    This is our first time at WDW celebrating my son's 5th bday, I booked a standard room at Art of Animation before the spring sale came out! And noticed that the Pirate Room at Caribbean Resort is on sale for the same price! Which one would you recommend?

    I can imagine precisely the type of magical memories you will be creating for your son's fifth birthday, Tianna.  He's a lucky little guy!  You do have a tough decision at hand.  The pirate rooms at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort are perfect for the pint-sized swashbucklers among us.  Yet still, Disney's brand new Art of Animation Resort, too, is extraordinarily magical.  I will say, though, that a five-year-old boy would probably be more in awe of the pirate room than he would the Little Mermaid room at Art of Animation.  If it were me, I think I'd be swayed to switch my reservation.  And if you attempt to do just that and find that there isn't availability in a pirate room, not to worry; your son will be able to feast his eyes and imagination on the colorful and creative surroundings throughout Art of Animation.  Good luck!

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
