    Planning a June 2011 trip to Disney World. 6 adults, 4 children (14,10,6,1). I am torn between booking CBR or CSR in moderate resort category. Please provide your recommendation? Staying 6 nights. Thanks

    Hi, Judy! When comparing the Caribbean Beach Resort and the Coronado Springs Resort, I would have to give my nod to CSR. Both resorts are large, sprawling resorts in good locations with nice dining and recreation options. However, since CSR is a convention destination for business travelers and CBR serves as housing for many youth sports teams and other groups, the rooms and amenities of the CSR seem a step above CBR. In addition, the atmosphere is quieter and more family-friendly at CSR. I also think that the Maya Grill and Pepper Market are great dining choices for a moderate resort, and the Mayan-themed main pool at CSR is one of the best pools on property.

    Not to confuse you, but have you also looked into staying at Port Orleans Riverside or French Quarter? These are moderate resorts which have all the great amenities I mentioned above plus the added convenience of being on the waterway connected to Downtown Disney. Also, two Cabins at Fort Wilderness would suit your traveling party nicely and provide you with the flexibility of preparing meals or snacks in your room. The Fort is only a boat ride away from the Magic Kingdom. Plus, there's a world of recreation and entertainment at Fort Wilderness, too.

    Now that I've given you more options than you bargained for, please let me know if I can answer any more questions for you. I want to make sure you know all that's available and the advantages of each. Have a wonderful day and a magical vacation!
