    Are there any “islands” at the Caribbean Beach Resort that you recommend over others? Also, we will have our own car, and I’m wondering about transportation. In the past we have always used the buses, but I wonder if it would be faster to use our own car?

    Hello Holly and thanks for bringing your valued question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 
    I have some very fond memories of staying in the lush island surroundings of Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort with my own dear family and in our experience I'm happy to share we enjoyed the convenience of the preferred rooms which are located closer by the Fuentes del Morro Pool and Centre Town in the island villages of Martinique and Trinidad North.  
    Like you, we also had our own transportation and found that for Guest convenience parking lots are provided quite close-by to the Resort rooms. That being said, we always love utilising the wonderful and super reliable Resort Transportation and to be honest prefer a mix of taking the buses and driving ourselves around Disney property.  I find that for my family utilising Resort Transportation worked well for the most part, but for early morning breakfast reservations or later evening dining we preferred to drive our own car.  
    Plus you may not know that Disney has it's very own Car Care Center which provides Guests with all sorts of motoring assistance including auto repairs and even car rentals.  
    Wishing you a magical upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort!
