And, did it ever! Wow! Dueling resorts! Razor-close finish! Between the two Orleans resorts, almost 75% of your vote? 75%?! What a day!
Actually, this year, at first, I thought it wasn’t going to be all that close. French Quarter jumped out to an early, and quite large, lead.
Then, Riverside came roaring back. From that point on, the “battle” became a spectacle … a metaphorical horse race!
In the end, what it really became was a repeat … of sorts. How so?
Some of you folks might not remember this, but this “competition” was won by Port Orleans – French Quarter “way” back in 2013.
Yesterday’s rival – its sister down the river – actually dethroned it last year. Port Orleans – Riverside won your favor in 2014.
Well, if there’s justice in rematches, Walt Disney World’s homage to the Big Easy’s “Old Square” has seen that “wrong” get “righted”. By the slimmest of margins, French Quarter is the 2015 readers’ choice!
What do I think about the result? I think you already know.
I still say that Coronado is way too under-appreciated. But, that’s OK. It only adds up to more room “at the inn” for the All in WDW family to enjoy!
How about you? Are you thrilled? I think so …
“We have stayed at French Quarter twice and Riverside once. Both are beautiful, and I might even like the Riverside theme better. However, the size and one bus stop at French Quarter wins it for me. However, you can’t go wrong with either.”
“I love French Quarter the best. The size is perfect. The theme is so relaxed. The river-view rooms are perfect.”
“We love how small French Quarter is … yet, the amenities are not decreased. It’s even the first bus stop. And, it’s an easy walk to Riverside to share in their table service and see Yehaa Bob. It’s easy to get a boat ride to Downtown Disney.”
Great comments, all! Great resorts, both halves of the “Port”. Great competitions, my friends! Port Orleans – French Quarter is the 2015 All in WDW Readers’ Favorite WDW Moderate Resort!
You see, my friends? Even I can appreciate our Moderate “champ”!
