We checked out all the villages when we rented our sea racer right after we arrived, and I liked Jamaica the best as well.

I liked the color and the gingerbread type details on the building, not to mention the lovely bridge across the lake.

The other "take your laptop" thread had me thinking.

I have a Dell Inspiron (yes, it's pink, I'm just that nerdy), and it has a 15.4" screen. Will this fit in the safe at CBR? I have a combination lock that I could use to secure it to the wall or the sink or something, if not.

Thanks, CBR Fans! Just a few more days for us!

I doubt it would fit in the safe.

Do the tv's at CBR have the white-red-yellow plug for video game systems? (JFYI, we have 8 nights with only 4 theme park days, so lots of extra time)

Are the pirate rooms in Trinidad South only or are there some in Trinidad North?

Yes, my kids took a plug in game and used it at CBR last month!

Here's a picture of the new televisions. Don't know if you can see the hook ups very well.

Thanks for the responses and picture on my tv question. My kids will be happy. They are not nap people, so DH and I can keep them entertained while we rest.

I've posted this question under transportation, but maybe some CBR fan can answer it for me. I'll be at the CBR in March and am thinking about using a towncar service for our return to the airport. For anyone who has done this while staying at the CBR, will the drivers pick you up in your village parking lot or do you need to meet them at the Custom House? Also, do they drop you off at curbside check-in at MCO? Any recommendations for a particular company? Thanks! Can't wait for March. I surprised my college senior with a mother-daughter trip during her break!

We haven't used the town car service but have used a private taxi and we were picked up at the Custom House because we had to store our luggage until pick up time; we had a flight later in the evening.

You'll probably need to speak to the town car company on their policy.

We were dropped off curb side closest to SW check in.

Hope your daughter enjoys her surprise

If you have any questions please ask.
Okay, so some of the Trinidad rooms are refurbished, but not all. Then is there still a possibility of being placed into a non-refurbed room, or have those rooms been taken out of the inventory to be worked on? I'd really, really like to be in one of the new Nemo rooms. Leaving in about 10 days!

topherSC - Why were you moved to a different room?
