OP, my choices:
1.AKL but only with a savanna view.
2.CSR has queen beds and unless it's changed, CBR and POP both have doubles.

do the mod resorts have fridges?

What are other reasons I may want to upgrade during this time? I need to be convinced! I'm not overly thrilled about POP.

Thank you!
As an AP holder I go to WDW 4-6 times a year. Since my husband is not as big a WDW fan as I am, alot of those trips are solo (he'll go only once or twice a year). Anyway, the majority of my trips (even my solo trips) have been to the moderates, with CSR and POFQ being my favorites. I am just not a fan of the values (too loud, busy, decor too over the top, and the bus stops are usually among the last coming out of the parks at night). I have stayed at several deluxes, but unless I get a really good discount, have a hard time justifying their prices. The moderates just seem to fit me. The reasons:

bigger rooms, queen size beds, ceiling fans, coffee makers, TS restaurant on site (except at POFQ) in case I don't feel like going out one night, covered bus stops with nice benches to sit on, more soft landscaping (trees and shrubs), bus stops usually closer coming out of the parks at night, hot tubs, pool slides, nicer pools, and just the general feel of the moderates are more relaxing.

I upgraded our ressie to Animal Kingdom Lodge.

I sure hope it is worth it!
I've always thought a stay at AKL during Christmas would be incredible for just the reasons you mentioned. It seems like it has the resort without the most to do. I don't think you'll regret it.
