    What is the main differnce between value and moderate resorts? We are traveling with kiddos ages 2 & 5.

    Hi, Jennifer!   Deciding between a Value and Moderate Resort can be a tough decision!   Here is some information on each of the categories:

    Rooms in a Value Resort are approximately 260 square feet.   Rooms have 2 double beds, 1 sink in the bathroom, plastic drinking glasses.   Each Value Resort has a huge food court, and big pools with fun themes (no pool slide.)   Refrigerators are available for rent at about $10 per day.   These are the least expensive rooms on Disney property.

    Rooms in a Moderate Resort measure about 314 square feet.   Rooms have 2 double beds and 2 bathroom sinks (with the exception of Coronado Springs which has 1 sink.) A refrigerator is included in your room, and you get upgraded to glass drinking glasses!  Pools have slides and fancier pool areas, like the Pirate Ship theme at Caribbean Beach.    Moderate Resorts have smaller food courts, but each has a sit-down restaurant (Riverside and French Quarter share one sit-down restaurant.)

    What is the same about both resort levels?   Both get free use of Disney's Magical Express airport transportation, transportation around WDW property, and that world famous Disney Magic 24/7!

    If you are on a budget, Value Resorts are a great way to go for a family.   If you are looking for a quieter location and room that is a little larger, you might want to go with a Moderate Resort.   Click HERE to learn more about resorts.   Price out both options and see what works best for your family!   Have fun planning your magical vacation!
