    Hi panel I am planning a G. Gathering vacation for Nov 09- specifically the week of Thanksgiving and we want to stay at a mod. resort. This is the first time at WDW for most of us and I am not sure which one to choose. We have 3 children-11, 7 & 4. H

    If all three of those children will be staying in one room with you and another adult you have but one option.  Not to worry though - it would be my first choice either way!

    Port Orleans Riverside is the only moderate resort that can accommodate a family of five in one room.  Most of the rooms in the Alligator Bayou section of the resort are equipped with a trundle bed in addition to the two double beds.  While the trundle bed is not the same size as a standard twin size mattress, it can comfortably accommodate y our four-year-old.

    Like I said, Port Orleans Riverside would be my first choice either way.  I've had the opportunity to stay in three of the four moderate resorts and of them, Port Orleans Riverside is my absolute favorite.  I love the quiet southern charm that is brought to life in the theming.  From the towering pine trees to the ducks that waddle ashore near the banks of the Sassagoula River, everything at Port Orleans Riverside lends that down-home southern feeling. 

    Other perks of Port Orleans Riverside? 
    - the availability of a pirate cruise or fishing excursion
    - boat and surrey bike rentals available at the marina
    - carriage rides through the gorgeous grounds
    - an on-site lounge
    - a fun themed pool and a nice food court

    Hope that helps!
