    Have stayed 3 times at WL. This year wanted to stay longer at mod. I am trying to decide between POFQ and CS. Just me and DD7 for 10 days with no hopper. Any thoughts?

    Hi, Billie!   Spending 10 days in WDW sounds awesome!   I am very jealous!

    While I love both Port Orleans French Quarter and Coronado Springs, since you are planning a long vacation I would choose Port Orleans.   The main reason for this is the easy boat transportation to Downtown Disney from Port Orleans.   It is a lovely ride and this will give you some nice dining alternatives and fun activities.   If you need some time away from the parks, you can hop on the boat and be in Downtown Disney after a leisurely "cruise" and you can go catch a movie, see Cirque du Soleil La Nouba, do some serious shopping, or see WDW from 400 feet up on Characters in Flight - a helium balloon ride.  

    Also, Port Orleans French Quarter is a much smaller resort compared to Coronado Springs.   After days and days of walking in the parks, you will appreciate the smaller resort with less walking.

    I hope you and your daughter enjoy your extended stay in Disney!
