Are there any buildings in Aruba or Jamaica that do not face or back on to a parking lot. Wondering if you could request a building were you knew for sure that you would not have a parking lot view. Any other view is just fine.

I think Jamaica 45 & 42 and Aruba 55 & 52 (or even Barbados 15) would be the best non-preferred bet for not facing a parking lot and being very close to the beach. http://www.wdwinfo.com/resortmaps/cbrmap.htm

Thanks Momof2Disneyboys. That was just the information I was looking for. I also wanted to ask you a couple more minor questions:

Do they pipe in music around the pool area and the resort in general and
Are the areas outside the room and paths pretty clean around the resort?

You're welcome!

You know, I'm not sure about the music. It used to be piped through the island, but I'm not sure it was there this time. . . Maybe someone else knows. . . I am pretty sure we still heard it at OPR and the pool.

The outside of the rooms and paths were exceptionally clean on our recent trip (January). I did notice this and commented on it to DH. Whenever we would come back to the room mid-day they were always hosing down the outside of the doors and the paths. One day we were in the room taking a break and we heard them cleaning outside of our room with a pressure washer. When we were ready to leave we had to slowly open our door and make a break for it!!

Momof2disneyboys,

Thanks again for your reply. I am glad to hear that they are so diligent about hosing everthing down outside the door and paths and don't mind dodging water myself as long as the areas around the room look nice and clean!

I am researching and gathering information on CSR just in case that ends up being our choice for our next trip!

I am wondering which area the standard view pirate rooms are in? Are any of these close to the main pool?

Thanks in advance.

No.

100% of the Pirate rooms are in Trinidad South, which is the village farthest from Old Port Royale, the complex that has the main pool, food court, etc.

The music has been hit and miss on Caribbean Cay. Personally I think even the parking lot views are great at CBR. With all the landscaping it is hard to even see the cars in the parking lot.

Finally!!!

Just got done reading ALL 51 pages of this fourth installment of the tread and am SOOOOO excited for our upcoming trip... In DECEMEBER!!! Ahh it feels like forever!

Has anyone had good/bad/otherwise experience with the Kids Nite Out babysitter service? I don't leave my daughter (2) with anyone, but the thought of enjoying a night solo in Disney with my DH makes me want to budge!

Thanks to all for the input, opinions & GREAT pictures!!!

That's OK, enjoy the summer where you are, and by the time you're fed up with wintry weather, it'll be time to get ready!

We're going in Dec, too!

Hi, I would also like to know the answer to that question.
If I have a pirate room in Trinidad South ...should I ask for a specific
location or it shouldn't matter..???

Thanks so much

Yoli

Ha - the only way to "enjoy" the summer's on The Cape are to be a tourist!

I was just thinking about that though, when the cold comes to settle, we'll be jet-setting to Sunny (fingers crossed) Orlando!

I don't think it really matters. You know you won't have a water view room because you didn't reserve/pay for one. The only thing I can suggest is to request Building 34 or Building 35 ... they are (slightly) closer to Old Port Royale than the other four Trinidad South buildings.
