WDW Caribbean Beach Resort
« on: July 02, 2016, 09:40:05 PM »
Hi there, after a brilliant holiday at DLP, we are now looking at going to WDW and after having a brief look at the hotels, we are looking at the Caribbean Beach.

Has any other posters been there and what's there thoughts on it. How far a bus journey is it to the other parks; especially the Magic Kingdom? Or can anyone recommend any other hotels in roughly the same price bracket. We would be going with children aged 9 and 5.

Any info would be greatly appreciated

Have you looked at the easyWDW site for guides to the WDW resorts? http://www.easywdw.com/easy/disneybest/best-disney-world-moderate-resort-hotel/

:) Port Orleans French Quarter is nice (and fairly small, which is handy), but its facilities for the kids are a little smaller.
However it and Riverside have great connectivity for the parks themselves. :D

Caribbean Beach however is enormous, and like the EasyWDW Resort ranking that Daddyof2 linked will tell you, it's a little too big. ;) If you're unlucky you'll be about a mile from the busstop to the parks, which is a bit of downside so to speak. :)

There is a large info thread here:

I would also ask your question over at the disboards.com and have a look at wdwinfo.com

I have stayed at Port Orleans Riverside and Swan and Dolphin hotels. As the resort is so big you will have a hard choice to find a hotel that's close to all. We found Port Orleans Riverside and French Quarter to be fairly central to all parks. Swan And Dolphin were great for Epcot and Hollywood Studios. As DisneyRon has said bear in mind the size of the resort. Our rooms at the riverside were great for the bus stops but were 800 steps( I know I'm sad but I had to check) to reception/Breakfast.
