    Hello, Which resort is more family friendly, Caribbean Beach or Coronado Springs? Thank you

    Hi, Lisamarie!  I think it really depends on your family, but if I had to choose, I might be more inclined to say Caribbean Beach Resort.  My kids love the pool area there, with the life sized pirate ship splash area, and even though both resorts are really large, the girls always seem to do better getting around Caribbean Beach without complaining too much about the walk from one place to another.

    Coronado Springs is an amazing resort, and the pool area there has an ancient Mayan temple theme.  The resort is sprawling, so where Caribbean Beach has a lot of buildings in a large area, there's more walking with less in between at Coronado.  Coronado Springs also has a convention center, so there may be a more business type crowd there, depending on what's going on when you go.

    Both have great choices when it comes to finding something to eat, and you'll find arcades at every resort.  Caribbean Beach has a preferred section of Pirate themed rooms, in case that's something that would sway you one way or another.

    I don't think you can go wrong with either resort, but my kids give Caribbean Beach the slight edge when it comes to family friendly and fun!
