We just got back from another stay at the WDW Resort in Florida - staying at Disney's Port Orleans, French Quarter Resort. It was FANTASTIC. We had a party of 13 and although we had different check-in days, the front desk did everything they could to keep us close together (within the same building/floor/etc).
The resort had been refurbished since our last stay two years ago and what an improvement! Now there are two queen beds (vs the previous two double beds) and the bathroom has been upgraded to include pedestal sinks with much more storage room for toiletries. We thoroughly enjoyed the space and additional shelf space!
The resort is just beautiful, kept remarkably clean and landscaping is just lovely.
The pool area is perfect for kids (and adult-kids, too!) and they have pool-side activities daily - so there's something for just about everyone. The lifeguards came up to my family and told us that we could "rent" lifejackets for our little daughters so that they could enjoy the pool more during our stay, which was awesome.
Our Mousekeepers were fairly good - some days better than others. (they didn't replace our soap or tissue boxes so we had to take care of that ourselves which was the only bad part - and that's a very minor issue)
The location to the parks is ideal at PO - only a couple minutes to each park, especially EPCOT and MK - the farthest park is AK, and even that is only 5 more minutes away.
I would highly recommend this resort to any family looking for a wonderful, on-property stay (with out breaking the bank!).
