    Thinking Dec 17 -21 for Christmas gift for our girls ages 14 & 8. A moderate resort fits our budget for this trip. Which moderate has more of a Christmas feel and less hassel w/ transportation. Beach Club has spoiled us on rescent trips! TY 4 help!

    Hi Rebecca! Your resort choice will depend on your preference for location and theming. Commuting time will vary. However, I have personally never spent more than thirty minutes traveling between any of the moderate resorts and any of the theme parks. Located in the Epcot area, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is the largest Moderate Resort on Disney property. It features distinct villages named after Caribbean Islands. Many rooms are decorated in a subtle Finding-Nemo theme while a limited-quantity are Pirate-themed. The latter feature pirate-ship beds and swashbuckling decor. Another option is Disney's Coronado Springs Resort (CSR). It is located near Disney's Animal Kingdom. CSR's architectural theming is reminiscent of colonial Mexico and the American Southwest. Guest rooms are divided into three districts, Casitas, Ranchos, and Cabanas. Casitas are the closest to the main building. The Cabins at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort are pleasantly situated in a shady forest on Bay Lake near Magic Kingdom. These Cabins provide all the comforts of home and the best the outdoors have to offer. They feature a rustic American Frontier architectural theming. If your family enjoys the outdoors these Cabins are a great option. Near Downtown Disney you'll find Disney's Port Orleans Resort. It's comprised of sister resorts Port Orleans Riverside (POR) and Port Orleans French Quarter (PORFQ). Some POR rooms are housed in plantation-style mansions on Magnolia Bend while those located in Alligator Bayou feature rustically decorated Cajun-style accommodations. Accommodations at PORFQ are themed after the famed New Orleans French Quarter. I would recommend PORFQ for its more compact layout, exceptionally themed pool, and proximity to Downtown Disney.
