    Trying to research and decide on best Moderate Resort to stay at; have two young kids. Please give your experience. Many Thanks!

    Hi Khai, I'm happy to help. My absolute favorite Moderate Resort is Disney's Port Orleans French Quarter. The theme of this resort is that of New Orleans' French Quarter, with wrought-iron railings, quaint little landscaped areas and buildings that make you feel like you just strolled into history. It's a wonderful resort choice for young children because the pool area features a giant sea serpent that doubles as a water slide. There is a kiddie pool as well as some fun alligators that spray water.

    Port Orleans French Quarter has a great food court where you can even get fresh beignets! If you'd like a table service restaurant, it's just a short walk or boat ride away at the sister resort, Port Orleans Riverside. From either hotel you can grab a boat over to the Downtown Disney area as well. My family loved it at both places and I think they are a great, convenient choice for any family.

    Another popular option is Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. This resort has an amazing pirate-themed pool area and Pirate or Nemo themed rooms are also available. There is also a food court here where you can even get a kids meal served in a sand pail with a shovel! My one caution with this resort is it is very large and spread out, so if you are at one of the more removed buildings, you may have a bit of a trek to get to the main dining and feature pool area. (Shuttles are provided too.) There are other quiet pools throughout the resort, however.

    I hope this gives you a little idea about what to expect at each of the resorts above. Check out the links and see which one looks like a fit for your family. If you have any other questions about a specific resort or what your family might need, please don't hesitate to ask! :)
