Great news! Since my DH is 6'4'' and I am 5'11' the CBR has never been an option due to the beds!

I know this thread is older but did anyone ever find out if CBR was actually getting a Murphy bed? We are due to stay at the Poly next year but might switch back to CBR if we can to save some money.

It's been rumored, but it has not been announced/confirmed yet.

Talking

Bigger beds are great! We stayed there a few years ago, and that was one of my criticisms. DH and I are about average to below average sized adults, and we couldn't sleep in those tiny beds. I'm used to an Eastern king sized bed!
Did someone say when the refurb would be complete by? I just found out we are going in mid June 2014, and that is one of the options through the sports travel agent. (My daughter will be playing in a national volleyball tournament at the ESPN Sports Complex - woot woot!)

I have not heard of a completion date yet. But if history repeats itself, they will start on one village and fully complete it then move to the next. So you'll have to check as your trip gets closer to see which villages have been completed and then try to request one of them.

I hope so. I really want to book a pirate room but DH and I are big people and will never actually do it until there are queen beds in those rooms.

Here now at CBR. As a veteran of many many CBR stays I think the rooms are great. I don't particularly care for the bedspreads at POFQ. CBR is still my favorite and our room is in great shape. I will reserve judgment on the new rooms till I see it for myself.

I can't remember, but does anyone know how long the rehab at POR took? Might give a general idea of how long this project may take. Fingers crossed by October most will be complete. After a disastrous last stay at POR I would really like to try out CBR again. Stayed at CBR in 2004 and absolutely loved it!! The only thing that disappointed us was the bed sizes. My 6'4" hubby hates double beds his feet dangle off the end. We had a king size bed then, but now with kids that's not an option anymore.

Someone over on the CBR thread said that they spoke with a CM when they were there recently. They were told that the murphy beds were coming.

POR took a year to refurb. On our August 2011 trip, it was just underway. Then in August 2012, they opened the last refurbished bayou rooms a few days after we left.

Initially, I was told that it would begin in April. No one has heard otherwise so I guess it will still start then.
