    I am planning a trip to WDW this Oct. for my 7 year old niece, mom and me. I am having a hard time deciding between the Carribean Beach resort and Coronado Springs. I have heard great things about both. Can you tell me which would be the better choice?

    Hi LaToya!

         Without a doubt, I recommend the Caribbean Beach Resort!  Caribbean Beach's rooms have all been recently renovated to reflect either a Finding Nemo or Pirates theme.  While the rooms that have been updated at Coronado Springs are absolutely gorgeous, many of them have not yet been renovated.  Also, the food court at Coronado Springs is more expensive, due to a large number of conventioneers.  The large number of conventions held at Coronado Springs gives it a more sedated, business like atmosphere.

         On the other hand Caribbean Beach is bustling with excitement and the food court is perfect for even the pickiest seven year old little girl.  The main pool is, for lack of a better phrase, "totally awesome!"  If she isn't a strong swimmer, the kiddie pool is equally amazing.  If you want to splurge for one of the Pirate Rooms, please be aware that they are a little bit extra.  Please let me know if I can offer any other help!

    Much pixie dust,
