    I am trying to decide between pop and PO French quarter. My only concern is which is easier and quickest to get my 1 & 3 year olds back to the room mid day for a nap and quickly back to the parks so we don't miss too much? This is our first trip!!!

    Hey Chace!  I completely understand your concern. When my toddlers are tired they turn from beauties into beasts very quickly.   A expeditious escape to  the comfort of a resort is VERY important.  You have narrowed it down to some incredible picks!  Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter would be my top choice for your family for the following reasons:
    • The Port Orleans French Quarter Resort is smaller than Pop Century, allowing for a short walk from the bus depot to any room on property.  This is a lifesaver for tired feet after a long day in the parks. 
    • Port Orleans French Quarter is just a boat ride away from Downtown Disney for any shopping you may want to do at World Of Disney, or any of the other fabulous shops. 
    • You will find Queen beds at this resort- a benefit  if you are having to share beds with children. 
    • You are able to use the pool and recreational activities at Port Orleans Riverside.  You can rent surrey bikes, fish, or even take a carriage ride along the Sassagoula River! 
    • Last but not least the Mardi Gras themed pool area!  If your toddlers are water lovers like mine, they will never want to leave.

    Laissez  le bon temps rouler!  (Let the good times roll) I hope you have a truly terrific time planning your Walt Disney World  vacation.  If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask!
