It is a lot of concrete. I sat poolside a couple evenings watching my son in the pool and it was quite hot.

Question

If I give a pillowcase to the front desk, will they have the characters sign it and put it in my room?

TIA

There are no characters at the resorts, so I can't imagine how they'd be able to do this very easily.

They'd have to have someone physically transport it to a park, make sure it gets autographed, and then physically transport it back. I'd have to imagine they won't do this, as it would be a lot of man-hours, not to mention taking someone away from his/her assigned job duties.

Sorry!

This is a guess, but maybe about 60" wide x 70" in height. We hung a little banner that said "Celebrate" and it went from one side to the other and hung in the middle. Don't forget to bring tape, and to take everything down before you leave.

I like hanging something in the window, we can spot our room from across the way. DS likes it too!

Any chance there is a barbecue grill on the Caribbean Beach property? We've stayed at the resort before but I never even thought about a grill or picnic area at the resort. Our softball team will be at the resort for a week in July/August for the USSSA girls fastpitch World Series and the parents were thinking about a group cookout one evening. Anybody have any info?

As far as I know/remember, there are no grills on the CBR grounds.

Just saw an article about coconut post cards they have at CBR. Has anyone ever sent one of these back home? Sounds like a cute idea!

Thanks all for your suggestions and answers to my question about the Laundry. I am guessing that I should just take a whole roll of Quarters and laundry detergent?
