Dont forget the queen beds well except CBR

We also got back from Coronado Springs yesterday and it is a wonderful place! Very peaceful and quiet. If you want OTT Disney this is not a resort for you. If you want wonderful Disney service, little Disney touches, a peaceful picturesque place to stay, this is your place. The pool area is awesome and the bus service is spectacular. My kids are 10 and 6 and they loved it.

Im staying POR for the first time in Dec and we have a family trip planned next Nov to stay in the Royal rooms (worth a splurge even once ) I say go for POR! The grounds look amazing! I like the look of this resort compared to the values. The Mods just seem more resort-like than values. I agree with a PP Id rather skip a trip than stay value!

I'll put my in my two cents for POR! We have only been to Disney World once and it was at POR. We were planing at staying at a value then the free dining came out and we did not want a whole week of CS so we went with a mod. We were there the last week of AUG of this year and had no issues with the busses at all. Yee Haa Bob alone was worth the price.

My only regret was that while we stayed at POR we didn't really "stay" at POR we left first in morning and came back after the parks were closed. It's a good thing TL, BB and AKL closes early or we would have not even saw POR at all. Mind you even on those three days we we went to DTD for the evening.

This year we are going for two weeks one week at POP so we can do our "out all day week", and one week at POR so we can enjoy and relax at the resort with some trips to BB, TL, DQ and the odd trip to a park.

Uh...had a slight weapons malfunction. But, uh, everything's perfectly all right now. We're fine. We're all fine here...now...thank you. How are you? *wince*

Just another vote for POR. Kids your age will love the boat to DTD, the feel of POR is great, has the quiet pools you liked about CBR plus two themed pools because you can use the one at POFQ also. Not sure when all of the queen beds will be in at POR but with kids your age sharing a bed, that would be a moderate over value vote for me, for sure. Plus, there's the trundle bed option so they wouldn't have to share. And, the curtain closing off a changing aree outside the bathroom is great! Good luck!

We like to stay at POR for the trundle--we have two kids who drive us crazy if they have to sleep together, even at WDW! The grounds are beautiful and IMHO they have the best CS in the World at Riverside Mill. Breakfasts are fresh and delicious and quick. There are activities for the kids on the weekends, if I remember correctly, or maybe that was just the only time we wandered around. It's also fun to take a boat ride to DTD or a surrey ride around the resort.
