No Love For The CBC?
Why does everyone discard the Caribbean Beach Club when discussing the moderate resorts? The location isn't really that bad a situation, and I'll give you the fact that it is quite expansive. Beyond that, however, I think this is an untapped jewel of a property. It is particularly good when we take the kids, because it provides a true environmental break from the parks. It is like having a dual vacation . . . one at a beach-type resort and one at amusement parks. The CBC has the theming and magic of the WDW Resorts while being a world away from the hustle and bustle. Kids can play in the sand while you can rest on a hammock for your mid-day break. All with faint island music in the background.
I have stayed at the PO and the Coronado, and I wouldn't put them above the CBC. Port Orleans makes for a charming evening walk, and the Coronado has great breakfast enchiladas on their buffet. Otherwise, I don't vote for them.
Beyond that, thanks for another great podcast, Lou!
Thanks to you and Jeff for highlighting the best part of the Jungle Cruise - the entrance queue. I don't know how many times we rode after 10 pm and I was ridiculed by the boat driver and my wife for holding up the show and not running onto the ride!
