    Is there any moderate or value resort the compares to POR. POR atmosphere is great so private and quiet.

    I'm with you; Port Orleans Riverside is my all-time favorite moderate.  It's tough to compare the resorts because they each offer a unique charm.  That said, I'll do my best to offer some observations.

    In my opinion, part of what makes Port Orleans Riverside so lovely is the beautiful landscaping.  Those wooded surroundings lend to a very private, secluded feel--even though there are thousands of rooms in the resort!  During our stay there two years ago we rarely ran into other guests and we NEVER were bothered by noise from people coming and going.

    We've also stayed at Caribbean Beach Resort and while it was an entirely different atmosphere, the area right around our room was equally private and secluded.  I think that because the resort is so widely spread out, it seems like you're the only guest in attendance.  One difference between it and Port Orleans Riverside was that the food court was much louder.  The music they play at Caribbean Beach isn't as subdued and laid back--if you will--as that of Port Orleans.  I feel like the music alone lends to a more upbeat and bustling feel at Caribbean Beach.

    Coronado Springs is also very set apart; my stay there seemed just as private as my stay at the other two resorts.  One thing to note though is that Coronado Springs hosts lots of business travelers and they tend to come in a little later and a little more rowdy than the average family. 

    I suppose your interpretation of "quiet and private" will have to be the deciding factor.  I've found each of the moderates to be "private."  As for "quiet" it depends on if you're talking actual noise level, or peaceful, relaxing atmosphere.  If you're looking for the latter, I think the quiet charm of Port Orleans Riverside is tough to beat!
