    Hello! I am planning our honeymoon for 10/27/13-11/04/13 We are on a tight budget but I still want the intimacy and privacy away from the value hotels as I feel they are more kid oriented, but am not sure what hotel to choose? Is the water park worth it?

    It is such an honor to be able to help you plan such a special getaway! I have heard so many stories of couples who had the most magical experiences so I'm sure you're in for  a real treat!  What a way to start your new life together!!!

    If you can swing it, I recommend bumping up to the Moderate level resorts.  For a small difference in price, the benefits are HUGE!  The moderate resorts provide guests with a more intimate experience that feels more like a resort and less like a hotel.  The rooms are larger and more ornate, the pools are highly themed and immersive, there are more options for dining and recreation, and they are generally more quiet and relaxed!

    Of all of the moderate level resorts, my absolute favorite, and the one I find to be extremely romantic, is Port Orleans Riverside.  I love it so much, it has become my go to resort and I keep coming back. I just can't get enough of the shady oaks lining the paths to the picturesque Sassagoula River, the hooves of horses clopping in the moonlight as they pull guests in beautiful carriages, and the hum of the Sassagoula Riverboats as they pass by transporting guests to Downtown Disney. 

    The mansion rooms are my favorite, as they are elegantly appointed with rich fabrics and luxurious details, reminiscent of homes in the antebellum South.  The rooms have been recently refurbished to include a fresh look and queen sized beds.  They're practically brand new.  Having stayed here umpteen times, I definitely recommend Port Orleans Riverside to you first hand!  I just know it is the perfect resort to fit your budget while still providing a romantic atmosphere for your magical milestone!

    I'm here if you have any additional questions regarding Port Orleans or any other aspect of your honeymoon! -Amanda F.
