    Hi! Planning a Girls Trip w/my DDs (21 & 23), need advice on where to stay - l looking @ Moderate to lower Deluxe. This will be their 1st trip to WDW. Thanks for your help!

    Hi, Dellene!  I have to tell you, I really like Disney's Coronado Springs resort.  It's a moderate resort, but with the recently refurbished rooms, there is definitely a more deluxe feel to this resort.  The pool area is great, and there are several quiet pools where you can relax without being overwhelmed by the kids, who tend to favor the main pool.  I also really like the food court concept used at the Pepper Market.  You can go from station to station, choosing the food you'd like, and you get your ticket stamped and pay when you are through.  There are also some club level rooms available here at a price that is less expensive than at a deluxe resort, but you can get turn down service and a lounge with continental breakfast. 

    The resort itself is pretty spread out, but bell services is fairly accommodating at helping you get your luggage to your room.  There is also an internal shuttle service to get you to and from your room if you need this type of service.

    You will also find Rix nightclub here, and the Maya Grill, a table service restaurant with some very good meal choices.

    One of the most reasonably priced deluxe hotels is Animal Kingdom Lodge.  You will find the standard view room there about $100 more per night.  You gain a little extra space in your room, and you'll find three very nice sit down restaurants there.   For a bit more money, you can upgrade to a savanna view to watch the animals right from your balcony.

    Wherever you decide to stay, I hope your girls have a fabulous trip!
