    We are trying to decide between the Port Orleans - Riverside and Coronado Springs. We will be traveling with a 3 year old and are wondering how far into the bus stops each of these resorts are? I'm struggling to decide between the two, which one is best.

    Since a younger child will be with you, I would recommend Port Orleans Riverside.

    I recently stayed at Coronado Springs and found the resort to be quite vast.  While the Casitas, Ranchos and Cabanas buildings are set around a beautiful lake, there is not one building that is convenient to every thing.

    If you are in Casita 1, you'll be close to the main building which houses the Front Desk, gift shop and food court but you will be quite far from the pool.

    Port Orleans Riverside is also large but you will have more of an opportunity to secure a room close to the pool, food court and other amenities.

    In addition, Coronado Springs also has Convention facilities and adds more of a business atmosphere to the resort.

    Have a wonderful vacation.
