grounds are better landscaped and nicer atmosphere at a Moderate vs. a Value.

    Overall, if your room is a place to sleep, shower, and run off to the magic, a Value Resort is sufficient.  If you have older kids and want a bit more room or plan to spend a lot of time at your resort, the upgrade to a Moderate is nice. 

    Good luck deciding and I hope you find the perfect resort for your vacation!
