I'm trying to plan a trip to include my family (DH, me, DS8 and DS5) as well as my MIL and BIL. DH and I have been to WDW once before, but our two little boys, my MIL, and BIL have never been to WDW. I want this to be a special trip for all of us, and I want our resort to feel special as well. We're planning on going sometime in the first two weeks of December. I've read some reviews from people who felt the moderates are a little motelish, and yet others say they just love the moderate resorts because they're so nice. So, how do the moderates make you feel? Do you get that, "Ahh, this place is so nice. I love this resort and my room, and I'm really glad to be here."........OR........."Hmmmmm, the resort is okay, but my room and the buildings are kind of motelish."?
