    I need to pick a value resort for a 1 night stay. We are flying in the night before our booked reservation at POR. NO AOA. Help me choose. Which has the best pools? Food Court? I have 2 boys aged 7 and 8. Thank you.

    Hi Tiffany! 

    I highly recommend Disney's All Star Movies Resort. This was my son's favorite when he was your boys' ages, and it still it! This resort is themed around some of the best Disney movies, such as Toy Story, 101 Dalmatians, Mighty Ducks and Fantasia. 

    The pool at this resort is huge and is themed after the movie Fantasia. The pools at all of the All Star Movie Resorts are great, but I'm a Disney movie buff, so this one is my favorite among the value resorts.

    The World Premiere Food Court has a wide variety of options that accommodate a variety of palates. My kids loved that they could get pizza, chicken fingers or burgers, while I loved that there were healthy options like a custom salad station, hummus and fresh fruit.

    You can also enjoy Movies Under the Stars by the pool at night. 

    Your boys will also love Port Orleans Riverside! While you are there don't miss experiencing a surrey bike rental, fishing or the horse drawn carriage!
