Yes, but it will take you approx 60-90 mins to do this. You might want to think about taking a cab as the cab fare from one resort to another is usually fairly reasonable.

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)
I haven't eaten at Shutters but on the Podcast they did a review of Shutters and it wasn't pretty...hold on I'll find the link to the blog entry...

here you go

The blog review of Shutter's was the first one that I had read that was really really bad. Most of the other reviews I read said it was pretty decent.

Like Pete said it is shocking bc the food at Old Port Royale which is literally attached to Shutters is actually pretty good.

Yes, the buses start running very early because of breakfast ADR's. We usually leave about an hour to get from resort to resort by WDW transportation and always get there in plenty of time.

I am going to keep an eye out for other reviews of Shutter's because we had thought about booking an ADR there for our first night at the resort. Hopefully, this was a one-time occurrence.

I just booked our room for Caribbean Beach Resort today. It will be our first stay here. Our other two trips we stayed at All Star Movies. I saw somewhere online where you can mail a coconut. My daughter really wants to get some of these to mail home to her friends and was wondering how much they cost. Thanks!

I take cabs all the time. It is reasonable. Was thinking about a car. But the cabs seem to keep there rates pretty reasonable.

I think Disney makes them. I heard from the podcast crew that the cab companies also keep there better vehicles on property as well.

I wouldn't worry we always use the bus system for our early morning ADR's and never had a problem.

This was all I found online about coconuts. Bet it is what you have too, but here goes:

Hi All,

I have a question regarding the whole "what will you celebrate?" theme. Okay so this is a solo trip for me and dd12 and one of the reasons we are going is that she just finished her first year (6th grade) at a school for the gifted and talented she also ended the year with honors and so I would like to have something in the room for her. I know there are things like the disney florist $$ but I wanted to know if you call the hotel and ask for a "card signed by mickey" would they do it? or is that something I would have to do with a package. Hard to surprise her and I'd like that to be in the room when we get there and then I'd put whatever I get her there myself.

TIA

6 more days til we get to CBR
