Normally there are fridges in the rooms as CBR. Normally, there are fridges in all WDW rooms, even the values. A couple weeks ago, WDW announced there was a safety recall on a certain model fridge that were in most of the WDW resort rooms. This recall affected every resort at WDW in some way. They are currently in the process of replacing all the fridges. Due to the safety aspect, they removed all the recalled fridges immediately and are installing the new. By the time you go, they will be done with the swap out and you will have a fridge.

Like the other moderates, there are some decorations but nothing like the deluxes.

The decorations will all be up by the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend so they will start going up the beginning of November. At DHS, you will start to see the Osborne lights going up in October.

No harder to get around than any other resort. CBR is large, but if you have a wheelchair, you should have no issues. If you didn't book preferred, I would suggest requesting Martinique, Jamaica 45 or Aruba 51 to be closer to the Main Pool and OPR. Also, all the buildings in CBR only have 2 floors so there is no elevator. I would also request 1st floor due to medical reasons.

CBR is our favorite moderate. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!!

I am really curious to see how the refurbed rooms turn out. With a big family now (3 plus 2 under 3), I think the bigger rooms at CBR would be awesome, but two double beds would be harder to make sleeping arrangements.
Also, I love the resort, but I think the rooms just didn't do it for me (aside from the Pirate room, which was awesome, but again, sleeping arrangements would be difficult).

trishadona your pictures are getting me so excited about our stay at CBR. It's been many years since I've stayed at this resort but beach theme is always my favorite.

Which resort are you moving to so I can continue to follow your trip???

One of the DL Divas designed my Marie siggie for me .... I just love her!

Hopefully, when the refurb starts, we'll have some disers who will take pictures of the rooms and post them. There were pictures posted a while back that were supposed to be the mock rooms and they looked pretty nice as far as I could tell. No big bold colors...more creams/tans/browns.

I know where I saw those pics. It was on another Disney message board. Go to Google and type in New Rooms at CBR. When you get to the thread scroll down a few posts for the picture links.

The pictures were posted on another website and then another Diser posted the Photobucket links here on the Dis.

**Disclaimer: These are not my pictures. These are being posted from the Photobucket links that were posted here before. The Photobucket account must be "public" as anyone can click on the links from the other site and see the pictures. From what was said, someone was staying at the CBR and happened upon this room. It was believed to be a mock/sample room. We have no confirmation that this is what the rooms will look like when the refurb is done.

You can't find them? I'd post a link but I don't know if that's a banned site or not. Type in New Rooms at CBR in Google, click on the first thing you see that says New Rooms at CBR. When you get to the thread scroll down to Post #9. You'll see links in that post. Those links will take you to the pictures.

I think that proves that the poster that had a phone CM tell them CBR was finished was given false information. I won't pretend to be surprised that a phone CM was wrong.
