The 5 Moderate Resorts
Now we'll quickly cover the five Resort Hotels that fall in the Moderate category, so you can determine which one might be the best for your family.
1. Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort
Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort boasts a lush tropical theme reminiscent of five Caribbean islands — Barbados, Jamaica, Martinique, Trinidad and Aruba — complete with Colonial Revival architecture, swinging hammocks, exotic and colorful foliage, and even pirate-themed rooms. It alls feels like stepping into a swashbuckling adventure tale that your family will never forget.
2. Disney's Coronado Springs Resort
Coronado Springs, by contrast, is where you go to bask in romantic Spanish-colonial Mexico. They've got a number of hammocks along a white sand beach — which are first-come, first-serve — where you can gently swing your worries away. When you're in the mood for fun later, the Mayan ruins-themed pool features a 50-foot pyramid with a 123-foot-long waterslide you may choose to brave if you dare.
3. Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter
Port Orleans French Quarter is one of the smaller resorts on this list, but don't be mistaken — it's among the liveliest and best-themed resorts in all of Disney World. They've got live jazz, they've got Cajun and Creole food, and there's a whole lotta Mardi Gras charm everywhere you look. How could you not love this place?
4. Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside
Whereas the French Quarter half of this twin resort complex is more about the spirit of partying, its counterpart, Port Orleans Riverside, presents Louisiana's more quaint, genteel side. Here you can experience the stately elegance of the Antellbellum South, or soak in the rustic charm of the Bayou.
Either way, you'll truly feel as though you've been transported back to an era of steamboat travel, mint juleps on the front porch, and southern hospitality.
5. The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort
For those of you who own (or live in) an RV, you've no doubt heard about Disney's Fort Wilderness campground. There's no other place in the world where you can walk out of your camper and be a mere bus and/or boat ride away from Magic Kingdom. Camping anywhere else just isn't the same.
If you don'thave an RV but still think Fort Wilderness sounds like a place you'd like to try staying at, you can reserve one of their private cabins and discover some of the greatest comfort one can find on the American frontier. Tucked among the pines and away from the crowds, these rustic hideaways will almostmake it feel like you're "roughing it" out there — except for the fact that each cabin is fully furnished and full of modern appliances and other conveniences. You don't even have to do your own dishes, thanks to the wonderful housekeeping staff!
