    Michelle from MI Asked

    I am trying to decide between the Caribbean Beach Resort and the Disney Port Orleans Riverside Resort. We have two girls 9 & 5 yrs old and looking for ease of getting around the resort and transportation times to the parks.

    Hi Michelle!

    It sounds like you are starting to plan a magical vacation for your family to enjoy.   I love both Disney Resorts you have picked, they are beautiful and packed with great amenities and amazing pool areas.  Since you are looking for ease of getting around and transportation as your most important features I would recommend Disney's Port Orleans Resort-Riverside.   This resort is full of southern charm, and fantastically suited Guest rooms, some which have even been decorated by Princess Tiana with help from her Royal friends. My daughter and I shared a Royal Guest room on a past trip and she still talks about how beautiful it was.   At Disney's Port Orleans-Riverside you will find bus transportation available to all theme parks, water parks, and Downtown Disney as well a relaxing water taxi service that also transports Guests to the Downtown Disney Resort area.    My 8 year-old daughter also loves taking part in the nightly marshmallow roasts, and trying her hand at the catch and release fishing available using cane poles.   I'm sure your daughters would love all the added features this moderate level Resort has to offer.

    Michelle,  if you have any other questions I can answer about your upcoming vacation please let me know.  I love to help Guests have the most magical time possible on a Disney Parks vacation.

    Have a Disney Day,
