That's what I would suggest. I usually call when we are a week out from our arrival date just to make sure that my requests are noted.

Okay, so I know the top 3 suggestions for standard buildings... but which one do I REALLY want, Aruba 51 or Jamaica 45? Besides color, is there any benefit for one over the other?

Not that I can think of.

Jamaica would be near the bus stop that is usually picked up first. A benefit if you want to be sure of getting a seat. Aruba would be the second stop most of the time. I think the Magic Kingdom bus has a slightly different route than the rest of the parks.

Queen beds

Has anyone heard if and when they will upgrade the CBR beds to Queens? I had heard sometime this year. We are going in June and would really like the more comfortable beds.

It would be great if they had queens there soon. We are going in August and I think the only minus is the fact that they don't have queen size bed here. For me having a bigger resort isn't such an issue as we like to walk and look at stuff. Last time we stayed at the Riverside and I really didn't understand when people complained about it being big. I've been noticing that this seems to be the number one complaint of a lot of the resorts!

Just saw this -- schedule for CBR renovations for this year. They're painting Jamaica through June 28 so not sure I'll get my requested village/building :-(

A mousekeeper mentioned the bed upgrade when we were there in May and then, when I called to book our May, 2013, trip, the castmember asked if we had stayed in one of the recently refurbed rooms with the queen beds. I'm not sure if the bed change-out will ever occur but I'd like to see it happen.

We'll be there in June, too. I would think they would do only one building at a time, so maybe it won't affect too many people.

When we were in Aruba 51, we used the Jamaica bus stop.

I saw this too.. but I called to ask about it and the CM could find no information at all about any refurbs. She said if there were any they would most certainly be listed on whatever lists or whatever it was she was looking at. Soooo, not sure what's going on with that.
