I run every morning so I am really looking forward to the nice path around the lake. We've stayed at Pop and WL and I found the running paths lacking.
We didn't think the walk was long at all either. We have stayed in Jamaica 41 twice, Martinique 23, Martinique 25 and Martinique 26.

I think you'll really enjoy the promenade for running. I've seen lots of folks out there running at all times of the day. I have pictures of the resort in both of my trip reports if you want to have a look around. The most recent are in the "Who Knew Choking..." report.

Thank you!

How long are the bus trips to each of the parks?

First, thank you so much for this informative thread!

Second, we booked our stay at CBR today!! April 30th - May 07th! Yaay!

I actually changed my mind from SSR because the flights we booked required 4 more nights stay and so I rationalized this with "down-grading" to a moderate to afford it and CBR was a total whim. While it's my BF's first trip and my DD's (7 at trip time) 2nd trip to WDW, I"ve stayed at POR before already and wanted something new to us all.

I'm totally pumped to be staying here!! I've drooled over the pool pics you've posted and this resort actually seems nicer than POR! I can't believe it. The pool seems better and there is actual sand beaches. My DD is going to flip with happiness. We're not actually doing the parks...I know, shock, horror! Actually, we have plans for Typhoon Lagoon and mini-golf but that's it for now. We want to REALLY enjoy the resort and relax before our cruise. I just love Disney service and quality. Are we crazy? I'm sure we may decide when we're down there to do one park. I'm thinking maybe DHS, but I"m not telling the BF since he's having a heart-attack on the price already. hehehe...

We've never been to CBR and I have just a couple of questions:

1. Can you see the fireworks from both Aruba and Jamaica?

2. What drinks are available in the fountains for the resort mugs?

3. I booked room only with AirTransat. I don't believe there was an area for special request, or if there was, i missed it. Can I still put special request in? I can just call AirTransat tomorrow, I guess, and even if I don't put in a special request, I'll likely still be happy. I'm easy to please.

We just got back last night. We miss it already. This was our first stay at CBR and we will definately go back again. We loved it! We stayed in a standard room. We had requested Aruba 51, but ended up staying in Jamaica 46, which was really nice and close to the main pool and food. I would stay there again. We did watch the fireworks from the bridge one night, but you really only see the top bit of the fireworks since the trees are so tall. The bus system was great. We never waited for more then 10 minutes for a bus. Can't wait to go back again!

You're welcome!

Once the bus leaves the resort it is:
3 minutes to DHS, 5 to Epcot, 9 to DTD, and 11 to AK and MK.

Also, is there a toaster in the room at CBR? Are there any for free use at the central eating area?

No toasters in the room but there are in the food court. They are located by the condiment table.

That is wonderful! We are just so excited about this trip. DH looked over the photos on this thread and really likes what he sees! I can hardly wait!

We usually buy two half gallons because I'm never sure if the gallon will fit. We have been able to put in two half gallons, some bottled water and canned drinks in with no problems. I do have a picture of the fridge in both of my trip reports. You can click on either one to have a look.

We were just there last week. We got 2 half gallons because they fit on the door and it left plenty of room for every thing else
