    I am looking to book a trip for January 2011 and am deciding between Caribbean Beach Resort and Port Orleans Riverside. What do you guys think? It will be two adults and I will be requesting the king size bed. We were just in Disney this past April and stayed at Wilderness Lodge so I am going to do moderate this time around. What is everyone's thoughts?

    Well, you've narrowed it down to my 2 favorite resorts! :thumbsup2 Love them both, but the theming is very different at each. So I would say to pick whichever theme you like more and go for it. :goodvibes

    Here are my reviews of each with lots of pictures:
    CBR ~ http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2074555
    POR ~ http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2333071

    Both are very lush and beautiful, have great food courts, great bus service, and awesome pools. I do give a slight edge to CBR for larger rooms, more storage space in the bathroom area, it's tropical theme, and the best pools/slides. But like I said, both are great! :)

    Out of the two you list for two adults only, I would go with POR for the boat ride to DTD, carriage ride, great food court and the theme of the resort.

    I would probably pick Riverside so you could take the boat to Downtown Disney- very relaxing and a nice perk.

    I say that you go with Port Olrleans. Don't go for riverside for two adults go for french quarter. Riverside is all one color and the French Quarter is more fun and festive.:woohoo:
