    My family of 4 are excited for our first Disney vacation the week of thanksgiving! I am looking for advice for a couple things: 1: CBR room location- Does it really matter where we stay on the resort 2: Are we able to use pools at other resorts?

    Hi Stephanie!

    I'm so excited to hear you'll be at Walt Disney World so soon!  What a great way to spend Thanksgiving!

    In my opinion, and especially if you've got kids in tow, and plan on using the food court and main pool area on a regular basis...location matters!  Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is massive, and operates an internal bus system to help people get around more efficiently.  With little ones relying on their own legs to get them from A to B, the walk to get breakfast in the morning could be rather long.  I would avoid staying in Barbados and Trinidad South. 

    I will say that my husband and I did stay in Trinidad South (pre-children) and really enjoyed our long walks.  Now, with kids, it wouldn't be quite as peaceful!

    Have a magical vacation!
