    1st trip to WDW in Dec. Just my husband and I. We are looking at CBR or CSR. Which would you suggest? And which area/buildings do you suggest. Also looking at King beds, but have read they are mostly in wheelchair accesible rooms. Is that true? Help!


    Congratulations on your first trip to Disney!

    Although the buildings at both resorts encircle a large lake, if I had to choose between Caribbean Beach Resort and Coronado Springs for just the two of you, I would opt for Coronado Springs, with its more upscale dining options and its rooms less child-themed.

    If you can imagine the upscale resorts of the Southwest with the colors of the Sedona red hills, that's what you'll find at CSR, all laid out around a large 15-acre lake.  Although you're going in December, sometimes the temperature during the day is pleasant enough to lounge by the pool by the Mayan temple and cascading waterfall!  Because the hotel also houses a Convention center at one end, it has additional features for adults like Rix lounge and room service if you'd like to treat yourself to breakfast in bed!  It also has one of my favorite counter service restaurants: The Pepper Market.

    The resort recently underwent a renovation and has added more king beds.  If you want to make sure that you get a tub rather than a handicap accessible roll-in shower, just make the request when you make your reservations.  I prefer the Casistas with their fountain courtyards, but the Cabanas are just as close and the rooms as nice.  Because of the 10-minute walk to the main building and unimpressive landscaping, I wouldn't request a Ranchos room.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
