    thank you so much! i had no idea carribean beach was that big and could be so far from the lobby/bus etc. we plan on visiting all of disney over 9 days. so overall, considering the first question, and that we have an infant, advice on best overall hotel?

    Hi again, Kim! I think a lot of guests end up surprised by the size of the Caribbean Beach Resort. It is the largest on Disney property.

    As mentioned before, you can expect to spend travel time to some of the Parks for each of the Resorts. For example, even the Deluxe monorail Resorts require a bus to get to Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios. Since you mentioned before that you are just looking for a place to rest at night, I think you'd be fine with a Value Resort. Pop Century is a favorite of many people. See HERE.

    However, if you are interested in a moderate instead, I would recommend the Port Orleans French Quarter. See HERE. This is the smallest of the moderate Resorts, and is quaint and peaceful. They have a wonderful food court and fun pool. For a quiet riverview room, ask for Buildings 1 or 6. Given that you are staying for 9 days, I think that I would choose to stay here. If you want some down time, it is a great area to stroll around. In addition, you can take the boat to Downtown Disney, which is nice as well.

    Hope this helps. I'm happy to help you with any further planning questions you have.
