    Hi! We are booking a trip at the end of Nov/early Dec for our 5yr anniversary. Our kids will be 2.5 and 4.5 at the time but we are stumped with hotels! We can't decide if we should spend #300 extra on the Caribbean Beach or go with the All Star Resorts!

    Hi, Ashley!  For children this age, it probably really doesn't matter.  The pool area at Caribbean Beach is a bit of a selling point over the two resorts, but if you don't plan on spending that much time at the pool, it doesn't make a big difference.

    You'll find the room sizes are only slightly larger at Caribbean Beach, and both resorts have food courts.  There is also a sit down restaurant at Caribbean Beach.

    I think if I was going to splurge, check into the difference in cost for the family suites either at the brand new Art of Animation resort or at All Star Music.  These will give you an extra bathroom, a private bedroom for Mom and Dad, and a small kitchenette.

    Have an awesome vacation!
