merch in rooms?

Hi all! We're staying at CBR the week of Thanksgiving - first visit with our daughters and they're SO excited!

One of my mother's coworkers recently went to WDW and told her that when they got to their room (not sure where they stayed,) there was merchandise in their room that was available for purchase (kind of like the mini-bar, but merch instead.) So my question is, is this the case at CBR?

Are there toys, etc waiting in the room for you to purchase? I really hope not, because that could create some issues for my kids. Thanks for any info you have!


Amy

Celebration Cakes

I just ordered two cakes that I will pick up at the food court at the Caribbean Beach. Spoke to a very helpful lady at Caribbean Beach. Even though the cake hotline says Shutters Restaurant you do not need a dining reservation. The cakes are made at the Boardwalk Bakery then delivered to Caribbean Beach. They keep the cakes in the food court. The lady I spoke to said they would even deliver the cakes to the room but as we are just arriving that afternoon I opted to pick them up from the food court and as the cakes are for two other people in our party who will be checking in later we don't know the room numbers. Picking them up makes it easier for us.

I did not go with a custom cake as I wanted to know what I was getting and needed to keep them both consitent so one 16 year old does not get a better cake than the other I ordered two Mickey Head cakes one white cake and the other chocolate cake.

I did not know that this was a option at Caribbean Beach and was pleasantly suprised. Now I don't have to take a taxi to pick up cakes at the Boardwalk Bakery, struggle getting two cakes back without breaking them and we can relax have a nice in room Birthday celebration to start our time at Disney.

Here is the link to the Cake Chatter Thread in the Restaurants Forum: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2413710

I hope this helps!

Thanks for the info Amy!

internal buses?

For those of us who are lazy (or worn out), how often does the internal bus run through the resort? Does it leave from the same area as the buses to and from the parks?
Thanks!

Distance from POTCB rooms?

Hello! I am trying to do research for our next trip. Hopefully the week after Thanksgiving. My husband and son would like to stay in the Pirate rooms but my husband doesn't want to be too far from the food court or the bus stop or a pool. I also have a concern. I was wondering about the beds? I have back problems and I have to be careful what I sleep on. I remember the beds at the PORS were wonderful. Are these the same? Please if any one could possible answer my questions, it is greatly appreciated.

I was reading on a blog that the pirate beds are only a box spring and then a pillow top. Does anyone know if this is still the case?

Is that even comfortable?

Anyone want to share your experience with this?

Hi Jules...I was wondering the same thing and called CBR yesterday. It is not available at this time, but the cm said that is "subject to change". We depart for home on 8/25, I'm hoping it is available by then, but who knows.

So if we are staying at CBR we can't get our boarding passes printed?? We did EBCI with SWA but just need to get boarding passes on our departure date.

You can get your boarding passes (we did ebci too!), but not RAC. We will have to check our bags ourselves when we get back to MCO.
