    Hi! I'm planning a trip to Disney World this September. I'm going with my 7 year old daughter and wasn't sure where the best place to stay is. I definitely do not have the budget for the higher end hotels, but I really want to make this a special trip.

    Hi Carmela!

    No worries! All of the Walt Disney World resorts are great places to stay. In fact, one of my favorite resorts is in the Moderate category, Port Orleans French Quarter and one of the main reasons is due to its size.

    French Quarter is the smallest of the moderates, which means that everything is within a quick walk (a huge perk at the end of a long park day!!). Another asset of this resort is its incredible New Orleans theme that just envelopes you in the feel of the "old South".

    Perks of this resort (besides being beautiful) include boat transportation to Downtown Disney, use of the pool and amenities at Riverside (included since French Quarter and Riverside are sister resorts), and a great quick service restaurant featuring Beignets for breakfast! YUM!!

    You and your family will have a ton of fun exploring the grounds of both French Quarter and Riverside and checking out the pools and slides at both resorts. Don't forget to hop a boat to Downtown Disney for a nice way to send a few quiet moments traveling down the lazy river!

    For a great choice in the Value category, I highly recommend Pop Century. This resort will take you back through different decades and their icons. The flower shaped main pool is a great place to spend an afternoon or two. Plus, this value resort does not typically share any bus transportation with other resorts - which can be quite a perk!

    Hope this helps!
