We'll be there soon too! Our first time staying at a moderate. I am so excited!! Hope it's warm enough for the boys to enjoy the kid's water play area. Heh. Even if it's not hot I bet they'll still attempt it.

A little bummed. We had to change our reservations. My MIL won't be able to watch the kids so I am changing it to a family vacation we will be staying at POP now. Need 2 rooms and we can afford POP. Not giving up on CBR though. I will make it one day.

They say the best day to buy tickets is on Tuesday at 3pm and the best day to fly is Wednesday. That is a crazy difference.

well we did it...we added up the vacation fund and managed to jump ship today from the ASMu to our beloved CBR! We didnt manage to make the pirate room, just a standard room but we are overjoyed that we managed to stretch the budget to get in CBR we love it so much. We requested either Aruba or Jamaica....( for some funny reason she just laughed and said "em NO maam" when I wanted to request a pirate room..lol) oh well cant blame a gal for trying right?? heheh We will be arriving May 5th till May 11th and are flying this year instead of driving. Our 4 yr old is desperate to get on a plane so he will be so excited to find out hes finally getting to fly. 10 weeks to go!! we cant wait. We havnt told the kids yet, for obvious reasons of not having our ears chewed of with "are we going yet" we will wait till a little nearer the time.. ahhhhh CBR...Im coming back to see youuuuuuuuuu my little piece of paradise in the sun.

I just booked our September trip for CBR. We've stayed the last 2 times at POFQ, but wanted to try something different this time around. Looking forward to it!

We just got back from a week at CBR (February 13th - 20th) had stayed here twice before, but switched to POFQ last year. Returning to CBR waS HEAVEN! I love the CBR even more now. We had a great trip. The resort was absolutely beautiful. Housekeeping was incredible. Pool was so much fun. There wasn't one negative about staying here. The busses were there every 10-15 minutes. We NEVER waited for a bus. We stayed at Jamaica building 44. Perfect location. We rented a boat one afternoon and drove around the neighboring waterways. We only had a 5 minute walk across Caribbean Cay to Old Port Royale. Food court was so good. Never crowded and always great cast members. I envy you all and your upcoming trips. Soak up every minute...the Disney hangover hits hard

This will be our first stay at CBR in Aug. We requested a Preferred Room. Has anyone had good luck with the preferred room here? I'm hoping it won't be too noisy.

The last two times we stayed at Coronado, then Movies. I'm hoping we love CBR!

Did you book a preferred? Or did you book a standard and requested a preferred location? If you have booked a standard, it's highly unlikely that you will get a preferred location by request.

If you booked a standard, might I suggest requesting either Jamaica 45 or Aruba 51. Both of those locations are great and are as close as you can get to OPR and the main pool without paying for preferred.

No matter where you are, you won't have to worry about it being noisy. CBR is one of the more peaceful and relaxed resorts that we have stayed. It's our favorite moderate for that reason.

I hope all of you that have upcoming stays at CBR have a wonderful time! I am very jealous as a trip "home" is not in the cards for 2013.

We have payed for a prefered room the past three years and have never heard a peep from anyone or anything, it was always so peaceful and quiet. It suddenly dawned on us that we really dont need to pay for a preffered room as we are always walking over the bridge anyways to the playground and it seemed like no big deal to us...so this year for the first time we chose a standard room, and requested jamaica or aruba. Like previous posters said...4 mins across the bridge...why pay the extra cash unless you want to be right there by the pool which dosnt bother us too much. This truly is a very peacful and relaxing resort... 9 weeks 6 days and counting..

We have stayed at the CBR the past 3 yrs and we love the resort! We plan on comming back in April this year. In the past we only did Disney parks but now that the kids are a little older we want to go to Universal for 2 days. Does anyone know what would be the best way to get there without spending a fourtune. Do you think it would be cheeper to rent a car for the week or take a cab from the carriage house?
