We have stayed at both Caribbean and PORFQ. Both were very nice, but to be honest, CB is a bit big, we had a long walk to the themed pool and food court. You can't beat PORFQ in my opinion.
We really liked POFQ with my 2 year old! It was the perfect size resort for traveling with a small child. THe rooms were really nice and I loved the look of the 'street's. The food court was good and the pool was the perfect size for the resort.
I really fell in love with CSR! I never thought twice about it but ended up booking there last March. The grounds are beautiful. The rooms will all be completly re-furbed by the Fall and have queen sized beds! The pool area is amazing!! Just amazing!! We even liked the PepperMarket. Thought it was fresh and huge portions! I just can't say enough nice things about CSR!
Im in the same situation at the moment. I cant choose! I loved Coronado last year, absolutely loved it. It is large but we had an ideal spot between the main pool and the main building. I want to try another mod next year but my problem with P.O is that it is too far from my favourite parks - AK and HS. I didnt like CBR a lot so I am lost as to what to choose. Yikes!
You can always stay at Coronado again. I so loved the Pepper Market....yum the nachos were so delicious, in fact, I ate them several times.
I know how that is, I definitely try different ones too. The Port Orleans resorts are closer to DTD, and do allow for a nice boat ride. But in the big scheme of things, one is not really too far from any of the parks.
Another vote for POR, we stayed there in 2007 in one of the Mansion building (Oak Manor) it was lovely, the landscape is beautiful. We would definitely recommend this resort.
We only caught a portion of his show but it was very funny! The lounge was packed and he had most everyone involved. Good stuff!Originally Posted by catrancher, post: 144080
I would stay at the POR again. The grounds were beautiful and it made for a pleasant, although quite hot, bike ride. I was impressed with the selection of food at the food court. We got a very good steak salad. We had a corner room on the waterway. The rooms could stand a refurbish (paint, carpet, etc...also we could hear the toilet flush from either the room next door or above) but it was a good size and even included a small fridge and coffee maker. The only other thing we noticed was there were no towels at our quiet pool. I had to go looking for a castmember in order to get some towels. We were there for two hours and still no one ever brought a replenishment for the pool area. The castmembers were very nice here and we were even able to check into our room at 11am!!! I loved that.
