    Still trying to decide on a resort for WDW 11/21-27. 2 adults, 2 kids 13, 16. I think we've narrowed it down to 2 rooms at Port Orleans Riv or Coronado Springs or one room at the Beach Club or Bay Lake Tower. We've been to POR. Suggestions?

    Hi Cherie!  If you don't plan on spending a lot of time in your room then I would suggest getting the one room at the Beach Club for the convenience of being within walking distance to two parks.  You are literally five minutes away from the International Gateway entrance to EPCOT and then a mile walk or a 15 minute boat ride to the entrance to Hollywood Studios.  In addition you have all the fun and dining options in the Boardwalk area making this a great location.

    Bay Lake Towers is one of Disney's newest lodging opportunities but with the age of your children I will assume that the Magic Kingdom is not going to be their primary park to spend their time in.  The location of Bay Lake Towers is great if you are going to be going back and forth to the Magic Kingdom during your stay.

    If you still feel you wish to have the extra room and opt for the moderate choice then I would suggest you continue at Port Orleans. This resort gives you that great option of taking the boats to Downtown Disney for more fun and dining there as well.
