    Hi we are regular WDW visitors and always stay at All-star Resorts, we now fancy trying somewhere different for 2017 and loved the look of Contemporary Resort but its too expensive. Any recommendations, 2 adults and 2 boys ages will be 8 & 4yrs?

    Hi, Helen!

    It sounds like a Moderate Resort might be the perfect answer for you. Moderates will give you a few advantages over Value Resorts without the super high prices of a Deluxe Resort.

    By upgrading to a Moderate Resort from a Value Resort, you will get larger rooms with Queen Size beds, nicer linens, plusher landscaping around the resort, a Table Service Restaurant (exception: French Quarter which shares its restaurant with Riverside), covered bus areas, and a hot tub near the feature pool.

    My favorite Moderate Resort is Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter. At around 1,000 rooms, it is the smallest of the Moderate Resort options. There is just one convenient bus stop, a wonderful food court, and even boat service to Disney Springs. You can take a delightful 10-15 walk to sister resort Riverside where you can rent bikes or enjoy their pools and restaurants.

    French Quarter has a lovely pool area with a pool slide that will be just perfect for your kids, and within the last year, a fun splash zone was added, great for an afternoon break from the theme parks.

    I hope you find the perfect resort that will fit your budget and fill the needs of your family. Each and every resort has its own bit of personality and magic, so you cannot go wrong with whatever you decide upon.

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
