Not sure what you mean by bus "strategy". There is a bus stop for every "village" and Old Port Royale. The order of the stops is determined by where the bus enters the property. There are 2 entrances the bus can come in. Even if you're the first stop on the loop for pick up, your friends will be exiting the property to your park of choice in less than 8 minutes per our last trip.

If they use the Disney Magical Express, after check-in there is an internal resort bus that will take them from the Custom House to their village. About 2 hours after your arrival, Bell Services will deliver their luggage to your room. There is no luggage allowed on the internal bus. Upon check-out, they can call bell services and they will come pick up them and their luggage and take them to the Custom House.

You betcha! Our favorite thing to do was get a drink from the Banana Cabana and slip into the hot tub while DS swam. What an awesome way to end a long day of having fun!!

Thank you, sounds like the stops are not too long, well they will have a car so the checkin will be OK.

Was wondering about the H House from Trin S-is that a reasonable walk, or is it a bus that goes all the way around to get there?

Just wondering if anyone else will be there in August? We'll be there from August 17 through the 28th. I'll have my lime green Mickey head on my bag, so please say hi. We've requested Jamaica man, so maybe we can be village mates!!!

Seriously? Ughh I wish I knew the pool was closed our stay. This happened LAST time at CSR too. I have bad Disney luck. My daughter will not be happy with me, lol. The only two times we spring for a mod and pools are closed both times. LOL

The other pools at CBR should be open though...there are a bunch of them-1 at each "village", and they are pretty good size!

Just back from an amazing week at CBR. A few things:
There is free wifi in all the rooms. I meant to take a pic of the flyer but forgot. I actually couldn't get wifi at the pool, but rooms were fine. We were in Aruba.
I had read that all the pools were heated, but Aruba was definitely not. We had to head over to the main pool to swim. It was nicely warmed. DD jumped in at Aruba and said she couldn't feel her legs.
There are pool activities every afternoon from 12 to 5 for the kiddos. Games, dance parties, marshmallow roasting on the beach at 5 p.m. My kids participated alot because we were hanging around the resort a bunch this trip. They had fun. BUT . . . if you are looking for a quiet swim, no dice. The pool activities are loud. We could hear them from the Aruba beach.
There were also movies every night near the pool. We didn't watch but did walk by once. They had a bunch of short pool chairs lined up in rows in front of a large blow up screen over to the right of the pool bar near the fountain.
Conferences: I was looking for this information before we left, but couldn't find it. We were there for a conference and wanted to know about buses. They assigned all the conference attendees to one village and the bus stop was a roped off area in the parking lot for the village.
OPR food court was fine. Only disappointment, none of the bays offered Mickey waffles for breakfast. May be because one of the bays was under refurbishment.
Also, the back entrance by Jamaica is definitely for buses only. However, my Garmin tried to take me in that way every time. Probably why people are seen trying to turn in there.
Overall an amazing week at CBR. Can't wait until we can return again!

Hi everyone!! I'll be arriving to CBR in 5 days and I'm wondering if I'll have trouble charging my electronic devices (camera, cell phone...) Does anyone know what kind of plugs are there in the rooms? Do they offer plug adapters?

I am not sure where you are coming from but they are standard 3 prong US outlets. If you have a lot of items to charge I suggest bringing a surge/power strip.
