I have a question. I have visited the parks twice and stayed at the value resorts both times. We are hoping to go back in January and I want to stay at the next step up hotel (Caribbean beach, port Orleans, or Coronado Springs). Which do you think is best? We will have my son who will almost be 5 and daughter almost 2. And also, my family and in laws who would like a bar area at the hotel :) they didn't care for the value resorts bar. Any info would be appreciated! Thanks!!

POR. They have a bar - 5disneylovers  1254.6 #7 2:06PM
Never stayed at Coronado springs. They have a pool bar as well - 5disneylovers  1254.6 #7 2:09PM
Thanks! - brodysmommy  467.4 #505 11:12PM
Well I don't know if they have a bar. But you could get a pirate themed room at the caribbean beach that would be slot of fun for your daughter and son - klperry07  11.9 #232 1:56PM
Brody would love that! - brodysmommy  467.4 #505 11:12PM
I only have stayed at Port Orleans Riverside every time we go to WDW. We love it, its nice and open and beautiful. It's so nice to go out your room door and be outside and take in the warmth. The food court is nice and the nice walks to the bus stops are refreshing. Each section of buildings has a pool and there is a pool for everyone with some fun stuff for kids. There are also a lot of activities to do, campfire, carriage rides, bike rentals, boat rides to DTD, entertainment, caricatures, etc. I had family who just returned from a stay at Coronado Springs with two 8 year olds and they said it was not a good place for kids, the pool was great but the resort wasn't the best. Caribbean Beach seems nice too but I'm a POR girl at heart haha. - ariel116  103.7 #71 2:07PM
They do have a River Roost bar too, Yee-haw bob does entertainment there, he's hilarious! - ariel116  103.7 #71 2:08PM
Yee haw bob? That sounds right up my dads alley!! He loves the billy hillbillies at DL!! - brodysmommy  467.4 #505 2:59PM
haha he's a piano guy, he does a great comedy show! - ariel116  103.7 #71 3:33PM
Oh that sounds cool! - brodysmommy  467.4 #505 11:13PM
We stayed at CB in feb. nothing wrong with it but just something missing - that's why we're going 'home' to OKW next week! It wasn't beach weather in feb but the beach area would be great for kids. Bar area is outdoors, food court was ok but not much menu variation. Lot of walking around the resort. Still enjoyed every minute ! - rink2  304.8 #30 2:21PM
Thank you! - brodysmommy  467.4 #505 11:16PM
We've stayed at Caribbean Beach and Coronado Springs. Both have great pools and good bars (although we didn't use the CB one). I did not like CB, I thought cuz I love the beach I would, but nope. We loved Coronado Springs, it's our favorite resort to date. The rooms are newly remodeled and the grounds were very lovely. At CB we had a room with mold and they seemed dated to me. I did like CB food court, but not many people eat at their resort. - DizneyGirl  1152.2 #8 2:26PM
Great thanks for the info!! Seems that POR is the one most people like so far... - brodysmommy  467.4 #505 11:17PM
Coronado Springs is the best moderate resort !!!! Very enjoyable . - skcanfield  589.2 #14 3:32PM
Thanks! - brodysmommy  467.4 #505 11:15PM
We have stayed at CBR and just returned home from POR. We liked both. POR is so peaceful and serene. Lots to do for a January trip. They have a good beat with a funny piano man. They have royal rooms with fibro optic headboards which my boy and girl loved. You will not be disappointed with POR. CBR has a better pool for your age kids with a nice outdoor bar. I just don't know how much you will be using those facilities in January. If you look through my old posts, I have pics of both. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #650 3:49PM
Great thanks! Ill take a look tomorrow since it so late! But yeah, I can see us using the spa. If there is one, and not really the pool in January. We just know that's a slow time so that's when we are hoping to go - brodysmommy  467.4 #505 11:15PM
POR - Tazhalo  72.8 #90 4:02PM
My favorite moderate resort is POFQ! I don't like POR at all! (I've never stayed there, but visited & shared buses with POR guests.) POFQ is a lot quieter and has better bus service. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1475.3 #3 4:36PM
I've stayed st both and like both. POR has a bar and POFQ is smaller and easier to get around. - ally  509.0 #18 10:29PM
I like the idea of small and easier to get around but I know the bar is gonna be a selling point for everyone else - brodysmommy  467.4 #505 11:14PM
Stayed at the CBR this last march and thought the foot court was limited. Stayed at CSR last year and the foot court had much more to choose from. I would have to go with CSR over all. - dadwholovesdisney  68.3 #93 4:51PM
Thanks! - brodysmommy  467.4 #505 11:13PM
We have stayed @ CSR & POR ... Both are beautiful, we liked POR better for the more peaceful environment, but CSR has a pool that us more fun for the kids and a really nice pool bar. - Sirabi74  13.3 #218 8:26PM
Yeah I like the quiet atmosphere and think it would be better for the kids but will have to see what others want to do - brodysmommy  467.4 #505 11:12PM
Thank you for all the feedback! Yeah pool wise I can't see any of us really using it, unless there is a spa. We normally don't spend much time in the rooms but now with the kids we go back for 'nap' time and the adults tend to join to have a few drinks. So they weren't too impressed or wanting to hang at the value resort bar so was hoping for a step up so that's why I figured I'd ask! :) - brodysmommy  467.4 #505 10:36PM
