    Hello! I'm currently planning a trip next year and have been so busy researching hotels! What is a Spa Pool? is it the same as a hot tub or is it just a quieter area? I'm so excited, I think I like the Caribbean Beach resort best!

    Hi Erica!

    I'm so glad you found the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're happy to help with all of the details for your upcoming trip.

    I agree with you: Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is a hidden gem! The main pool area, where the spa pool is located, is one of the best at Walt Disney World! I love the zero-entry feature, and the pirate theme is just too fun (for adults too!). The spa pool is very much like a hot tub with jets. The water will likely not be heated as high as a traditional hot tub, but it should be plenty warm enough to help relax those tired park-touring muscles!

    If you are looking for a quieter area, the leisure pools located throughout the resort often offer a good spot to relax without too much activity. You'll find that the main pool area often hosts daily activities and games, while the leisure pools do not. This means you'll be able to find just what you want: a little excitement or a little downtime!

    In the evening, don't miss the Campfire Activities offered throughout your stay. You can even grab a stick and toast some marshmallows for S'mores. The fun night doesn't end there either! Relax and watch a Movie Under The Stars to top off your relaxing, and fun, evening!

    One great feature of Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort is the Disney Skyliner. This new addition really makes this resort stand out. Since it serves as a hub with direct connections to both EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios, you're just a few minutes away from either park. Plus, arriving at the parks via the air will give you a rare birds-eye view! I love seeing the spires of Batuu rising up above Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    While you're traveling the skies in the Disney Skyliner, keep an eye peeled for the Marvel, Disney, and Pixar characters which adorn the gondolas. I have trouble picking my favorite, but I think the Guardians of the Galaxy are among the best!

    I hope this helps! Don't hesitate to visit us again so that we can help you with any planning details!
