Another resort dilemma....
I am tentatively planning a quick trip to WDW in September (9/10-9/15) before my DH heads to Afghanistan. We would be a party of seven (7), DH, me, DD17, DS14, DS11 and nephew and great-nephew (4-turning 5 on the trip).
My family has been to Disney many times and usually stays for 8-10 nights. Since the kids will be back in school, this will probably be one of the shortest trips we have ever taken at only 4-5 nights. Our favorite resorts is the CR in a TPV room. If it was just the five of us, that's where we'd be!!
My DH does not like the buses so we will be renting a vehicle and using it for transportation to the parks. We will be using the 4 day Armed Forces Salute tickets.
Originally, I had thought to stay at Shades of Green to keep costs down. However, with this being my great-nephew's first trip (and birthday), I'd like to stay at a Disney resort. Then free dining came out for our dates so even paying rack rate for the rooms with a 2 day base ticket (and then upgrading to the AFS tickets) is a little cheaper than using the military discount on the room and paying for meals. We will upgrade the 6 adult tickets to the AFS tickets and then upgrade the child's ticket to a 4 day hopper through Disney.
I am trying to decide between 2 rooms at PORiverside or 2 rooms at CBR. Like I said, it is going to be a quick trip so not a lot of pool time, although as hot and humid as September is, we will definitely use the pool. I like the queen beds at PORiverside, but it is not a major deal to us. We would also be okay with double beds.
Which resort would you stay at and why?
