    Which Moderate resort is best for a 3 year old.

    My personal preference is Caribbean Beach (CBR). My daughter was 2 when we visited this resort and she loved to play in the sand there!  Our room was just steps away from the beach, and she spent a lot of time there.  The kids' meal in the food court was served in a pail and came with a little shovel, perfect for building sand castles.  She had a blast with that, and there were comfy lounge chairs and hammocks nearby for relaxing.  I enjoyed my morning coffee with a book on the beach, which was heaven for me.  There are also very nice playgrounds scattered throughout the property.  They are very age-appropriate for a 3-year-old and a playground on the beach is very fun. 

    We also enjoyed the pool at CBR.  If your child is daring they might enjoy the water slide (my daughter was unsure, though she did do it).  If he/she is less adventurous,  the waterfalls and fountains in the main pool, and in the wading pool for little ones will still provide a lot of fun in the water.

    3 is a very fun age to go to Disney.  Have a great trip!
