I love the moderates if you plan on spending time there. I love the sprawling grounds of Port Orleans Riverside, very picturesque. There is also a boat that leaves Riverside and French Quarter arriving at Downtown Disney which I am a big fan of. The moderates, in my opinion, are not as bustling as the values either, less noise for lack of a better word.
I would have to agree with the others, if you don’t plan on a lot of pool time, or supplementing your trip with other activities, like renting a boat or a surrey bike, or taking a horse-drawn carriage ride (which are available at some of the moderates), it might be better to save money at the values, especially if you plan on spending all of your time at the parks and sleeping.
