We are going to WDW for a much needed getaway that won't break the bank. We want a king room, so that leaves value & deluxe resorts out. We really want to veg out on non-park days. I am concerned as my DH may have issues walking and is a huge mosquito magnet with all the lakes & rivers around.
Leaning toward PO-Riverside or Coronado. Something tells me there will be MANY more kids at Carib Bch so that's OUT. I know many families who lovvvve Carib Bch.
HELP PLEASE.... What is your favorite moderate pool & resort & WHY?

At either POR or Coronado you'll find kids, after all you're at WDW. The main pools will both have lots of kids at them in the afternoons/evenings. You may find that using one of the quiet pools at those resorts is more adult friendly (though no pool bar). Of the two though, I'd say Coronado Springs feels more adult to me.
Well I know you didn't say POFQ but that to me is perfect for adults only it is small but unique. And as far as mosquito am too am a magnet and I have never ever had an issue at Disney which I think is totally strange but I don't and hopefully it will stay that way.
So good luck with your trip and picking your resort.
I've stayed at both Port Orleans (Riverside, not FQ) and Coronado Springs, and really liked both of them (I'm a child-free adult, so all of my WDW trips are adults only). Personally, I don't think you can go wrong with either one. But of the two, Coronado really felt more adult. And was far quieter. The pool is also lovely.
And yes, it's big. But so are all on site properties. But the bus service is great.
I think Port Orleans Riverside would be the best moderate resort for you. It's quiet and there are beautiful walking paths along with nice pools. I found Coronado Springs to have a lot more bugs than any other Disney resort that I've stayed at.
Unless your DH has serious enough mobility issues that he needs a walk-in shower, I doubt an accessible room is necessary. There aren't a great many, so trying to book one could be more challenging. Should he decide renting a scooter is advisable, one will fit in any Disney room although more snugly in some Value rooms than in Moderate or Deluxe ones.
You can request various bathroom mobility aids from housekeeping if needed. There are portable rails for the toilet, and shower seats are available.
