Going Back in June! Can't wait! This will be our first stay at CBR. My youngest wants to stay in the pirate room's. I didn't tell him that is what we booked. I like to surprise the kids when I can.

Thanks!
I think I've seen the picture, and yes it's like that, but it's not as bad as it seems. We found the beds to be rather comfy. I figure that it's a situation caused by the pirate-ship bedframes...

THis worked great on our Nov 10 trip and we did get our king bed and a second floor preferred location...it was awesome! Trinidad North building 33 right by the bus stop

I plan on doing the same thing for our Oct trip
Thank you so much!

Not long now... 24 days until we are there!!! We have a pirate room for the first night and then we move to the preferred for another 6. Can't wait!! Still not sure if we are going to do the Garden Grocer order or not... I am sure it is easy to do their minimum $40 order! It is just we get in late that first night and then we have bibbity bobitty booked at the MK for 10:30 and they want a 2 hour window... PLUS we are switching rooms.... UGH.
I keep checking and calling for a preferred for that first night but it just never seems to open up. Lots of Pirate rooms available....

Don't worry about getting in late. I wasn't getting in until about 11pm last year. We placed our order with GG and requested the latest delivery window (I believe 7-9pm). Well...they called my cell phone about 4 in the afternoon to tell me that they had another delivery for CBR, so they were delivering our stuff as well. Only thing was, we were still in NY, in our car, on the Long Island Expressway heading for the airport. Bell servcices will take the delivery and hold everything for you (they have a fridge, so no worries) until you check in. Just make sure they get everything for you. It wasn't until we were in our room that we realized bell services forgot our refrigerated items. I called them up and they brought the rest of the items to our room a little while later.

Hello All!

We will be at CBR 4/10-4/16. Does CBR post a schedule of daily activities (ie..live band, movie night)?
