Best Moderate for Magic Kingdom?

Is there such a thing? My sister and I are taking our niece in November. She wants to stay at the Contemporary since we know we'll be spending lots of time in MK. I'm having a hard time with the expense. Are there any Moderates that have a quick trip to MK?

Wilderness Lodge would be a lot of fun and is a boat ride from MK

It is classified as deluxe but cost wise falls between moderate and the other deluxes such as Contemporary

Port Orleans Riverside is a great moderate and it is only a 15 min bus ride away from MK. Not sure of the price of the royal rooms, but I'm sure your niece would love it. Check it out. You might like it

Looks like PORiverside is closest, it has a nice pool area, too. PO French Quester is the sister resort, and shares busses, so the bus ride would be the same from either. No moderate is on the monorail line, but the deluxes are anywhere from $400 to $600 a night. It is convenient at the end of the night to just walk past all those people in the bus line and get to the Contemporary without the hassle of waiting for a bus, but at what expense? Your call.

Port Orleans is a great resort but your not on the monorail system but you pay a lot of money for that benefit. I love to stay at the poly but I just can justify the expense.
