    Hi Chantal!  Congratulations on your first Walt DIsney World Vacation!  I have personally stayed at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort in the past and loved the tropical theming and recreational activities that are offered at this Disney Moderate Resort. I got a sneak peek tour of Disney's Art of Animation Resort in April and loved the immersive storybook setting and attention to detail at every turn.  With that being said, if you have the opportunity to receive a free dining plan offer by staying at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, I would recommend without any hesitation choosing a vacation at Caribbean Beach Resort. Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney's Art of Animation Resort both offer unique theming and unparalleled service that you can expect from a Disney Resort. Both resorts will have their own dedicated bus lines, complimentary wifi, and use of Disney's complimentary transportation. At Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, the main pool complex is a swashbuckling adventure featuring two water slides, water cannons and two 12-person spas. I definitely think you would like both of these amazing resorts, but the cost savings of receiving the free dining promotion would give Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort the edge for me. Follow this link to view photos and a listing of all the recreational activities and amenities that you can experience at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort.  I hope this information helps in making your decision.  Please feel free to write back with any additional questions that you may have. Best wishes for a Magical December Trip, Chantal!
    Happy Planning,
