    My boyfriend and I are looking to stay at a Moderate Resort in the park but are unsure which one would be the best?

    I've enjoyed the opportunity to stay in three of the four moderate resorts and my favorite is Port Orleans Riverside.  The only moderate I've yet to be a guest in is Port Orleans French Quarter, though during our last visit we did walk from Riverside to the French Quarter and what I did see of the resort was quite charming. 

    One of my favorite things about Riverside is that the grounds are absolutely gorgeous.  During our stay, the short stroll along the Sassagoula River from Lodge 18 in the Alligator Bayou section to the Resort Center was always delightful.  The ducks that waddle around near the river's edge seemed to add to the whimsy of our stay.  My husband and I also appreciated the opportunity to unwind at the River Roost Lounge in the evenings.  Since it will just be you and your boyfriend, you might be interested in one of the romantic horse-drawn carriage rides that meander through the Riverside grounds.  Call 407-WDW-PLAY for information and reservations.

    Each of the moderate resorts offers fun theming and good amenities and I'm sure you'll both enjoy your stay whichever you opt for.  I recommend Riverside over the other three because in my experience it has more of a "deluxe" feel for a moderate price.  Good luck with your decision!
