I put this as a response to another post, but there were no responses so I thought I should try it this way... I absolutely LOVE New Orleans and especially, the New Orleans square section in Disneyland...It was always my favorite "land" in Disneyland growing up. I stayed in the Port Orleans Riverside last November, in Magnolia Terrace, and was somewhat disappointed because it was the first time I'd ever stayed in a moderate and had had many stays at deluxe resorts (our favorites are Gf, BWI and AKL). Anyway, I do love the New Orleans theme, however, and what I didn't like about POR was the transportation (it seemed far out from everything and there were a lot of bus issues, such as full buses and having to wait for another). I thought the price of a deluxe was worth it for the transportation and proximity to parks alone (AKL is all buses but they've always been very fast and convenient by our experience). Beyond the transportation issue, the Magnolia Terrace building was not in that good of repair--there was a lot of visible wear and tear in the common areas and the beds were not very comfortable. The common areas were not kept up (there was a bench in front of our room which had a full ashtray and half full plastic cup full of what looked like red wine there during our entire stay--I didn't want to sit on the bench near the mess). We didn't see this kind of litter/ worn out issues around the lobby or food court, and from what I hear Magnolia Terrace is now getting a rehab--so this issue may be moot. But beyond that, it was also quite a walk to refill mugs, walk to jacuzzi, etc. I missed the robes and close proximity of resort stuff to room that I have had during the deluxe stays. However, if POFQ has just been rehabbed, and doesn't have the size that POR does, maybe we'd get a room that was kept up really well and there wouldn't be all the walking between our room and anything else in the resort? Also, it sounds like the buses first go to POFQ, so maybe the busses aren't such an issue? Since I find the New Orleans theme so appealing I'm considering trying POFQ, I just don't want to end up wishing I was at a deluxe again like what happened our last stay at POR. Our visits to WDW are so precious and I am hesitant to try another moderate when we have so many deluxes we love, but if there is a great moderate on site, it would be nice to have a wonderful theme and save some money in the process, if that is possible. Thanks so much for any opinions!!!!
