    I can stay at the Caribbean beach resort for the same price as art or animation because of an offer disney has advertised what should I do ? My kids are 8 and 10 years of age .

    Hi Shona!  That's a great offer that you have found, and definitely tempting I'm sure.  I have stayed at both Caribbean Beach and just recently at Art of Animation.  Caribbean Beach  is a tropical feeling resort but it is very spread out-so large they have an internal bus to take guests in far-away rooms to the restaurants and shops.  They do have a great themed pool that your kids would very much enjoy, and each of the 9 "villages" has it's own quiet pool. Along with a very nice playground, there is a large lake in the middle of the resort and it makes for a pleasant walk around if you are so inclined.  The feel of the resort overall is very tranquil and if peace and tranquility are what you are after, then this is the resort for you.  At the complete other end of the spectrum is Art of Animation, which I would describe as Disney theming magnified X10!  This is a fun resort, that will appeal to any fan of Disney's animated films.  Cars, Finding Nemo, Lion King and Little Mermaid are all represented here in larger than life depictions of their movies and heavily themed guest rooms.  Three themed pools, one being the largest on Disney property, a playground and movies under the stars are just some of the great activities offered here. I can tell you that even my almost-grown up kids and my husband and I absolutely loved Art of Animation and it is definitely a new favourite for us.  On the other hand, none of us were "wowed" by Caribbean Beach, to be honest, but I guess we just prefer more of a Disney feel in a hotel.

    I hope I've given you the information that you can use to make your decision, and that you all have a magical vacation, whichever resort you choose!  Please feel free to ask me anything else you may think of!
