30 more days and we will be checking into the Caribbean for the first time! Actually it's our first trip and s this will be our first resort stay! We will be in a Pirate room and I have requested to be in Trinidad North to be closest to the main pool area! Does anyone know if these rooms have the refrigerators back in them?

Pirate rooms are only in Trinidad South.

I don't understand then bc when I did our online check in it asked me which Trinidad building I wanted to be in! Confused?! Oh well it will still be ok. Only a short walk from what I have read on here.

Online check-in doesn't really take in effect what category you are booked in. It's still only about a 7 minute walk with a slow pace, so you will be fine!

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!
This was a last minute quickie! Tues arrived and ME at 4:55am tomorrow.

Next stop GF 1/1-1/2 then VGF 1/2-1/5 and 1/5-1/8 to be determined later

Thanks for asking. We had a great time! Was our first disney resort and still special!

Thank you for clarifying that! Glad it's not that far of a walk! : )

We will be checking into CBR Sept 2!!! So excited! I have a pirate room booked because I know the kids would love it but we don't have a rental car, we'll be taking the buses. Would it be better to ask to be put in a room closer to OPR and the pool? Or is it really not that bad? I have a 7 year old and a 3 year old and we'll have a double stroller.

We just got back from CBR on 8/10. We had a great experience and some Pixie Dust! We booked a standard room with preference to Jamaica and Aruba. When we got there we got surprised with an upgrade to a Pirate room, however we had to turn it down because my DD (3) is scared of Pirates and that is why we didn't book one to begin with. Well, I'm guessing they are not used to people turning down an upgrade because 1- 15 minute phone call later, we we were moved to Trinidad North (Preferred) with a water view all as a free upgrade.

Trinidad North did not have refrigerators, so when my DH called to check on this and if it was possible to get one, on top of everything else they issued us a $15 a night credit for the inconvenience.

CBR was very beautiful, very clean, the pools were great and we really liked the food court. I would say the only issue was a few waits for buses, but that happens everywhere. We would definitely stay here again!

What they meant by which Trinidad room you wanted to be in was the number within the Trinidad South village 34-39 as you could see on a CBR map. It's not letting me post the link, to the map, sorry! But you should be able to search it easily on the disboards. I'd vote for 34 or 35 if I was you!

Have a great time! CBR is the best!

hi.

So it's my first time at CBR, 10/22-10/29, and my first time with FD! Rather than search endlessly through the boards to find this information...Can anyone please direct me to where we should request to stay? I do online check in for a standard room in 6 days!

Also, any rumblings of magic bands being tested during October?

You don't have to look too far to find a map. There's a link to one in post #1 of this thread.
