Port Orleans would be my choice for sure! Convenient to your plans and full of Disney magic! You can take the boat to Downtown Disney for your daughter's performance, relax at the wonderfully themed resort and take part in resort activities like evening outdoor movies.

I would say stay on site! It will be so much more convenient but in addition the service at Disney is just outstanding.

Definately POR, for convenience. Plus, the rooms are gorgeous and spacious (there was only 2 of us though!) and the cast members are so lovely.

POR hands down! It's beautiful. The landscaping is lovely, we enjoy strolling along the river path. Pretty pool area. Boat to DTD, evening entertainment in the lounge, family themed. Easy to get to the parks using Disney transportation. No need for car rental, free airport service.
