Thread: Which is the best downtown disney resort?

  1. #1
    we're thinking about port orleans, old key west or saratoga springs. Has anyone stayed at all of these? which would be the nicest combination of close to downtown disney but really relaxing as well?

    I've stayed at SSR, OKW and visited my brother when he stayed at PO.

    I love OKW. It's my home DVC. It is the largest, in terms of lodging and grounds and the most laid back. It has a great main pool, a very large secondary pool and some really nice quiet pools.

    If I were to choose between those three, OKW would get it hands down each time.

    Would you say OKW was a peaceful resort, relatively speaking of course.

    Absolutely! It is laid back, quiet, lush and peaceful. I absolutely love returning there after a hectic day in the parks.

    ...and it`s probably the only resort where you can park your car right outside your accommodation which is a huge plus IMHO.

    That too! A very huge plus. You sometimes can do that with SSR too, though.

    It does sound lovely . The first year we went to WDW, we somehow got loss between TL and DTD , I think we took the wrong bus or missed the bus . We ended up at OKW and took their boat to DTD and walked to our hotel on Hotel Plaza Blvd . It looked like a lovely resort from what I remember . If I were ever able to buy resale for DVC, it would be OKW .

    I have stayed in both the french quarter and riverside of the port orleans resort. I enjoyed them both.

    The french quarter is much smaller than the riverside but that is not a bad thing. It is a very lovely resort. :p015:
