I've never stayed at CBR, but I did walk around the resort for about an hour early last year. Here are some of the pics I took then!























I can't wait to stay here in 2.5 weeks!

We're in a corner room and have a door that would connect to the next room if we had that one too. Building 45 :-)

Request Location in Preferred Room Category?

Hello,

We will be staying at CBR in November in a preferred room and was wondering if there is any benefit in requesting a particular location within that category. I would like to be as close to the Food Court as possible. And, I guess a bus stop - although they seem to be all around the resort. Not sure, what else would be important.

I have been enjoying all the great information from all the many experts on this thread

Thanks,
Marie

Info

Hey everyone,
I am so excited to go to CBR and Disney for the first time I have never been on a trip before ever. I will have 2 kids (11,14) We will be going 5th January -11th of January 2014. This thread has been so helpful but have a few questions.

Where can you see Epcots firework or can you from the resort?

Anyone hear of when the Magic bands will be used in January?

Is there anything that anyone can recomend we make sure we bring with us to have in the resort or at Disney?

Any tips or anything would be great as I have no clue what to expect, what to do, how the bus sytem works, nothing lol !!!

We've stayed preferred twice and were in Martinique 24 and then Martinique 26. Bldg. 26 is super close to Old Port Royale so it took us about 2 minutes to walk over. There are bus stops in each village so you're never far from one. When we were in Bldg. 26, we were actually closer to the OPR stop so we used that one instead of the Martinique stop.

Boy are you in for a treat! Disney and the CBR!

We have watched the higher Epcot fireworks from the courtyard at Old Port Royale, from the Martinique beach and from Barbados.

I've not heard any reports of the Magic Bands being used in January yet but I'd suggest that you keep watching the Disboards as I am sure that someone will post if they hear anything.

The number one tip that I give new WDW visitors is to know that there's no way to see and do everything in just one trip. Take it all in and have a lot of fun. Annnnnnd, get ready to plan trip number two 'cause you're going to become addicted to Disney.

The bus system is very easy to use. Simply go to any of the CBR village bus stops and wait for a bus to come along. The buses state very clearly where they are headed. It will be on the front:



and on the side:



The buses will take you to the parks (and to Downtown Disney and the water parks) and will drop you off very near the entrance to the parks. The bus stops at the parks will be numbered. There will be signage that will list the number to the CBR bus stop. The park bus stops look something like this:



The CBR bus stop number will not be the same at each park so you'll have to look at the sign to find out the correct bus stop.

It may sound complicated but it's really not. My 79 year old mother had no problem figuring out the system and using it to meet up with us later in the day.

If you have any other specific questions, feel free to post them. Somebody here will know the answers.
