    I am struggling on which moderate resort to stay at for our vacation in January 2012. It states that Port Orleans French Quarter has 2 queen beds although it seems like Riverside has more amenities. I am also looking at Caribbean Beach. Any suggestions

    Hi, Kim!

    Full disclosure: I am a huge fan of Port Orleans French Quarter! It's my favorite Moderate Resort. That said, I'll tell you why I prefer it over the other Moderates.

    The queen beds - and the recently renovated rooms - are a huge draw. The space is used well, and does not feel cramped, even with the two larger beds.

    The Resort is smaller than the other Moderates (Caribbean Beach, for example, is a convention facility), and that adds to the intimate, cozy feel of the place. Logistically, the bus lines seem to be less crowded than those on the larger Resorts.

    As for amenities, you can't go wrong at either Riverside or French Quarter: the Port Orleans share their amenities! Traveling between the two Resorts might warrant some good walking shoes, but the Florida weather in January is historically beautiful for a stroll.

    Either way, when you stay at a Disney Resort, you'll be treated to the kind of hospitality experience tat earns it its incredible reputation, and that's a given!

    Have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator!
