We stayed at the Caribbean Beach Resort. It gets horrible reviews in the Disney books--something we discovered long after booking. But our experience was positive. We found the resort not too different in quality than other moderate Disney resorts.
Our flight left at 8 a.m. on a Saturday. By 12:30 we were having lunch at a table in view of Cinderella's Castle.
Coming off the roller coaster of 2008, this was the perfect way to escape sub-zero Ohio and spend some quality time alone. Also, Husband gamely wore his birthday button the whole day, providing endless amusement for me.
The weekend was a chance for us to reconnect, to complete a conversation without interruption, for him to politely sit through Small, Small World and for me to kick his ass in the Toy Story ride/game (at least on the second time around). We can't wait to go back. Don't tell our kids.
