I'll throw out another suggestion.....keep your CBR reservation but change it to a standard (or maybe even preferred) location and maybe the extra savings would allow you to actually add a day to the vacation. Yes, the CBR is a large resort but the walking is not prohibitive. While we have never stayed in a pirate room, I have walked over to the village where the rooms are and my walk to Old Port Royale was just 7 minutes. Not long at all.

We have stayed in both preferred and standard rooms at the CBR. My mother has been with us twice when we stayed in a standard room and she had no problems walking from our room to anywhere on the resort grounds. She'll soon be 79 years old and has requested that we stay at the CBR when she travels with us again in 2013.

In the end decide what you want to do. The kids will be happy anywhere you are. Deluxe with monorail is the best. Consider the WL too. It may work and you may get a discount at some point. The kids would love the pool and the boat ride to the MK. Everything is right there and very little walking and planning needed.

Making the most of your time at WDW is priority #1, but...I don't care for CBR at all, and CR is really cool with the monorail and the ability to walk to MK. Given those variables, I'd cut a day and stay at CR.
