Which would be better for in-laws? French Quarter or Coronado Springs?

My in-laws are coming. I am so excited! I really love them They decided last minute to join us in Feb. They are booking tomorrow and they have never been to Disney. They want to keep the cost low but not a value so they are comfortable with a moderate. They asked for my help deciding. I narrowed it down to the French Quarter due to its small size and Coronado Springs. Which would be better for two 64 year old first timers? They plan on two days only at the park... Help needed before morning please... Thank you!!!

I would say POFQ for the compact size. It also gives them the boat toDTD option.

My vote is for POFQ as well for the reasons the PP mentioned. It's a lovely, compact resort. CSR is quite vast.

I would choose POFQ . It is a great size not too big and it has the boat to DD which is great. We just stayed at CSR for one night at the end of our trip in Nov.and we were extremely disappointed in the resort, would never stay there again!

I'm late to the thread, but wanted to add our experience. My parents decided to join us for marathon weekend next month. They're about the same age as your in-laws, two park days, and want to keep cost low but no value resort. We recommended POFQ and they booked it! Same reasons other posters mentioned. I think the small size and quaint theming of the resort will be a good fit for them. We've stayed at CSR in the past - they have too. We liked CSR, but it's relatively spread out and has more of a convention feel, in my opinion.

So I vote for POFQ, too - have a great trip!

I'd book either POFQ or Por, depending which has the better price. Both are great resorts.
