Have stayed 3 times at CBR and it is a very good choice. Great food court-pools both quiet and main pool(recently refurbished) Some rooms you can see Illuminations fireworks from EPCOT at nite.

to the boards!!!

As you can see, there are lots of favorites on the Dis!!!

Thought I'd chime in since you mentioned CBR and it's our favorite!! It was our first onsite property to stay at when our kids were 5 and 6. Check out the CBR thread and photos in the Resorts forum!

What we love about CBR? Everything! The minute you enter, you feel as if your on a tropical island. We always see birds, turtles, rabbits, and other animals as you're walking back and forth. There are bus stations relatively close to each village, individual pools as well as the Port Royale pool. We love the music, the food court, walking back and forth to the pool, watching movies outside on the patio. It's our favorite so much, that if I can't stay there, I don't feel like I'm at Disney!:

We just love it! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

Port Orleans Riverside has Royal Rooms that look really neat. I think if our girls were really into princesses, we'd stay there.

We found the dining plan a good value when our kids were still kids. You could usually pay for the cost of the basic plan with one table service meal for kids. After our kids turned 10, they no longer qualified for the kids' plan so it was not a good value for us.

Our kids really enjoyed Coronado Springs at age 6. We've also stayed at French Quarter. Last time we stayed at the Swan and loved it.

The Swan and Dolphin are actually Starwood Hotels. Swan is a Westin, Dolphin is a Sheraton. You can earn points toward your stay by signing up for the Starwood American Express Card. The last time we were at WDW we stayed 5 nights on points. They are not Disney themed, but they are wonderful resorts.

My wife has a ton of plans for us! We downloaded the wdw times app, have already scheduled meals with characters, etc.

I am looking into buying a few groceries (breakfast, snacks, etc) for the room to save money. I am looking at garden grocer. Anyone have any recommendations.
