This place looks beautiful!
The CBR has such a relaxing feel to it. Our trips are for 10 days and on two of those days, we spend time just chillin' at the resort before heading to Downtown Disney. When you see those beach chairs and hammocks, it seems like you are in a whole different world.

Thanks for the awesome pics. May cannot come fast enough! Really looking forward to this surprise 5th b-day trip for DGS. He has no idea we are going and will not know until my DIL arrives with him, and DGD to meet me, at Orlando airport. Too exciting!

How fun! We surprised our son with a trip this past August. We had originally booked for May but I started a new job (the same week as we were supposed to be at WDW) and didn't think we'd be able to go back until 2009. When Disney put out the End of the Summer promo, my new boss told me to go ahead and book it. We drive (14 hours) so we just knew that our 11 year old would pick up on it. When we got about 30 minutes from Disney, we told him. We are now, officially, the best parents in the world!

Have a great trip and enjoy the CBR.

Thanks for all the great pics. I am getting super excited for our Sept trip. I didn't know if we made the right decision picking CBR b/c we have been staying at POLY for the last few years and I just LOVE LOVE POLY. But these pics are great. I love the hammocks and dd is going to love the pools and playgrounds. Keep the pics coming, I am 6 months away and can't wait to go!

Here are a couple of shots of the entrance. Try to hit the red light if you're driving and want to take this shot. Luckily no one was behind me.






Evening shots while watching my kids swim at the small pool by our room...
