    Great Panel, you are all so helpful! We are a family of four traveling to Disney for the first time in Feb. 2010. We will have a 3yrold and a 1yrold and are considering the Caribbean Beach Resort. Which rooms should we request and why? Family Friendly?

    Hi Melissa,

    The Caribbean Beach Resort is my top pick in the moderate category for a family.  I recently got to tour a newly-renovated "Pirate Room" at the Caribbean Beach Resort and was very impressed by the attention to detail!  The beds were made to look like ships, and the curtains looked like flags with a giant "jolly roger".  My kids would be in heaven!  The balance of the rooms at the resort have been refurbished into "Nemo-themed" rooms, (based on the Disney Film "Finding Nemo").  I haven't had an opportunity to see these first hand, but my Disney mom friends who have tell me they are absolutely adorable.  The Nemo rooms are considered standard, and there is a slight surcharge for the Pirate-themed rooms. If you'd like a sneak peak of the rooms, I recommend visiting the independent website, www.allears.net .  Click on "accommodations" from the home page, and scroll down the left margin until you find the resort and room-type you are interested in.  These photos often help us decide where to stay as well.   If your kids  like to swim, they'll love Caribbean Beach.  There are a total of 9 pools, including an unbelievable pirate-ship pool with slides, water canons and waterfalls.  Overall, I think it's a fantastic choice for families.  The common areas are well-themed, and access to bust transportation is convenient.

    Have a wonderful trip!
