Howdy neighbor!! Thank you for the reply. I need to start saving my quarters now.

You're welcome! If you can't find Aveeno, then ask a pharmacist. I've also used Calamine lotion but Aveeno works better.

If I booked through a travel agent, does she or I fax in room requests to CBR?

How far in advance should requests be faxed in?

TIA!

Your TA should have put your request in when booking your reservations with Disney.

You can request your travel agent to FAX four days before you arrive, but if it was me I would FAX my own personal request

Figure your 4 days prior to arrival this way:

Thursday - Arrival day/check-in
Wednesday - 1 day prior
Tuesday - 2 days prior
Monday - 3 days prior
Sunday - 4 days prior

CBR Fax - 407-934-3288

The entire lake itself is only 1.2 miles around, so the walk from Trinidad South Building 39 (farthest) is only a fraction of that. At most you will walk 15 mins to OPR (and that is with kids, strollers, pool supplies). The walk is just under ten if you are bagless.

I got my ticker all changed to CBR. It was so hard to get a moderate during free dining. We opted not to go with the free dining promo. We wanted to be almost adr free. So we went with the room only discount added tickets and the QSDP. Which ended up being 150.00 more. But we would spend more than that on tips and mugs. We are still doing t-rex, rainforest and garden grill OP.

This is our frist trip to CBR so I'm excited. I dont' really care what building number we are in. But from the look of the map it looks like Jamica or Aruba would be a good request?

Jamaica and Aruba are good locations to request as are the non-preferred buildings in Martinique.

Sorry if this has been asked

But I got overwhelmed with the hundreds of pages on CBR!

My question is: are the Pirate rooms with connecting doors?? (And yes I know that this is only a request and not a guarantee )

Transportation

I just have a question about Disney transportation. We're staying at CBR in August and we have booked breakfast reservations at other resorts. I know that the busses don't go from resort to resort but do busses/monorail/boats run early enough to transfer at one of the parks to a resort bus so we can easily get to our reservations?

We're heading to see Mickey in November and will be staying at CBR for the first time. We've been at POR the past 2 visits and thought that we would try something different. Where are the better places to try and request? We drive our own car to the parks each day and have ADRs at the parks, we really don't need close access to bus locations or the main area. We do plan to have one day at the pools at the resort. Thanks for the advice and suggestions.

They enjoy CBR so much more. There's no question. They have never mentioned POFQ again. But they are always asking when we are going back to CBR!



Oh no, not even close! I don't think the whole promenade around the entire lake is that long! I don't know the exact distance, but I am pretty sure it is less than a half mile from TS to OPR. You can probably find out for sure on Google Earth.
According to allearsnet it is 1.4 miles around the lake if that helps any.

I just switched my res from POFQ to CBR! I'm so excited...thanks to this & the other CBR threads! The only other mod we've stayed at is POR & we love it there! We booked FQ for something different, but not TOO different! LOL But after reading this thread & seeing all the pics, and getting over my fear of the sheer size of the place, I took the plunge. I requested bldg 21 in Martinique since all the preferred bldgs are sold out for the free dining.

We'll be there 9/19-26/10! Anyone else?

Anyone eat at Shutters? I have an adr there...but there aren't too many reviews on dis for some reason. (that I can find, anyway)
