At CBR right now

Loving CBR! Checked in yesterday and were "upgraded" to a pirate room. Not sure if this would be an upgrade or downgrade for most folks, as the pirate rooms are kind of separate from everything else and a ways from the rest of the resort. However, dd is LOVING it; and dh and I were surprised to find that we like the peace and quiet. Ds and I walked to the main pool yesterday, and the walk wasn't too bad. (Wouldn't want to do it during the summer months, though!) It also helps that we have a car, so we don't "have" to walk. Quiet pool has been empty since we checked in early yesterday morning. Main pool had plenty of chairs even during the busier afternoon hours. Resort is completely booked (2/3 conference go-ers), but you'd never know it. Food court selections were great (especially after spending a day at POP!!!) and tasty. CMs are the friendliest we've encountered in quite a while. Looking forward to our week here!!

Wow!!! I am so happy to hear you like CBR. I was so hesitant to book CBR. But you are lucky you got a pirate room. To upgrade from standard to pirate for a week would cost me $500. I will just book standard and pray for that upgrade! Are the grounds really lovely? Enjoy your trip!

Thanks for the update -- I'm almost at single digits and it is nice to hear someone raving about CBR -- it seems to be the resort most love to complain about. It's funny, to me, as the moderates (except for POFQ) all have about the same number of rooms, yet everyone complains CBR is too big.

I'm hoping I don't get an upgrade to a pirate room -- I booked a kingbed!

Will you be posting pictures? CBR is the only MOD we haven't stayed at, I wish they had Queen sized beds. I'm interested though in seeing updated pictures of the resort.

SqueekyMouse: Thanks for the "live" report! How neat that you were upgraded to a pirate room. I've heard a lot of folks complain about the walk but I timed it and it wasn't that bad...7 minutes to OPR. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

I didn't look to see if you have a ticker to see when you are considering going. The CBR will be getting a room makeover, complete with queen size beds, beginning in April, 2014.

I'm in the 1st stages of planning--want to go next Sept. 2014. Hoping for FD and will see what MOD resorts are available for this. If we can't get POR will consider CBR if they do get Queen Sized beds. Thanks so much for letting me know about the update coming.

Glad you like it. I admit to being a CBR complainer - our room needed updating, didn't like the full size beds, and the resort being so spread out and the multiple internal bus stops made it not one of our better trips. We always stay on property so that we don't have to rent a car and it seemed like people who had a car liked it better here.

Just got to our Pirate Room and there's no fridge. Called the front desk and they offered the $15 a night credit or to move is to another room. Other than that everything has been great so far

I wonder when the whole fridge roll out will be? I'll be there for two weeks over NYE and am hoping for one!!
