The Geek's Thoughts & Suggestions

We stayed at the Caribbean Beach resort during the summer of 1990. It really was a great resort. We were really surprised by how well Disney adapted itself to this "moderate" price range, this was the first resort in this range. It was well worth staying onsite verses off-site. The other really amazing thing about this resort to me is its size. It is really spreadout. This was nice because you didn't feel as if you had 2000+ rooms all on top of each other. The food court was ok. The Disney bus system that services this resort was fairly efficient. The only thing is that at popular times the buses fill up really fast.

We really enjoyed staying here, but we thought due to the size and the bus routes it sometimes took quite a while to get places.
