  • Disney's Port Orleans Resort (Lake Buena Vista; tel. 407/934-7639 or 407/934-5000): Here's a good value by Disney standards. It has dual Southern charm in its French Quarter and Riverside areas, and the pool has a water slide curving from the mouth of a colorful dragon.
  • Hilton in the Walt Disney World Resort (Lake Buena Vista; tel. 407/827-4000): It's the only official resort on Hotel Plaza Boulevard to offer Disney's Extra Magic Hour option. Other pluses include a huge variety of services, two pools, and spacious junior suites. And it has a great location next to Downtown Disney.
  • Staybridge Suites Lake Buena Vista (Lake Buena Vista; tel. 800/866-4549 or 407/238-0777): Close to the action of Downtown Disney and the theme parks, this resort's one- and two-bedroom suites have full kitchens and are larger and more comfortable than most of the competition. And breakfast is on the resort -- a complimentary buffet of hot and cold items is set out daily so you don't have to deal with the hassle of dining elsewhere.
  • Lake Buena Vista Resort Village & Spa (Lake Buena Vista; tel. 866/401-2699 or 407/597-0214): Off the beaten path yet close to Disney, this upscale resort's oversized two-, three-, and four-bedroom suites have full kitchens, washers and dryers, and plasma TVs. A 7,500-square-foot pirate-themed pool will keep the kids entertained, while the full-service spa ensures the adults will remain relaxed.
