    You would think I'd know the drill.
    And I do, really...but it's been 5 years since we've been back!
    We've taken the DGD's to Disneyland since then, and have been on a Disney Cruise. so what's my problem?

    I need to know, is it worth it to try a new resort, or stick with something I know. We normally stay at a Value resort because we know we won't be spending much time in our room. Well, we all know it's because I'd rather stay in the parks than stay in a room. I AM on vacation ya know.

    So, I'm looking for folks who've stayed at Coronado Springs, Caribbean, or the Wilderness Cabins.

    Rick and I have camped at Ft. Wilderness many times, but we've always brought our own RV. When we can afford it, we stay at Port Orleans, we love them both. But I want to try something new, without screwing up the vacation.

    Help!!! I know you guys can help me.

    We've stayed at CS and CBR and while they were great resorts, when we went for a walk round WL we absolutely loved the look of the cabins so that's the one I'd go for.

    Fort Wilderness cabins you mean? Or Wilderness Lodge Villas (DVC villas)?

    I love new experiences so I'm going to tell you to stay at a new place! You won't screw up the vacation at all, because it's all Disney just from a different viewpoint, eh?


    Of all your choices, I'd say try Port Orleans? I've only ever visited there, but my brother stayed there with his family of five. It was a lovely place and they fit nicely into the hotel room.

    It's great that you are getting to go to WDW again!

    I really like trying new resorts. We TEND to do one week at a new resort and one week at one we love

    Coronado was strange to me. I actually loved the theming, the lake and the room was nice and large. The gratuity situation at the food court annoyed me but yet the food was the nicest of any court I'd been to at disney! Then the bus stop seemed weird.

    POR/POFQ are my favourites by far

    CBR we're going to try again. probably in one of the pirate rooms

    Thanks all....And Tink...yup the cabins at Ft. Wilderness...not the Lodge. Gads..I wish we COULD afford that place. I love it. I wish we could stay longer so we could resort hop, but that's totally out this trip. I'm just excited we are actually going! AND without Grandkids! Woooohooooo
    Ok...waiting on Johnie...she's going to HATE me after this.

    We've stayed at CSR twice and loved it. The theming is beautiful, the CMs are very helpful and friendly, the selection in the food court is amazing and the bus service is excellent.
    It can sometimes be very busy, as it is a convention resort, but you can plan around the busy times.
