We haven't been to WDW in 6+ years so it's all new to me again.

Thanks!
It is my understanding the Pirate rooms are not in the preffered room area. And yes you can book a room that is Preferred but not Pirate themed.

The pirate themed rooms are NOT preferred. They're actually the furthest rooms from the main pool and food court. Even so, it's only about an 8 minute walk for us. Preferred rooms have a modest Finding Nemo theme to them (as do all the other non-pirate rooms at the resort). I'd recommend you rebook a non-pirate, preferred room if it's important to you to be close to the main pool and food court.

Campfire & movie times in August?

I haven't been able to find an answer to this question. Does anyone know what time the nightly campfires are held at the beach? I'd imagine it probably changes depending on the time of year. I think the movie starts at 9pm each day. I'm looking particularly at the month of August so I can develop a rough schedule before we leave.

I have a quick question. I booked through our AAA travel agent and had her put in a request for 1st floor in a building near food court (doesn't have to be a preferred building) for medical issues. What do you think my chances of getting our request? Do you think I should have her put in the exact medical issue to have a better shot of getting at least the 1st floor?

Well I messed up. And now only the Pirate theme rooms are avail. for our dates.

I guess walking 8 min. for a soda or coffee or whatever in the morning won't be that bad. Looking on the bright side, it'll help burn off the extra calories right?

I don't think an exact medical description will help, your best bet is to book preferred. You can call and make a request but there is no guarantee you'll get it.

So, from what I have read here, Martinique 24, 25 and 26 are prefered and cost more but what about Martniique 22 and 23? They seem close to the Food Court area, and to a bus stop.
Is there a surcharge for those buildings?
And if I want to request one of those buildings, or any building, can I just call with my request?

Hi! We just returned from our third stay at the Caribbean, loved it!

The campfire with marshmellow roast starts around 7 pm, it is located on the beach between the main pool and Trinidad North.

The movies started at 9 pm each night last week.

Hope this helps!
Amy

There is no surcharge for Martinique 22 or 23. Also, take a look at Jamaica 45 and Aruba 51. They both are actually closer than Martinique 22 and 23. Jamaica 45 is our favorite and it's a beautiful 3-4 minute walk across the bridge.

It is best to call the main reservations line and add your building request to your reservation.

Is this just marshmellows or smors?
Do we need to bring our own marshmellow/ chocolate and gram crackers?
Thanks

My main concern is getting on the 1st level, since CBR does not have elevators. Being as close to the food court as possible would be a bonus.

If you want smor's you will need to bring the gram crackers and chocolate. They provide sticks and marshmallows.

Then I would list 1st floor as your only request. Then when you check in, if you're 1st floor but way out there you can always ask if there's a 1st floor closer to OPR.

You'd be surprised how many people request 2nd floor even though there's no elevator because they are afraid of the Florida critters getting in the room on the ground floor. We request 2nd floor because my wife feels that way.
