Thanks!
They set it up to the right of the pool and Banana Cabana. It's a big open area that is used for outside dining during the day. They setup 10-15 rows of chairs towards the front and then the tables are all moved to the back. But you can still enjoy the movie from the tables and eat, have a drink etc.

Does anyone know how long the main pool will be closed for?
Edit: Nevermind, I just called, and they told me that it's open...must have been a quick closure.

My husband to be and I are staying at CBR for our honey moon in late April. We are more than thrilled that we are able to go. And because we are Disney lovers we want to do everything over the top so we are staying in a Pirate room. My biggest question that I can't seem to get answered is whether or not there are King beds in a pirate room. On the website it says they are an option and but then they put us for a standard room. So if anyone has any idea, please let me know.

WE CAN NOT WAIT TO GET THERE. It feels like forever away but its less than three months away. What makes is even worse is we are getting married the day before we leave. We are just ready for it all to get here.

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?
Has the pool situation improved in Aruba? Also, does anyone know which nights Fantasmic is presented in HS?

Thanks so much for directing me toward this site I have been going back and forth between the webpages on the WDW Theme Park Site trying to figure out the hours for each park when we will there and was starting to assemble a calendar similar to what was on this site. Now I don't need to

Like the map . Yea I meant Hospitality House and have no idea why I thought it was called that-I meant Old Port Royale now that I see the map. In other words the main pool and food court etc. It looks pretty far to walk from Trin S, but they will have a car-or they can take the internal bus I presume.

Does anyone know if the buses returning to CBR, stop first at Old Port? So you can get off and eat/swim.

And also-does it always leave from there-so you can eat breakfast and then jump on a bus to MK for example?

They do not stop there first, however, they do always stop and depart from Old Port Royale at some point. So, you can get off there to eat/swim, and you can get on there after eating/swimming. If you're going to a park, just hop that park's bus. If you're going back to your section of the resort, you can take the internal shuttle if you want to.

Just curious how accurate this is?
don't get me wrong...... I absolutely LOVE this site and read it every day...

However, the wdwinfo has MK open till midnight on Sat Feb 4 and EMH at DHS on Sunday Feb 5.
But...... every other site I've seen has MK closing Sat Feb 4 at 10p and EMH at MK on Sunday (not DHS)

anyone know what is correct?

We were at CBR in October and friends of our were going to be staying in Trinidad South a couple weeks later. I walked from Old Port Royale to the farthest point of Trin South, very leisurely and stopping to take pics along the way and it took a total of 8 minutes. To me, it was not far at all.

Just an FYI.

OK thanks, that's not bad-I can see them walk for breakfast and then jump on the MK bus for example, unless and internal bus comes by-may as well hop on that.

Thanks everyone, very helpfull. They are only there 3 nights so not much time to get used to the bus route. I will pass this on.

Sounds like on park return-just stay on all the way around the resort bus stops until Old Port if your planning to eat or swim.
