    Hi Dianne!

    Staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel is such a great way to immerse yourself in the magic of the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort rooms are smaller than the Cars Family Suites at Disney's Art of Animation Resort.  The rooms at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort are a nice size, but are like a classic hotel room with a room and bathroom.  Another thing to mention is that there is currently construction at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, and although you will probably not be in your room enough to notice, it is something to consider.  Construction noise will only be heard between 9 a.m. and dusk.  If you don't plan on spending much time in the room, then taking advantage of the dining offer would be a great choice!  

    A Cars Family Suite at Disney's Art of Animation Resort has a bedroom, a family room, two bathrooms, and a dining area.  The family room and dining area can both be converted into sleeping areas.  If you plan on spending more time together in the room, I think you will appreciate the amount of space in the Cars Family Suite.  Personally, I think the biggest advantage of staying in the Cars Family Suite is having the second bathroom--especially when everyone is getting ready to go to Extra Magic Hours early in the morning!  

    No matter where you choose to stay, I think you will have an absolutely magical time at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
