Hi, we returned a week ago from the CBR.

The internal bus picks up from the same bus stops as the buses to and from the parks.

I don't know how oftern they run as the only time we used the internal bus was when we checked in.

Hope this helps a little,
Amy

It runs continually around the resort. So it should come as often, or more often, than the park buses. Yes, it stops at all the same bus stops.

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.
We haven't stayed in a POTC room yet, but we did walk from the Trinidad South bus stop (which is right in the middle of TS) to OPR and it took us 7 minutes, at a leisurely pace.

Yes, you can get your boarding passes printed right at OPR at the concierge desk!

When I was at CSR a few years ago there was a van that took people checking in to their rooms. Is that no longer true? Do you now have to take the internal bus to get to your room upon arrival? How about getting to the Hospitality House to check out your last day? The DME check in desk is still in the Hospitality House isn't it?

The van took us & our luggage to our room upon arrival and from our room when we were ready to check out. (Both times we stayed there - 2005 & 2009) I'm pretty sure it's still the same! When we checked in we were told we couldn't take the internal shuttle with luggage.

Question How do you pronounce it?

A silly question, but...

How do you pronounce "Caribbean" Beach Resort?

Do you say Ca-RIB-ean or Cari-BEE-an ?

How do they pronounce it when they say "Welcome to Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort" upon your arrival?

Just curious! I want to be saying it right when I get there in August! I tend to say Ca-RIB-ean, but have noticed other people saying it the other way. (I think I do say Pirates of the CariBEEan, but for some reason the resort comes out easier the other way.)

I say the latter. But, EVERYONE says it differently, including the people working at CBR.

Looking for best room location

Hi there- I looked, but couldn't find, for where would be the best building or area to request if we wanted to be close to the food court/ main pool area. Sorry if this has been asked a million times.

That would be a "preferred" room and it costs extra. (Martinique or Trinidad North)

Yes, there are POTC rooms on the first and second floor. All of them being in Trinidad South. If you want a 1st floor, you would want to make that request on your reservation. There is a bus stop right in the middle of TS, so you will be close to one.

In my experience the bus drivers and all CM's have pronounced it Ca-RIB-ean. That's also how I say it. Opposite of how I (and I think most people) say Pirates of the Cari-BEE-an!

We arrived on the DME bus (without our luggage). After checking in about 10:30 am, we were told to use the internal bus vs the bell services van. They may have told us to take the internal bus due to bell services was busy with morning pick ups for the guests leaving. We didn't have our luggage since we arrived on the DME bus, it was delivered later by bell services directly to our room.

Sorry about the confusion,
Amy
