    staying @ CBR, and very excited but was this a bad choice considering our daughter is 5? is it pretty kid friendly? I've just been reading some good and bad things about it on here. what should I really be thinking? i just dont want 2 b stressing bout it

    Hi Mandy,

    The great thing about the resorts about Walt Disney World is that they are all family friendly.  You don't need to stress out about anything, Caribbean Beach is a beautiful resort.  I have stayed there in the past, and I recently took a peak at the new Pirate themed rooms, and they look like so much fun.  The other rooms are nice, as well, and the pool area is FANTASTIC!

    Caribbean Beach is a large resort with a very island feel.  You'll probably want to request a room close to a bus stop, because carrying an overtired 5 year old at the end of the evening can get tiring.  In fact, you may also want to dust off that old umbrella stroller just in case you find that the walking is too much for your little one.  Trust me, she won't be the only five year old sitting in a stroller. 

    The only thing better than Caribbean Beach, to me, would be doing a total upgrade to a Deluxe Resort.  Deluxe Resorts usually have the advantage of location; they're often within walking distance to a theme park or they're on the monorail route, thus making it easy to return to the hotel for a nap or quick dip in the pool.  Otherwise, I find the moderate resorts to be a great option.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!
