Torn between value and moderate

Hello! My husband and I are taking our first trip without kids in our 15 year marriage this April! We are excited! We usually stay at moderates b/c we like going during free dining, and we get the regular dining plan that way. If I stayed at a value, I would want to upgrade to the regular dining plan, so that sort of cuts out a lot of the savings. We are potentially having some friends there with us at the same time who are probably going to want to stay at a value, but we don't have to stay at the same resort if we don't want to.

The other thing we like about moderates is that they seem a bit more peaceful. I visited my parents at ASMo once and watched a movie by the pool. There were so many kids that it was very loud. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind kids (I have 5), but might not want so many kids around on my anniversary trip when I am wanting to relax. It doesn't seem as loud at a moderate. It doesn't matter so much to me that I would never stay at a value though. I would be willing to.

The issue I am having in deciding is that my husband is leaning towards the moderate, which, like I said, I love. It will just raise the cost. For us to stay at a value with free dining (I am counting on a promotion coming up!), upgrading to the regular dining plan from the quick service one, tickets, and flights, it comes to just under $3000. At the moderate (we are thinking POFQ) it would be something like $3500. It is my anniversary trip, so my husband's thinking is that we should treat ourselves, I just like the $3000 pricetag better. It will probably be better for us to spend the money though, right?
