      You should Jamie. You don't even have to stay there to see it. Just tell the guard you are going to eat at the restaurant, and bam! free access to roam.

        The resort's a really handy though too... if you buy something at the park, you can leave it at the store and they'll send it to your room for you - I love that part!

          Hey Kelly - I did a destination wedding at the Polynesian Resort a few months ago . . . it was very nice! My son & I stayed at the all-star music resort which was nice b/c we were hardly ever in the room. I think you'll have a great time no matter where you guys stay!!!

            Hi Kelly!

            it's been about a month since someone last posted to this thread, but I'm hoping you're still keeping an eye on it.

            I had my honeymoon at Disneyworld in May, and had the best time of my life. I had never been before, so for eight days I got the chance to be 5 years old all over again.

            We stayed at the Port Orleans French Quarter Resort, and absolutely loved it. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is friendly and helpful, and best of all, it's right on the edge of a man-made river. Our room looked out over the water, and was only a minute's walk from the riverboat dock. I think what we liked most about the resort was how it was the perfect escape from the craziness that is Disneyworld. Don't get me wrong, I loved the craziness, it's why we went in the first place. But at the end of an eight hour day in the sun with so much activity, it was great to get away from the parks to a place that seemed completely removed from the rest of the property.

            Hope you have as great a time as we did! With Disney, you really can't go wrong no matter where you stay.

              Hey Kelly,

              So, I posted before that we are going to stay in an off-resort villa, but we've since changed our minds and will stay on the resort instead.

              We decided on the Coronado Springs Hotel. We wanted to stay inside the Moderate hotels as well, and from what I've read, it's one of the more "upscale" moderate resorts. One of the perks (that I've read so far), is that it's used often for conventions, so the bus line ups and meal waiting times are a lot less. And also because of this, there are less kids at the resort, so it's a little quieter .. apparently.

              It has it's own bus system - only from this resort, so there aren't a ton of stops.

              Some of the cons are that it's a really big resort and a lot of people felt like they had to walk way too much. They do have shuttles that run through the resort that you can take from your room to lobby. Not sure how often those run.

              Also, apparently the food is pretty average. I guess you can always eat somewhere else though.

              What were you looking at? Had you narrowed it down a little?

                Just chiming in -- someone else mentioned the Disney World Port Orleans French Quarter Hotel and I also HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend that place as well. Lovely property, great staff, not too many kids here either...just a fantastic place to stay and close to Downtown Disney and EPCOT.

                AVOID SWAN/DOLPHIN hotels like the plague. Dirty, out-dated decor, musty, shop-worn...they're horrid. Probably because they're not actually owned by Disney.

                  We are looking at the resort too!!

                  I got a quote for $1700 for 4 nights, 4 day park hopper pass, and the regular food pass.

                    Would you mind to explain how the extra dining package works?? I added it on the disney site and it added an extra $1000! Is that just for 30% off? It just doesn't seem to make sense to me.

                    Anyways, I'm still looking into the rates. To me, it seems like the least expensive option, yet still a nice property. Which other ones are you considering?

                      I was told by the Disney agent that the "regular" package is $39.99 per day per person and the "deluxe" package is $69.99 and she said they dont give out the rates for the "premium".

                      We were originally considering the Caribbean resort, but the agent recommended this one.

                      I have the Disney DVD and have to play it again to remind me of which one it is since there are so many.
