We have stayed at CB five times and the last few have been due to the Disney races and CB being a host hotel. Our last stay in February was quite good. We booked the pirate themed room and the location was no problem. I actually like to have a bit of distance from the main pool so we do not get any of the noise. In any case, the resortis really nice with a laid back feel and you will enjoy your stay.

Stuck on the marshmallows again....

I was wondering with the marshmallow roasting...I read someplace that they sold kits. Would we be able to get a bag of our own marshmallows to bring? I was thinking if I was going to order from garden grocer then I can get a bag and we can use them a few times. Maybe buy the kit once to get whatever approved roasting sticks they use..then go back down if we are on property a few of the other days. Just wondering....thanks!!

Based on our visit last October....
Marshmallows are free, you can have as many as you want- the only requirment was you use please and thank you with the CM handing them out. The sticks are bamboo type that all got put into a bucket of water when done and I asume put into the fire or thrown away.

One of the reasons our family loves CBR is that it's so quiet near the rooms -- and I love starting the morning off by filling my refillable mug with coffee at Old Port Royale and strolling around the lake as I wake up.... the resort is so beautiful, and it's so quiet and peaceful in the morning.... I just can't wait! 6 more days!

Wondering about the Buses

Other then the internal bus around the resort...what ARE the buses final destinations? I know we can't take a bus from CBR to GF....but do all the buses go directly to the transportation center? Or are there buses that go directly to epcot, AK, etc? What about DTD? We are doing one "hotel day" inwhich I signed DS up for the pirate cruise....then I thought maybe doing DTD before going to CR for dinner. Just wondered how the buses worked. Thanks!!

You can get a bus from CBR to DTD,
You can get a bus to any park and DTD, you CAN NOT get a bus to another resort or the Boardway where ESPN is, but I its so close its a $6 cab ride

This is really something that alot of people don't understand about CBR! Even though it is the largest WDW resort and holds the most people it never feels that way. We stayed at CBR Christmas 2008. The resort was completely full, but other than the food court at meal time it never felt full. We ate at off times so that was never a problem. Always quiet and peaceful. Very relaxing. No better place to stay for those who want a little quiet time on their Disney vacation.

There is a direct bus to Magic Kingdom.
There is a direct bus to Epcot.
There is a direct bus to Disney's Hollywood Studios.
There is a direct bus to Animal Kingdom and Blizzard Beach.
There is a direct bus to Downtown Disney and Typhoon Lagoon.
There is no such thing as a bus to to the Transportation & Ticket Center from CBR or from any Disney owned-and-operated resort (unless there are special and very very rare circumstances).

If you want to go somewhere, simply go to the nearest bus stop. There is a stop at each village, plus a stop at Old Port Royale. Wait at the stop and as a bus approaches you'll see that bus' destination prominently on the front of the bus (as well as smaller on each side). So if you want to go to Magic Kingdom and the bus says "EPCOT" then don't get on, you'll wait 'til you see a bus that says "MAGIC KINGDOM" on the electronic sign on the front of the bus.

I'm more concerned about noise and any walking/running of kids......only cuz I know that DW will complain....so would it be better to get a room on the 2nd floor as opposed to the 1st floor?

Does anyone have any experience with the bikes on the CBR property?

I was planning on doing a "biking" excursion around the CBR resort with the family in the morning. DS8 and DD4 don't know how to bike on 2-wheels yet....do they have bikes to accommodate kids that don't know how to ride bikes yet ( like 3-wheeled bikes )?

If not...I see pictures of those 4-person Surrey bikes for rental at the CBR...so I assume I can rent those.

What about the trails and paths that we can bike on...any thoughts on that?
