Luck of the draw. Your room is assigned 1-2 days prior to your arrival whether you do online check in or not.

So excited. I booked a pirate room for our anniversary trip in May. It will be our first time ever being away from the kids. I did a room only and hoping for a nice discount. I can save money on the tickets by buying the FL resident passes. I was thinking about doing a package with the DP but I think we can spend less than it would to pay for the plan. Now I just need to our money plan to go my way. It is also a surprise for hubby. He has no idea and it kills me. Their are times I just want to bust out and say everything. This will be our first time staying on property and about the only time we can afford a mod level resort. I did the pirate room cause hubby is a kid at heart and when I showed him pics of the pirate room and he said "forget the kids I want to stay there". So that's why I did it for my big kid. He deserves it.

CBR - Trip Review

We stayed at CBR from 10/24-10/31. This was our second time visiting at Disney and really enjoyed our trip. As other posters mentioned, it is huge! We paid for a preferred room and requested ground floor due to having two small children and a stroller. We in Trinidad North 33 and super close to the bus stop. I would definitely pay to stay preferred and close to the food and main pool.

I did online check in but the front desk was empty when we arrived at 10:30 AM. Our room was not ready but they texted us when it was available around 12. Our room was clean and we had no issues. The only cons would be the full size beds and the tiny bathroom. Although, not a big deal we found the room safe to be very tiny! It was only about 2 inches deep, so we couldn't keep much in it.

My kids loved the main pool and the kiddie play area. They even thought the pool side games were fun!

The food court had many options and we ate there quite a few times. I liked that they had a Mug Wash and a section with toppings (onions, tomato etc.)

One odd thing in the food court was the kids chicken nuggets. They were different from the adult ones and did not look appealing at all. If you have two children, I would suggest getting the adult size and splitting them.

Feel free to PM me with any questions.

Staying in Caribbean Beach Barbados currently (09/11/12), they changed the locks over to RFID today (while we were out at the Wine & Dine Expo).

An RFID door lock means you don't have to insert you card in the door to unlock it. If you look at the posted picture above, there is a pad above the door handle. All you have to do now is touch the pad with your KTTW and the door will unlock.

Thanks that what I thought. Just wanted to be sure. Sounds like its a better thing compared to the key insert type.

My DD stayed with a friend recently at Great Wolf Lodge and they use the RFID system for everything, charging to the room, room locks, purchases in the gift shop, access to the water park, etc..... but their RFID is in a bracelet that is given to each member of your party at checkin. I can imagine if Disney did the bracelet thing, the bracelets would begin to get a bit haggard looking after a couple of days. No way would they last a week.
