    We are planning a trip next year 9/9-9/13 and we are planning to stay in the Carribean, we want to be close to the big pool but we havent been able to get a straight answer on what the difference between the preferred or standard room? Can anyone Help!?

    You've chosen a great time to visit, Catherine; September is my family's favorite month to vacation at Walt Disney World.  You've also chosen a fabulous resort.  So far, it looks like things are lining up nicely for your vacation next year.  As for the difference between a preferred room and a standard one, basically a preferred room will be located within closer proximity to Old Port Royale, which is where you'll find the food court, resort gift shop and main themed pool.  If you opt for a standard room, you could be assigned a room quite a distance away, up to a twenty minute walk.  For some guests, that is no big deal.  Others prefer the convenience of a preferred room location.  I hope that clears things up for you!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
