    Riverside for me! The theming is excellent and you have the boat that takes you to Disney Springs. Free ride home after a night of partying!

    You can't really go wrong with any of them, honestly. I love Coronado and the rooms are all updated, which is great - but it's also still seeing a lot of construction on-site, so weigh your priorities accordingly. Riverside has the boat to Disney Springs, though, which is super nice and relaxing!

    Riverside! The theming is my favorite plus the boat ride to DS is fun.

    Riverside. Great theme, beautiful landscaping, boat to DS. I much prefer it to CSR and CBR.

    We stayed at Riverside in July & loved it. It was quiet, the grounds were beautiful & the boat ride to Disney Springs was so convient, we loved it!

    All three resorts are wonderful! I am a huge fan of Coronado Springs and the construction should be finished by October 2019. However, it isn't a sure thing by any means and delays for completion dates seem to be common. The safe bet is POR, with its beautiful grounds, walkway to POFQ and boat to DS. You also have the horse and carriage ride, surrey bike rentals and access to two themed pools (POR and POFQ).
    Personally, I would probably play it safe and choose a stay at POR. (However, if CSR is completed prior to your dates, you could always consider a switch - subject to availability, of course!).

    a couple of budget thoughts:
    One thing to watch for are discounts. If a really good discount was available at any one resort, I would be inclined toward that resort.
    Also, while all three are lovely, they are all large, sprawling resorts. If you want to be near the dining, check in, gift shops etc, a preferred room might be worth the extra $$$.
    SO, availability of a preferred room, coupled with the price, would be factors for me in deciding which resort to choose.

    Enjoy!!!

    You decision might be swayed based on if there is still construction going on at those resorts -they have the gondola contrustion, the new tower at CSR and the new DVC resort going in on CBR property. I think all will be done by your trip, which it might be nice for you to stay at CBR and try out the gondola access to HS and Epcot. Riverside is a safe bet and if you are a group of shoppers you might like the proximity to disney springs.

    Also depending upon the length of your trip you could do a split stay with a portion of your trip split between 2 resorts.

    My favorite is POR (with the caveat of the mansion section... I am not a fan of the Alligator Bayou section which if you paid for preferred is where you would be).

    Agree with others though, that it would really come down to construction status, and discounts for me.
