    We will be staying at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. We paid for preferred rooms so that we'd be close to the main pool - our reason for selecting this resort. It's a large resort and I'm worried about the distrance to the pool. Any suggestions?

    Hi Susan!

    Great news!
    You've done a great thing by choosing to reserve a 'Preferred Room Location' at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. It is a large resort and even has it's own internal bus system. With your upgrade, you're ensured that your walk to Old Port Royale and the resort's main themed pool area, dining, shopping & main bus depot aren't too far a distance.

    You will likely find that your Preferred Room location will be in one of the villages flanking either side of Old Port Royale, those being Trinidad North & Martinque; or, in one of the villages directly across Barefoot Bay - Jamaica or Aruba. These 2 villages across the water are connected via footbridges across a beautiful little island.

    If you wish to take it one step further, you can if you wish, talk to a Cast Member and ask to have a "note" put on your reservation file requesting a specific building or village within the resort. *Do note that this is a request and not a guarantee. Your reservation notes will be taken into account when your room is assigned and Cast Members at the resort will do their best to meet your request(s) if they're available for your dates of stay. To have a notation this this added to your resort reservation file, simply call (407)939-7675 and have your confirmation number handy.

    If you wish to make a specific building request to be the closest location possible, ask for Buildings 31 (as first choice) followed by 26, 45 or 51 (the latter 2 are directly across the footbridge). Of those, 26 is closest to the park bus stops and eating locations and 31 is closest to the themed pool, but all are the 'best' locations possible.

    Please contact me again any time here at the Moms Panel if I can be of any further assistance to you.
    Have a Magical time at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort Susan!
