    We are planning a trip next year 9/9-9/13 and we are planning to stay in the Carribean, we want to be close to the big pool but we havent been able to get a straight answer on what the difference between the preferred or standard room? Can anyone Help!?

    You've chosen a great time to visit, Catherine; September is my family's favorite month to vacation at Walt Disney World.  You've also chosen a fabulous resort.  So far, it looks like things are lining up nicely for your vacation next year.  As for the difference between a preferred room and a standard one, basically a preferred room will be located within closer proximity to Old Port Royale, which is where you'll find the food court, resort gift shop and main themed pool.  If you opt for a standard room, you could be assigned a room quite a distance away, up to a twenty minute walk.  For some guests, that is no big deal.  Others prefer the convenience of a preferred room location.  I hope that clears things up for you!
