    If you have your own car, is it always better (faster, more convenient) to use it instead of Disney transportation? Staying at CBR in a pirate-themed room and will have my parents' car with us (4A, 2K).

    Your family is in for a real treat, Janice; those pirate rooms at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort are so much fun!  As for the car, there are differing views.  I happen to be in the "pro car" camp.  In my experience, driving yourself from place to place is significantly more convenient and efficient than relying on Disney transportation.  I must admit, though, that I am not well known for having patience.  When I am ready to head back to the room after a long day in the parks the last thing I want to do is wait on a bus.  For that reason, we almost always rent a car.  There have been trips during which rental rates seem particularly high and we opt to skip it.  Confession: I always regret it. 

    Since you will have use of a vehicle, you could certainly try both ways during your trip and see which you prefer.  I suspect you'll appreciate the car.  Either way, have a magical trip!
