Beautiful resort! Too bad it was far from the bus stops, but close to everything else!
I love that she trusted your opinion on the waiters. If we wanted to convince Tessa to go to Tutto, all we would have had to do was say that we wanted Teppan.

John and I were in Aruba on our second anniversary trip. We were right across front he bus stop though and quite a ways away from the path across the island.

YAY! You started and I'm already behind! Love Charles' incognito Disney ice cream picture

Looks like Chelsea had a great birthday!! Can't believe she's a teenager already!

I just love your car rides..there's definitely always an adventure for you during them! I'm so excited you stayed at CBR, we always stayed there when I was a little kid, so I haven't been back there since 2002. It's funny though, I love the rooms, but I always always ALWAYS get turned around at the way the rooms are set up, it's like a maze sometimes trying to locate your room!

You slid that update in yesterday and I missed it! Well just read now, and gee, it looks like someone reserved the whole resort! I didn't see a soul in those photos! It was like you were by yourself! I often notice that at Disney resorts .. you can feel really alone, or really "squished!" Nice pictures that Chelsea took! Oh that was too funny about the waiters... Well that is one way to get a teenage girl to cooperate!!! The grounds at CBR are so pretty!

Jackie, You have one fast-moving TR. I can't miss a day or I'm pages behind. Just out of curiosity, did you get any photos of your room interior at CBR? I'd love to see one if you did.

They love each other and would DO anything for each other, they are just so TOTALLY opposite in personality, style, etc. Can't wait to read about the "cute waiters."
Thanks! Chelsea and Connor used to get along wonderfully until Chelsea started middle school, and now they aren't quite as close as they used to be. They still get along pretty well, but there are definitely some dicey moments from time to time.

All of us really like it there. However, I am ready to try another new resort for the next trip.

We just booked standard -- I couldn't justify the preferred location because it would have ended up being the same price as a room at the AKL. I knew we would have our car if we ended up being stuck in the boonies.

I was very glad that our room was ready. I was surprised to since he had been so stubborn about wanting to go.

Thank you! I love that picture on the bridge -- it may be my favorite picture of the two of them from the trip.

Italian waiters are always a plus!

Hi, Jennifer!!! Sadly, there are no pictures of the cute waiters -- you will just have to take our word for it.

What??? After the near heart attack he gave you about wanting to eat there???
It was a beautiful resort! All of us have now stayed at all four moderates.

I was looking through our pictures, and believe it or not, I did not get any pictures of the room. Somehow in all the excitement I just plain forgot.

Can you believe it? I was very glad I kept our Tutto reservation since that's where I really wanted to eat anyway.

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.
It was so neat to run into you!!! I have to confess I felt like quite the celebrity. LOL!

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

Looking forward to dinner.
I usually have a great sense of direction, but it deserted me when it was time to find the room.

I wish my children got along in the real world as well as they do at Disney.

I don't remember if Charles actually napped or not. He may have just relaxed in the air conditioning.

Exactly! Charles was willing to pull out the big guns to get a few more minutes of rest! LOL!

Too funny! Yes, my kids are always chasing the birds at Disney! Poor things!

I love the small cay, it was nice to walk in & explore.
The birds were really pretty there! We enjoyed seeing them every time we wandered over to Old Port Royal.

CBR is a great place to stay -- especially if you have a car because it is super quick to get to Epcot and DHS -- they are literally right around the corner from the resort.

The resort looks gorgeous!!!
Oh, I was fine with skipping Teppan -- I wanted Tutto all along.

On to Sept. My DS 16 has off labor day and 2 days at the end of that week. Since I took when my DD when she turned 16 and did the Backstage safari tour, I felt I owed my DS.
The Oct Trip ( trips really )are bookends on the conference again. The problem is the conference is in San Antonio this year. The year of the annual pass.
Oh Yeah, the July trip was a bonus trip. The fireworks, ToT and of course that parade ( that I hear just got extended) was luring me down. So I gave in.
So, are you doing the Backstage Safari with your DS? That would be so neat!

Love the Alice in Wonderland quote.
Both bus stops seemed forever away -- we ended up driving almost everywhere anyway -- being close to the bridge was perfect!

I'm so excited you stayed at CBR, we always stayed there when I was a little kid, so I haven't been back there since 2002. It's funny though, I love the rooms, but I always always ALWAYS get turned around at the way the rooms are set up, it's like a maze sometimes trying to locate your room!
Never an uneventful ride for us!

Yes, just like a maze trying to find our room!

I often notice that at Disney resorts .. you can feel really alone, or really "squished!" Nice pictures that Chelsea took!
The only part of the resort that ever felt really busy was the main pool area, and even that wasn't too bad. It was nice to escape from the crowds at the park and enjoy the peace at the resort!

Exactly! Charles knew what it would take to make Chelsea happy with the decision. LOL!

I didn't -- I guess in all the excitement of the arrival, I completely forgot. There are some pictures taken in the room during the week, but I don't know if it gives a good sense of the room.
