    Is it a long walk from Reception to the pirate rooms in Trinidad in the Caribbean Beach Resort? Will I have to take my suitcase myself or will there be assistance? I am a senior.

    Hi, Kathryn!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    You are going to love the laid-back island vibe at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort.  "Arrr" you ready to drift off to sleep in your very own pirate ship bed?  We stayed in one of the pirate rooms at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort the first time we brought our children to the Walt Disney World Resort.  Our entire family loved the fun theming of our pirate room.  Although the pirate rooms are a rather lengthy walk from the front desk, shops, and dining locations of Old Port Royale, I don't think this will make you "treasure" your stay at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort any less.

    You need not worry about transporting your own luggage to your room.  The Cast Members in Bell Services would be happy to assist you with this.  In addition to the convenient transportation options available to take you between your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel and the theme parks, water parks, and Disney Springs, some of the larger resort hotels, like Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, also offer an intra-resort shuttle.  If you and your pirate crew members don't feel like walking from one area of the resort to another, just hop aboard the intra-resort shuttle that travels from place to place within the resort.

    If you are concerned about the amount of walking that a Walt Disney World Resort vacation entails, you could consider renting an Electric Conveyance Vehicle (ECV), also known as a scooter.  ECVs are available to rent on a first-come, first-served basis at the theme parks.  The ECV link I have provided here also has a list of rental companies that can deliver an ECV to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel for you to use during your entire stay.  This is especially helpful for navigating the larger resort hotels.  I have family members who regularly rent an ECV when they visit the Walt Disney World Resort.  They have found that it really helps them to be able to experience all that the Most Magical Place on Earth has to offer.  

    I hope you enjoy your stay at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort!  Have a magical day!
