    We are planning a trip to WDW for my daughter’s 7th birthday. I’m interested in the CBR new mermaid rooms? How can I book that specific room? It is a preferred room or 5th sleeper? Or is it listed mermaid room like the pirate room was listed?

    Welcome to planDisney Kattie! Thanks for stopping by with your question. 

    Happy Birthday to your soon-to-be 7-year-old! One of my most memorable family Disney vacations included a week at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. This serene leisurely resort is home to one of the best pools in all of the Disney Resorts Collection Hotels in my opinion. The Fuentes del Morro Pool has a beautiful Spanish citadel design. And features some helpful and fun features. The 82-foot slide is what kids of all ages see when they approach this pool. It has two water cannons and an additional smaller slide. The zero-entry part of the pool is helpful for little ones and anyone not wanting to enter the pool to swim. Some rooms here have been refurbished recently.

    If you are looking for the new Little Mermaid rooms you will want to select the 5th sleeper option. These rooms are closer to the Disney Skyliner in the Trinidad section of the resort. Once you are 60 days from your arrival date you can request a room during check-in. But you have already surpassed that. Call Reservations and one of the Cast Members can help you set up your request. If you have already downloaded the My Disney Experience App you can request the room during the online check-in. While there are no guarantees for these requests, in my experience they will do what they can to accommodate reasonable requests as long as there is availability. 

    I hope this information helps you get that special request. Either way, this birthday visit will be a memorable one. Visit us again at and we will be ready and happy to help anytime. 

    See ya real soon,
