Art of Animation Value Resort - My boys would love it here!
Moderate Resort - Port Orleans Riverside
Stately mansions and a fun pool (where I enjoyed being a big kid!)
Moderate Resorts - Caribbean Beach, Coronado Springs, Port Orleans Riverside, and Port Orleans French Quarter - These resorts feature more "subtle" Disney theming while transporting you to another place. The grounds of each of these are beautiful and spread out over the greatest distance - something that may sound wonderfully relaxing to some of you or incredible inconvenient to others. Recently, Disney has updated some rooms in these resorts to make a more magical and themed experience including Pirate themed rooms at Caribbean Beach Resort. I've stayed at the Caribbean Beach Resort back in 1994 and Port Orleans Riverside in 2008. Dan and I really enjoyed our time at Port Orleans Riverside and I would say it's my recommendation out of this category. It seems to be universally well liked on all of the Disney Social Media groups that I follow and the laid back theming of an old Mississippi River plantation allows you to truly feel relaxed on your vacation.
|Beautiful, modern, and close to the Magic Kingdom!|

Studio properties offer a larger room size and kitchenette matched with the luxury of a Deluxe Resort
Other Disney Options - Campsites and Cabins at Fort Wilderness - If you are looking for a "rustic" experience while visiting Disney, these are two options you may want to consider. The campsites are available to rent if you are visiting with your camper while the cabins offer a woodland setting and accommodations for 6. These are both over by Wilderness Lodge and offer boat transportation to Magic Kingdom (busses everywhere else), campfires in the evening, and easy access to the Hoop-Dee-Do Revue. I can't give an honest review or recommendation here because I haven't experienced either of these. Those who know me, know I'm not a big "camper."
|Yeah. This is me.|
