Room requests

We will be staying at CBR for the first time 2/11-2/18. After reading this thread, which we are so happy to have found due to the enormous amount of useful info, we are wondering if we should make a room request or just let the chips fall and hope we'll get an "upgrade." This is our third trip, first time in 2006 at SOG and again in 2010 at POP. We love the extras and the "Disney vibe" you get staying on Disney property and would never go back to SOG. We loved POP but with two boys now 9 and 12 we thought we could use a little more space. It's the first time for us on the DDP (free!) and we are very excited about that! Another first, we decided to drive this time from Maryland instead of flying. Wish us luck!

Does that include carry-on? We'll be using Disney's Magical Express for our big luggage, but we will each have a small carry-on and I'll have my laptop bag. How does that work?

Bell Services will take you and your carry-ons in a van directly to your room.

At CBR now

Hello all,

After nearly 10 months of waiting we checked into CBR. The reason we chose this resort over the other moderates was because of the fantastic pool area.

The first thing we find out when we check in is that the fantastic pool area will be closed for 3 of our 7 nights!!! No advanced notice given! We were a little disapointed and considered switching resorts but really the reason we did not pick the others was due to the pool. A very nice CM was willing to let us move to POR or POFQ but in the end we decided to stay put after all there was a smaller pool right outside our room.

Just got back from a full day at DHS and the kids want to go for a swim in this very convienent pool out side our rooms door. Take them down to the pool for a swim my son jumps in and gets out very quickly saying the pool is too cold. I put my foot in the pool and the water feels like it is barely 70 degrees. These pools are supposed to be heated to 80. Speak to front desk they say they will have someone look at the pools heater. I just saw a comment from another poster and they mentioned that last week the Aruba pool was too cold for swimming so obviously Disney is not heating this pool for what ever reason.

On the bright side free wi-fi in all rooms now.

Sorry for this rant but this pool thing has just got me all worked up. The main difference I see between a Value and a Moderate for me is the Nicer pool and the Hot Tub which I paid money for and for half of my trip I am not getting to benefit for what I paid extra money for.

Also as a FYI they have something planned for the Aruba 53 54 area as currently they have the entire parking area closed off and are erecting large tents for some sort of private event. They also have areas mapped out for transportation for this event. Any one know what is going on and when it is happening?

Sorry to hear about the pool troubles!! I hope that things get better for the remaining days of your vacation!

As for the Aruba thing, I think a previous poster mentioned that she was there for a conference and that they had an area similar to what you described setup for them and the buses.

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!
Mickey Waffles are being served in the Shutter's Kitchen beyond the Deli, because the normal shop is under refurbishment.

Great seeing these current posts since we are leaving in 2.5 weeks. I was going to ask for Aruba or Jamaica based on stuff I've read here but the Aruba pool situation sounds terrible.
