    Hi moms! First time asking a question on here. We are planning our first trip to WDW and going in September this year. We have made reservations for the CBR but I keep looking at the Art of Animation resort. Can you help me make up my mind on which one?

    Hi Kristin!

    Both resorts are fantastic, but completely different.  Personally, I love Disney's Art of Animation Resort because of the character emphasis it has.  My kids love seeing their favorite Disney characters around the resort.  We are also pool junkies and Art of Animation has a wonderful pool that has is great for my 6 year old and my 3 year old because of the zero entry and the splash area.  

    Caribbean Beach Resort is also a great resort, but it is huge.  Depending on where your room is, it might be a lengthy walk to the Fuentes del Morro Pool, which is awesome and has a slide as well as a separate splash area for little kids.  The property is beautiful and is fun to explore.

    You can't go wrong with either resort.  Why not let your kids choose?  Show them some photos of each resort and see which one appeals to them the most.  For the record, I just polled my kids and they both picked Art of Animation.

    Have a magical day!
