When I added my last day to my reservation(11/23-12/1) I asked the CM about the fridges and she said they would be done with getting them into all the rooms by my trip time.Today I received a letter from Disney stating that they have had to disconnect fridges due to issues until they can replace them. I am counting on having a fridge for breakfast items. Soo frustrating.

Hi all,

We arrived on Saturday. I think we got a little bit of pixie dust because we got preferred building in Martinique with water view. Unfortunately we did not get a working fridge. We had placed a garden grocer order so the cm gave us the credit. I didn't need to ask for it. We love the resort. It's beautiful and lush as people described. Bus service has been great!! We got lucky a few times. We saw our bus approaching so we all ran for it. Lol! We were probably funny to watch but hey we got on the bus and at the park on time. Yippee!
I'm not overly impressed with the food at port royal (imo). I've found the staff very friendly and helpful.
We r loving our magic bands. We haven't had any issues. My daughter lost her band at blizzard beach. I did too but we noticed it fly off so they got a diver to go and get It. The diver found 3 more bands while retrieving mine. Beware to all the force from the slides causes the bands to come off!! The cm's have gone above and beyond to order my daughter another pink band instead of having grey for the rest of the trip.
We having a great time! Bye for now.

We just booked our stay for April 26-May 4 at CBR! It will be our first time to stay there (have done POR and CSR previously). Can't wait!

Checked in yesterday! Wait was the same even if you did online checkin. Bell services allowed Orlando Crib Rental to leave our rental crib with them which was nice. Really feels like you are in the islands. We requested first floor Jamaica 45, but are in 46 ! Closer to bus stop so we don't mind. If you have any mobility issues, this is not the resort for you! Really big and spaced out. Sad to say we did not have a fridge . Requested one for medication and it was delivered 2 hours later. Bags took 4 hours to arrive from magical express. For a quick service lunch or dinner, food court is not bad....similar to other quick service restaurants. We are in a corner king room and it is similar in size to king room at grand Floridian. Room updated to white linens and nemo bed runner. They do not provide lotion in the rooms. Coffee maker uses disc pods. Very limited on outlets, bring a power strip. Longest wait for bus was 20 min. Let me know if any other questions

I check in on the 21st of November and have not received a letter. Hopefully it was sent to you by mistake. We need one for medication so I will request one if I have to.

I was away from this thread a few days completing my Disney Parks Moms panel round 2 questions and video and it seems like I missed out on a lot of good reports. Yay to all of you who received a little bit of pixie dust and were given room upgrades. It's alway good to hear great reviews.

Does anyone know how many connecting rooms this resort has? I know it is not guaranteed, just trying to figure out my odds.

Not sure how many exactly...we requested connecting rooms for our trip last week and did not get them. We were placed next door to the family we were traveling w though, but rooms not connected.
