"Which Moderate Resort is the best"
The Moderates are the next price level for Disney resorts. The moderate resorts are Caribbean Beach, Coronado Springs, and Port Orleans Riverside and French Quarter.
These resort rooms are bigger than the values and offer a few more amenities. These resorts each have a unique theme to them, but not quite as over-the –top as the Value Resorts. Again, themed pools can be found on each property. Rooms will cost anywhere from $149 - $240 depending on your vacation season. One extra note is that Coronado Springs has a convention center and thus can have more crowds at its resort at certain times of the year than the other moderates.
So which Moderate is the best? Our vote is for Port Orleans French Quarter. It is the smallest of the Moderates and offers one of the best pools at Walt Disney World. By being the smallest moderate resort, things are very centrally located. It is an easy walk from anywhere on the resort to the bus stop, pool, lobby, or food court/restaurant. It also has a convenient boat dock, where you can ride to Downtown Disney in about 15 minutes.
Caribbean Beach is nice, but it is very spread out and you would probably need a car to maximize your time there. Coronado Springs is also a convention center, thus having more people than Port Orleans French Quarter.
The other choice would be Port Orleans Riverside, but this resort is more spread out and larger than it sister resort, the French Quarter. If you want a little bit bigger room, and more coziness for a bit more money than a value, our vote is more Port Orleans French Quarter.
