Moderate vs Value for Solo Trip

Hello Ya'll!

I am looking at booking a 9 day trip in May, and am starting to rethink my resort choice. I have stayed at the Values (Pop and ASMu) and really enjoyed them. But those trips have been short 4 day trips of drop and run. I did not spend any time at the resorts other than a few visits to the food courts.

This trip, I plan on spending some time at the pool and just relaxing, not being on the go all the time. I know the Values have secondary/smaller pools that are more quiet than the main/big pools. Are the Moderate pool areas worth the price of the upgrade? I won't spend much time in my room. So I am really looking at the other amenities of the Moderates may offer, such as spa services, TS restaurants, etc.

I have been purchasing Disney Gift Cards to pay for my trip, and have enough for the upgrade. That being said, should I use them or save the $$ and use what extra I have for gifts and/or a future inevitable trip?

Also, I live in the French Quarter of New Orleans, so am shying away from POR/FQ and looking at CS and CB. Does anyone have any preference between these two? (Also hoping for a % discount to be announced soon!)

Thanks for any advice! I love this board as it has helped me a great deal!
