    Hi moms!My DH, 6 kids (ages 2-13)and myself, will be at DW this fall for the 5th time.We have reservations at CS but after reading some responses from the mom's panel, I am worried that my kids won't enjoy this resort. Is there a better moderate? been 2 CB

    Hi Andrea!

         My recommendation for you and your family is Port Orleans Resort - Riverside! I have stayed there twice and I have loved it each time! Port Orleans - Riverside has two main sections: Alligator Bayou which has quaint cottage type buildings and Magnolia Bend which has stately mansion buildings. The buildings in Alligator Bayou that are closest to the Ol' Man Island Pool, main lobby, and a bus station (the South Depot Stop) are Buildings 14, 15, 16, and 18. The buildings in Alligator Bayou are definitely smaller than the buildings of Magnolia Bend. The buildings in Magnolia Bend that are closest to the Ol' Man Island Pool, main lobby, and a bus station (the East Depot Stop) are Buildings 85 and 90 (Oak Manor and Parterre Place). Port Orleans Resort - Riverside has a nice Table Service restaurant called Boatwright's Dining Hall where you can make an Advanced Dining Reservation and enjoy a great meal! You will have to get two rooms because of the number of people in your family (you can request adjoining rooms).  Some of the rooms in Alligator Bayou have a Murphy bed and sleep up to five people (most of the other rooms at Prot Orleans -Riverside sleep up to 4 people).  You really can't go wrong when you stay at Walt Disney World Moderate Resort! 

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
