Well my wisdom tooth is gone. It hurt but not too badly so bring on the Disney trip. Only 51 days to go!!!

I think you can get a damp/moldy room anywhere in Florida. Our second stay at CSR we had a pretty bad room. It was only for one night so I put up with it. This was also right after the room rehab

Does anyone know the options given when doing online check in? Am I better off making a more specific request or just going with the online check in system. I'd like to be close to OPR and first floor. And can't afford to upgrade to prefered.

IIRC the online choices are limited to what's on a menu. I think I'd phone well ahead of arrival and make my specific requests, in order of importance to me.

We are going to be staying at CBR in Jan 2014. We have decided to pay the extra for the preferred rooms.

Just wondering: If you are paying the extra do you get to pick which village you are in or do you just get either Martinique or Trinidad North?

I don't think it matters to us either way but I was just curious. We stayed at CBR back in 2006 and we booked reservations to Jamaica and we were disappointed when we checked in that we were actually in Barbados. We decided to avoid that this time and just pay the extra to get the preferred buildings.

The resort is lovely but none of us enjoyed the looonnnggg walk around the lake to get to the food court so this time we would rather be closer to it.

We stayed at CBR in may 2013 and sept 2012. We were in Martinique last sept. we paid for a preferred room both times, definitely worth it. We requested Martinique in May and got it. You can request a specific area, but it won't be guaranteed. There are so many buildings in both, so I wouldn't think it would be a problem.

If you book preferred, you will be in the village of Martinique or Trinidad North. There are several buildings in Martinique but the preferred are Bldgs. 26, 25 and 24. All buildings in Trinidad North are preferred.

Just had an interesting chat session with a Disney rep about the new design of the rooms at CBR. I forgot to copy it before I closed it, but in general she said that it was being changed because of AoA. Now that there are Nemo rooms there they don't need a redundant theme at CBR. She also said they wanted the rooms at CBR to look clean and fresh, whatever that means.

Thanks for the update. I think that's great, I can imagine a breezy white theme going well with the Caribbean.

I haven't been there yet, but I'm really looking forward it. I only hope they replace the green carpet before I get there.

When I asked while chatting they said there was nothing in the refurbishment section of the site about the changeover at all, so they couldn't give me any information. The CM I chatted with mostly knew about the change from people who had been at CBR recently since there is nothing in the system about it. So I can't help with a time frame.

Where abouts can the pictures of the two "mock" rooms be found?
