    We are looking at booking Caribbean beach however would only want a refurbed mermaid room. If we book a water view 5th sleeper will that guarantee the refurb version?

    Welcome to planDisney, Claire! I'm excited to see that you're planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort at my favorite time of year: the holiday season. The Theme Parks and Disney Resorts Collection Hotels get sprinkled with an extra layer of pixie dust during the festive season, so I know you're going to have an extra magical time on your upcoming vacation.

    Let's talk Little Mermaid rooms at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort! I'm sure you saw the pictures of the gorgeous refurbishment happening to what used to be the Pirates of the Caribbean-themed rooms in the Trinidad section of the Resort. The beautiful overhauled rooms will include new artwork, fresh bright decor, and a 5th sleeper bed, which is a great feature to have when you're traveling with a bigger group. These rooms are currently under construction and set to debut sometime in 2023, but those are all the details we have to share right now. When they were available for booking, the Pirates-themed rooms were their own room category, meaning you booked those rooms specifically, so it's possible that something similar may happen with the new Little Mermaid rooms. 

    If you're looking to get the ball rolling on your trip, I would start by booking the Resort Hotel and room type that you'd be happy with if the Little Mermaid rooms aren't available at the time of your stay. If they do become available, you can switch over to that room category! Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more information because it will be the first place you'll hear about any breaking news, like the debut date for these fin-tastic new rooms.

    Have a magical day, Claire!
