    My mom and I are planning a trip for September. We are thinking of staying at Caribbean Beach, but it seems like only the pirate rooms in Trinidad are available right now. Is the walk to the lobby as far as people say it is?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Elizabeth. We are just thrilled to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation this Fall! How very exciting.

     My family and I love Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. It's one of our favorites from the Disney Resorts Collection! We appreciate the laid-back vibe and the beautiful island scenery. We've stayed at this unique Disney Resort hotel quite a few times and I can tell you that it's footprint is large. Because of it's size, getting from one resort location to another can require a lot of walking. Depending on where your room is located in Trinidad, a walk to Old Port Royale could take 10-15 minutes. If your heart is set on Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, though, don't let that walk deter you! For one, the walk to Old Port Royale is lovely. Too, Trinidad has it's own conveniently located bus stop where you can catch a bus to the theme parks, Disney Springs, and even Old Port Royale!

     While my sons would appreciate every incredibly themed detail in the Pirate Rooms at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, I'm not sure that's where my mom would be happiest for a Mother/Daughter Disney vacation. If the Pirate Rooms are the only available option at this Disney Resort hotel, I would consider other locations. Have you taken a look at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort? This Disney Resort hotel has been newly re-imagined and features beautiful rooms and centralized amenities. It might just fit the bill for your upcoming visit!

     When I'm choosing a Disney Resort hotel for my family's next Walt Disney World Resort vacation, I like to use the online comparison tool. After you've added one vacation package offer to your online cart, you'll see that you have the option to add up to two additional offers so that you can view them side by side! This handy tool may help you in your decision-making process. 

     I hope this was helpful, Elizabeth. Please let us know if you have any other questions about the vacation you're planning! We'd love to help you plan a magical stay.
