Bright largest moderate rooms.

Done some number crunching and seems what we spent last year is the same as if wed be on the dining plan. We were offsite so going to give on a go. Looking at the YC/BC but if funds dont permit whats the largest Moderate rooms on property? What are the lightest feel as in terms of decor? I looked at FC and like it as a resort but not sure on the decor? I know some people say its only a room to sleep in but I wont treat it as that myself. Dont really want dark furniture etc. Probably sounds strange to some.

Moderates have rather dark rooms

in terms of decor and brightness, I'd probably have a look at the Grand Destino Tower at CSR, upper levels to take advantage of more light
but the price might hurt compared to other moderates

what you could also have a look into, is Old Key West, for a Studio
they are the largest "standard" rooms on property, the decor is rather light and bright, and the property is very nice
you can get it with free DDP and usually with a 30% discount on top of free DDP (from past history) and it's considered a Deluxe resort.

The Gran Destino tower rooms at Coronado Springs are larger than any other moderate rooms weve stayed in at Riversiide (both parts) & French Quarter - havent been to Caribbean Beach yet, though. The room was very spacious, well lit and bright - but the corridors are full-on orange! Maybe have a search for some photos online?

How did you find the windows as an odd shape?

The corner rooms in the traditional Moderates at CBR and both Port Orleans (and maybe CSR, cant remember) have TWO windows if they are corner rooms. It makes a big difference to how light the rooms are.

The window in our room was rectangular - I think the arched windows are those in the top level restaurants and club level lounge. No balcony, but our room on the 4th floor was lovely and light, especially if you drew back the net curtains as well. The Tower rooms are well appointed with lots of USB charging points and sockets though it doesnt feel Disneyfied and they need to sort out the check in system. It took ages as all guests for the other 3 areas also check in at the tower while the former check in area remains empty. The lifts (elevators) are amazing - you preselect the floor you want and then youre directed to a specific lift which provides a non-stop ride.

Moderate rooms are pretty much the same, with open walkways past your windows. So the problem is you have to chose between light or privacy. With the blinds open, the rooms feel brighter, but everyone walking past can see right in.

You have the towers at CSR, but you pay a premium and when I was pricing it was cheaper to go deluxe which has the upgraded dining plan.

Most of the moderates have been refurbished so have a brighter decor which does help. It really depends on how much time you will be spending in the room.
