Just to expand on what mickeystoontown stated. Here is the movie schedule for the month of October. It is subject to change, but you will also get the schedule when you check in.

Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort Movie Schedule

8:00PM - By the Feature Pool
Sunday - Pocahontas
Monday -Halloweentown
Tuesday - The Nightmare Before Christmas
Wednesday -Hocus Pocus
Thursday - Monsters, Inc.
Friday - Cinderella (See our Princess Page)
Saturday - The Princess & the Frog

Also, the marshmallow roast usually starts about an hour before the movie. Both times change as the time of sunset changes throughout the year. The CMs have marshmallows and sticks. If you want s'mores, you'll have to bring the chocalate and graham crackers. Those are available in the gift shop. The CMs that do the marshmallow roast are awesome any time we have do it. They are full of great stories and tid bits about CBR and WDW in general.

How does the internal bus system work? Is it frequent? If we were to walk to the farthest end of the resort from the main bus stop where the park buses do pickups and drop-offs, how long would that take? It is my understanding that the internal bus is SEPARATE from the park buses, which is different from the Port Orleans park buses that service ALL four depots at Riverside, along with FQ for certain times of the day. Is this correct?

Not quite correct. Yes, there is an internal bus system that stops at all the villages, OPR and the Custom House (where you check-in/out). It runs constantly and the internal loop takes ~10 minutes to go all the way around. Other than after checking in, we have never needed the internal bus. Even if you are in the farthest location from OPR and the Main Pool, it is a 10 minute walk to them. We like to stay in Jamaica 45 and it's a 5 minute walk to OPR and the Main Pool.

There is no main bus stop that you need to go to in order to catch a bus to the parks. The buses to the parks stop at every village to pick up and drop off. In that respect, it is exactly the same as POR and POFQ. We like this setup because you are never far from a bus stop. The buses all will be clearly marked with either Internal or which park they are going to.

I hope this helps!

Thank you very much, that is very helpful! I was worried about the walk after being spoiled with staying at POFQ last year, and in the closest building and stairwell at that! However that does not sound too bad.

Are there any recent photos of this resort? The photos on this thread seem a few years old

There have been some added in the last few months on the CBR Pics thread. I can't get the link to work on my iPad, but if you to to the top of the Resorts board, and click on the Resort Photos/Video sub board, the thread is on that page.

I don't know what you consider recent but 2012 pictures start on page 53 of the CBR pictures thread, http://www.disboards.com/showthread....845975&page=53.

Honeymoon

OK bear with me. My dd got married this past Sat and the other set of parents have given them a honeymoon. There is no limit,BUT my dd and son in law don't want to break the bank. This week they are driving around Texas (where we live). They're free spirited and don't plan so I am hunting WDW for next week.

We've been to WDW before but not stayed at the moderates. Any specific advice for a nice/pretty room or locale in CBR? I'd love for them to stay at the Poly but I don't think they want to impose that upon the parents
TIA

We are staying here for the first time Nov 12-16 for our 10 year anniversary and I am so excited! Now we have stayed at POR a few times can someone compare CBR to POR for me as far as walking distance to the food court? I'm wondering if its similiar to each other? Thanks

Our walk from one of the furthest buildings in Barbados was 7 1/2 minutes but we were behind a couple with a double stroller who were walking very slowly. The walks from Jamaica Bldgs. 41 and 42 were about 5 minutes and from non-preferred buildings in Martinique were about 5 minutes as well.

How nice of them to offer to pay for the trip! I would be like them and couldn't ask that they pay for a stay at the Polynesian. That's a big chunk of change!

We have stayed in Jamaica several times in buildings 41 and 42 and it was a great location. The walk to the food court, main pool, etc. were about 5 minutes.

Weird Question

Does anyone have a picture of the hairdryers outside of the cradle that holds it? I have a universal diffuser and I want to make sure this will go over it. I'm thinking the barrel might be a bit short and the diffuser may not fit over it.

Thanks.

ETA: Just noticed the pictures on page 53 that was mentioned from a PP. I noticed that Snuggles was in the vending machine for a fabric softner sheet. Does anyone know if Bounce is available as I'm allergic to Snuggles and DS10 has a reaction to Downy.
