If you have your luggage with you, Bell Services can take you and your bags to your room after check in. If you don't have your checked bags with you and just have your carry-ons you can take the internal shuttle. Also when you check out you can have Bell Services pick up you and your luggage and drop you off at the Custom House. We have not had to go to the Custom House except for check-in and check out.

Also, every village plus Old Port Royale has it's own bus stop for the parks. You are never far from one.

We had a crazy experience as far as getting back to the Custom House goes. They came and grabbed our luggage, and told us to make our own way back to the Custom House! I didn't know that was not normal until we were back home.

Thanks so much for your help!

Early Arrival

In the past we have driven up the same day, and have gotten to the resort around noon, room was always ready. This time we are driving up tonight, staying at downtown Disney, then moving to our resort in the morning, will we be able to use the pool etc...until our room is ready, I am sure it will not be ready until the afternoon, we plan on arriving around 9am.
Very Excited!!! Car is loaded and getting ready to make the trip up!!

Does anyone have a pic of the fridge at CBR or know if a gallon of milk will fit inside? I've looked at thr CBR pic thread and didn't see one, but I may have missed it.

Thanks!

Two quick questions

1. Are the stairs very slippery when climbing them?


2 Are the buildings well lit when coming back at night especially the stair cases and are there any pics?


Thanks

I can answer the second question. The buildings are very well lit at night. I wouldn't feel unsafe, or worry about tripping.

If you take the shelf out a gallon will fit. You can also put 2 or 3 half gallons on the door.

No they are not slippery at all. And as maxiesmom said the buildings are very well lit at night.

I was wondering if anyone can tell me more about the pirate rooms

1. Has anyone found the beds comfortable any pics of the mattress ?

2. We will have a car so could we just drive to the old port royale for food or to the main pool? If we found the walk long with little ones?


Thanks

They are assigned a few days out. However, the CMs can still shuffle things around a bit, if someone arrives before you and wants what they have pre-assigned to you.

Query about online check in. Never done this. So, I have 5 day basic passes that I need to get upgraded once we arrived at WDW. Can I still check in online and then do that.

For the upgrade of the passes - anyone know if I can do that at the Resort or do I need to go to the parks.

The passes are Basic - I want to add the parkhopper / water park options.
