    Planning 10 days, end of August, looking for best choice on hotel (moderate). We don't plan on spending tons of time in room, but would like the option of waterslide for kids. Fun themed rooms? Good transportation? How are Cabins? Our kids are 7 &

    Hi Marianne!
    Right now, I am sitting here very jealous! 10 days at Walt Disney World sounds awesome as I'm surrounded by 3 feet of snow in Massachusetts. Anyway, I digress...The moderate resorts are a great way to stretch your budget while still getting to enjoy the magic and benefits of staying at a Disney property. Although I feel each of the "moderates" has their individual pros and cons, I feel most strongly about staying at Port Orleans Riverside. The resort setting is magnificent!! In addition, Ol' Man Island is one of the better resort swimming pools with a decent slide and a refreshing waterfall. I also love the food court with at least 4-5 separate offerings at every meal. For example, dinner offers a fresh deluxe salad station, fresh made-to-order pasta bar, pizza service, sandwiches made to order, and hot entree choices. Also, Boatwright's Dining Hall is a wonderful sit down, full service restaurant located right next to the food court. Plus, don't forget to check out YeeHaw Bob in the lounge on select nights if he is playing. The kids will LOVE it (and so will you). There are also plenty of recreation options including boat rentals, fishing, horse-drawn carriage rides, plus, Port Orleans Riverside is one of the few resorts where you can even take a nice boat cruise to Downtown Disney for dinner, shopping or just to walk around a bit. I feel this resort has everything that you could want or need, and it is my absolute favorite moderate hotel property. I hope this helps!! :)
