Loving your report Jackie. I'm with you on finding the room first without the luggage.

Come on, is ANYONE interested in finding out who this family was?
We got in our room about 1 hour before Jackie, room 5103. We were walking out of our room to go to the main pool for a swim, when this familiar looking man walked by, then when I saw the rest of his family, I knew instantly that it was Jackie. It happened so fast, and totally unexpected. This was the first time I saw a DISer on our many trips to DW.

I have no sense of directions at all.

The resort photo are beautiful. It looks so relaxing.

My kids like each other better at Disney too.

Did Charles get a small nap in before dinner since he didn't nap on the drive down?

Looking forward to dinner.

Great pics of CBR! I love that Charles was persuading Chelsea with hopes of looking at hot waiters!! Crack me up. What you will do sometimes for rest.
I think it is funny that your kids liked to chase the birds. Cooper, my oldest, does not bother a bird at all until he gets to WDW and then it is his favorite activity to try to catch one. He harassed one at the GF so much I had to make him stop and come sit down and eat at Gasparillas.

Yay, an update!!

CBR is BEAUTIFUL! I don't know if I have ever looked at many pictures of it, wow!! Wonderful pictures around the resort, thanks for the walk! The picture of the kids on the bridge is adorable.

Chelsea truly is a teenager isn't she? And Charles must have REALLY wanted some relaxing time to point out the cute waiters fact!

Me, me! I was interested! How very cool that you randomly ran into each other!

Our stay at CB was so much fun in the mornings. We would get breafast & eat outside. The birds would gather with some alighting on the chair backs, so we would slip them tidbits. They were so tame & added to our enjoyment.

I love the small cay, it was nice to walk in & explore.

I love that Alice quote.

I'm sure the kids were just tickled that they were right and you were wrong. Pretty cool that you had a little DIS meet though!

Glad to hear that your room was great besides being a bit far from the bus stops! Love the pics of the grounds. CBR is such a beautiful resort! I would have been dying to try out that pool myself.

I hope you framed that picture of the kids hugging.

Chelsea and the cute waiters.

Looking forward to hearing about your dinner!

CBR always looks so pretty! We have friends headed there in less than two months, ( I am the trip planner) so I just love these pics!

Tutto yummo! Can you tell I have class through dinner hour and could clearly use some good food before say 8 tonight!

Love the sibling kindness pics. Luke goes around hitting his sisters.... so we have no love right now!
