    We want to upgrade from Pop Century to moderate. I am renting an ECV. My daughter will be 12 and wants water slides/fun pool. Husband wants his hot tub. Which do you recommend as choices (1,2,&3)? Not CBR due to refurbishment. Thanks. LOVE this site!

    Hi Beth!   I think you actually described Coronado Springs!  It has an incredible 10,800 sq. ft. pool with a 123 foot water slide near a large play area.  Did I also mention it has the largest hot tub/spa in WDW? So, I think that is my first choice for you.  
    My second choice is the smallest of the moderate resorts which may be helpful for you with the ECV rental since it has only one bus stop:  Port Orleans - French Quarter.  It has a fun swimming areal with a serpent watching over the pool; the slide is actually its tongue!  It, too, has a hot tub.  
    Finally, Port Orleans - Riverside also has all you've requested and is actually the resort we stay most often at and is themed with two areas from the South:  the bayou and the antebellum South.  
    Overall, the resorts are all equally lovely with water slides and hot tubs, but I think Coronado Springs edges out the others with its fabulous pool area.
