Port Orleans French Quarter

1. Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter ££

Topping our list is Port Orleans French quarter, a New Orleans inspired resort.  As the smallest resort on property, this Cajun themed hotel is great for all the family.  With a large pool and dragon waterslide (nicknamed Scales!), as well as fine dining and convenient access to EPCOT® and Disney Springs® via water taxi, this is our pick for the best moderate resort.

Caribbean Beach Resort

2. Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort £££

Coming in at a close second is the Caribbean Beach resort, the tropical paradise capturing the vibrant colours, landscaping and island vibes of the Caribbean.  Recently undergoing a major renovation, the hotel now features refurbished rooms and updated communal areas.  For sea lovers, why not try a stay in one of the Pirate themed rooms?  Kids can play in the pirate themed pools or relax in the sandy beaches (with hammocks for parents!). We personally recommend a Goombay Smash from the Banana Cabana bar, for the grown ups only!
