    ....................................a bar.
    What l am looking for is
    A) Nobody to judge me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    What l would be looking for is a quite a nice hotel that has a bar,where you could have a tipple of an evening.
    And maybe be able to walk to a couple of good restaurants.

    Or should l just stick with the Gaylord Palms.

    OR

    For the real curve ball.................................................. Whast moderate hotels at WDW have a bar.

    Totally agree, that's what I like to do too :) so no judging from me.

    All the moderates have bars from what I remember :yes: Port orleans riverside also has piano bob :) and french quarter has elliot dyson playing jazz.

    Now, none of the restaurants at the moderates have wowed me. They may be "OK" for what you want, and they'd certainly be within staggering distance ;) but you have to go for a deluxe to have really nice bars + restaurants in my experience. The wilderness lodge gets you a great bar + small stagger to the excellent artist point. Animal kingdom lodge likewise really nice bar + jiko. Grand floridian has lots of restaurants and a lovely bar. etc.

    The Gaylord palms would certainly give you what you need! more on the lines of a deluxe than a moderate. Nice proper inside hotel bars and good restaurants too.

    Disney resorts for 2 days. Well it depends if you have your own transport. If you DO then no, I'd stay with your gaylord palms plan :yes: WE don't drive when we're there so staying onsite gives us the option of disney transport to go to any number of restaurants etc and we just pop offsite with a taxi when we fancy it.

    All of the Disney resorts, value, moderate, deluxe have at least a pool bar. And they are normally open till at least midnight.

    I must admit, I'm not a fan of pool bars :( so the moderates at least have indoor bars which I prefer :yes:
