    Hi. Debating staying at either the Caribbean Beach resort or Animal Kingdom Lodge (with promotion so it's same price as moderate resort.) Concerned that AKL is one of furthest resorts and that bus ride will be difficult and long with 2 kids (6&9).

    Hi Emily! What a great choice to have to make, because it's a win-win no matter which you choose. It sounds like you're getting a fantastic price on the Animal Kingdom Lodge, which I must say I would jump at. It's an amazing deluxe resort. I wouldn't let the distance bother you. For example, it will take you 20 minutes to get to the Magic Kingdom, Epcot and the Hollywood Studios, compared to 15 minutes from the Caribbean Beach resort. You'll be a quick 15 minutes to the Animal Kingdom compared to 25 from the Caribbean Beach resort. Given the minor difference in travel times, I say go for the Animal Kingdom Lodge! Your kids will absolutely love seeing the animals throughout the resort!
