    Shelley Asked

    Family of 5 STILLl undecided where to stay without breaking the bank. Is there much of difference between Yacht and Beach Club Resorts? PORS looks cramped for 5-is it the same for the others? Do you recommend the quick dining plan? Thank you!

    I can't blame you for your indecisiveness, Shelley; there are so many resorts to choose from that it can be difficult to settle on just one!  As for the Yacht and Beach Club resorts, there are subtle differences for sure.  While the Beach Club delivers a more laid-back feel, the Yacht Club is more sophisticated (though not the least bit stuffy).  They are literally located steps apart so you'll enjoy the proximity to Epcot no matter which of them you choose.  And the pool is to- notch!

    Port Orleans Riverside rooms can accommodate five as long as you don't mind getting cozy with your family.  The same goes for most of the standard resort rooms, though; none are overly spacious, no matter where you stay.  Size-wise, standard rooms at Port Orleans Riverside are about 314 square feet whereas the standard rooms at both the Beach and Yacht Club resorts are 380 square feet. 

    My family would never opt for the quick service meal plan because we enjoy the table service restaurants so much and they add a lot of fun to our trips.  For families who are accustomed to eating fast food on a more regular basis, the quick service dining plan is a great option.  Enjoy!
