    1st visit to WDW 2/12. I have a 3 year old and 1.5 year old. What moderate resort is best and why?

    Hi Kristen,

    You could never go wrong with any of Disney's moderate resorts; however, my family's favorite is Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter.  We love this resort because it is smaller than the other moderate resorts.  If you love the city of New Orleans, then you will love this resort.  It is inspired by the historic French Quarter in New Orleans.

    Doubloon Lagoon, the pool complex, includes a waterslide which is very fun!  There's also a playground that your kids will enjoy.  Not far from the Doubloon Lagoon is Sassagoula Floatworks and Food Factory Food Court.  You will find American and Creole food in the food court.  Be sure to try the Beignets!!  Just make sure you have plenty of napkins for the powdered sugar. If the food court does not satisfy your appetite, then you can take the water taxi (free of charge) to Downtown Disney.  There's a wide variety of restaurants to choose from here.  I hope this helps!

    Have a magical day!
