My wife and I are taking our son to wdw in February of 2023 and are having a hard time deciding which resort to stay at. We are looking to do a 7-10 day stay. So far we it’s between pop century, Caribbean beach or art of animation. Dining, transportation and pools are the main factors for us. Our son will be 2 by then so hopefully we can spend more time at the parks but who knows. We used to be cms so we never had this issue of staying on property lol. Thanks!

I stayed at Pop all the way back in 2005 as a kid and LOVED it. As a cm we’ve always heard great things about it and are leaning towards there. Plus, it’s pretty cheap so we’d have extra money to spend elsewhere
The skyliner is a game changer and you get it at all 3…take the cheapest option.

the little mermaid Rooms at art are good also - same price - but quite a long way from the transportation.

shhhhh🤫…don’t giveaway the secret about the skyliner

If you stay at either AoA or Pop, you can easily walk over to the sister resort for some different quick service. And, CBR is a short skyliner ride away from CBR for those dining options. For a 2yo, AoA or Pop would be better themed.

I prefer CBR but it's just my wife and I. I like the quite pools not crowded and easy to be more relaxed. POP and AoA both can get crowded easily. But you really can't go wrong with any of the tree and as stated above the Skyliner is a game changer.

Are the lines for the skyliner bad? I’ve heard they can get really long and bad at times

on our trip we had a really long line the first morning we went to ride. We had gotten in line about 15 minutes before the Skyliner was to start. I was not happy and thought we had made a big mistake. Then once the Skyliner opened the line began to move and never really stopped. That huge line was handled quickly.

Caribbean beach’s pool is probably my favorite of any pool on Disney property. For a 2 year old it’s perfect. 0 entry so they can walk right in. 2 water slides. A larger one and a smaller one. And they have a really nice water area for smaller children with slides and water shooters and dump buckets etc.

How are the rooms?

We've stayed at Pop several times, CBR once (years ago) and never at AoA. We like Pop and always try to book an upper floor facing the lake.
