We went on our first trip to Disney in April of 2004. We were going to stay at the Pop Century, but ended up getting a better deal at the French Quarter (it was reopening after a renovation), I have to say that I was not disappointed,Disney lived up to my expectations. The atmosphere of the resort was charming. We also checked out Riverside while we were there and I don't think it even compared to French Quarter (although it may be undergoing renovation). The boy's stuffed animals were creatively displayed in the room every day when we returned and they enjoyed the special treatment.
The pool area is great (no need to bring your own towels and life jackets are provided for those who can't swim) and the boys are still talking about the dragon slide! The only improvement might be the selection in the food court (maybe more salads), but overall the food is great for little ones. We checked out the Contemporary and Polynesian resorts and I think that I would have been very disappointed if I had spent the $ to stay at either place (FQ is much prettier and cheaper). We are planning a trip back in 2006 and will probably stay here again!
