I am so jealous of everyone that is checking in to CBR soon! It's only been 10 weeks since we were last there and I'm already itching to go back. Come on October 2013!!

I just registered for these message boards and already I want to say a giant THANK YOU to everyone here for all of the wonderful information!!

I am in the process of booking a trip to WDW for my family (me and my husband and our 3 yr old son, and my parents). We are wanting to stay at the CBR and have found the best prices via FunJet vacations. Here is a question that I have -- the hotel/air package that we've found includes a pirate room. But, from everything I've read here, those aren't that great of a location and with a 3 year old, I don't want a 10+ minute walk to the food court. I can upgrade to a "preferred location" for ~$300 (for 6 nights). My understanding is that the preferred location would be closer to the OPR (maybe in Martinique?). But -- would I be better off just booking the pirate room and then requesting a room in Aruba 51 or Jamaica 45?

Thanks everyone for all of your help -- I will be checking in here often!!

The Pirate Rooms are only located in Trinidad South. Personally, if being close to the food court is important to you, book the preferred location and pay the additional cost. If you're willing to take your chances on location, all of the standard rooms are closer to the food court than Trinidad South where the Pirate Rooms are located. No matter where you are, though, CBR is a wonderful resort! Have a great trip, and welcome to the DIS!

Barbados is just as far a walk to food court than Trinidad South. You may not get exact bldg. you request but usually asking for Aruba or Jamaica is not a problem. Then you just walk across a bridge to the food court.

If you book non-preferred, then your cost should decrease because the Pirate rooms cost more than the other non-preferred sections.

Actually not sure why your cost would increase $300.00 for preferred because the Pirate rooms cost just as much or more according the the 2012 rates.
