    Hi! My husband and I are going to Disney this summer for our first anniversary! We are staying at Caribbean Beach Resort. I was thinking about staying in the Aruba section. Is that close enough to the main food/pool area as well as skyliner?

    Hello there, Stephanie, and welcome to planDisney! 

    Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort has been calling my name ever since my last getaway there with my hubby. Fantastic choice! While there, definitely check out the chill vibes of the Resort hotel's multiple pools and beach areas and visit the laidback yet charming restaurant Sebastian's Bistro. I have dreams of its frozen POG juice (a mix of passion fruit, orange, and guava juice)...

    I usually stay in the Jamaica section because it's closer to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort's Disney Skyliner Station that's closer to EPCOT, one of my favorite theme parks. However, the Aruba section, in my opinion, is a very popular and great choice. First of all, some of its rooms are very close to Disney's Riviera Resort and its Skyliner Station, which is great if you want to get to Disney's Hollywood Studios even quicker. The south side of Aruba is no farther from the main pool and food area than Jamaica's rooms. The walk is not long at all, and you get fantastic views of the beach areas along the way.  

    This Resort hotel's location is perfect for two lovebirds celebrating a lifetime of happiness. The romantic Disney BoardWalk (where my then-fiancé and I took our engagement photos) is a Disney Skyliner ride away. As I mentioned, Disney's Riviera Resort is near the Aruba section, which is great for those late-night visits to Topolino's Terrace--Flavors of the Riviera

    AN EXTRA GEM: To commemorate your first anniversary (how exciting!), don't forget to grab a pair of complimentary "I'm Celebrating" buttons at the front desk of your Resort hotel or at Guest Services locations in the theme parks. Also, consider doing a fun photo session at one of the theme parks with a Capture Your Moment photographer. 

    Stephanie, congratulations to you and your husband on your upcoming milestone! If you have any other questions about your stay at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort or need more ideas for celebrating your anniversary, feel free to ask me here at planDisney

    Magic always,
