    Which moderate resort would a 5yr old enjoy the most? I heard the CBR will have a new pool in 2009, however i also heard that the resort is too ginormous for little ones.Family of 2 adults and one child looking for great pool and fun,colorful themeing.

    Hi Natalia,

    Tough question to answer!  The theming and pools of all the moderate resorts are all done so well I think one's personal tastes sometime determine which resort would best be enjoyed.  However, the size of nearly all of the moderates can be overwhelming.  For this reason, I think I'd like to suggest Port Orleans French Quarter.  It has around 1,000 rooms which is about half the size of the other moderate resorts.  The Doubloon Lagoon pool area is wonderful with its serpent slide for kids to enjoy.  Another treat of this resort is that guests can enjoy all the offerings of its sister resort, Port Orleans Riverside.  it also has lovely boat ride to Downtown Disney.  

    I did provide a link to the resort for you above.  If you'd like to explore more of the resort, you may want to consider visiting since it has nearly 70 addiitional photos of the resort.
