Does the Laundry room close at the resort?

I'm having difficulty finding time in the day to do laundry and figured that the only time that I can go do a load of Laundry is after we get back from the park late in the evening.

No, it does not close. Although we try to not do laundry while at WDW, I have found that doing a load or two during our "Resort Day" is perfect. We hit the parks pretty hard without midday breaks. So we always have planned a day or two to sleep in, hang by the pool, explore the resort. Just an idea.

We did get the pirate room and thought it was a great room for our lil ones and us big kids

My kids (the one going down the slide on the left) loved the pirate play area in the kiddie pool section.

No it doesn't. We did the same thing. I put the laundry on late one night after we got back from the park and the kids fell asleep. It was close to midnight. I then found a nearby hammock on the beach to wait for them to be done - which wasn't such a good idea. Next thing I knew, I woke up in the hammock around 3am!

I know that others have already answered your question but I did want to add that you'll need your room key in order to access the laundry room so remember to take it with you.

Funny story, but it happened at Port Orleans French Quarter, not at CBR.

It's a few minutes before midnight, I put laundry into 2 different washers in the empty laundry room. I grab my book and go directly outside the laundry room doors to a bench. I get comfortable, I'm enjoying my book for a minute or so and then the lawn sprinklers go on and immediately soak me.

I was on vacation, so it was pretty funny, but when I returned to the room to change I had to try to convince my wife I didn't fall into the pool!

We just came back from CBR (6/7-6/14)! Everything was great! We were in Jamaica bldg 46 facing the courtyard. Very quiet. Our DS (11) loved the pool & joined in the pool activities. We also took some time on the paddle boat. No issues with bus transportation. The only thing I might give low points to is the food court. I enjoy Pop's food court better. Great housekeeper

At CBR right now. Sitting by the main pool, kids are loving it. We just got off our cruise this morning and it's like we're still in the Bahamas with the theme and steel drum music. It was a shock having to pay for our lunch in the food court, lol. Did online check in and our room was ready at 11 when we got here- super easy and fast. I can see some wear and tear on the building exteriors but nothing to really complain about. I do wish there were more umbrellas by the pool.
