Coronado Springs would definitely be your best bet for an adults-only trip

Just go with the mod that has the theme that appeals best to you. Some people like the Mexican vibe and some people don't. Just like the OP doesn't find the POR vibe to be to her taste. Just like I don't want to spend my Disney vacation at a Starwood hotel. Different strokes for different folks.

We do adult-only trips all the time, now that our kids have kids of their own. But we still enjoy the mods. (Although we have stayed deluxe for special occasions). We tend to pick a different one each trip, just for the sake of variety.

Thanks for all the info. We priced out Swan & Dolphin, and basically they are only slightly cheaper than the deluxes with a 30% discount. So, if we are going to spend that kind of money we'd rather just throw in a couple hundred dollars more and stay at an actual WDW resort.

I'll look into Coronado Springs. Still discussing this with DH to figure out how much we are committed to saving extra cash on the hotel stay this time. We do really love the deluxe resorts, and this may be our only trip to WDW (or vacation) for the entire year, so it might be worthwhile to just go for the hotel we really want.

Could you check into renting dvc points? We are doing that this time and its comparative to moderate pricing. Especially if you just need a studio.

For a moderate I would choose POFQ and for deluxe I would choose the Poly,

Have done both and enjoyed each.

DH and I stayed at POFQ on our honeymoon and liked it very much. It's significantly smaller than the other moderates. We had a room that faced the Sassagoula River, so it was very quiet, but at the same time it was still close to the main building. The decor is very pretty and I did not find it to be childish at all.
