    Which moderate resort would be best for an older adult with mobility issues coupled with a 7 year old who loves to swim?

    I think that Coronado Springs Resort is the absolute best moderate resort! This is definitely great for any family, especially one that loves to swim. Coronado Springs Resort has two swimming pools. The main pool has a Mayan pyramid and a huge hottub that can hold 22 people! There is also a splash area for children. There is also a quiet pool near the La Vida Health Club that is great for those looking for a calmer experience. Your seven year old can swim while you relax at the chairs and lounges nearby. If you have mobility issues, I strongly recommend renting an ECV while you are there, no matter which resort you stay in. All of the resorts and parks require a great deal of walking. When I visited with my mom, who also has mobility issues, she rented an ECV and it was the best money we ever spent! I recommend staying in either section 9500-9657, which is close to the central transportation and food court or section 4100, which is close to the quiet pool and one of the bus stops at the resort.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
