I would go CBR. Rooms are bigger- double sinks- hot tubs- more relaxing. Is this a standard room at CBR? If it is I would request a room closer to the food court.(we always get preferred) but I heard there's been complaining about the walk in the little mermaids rooms too from the food court. You didn't mention if you have little kids??

I would definitely upgrade to CBR. I would choose a mod over a value ANY DAY!

Okay, I already am 40, but if I were to change my name, how would you know it was me?

I faced the same decision, only CBR stay was a little less than the LM room I had booked. As much as I need to stay AoA in order "to stay at them all" I could not pay more to stay value than I would for a mod. And, I think my AoA experience should be in a suite....so I will wait until I am not solo, and maybe be able to get a discount..... I do prefer the food court at AoA, however.

Haven't stayed at AoA or any other value, but I would upgrade without hesitation, especially for just $8 more a night. We loved CBR and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

I've never stayed at AoA but have stayed at the CBR 8 times. I'd definitely make the change. Your room at the CBR will be larger, the bus stops are covered, the pool has a slide, there is a marina, good food court and lush landscaping.
