    Hi! Staying in Carribean Beach Resort 1/8/12-1/13/12. This is our 1st stay there. Do you recommend upgrading to a preferred room to stay in Martinique or Trinidad North or should we just request a standard room in Jamaica 45 or Barbados 51? Thanks!

    What's up, Ginna? Or should I say, "Surfs up, Ginna"... because you're going to the beach? No? Sorry. Being cutesy always backfires on me.

    I generally don't like paying extra for a preferred room at value and moderate resorts because I usually have pretty good luck with getting a room in a location I like. You're going to be at Disney World when crowds are lower.

    So here's what I'd do: request to be in Martinique, Trinidad North or Barbados (building 15 or 16). If the preferred rooms aren't filled up, you'd stand a chance of getting one. If not, you've got your back up plan captured on your reservation information.
