Best Quiet Resort & Room Requests

Which Resort would you suggest to a senior couple that is making their first trip to Walt Disney World? What makes that one your choice? In addition to staying in that resort, would you suggest any specific room request for a quiet and relaxing vacation?

I think POFQ is really quiet - at least all the times we have been there. A room with a river view in Bldgs 1, 6 or 7 would be my best recommendation. Very relaxed overlooking the river. Some pics from our trip in April 2012 - we had a river view room on the first floor in Bldg 1.

Hi,

My recommendation is the Animal Kingdom Lodge Arusha view. Sitting on your portch overlooking the savanna watching the animals is just SOOO restful!

I agree with Jeff.... PO seems to be the place to go if you want to relax and have a nice quiet time.

I would say POR or FQ. I don't know. SSR was pretty quiet too. Maybe it is the time of year that we travel though. We try to go while school is IN. Do they like to relax on nice boat rides? I like the Sassagoula! I find that boat ride relaxing and refreshing. And POR for that slow lazy relaxing feel. Magnolia Bend rooms, it was quieter in Oak Manor than it was in Alligator Bayou.

You can probably find it more quiet at the mods and deluxe. Not so much with the values. I say follow their personality. And if their budget is going to allow them a deluxe, do an MK view so they can watch the fireworks from the room, and not have to deal with the crowds.

I have always found ssr to be very quiet there does not seem to be as many kids staying there, but it is alot of bus riding and walking which may not be the best for an older couple. Last time we stayed at akl for a couple of days and even though there seemed to be alot of kids it was very quiet especially at night. Last time i stayed at pofq it was the dixie landing and was very quiet and beautiful

I'm with Jeff...POFQ is fantastic. Its quaint and quiet, and it only has one bus stop. I recommend staying in Bldg 3. Its a short walk to the bus stop and the main bldg, but its away from the pool and super quiet!

I'll go in a different direction, and say one of the Epcot resorts, like the Yacht Club.

Sure, my family adores Stormalong Bay, the enormous pool complex. But there's also a quiet pool, which (at the more child-centered adjoinging Beach Club at least) is virtually child-free.

And it's just steps away from the shops and restaurants of Epcot. And a lovely boat ride away from Hollywood Studios.

So you have very easy access to two parks. Neither has the in-your-face childish theming of some of the other resorts.

You can't go wrong at either Port Orleans French Quarter or Riverside. Both are very tranquil, relaxing resorts. If you were interested in deluxe, we've stayed at both the Yacht Club and Wilderness Lodge. At WL, we stayed in the "villas" section that was extremely quiet. Those are great choices too! In 2011, we stayed in Bldg 6 on the second floor at PO Fr Qrtr. This was beautiful overlooking the river. So peaceful, Jeff's pics are great and give you a good idea of what that resort looks like. It's lovely.

Poppet - Wilderness Lodge Villas were fantastic as far as peaceful and quiet. A great option for people that want to feel removed from the hustle and bustle of it all.

Aplogies for the ancient(ish) thread bump but i would say try CSR . WE have stayed there several times and found it to be pretty relaxed and quiet.Stayed in both the Casita's section and the Rancho's but not the Cabana's.
Found the Rancho's section to be lovely and quiet and in all honesty not that far from the reception or bus stops.Possibly the stigma of it being a "convention" hotel keeps a certain amount of visitors away from it.
