Thanks much for pointing out this information about the bus stop phones- I haven't really seen anyone else mention this when talking about the bus situation at CBR.

You're welcome. The only time I have ever seen anyone use them was on our Downtown Disney day. There were two ladies waiting to go to Typhoon Lagoon (DTD and TL share buses sometimes) and said they had been waiting almost 20 minutes. They used the phone and complained about the wait. A bus came in no time at all.

We are staying at CBR in April and I'm really glad we are driving and have a car. The only time we will use the bus service is when we go to MK. I am concerned though with the stories of the rouge pizza delivery men. That is totally unacceptable, and Disney really should do something about it.

What is the most effective ways of requesting a particular area/floor/room? I've read where just calling the regular Disney line is not the most effective. So I thought I would ask the experts.

Thanks.

Does anyone know if there are 1/2 gallons of milk available in the OPR grab and go area? We are bringing other breakfast items with us for the room, but I don't want to mess with trying to keep milk cold enough on our trip .

Did you book directly? Or through a travel agent (TA)? If you used an agent they should handle putting that on your reservation for you.

If you booked yourself, then I think you need to call back reservations & make sure they add your request. I've also heard people say to call the resort direclty a few days before you arrive to re-confirm your request.

Personally we've always uesed a TA & never had a problem w/our requests.

Yes they do. But its not in the grab and go area. Its in the part where they sell t-shirts and hats and etc. I was surprised, I didn't even know that existed back there. They also have all sorts of grocery items too.

I believe that would be Calypso's.

We are checking into CBR on Sunday for the first time. It was originally me, DH and one of our friends. Last minute we have added one of my other friends to the reservation and the 4 of us will be sharing a room. She won't want to sleep in the bed with DH's friend. Is there a way we can request something for her like a cot or something? Thanks

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't believe they have cots at CBR (since you're not supposed to have more than 4 in a room) - nor is there really room for one.

There is only 4 people but the other two are not a couple and male and female so they aren't comfortable sleeping in a bed together.

Looking forward to staying here! I am nervous about where our room will be since I did not pay for anything extra! I think that my family will enjoy the tropical setting and the main pool looks amazing!!!

on a side note, I have a friend who just got back from a stay at CBR and they were given a pirate room as an upgrade! How great is that!!

I believe cot's are available for $15 a night. You may need to call ahead to reserve one.

Understood. I just meant that since I'm pretty sure they don't allow you to book more than 4 people to a room, that they probably wouldn't even have cots available (as they may see no need to have them). But another poster believes it is possible, so you may very well be able to do it. It sure will be a tight fit, though.

I'm not sure how big the cots are, but we used a twin air mattress at CBR and it was not crowded at all.

That may be another option for you wendyt_ca -- to get an air mattress and take with you. We bought ours at Target for about $30 and take it with us each time we stay at a hotel. It deflates nicely and folds up & fits back in the original box, so we are able to put it in one of our larger/checked pieces of luggage when we fly.
