I'm a big fan of Port Orleans French Quarter.

Port Orleans Riverside, in a new Royal Room, with queen beds! Fabulous! Beautiful resort, boat to DTD, carriage rides through the grounds. Lovely, for the tweens and their parents!

CRB has full size beds, but more square footage, in the rooms.

CSR has a wonderful pool and more "deluxe" amenities. Queen beds and same size rooms as POR.

Happy planning!

Coronado Springs is also lovey

Hi mutter38, do you know when the free dining offers usually come out? Co-incidence, we too are looking for accommodation for 8 days (family of 4) in September and will wait to book anything if they are likely to have a free dining offer.

Much appreciated, Thanks

when looking, I found it was a big jump in price from value to moderate on the disney site, so would rather have more money to spend than a luxurious room lol, though it seems you English folk seem to get good deals on accomodation & stuff, we not so lucky...

Bigmumma...Offers from the UK are not better,

Uk never gets free dining on value resorts...international bookings get free qs dining plan when available.

UK get free qsdp with moderate resorts..international bookings get free regular dp.

UK has to book a delux resort to get free regular dp. The last offer Disney did Uk was only offered free qsdp with every level of accommodation. Uk has to book far in advance..International have yet to announce free dining for this year...the Uk' s have been and gone and they will soon start offering for 2014!

Another big difference is we have to book a 14day unlimited ticket to get free dining, international bookings can book a few day base tickets.

Both have their advantages and their disadvantages.

But you very often (or maybe all the time?) get a room discount and free dining. The rest of us have to pick between the two. Someone once said (think it was bruces girl?) they got room discount, free dining and a disney gift card!! So if I was getting both discounts, I wouldn't mind booking the deluxe :)

oh yes we can stack certain offers..i got 35% room discount, free dining and a $100 gift card at old key west. Saratoga springs & old key west tend to come up with a room discount quite often for the uk but they are the only resorts that regularly come up...yes we can get free dining for most of the year when its available but we have to book about a year in advance...like I say both have there advantages and disadvantages.
