    Planning a trip for July 2020. I would like to know opinions on Coronado Springs and Port Orleans Riverside? which one is better?

    Hi there, James! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We appreciate you taking the time to stop by and ask your wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation question!

    As someone that adores each and every Disney Resort hotel, I'm a bit hard-pressed to tell you which one is the "best"! To be honest, I truly believe that each resort appeals to individual families and their specific circumstances based on a variety of factors. However, I will try my best to outline some of the key differences between Disney's Coronado Springs Resort and Disney's Port Orleans Resort- Riverside to assist you in making your decision!

    Disney's Coronado Springs Resort recently underwent a massive re-imagining that has transformed all of the Guest rooms as well as the majority of their exterior structures. There are now many new dining options, such as the roof-top Toledo - Tapas, Steak, & Seafood, as well as gorgeous new updates to the Guest room amenities. This Disney Resort hotel also has a convention center so it's not uncommon to see Guests dressed in professional attire during your stay.

    Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside captures the leisurely charm of rural Louisiana while providing an experience full of amenities for Guests! Guests can look forward to exploring the densely wooded trails around the property or taking part in a Horse-Drawn Carriage Ride to travel in style. 

    Ultimately, both Disney Resort hotels boost many different amenities I'm sure you and your family will love! I believe one of the best ways to make your decision may be to think about which theme you would prefer. Do you enjoy the bright South American stylings seen at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort or do you prefer the relaxing Southern charm of Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside?

    Best of luck continuing to plan for your vacation to Walt Disney World Resort!
