You can request either a particular "island" or specific buildings. I would recommend a request for building 45 (Jamaica) or 51 (Aruba). A room in one of those buildings is a short walk to Old Port Royale. Of course, room requests are not guaranteed, but are granted a lot more times than they are not.

Just called CBR and they said we did get our requests building 45 Jamaica and connecting rooms! Checking in on Thursday this week but for some reason online check-in not working.

trying to complete my garden grocer order and I can't remember how big the fridge is. I was wanting to get some apple juice. Can a standard bottle fit in the door or do I need to get the individual bottles?

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.
Ok I did suggest an air mattress to my friend. Did the one you bought come with a pump?

Yes, it came with an electric pump. It inflates it and deflates it.

A half-gallon of milk just fits in the door, so you can kind of use that as a guide (so I think a 64oz bottle of apple juice should fit). Overall though, it's not a very big fridge.

We stayed at CBR for the 1st time last month. It was great!

We requested & received to stay in Martinique, bldg 22 which is non-preferred. It was a great location for bus stop & OPR.


Bus Stop





Looking toward our building from the bus stop & parking lot area.




This is a crappy picture, but I wanted to give you a idea of what viewing the Epcot fireworks look like from CBR. We could view them from OPR & from Martinque section.




I will be posting more pics in my Trip Report.

Thanks for posting the pictures! It makes me wish I was there right now. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at the CBR.

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.
Thanks for the info. I booked it through Disney. So I called Reservations today to make the request. And then I'll call CBR a few days before I arrive and make sure they have the request.

Faxing room requests

I was wondering about faxing the room request a few days before arrival. I did this for my stay at Pop Century last month, I specifically lined out what I was looking for and why, and then I even gave them a few exact room numbers that would be perfect, and I got my top pick! I wonder if CBR accepts faxes as well?

I suppose it can't hurt. However, there have been conflicting reports about whether or not they accept/look at room requests sent via fax.

Last year I did not but in a building or room request when making my reservations but did send off a FAX to POR a few days prior to our arrival and got exactly what we ask for (Building & Room). Luck not sure but it sure did not hurt.

This year we did but in a building request via TA, see how it works at CBR

Thanks mcd!!

Another question for you folks: this will be our first trip using the buses, and I know there has been information all over this thread, but I was wondering if someone could give a "rundown" of bus-riding advice and guidelines for us rookies? Any tips on dealing with strollers? How long should we expect things to take? Are there major differences between the different parks and DTD? Just any heads up that would be good for someone to know who has never done this before would be much appreciated! Thanks!
