2 rooms or a family suite? CBR vs CSR

Help! OK so I booked our trip and currently have us staying at the art of animation resort which I have stayed at before and it is incredible as far as theming, however this is mostly an adult trip so I feel the added amenities might be best at a moderate resort so here’s my question do I stick with the family suite or do I go with two rooms in a moderate resort? Also, pricing wise I’m looking at Caribbean Beach resort or Coronado springs. I’ve only stayed in deluxe and value so I don’t have much experience with a moderate resorts. Any input and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

When is your trip?

Reason I ask is that both CBR and CSR are in the midst of major construction and refurbishing until late next year.

Granted, Disney does a great job masking off floors where there’s work being done. However, I wouldn’t want to stay in a resort while any major work is going on so mention this in case you may feel as I do. Kinda reduces the magic for me, but given how such stays can be discounted, you might be going, “Yes! Gimme!”

Is POR or POFQ out of budget? POFQ is especially popular with adults because its theming isn’t tremendously appealing to kids. We’ve never stayed there, but my DSis and DBIL did once and loved it. Very peaceful but with great entertainment available, they said.

I wish POR or POFQ were in our price range. I have always wanted to stay at both. We will be traveling June 21-28 2019.

We have stayed in a Junior Suite at CSR and thought it was nice. Its basically two connected rooms and one side has two beds (Queen?) and the other side had a sofa bed or a bed that pulled down from the wall. Its been a few years and can't remember for sure. We like CSR a lot and better than some of the deluxe resorts. Depending on when you go you will want to consider the construction at each resort. Both have major project underway.

Ahhh, June 2019.

Yup, smack in the midst of massive construction at both as MichaelF indicated.

Me, I’d stick with AOA unless dodging construction and possibly doing without some of those extra features that make a Mod more appealing won’t bother your group as much as it would me.

I loved AOA. I would stay with that one. CSR is HUGE making it difficult to get to all the amenities, and requiring 5 bus stops. If you're using Disney transportation I think you are better with AOA.

How many adults? The number of bathrooms could be a factor.

Honestly I would probably choose CBR. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. I also think that you might possibly be able to score a summer discount for there where the suites are almost always excluded. With the construction not completely finished some people will be shying away making those rooms easier to book and modify by applying a discount when and if it becomes available.

The number of bathrooms is definitely a factor. It looks like the majority of the construction was announced as finished and operational this morning, and only construction on two buildings remains.

I would do two rooms at CBR if the construction is finished as they say it should be. Two bathrooms and bigger rooms are a plus for me!
