    My husband, 9yr old son and myself have booked 6n/7d at the All Star Movies Resort for Oct 2012. They now have some discounts and we can pay 146.00 more and stay at the Disney's Caribean Beach Resort. Is it worth it and is travel around easier?

    Hi Carrie!

    This is a great question.  If you think you want to spend some quality time at your resort hotel relaxing and using the services and amenities at your hotel, then it might make sense to upgrade.  You will also have more space in your room at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort.  However, if you aren't going to be spending much time at your hotel except to sleep then it may not be worth the added cost.  If it was me, I would probably do it only because the Caribbean Beach Resort has a fabulous pool and my children love spending time at the hotel pool.  Disney Value Resort pools do not have a water slide while Disney Moderate Resorts do.

    I hope this helps!  Good luck with your decision, and please write back with more questions!
