Next year they will be doing the more major rehab with furniture / queen beds ?

Kind of a strange way to rehab, maybe thats why it confusing for some uf us . Wondering what the time frame for completion is on the mild rehab ?

Back to the original question to Hanna. Was your room in Jamaica like the picture of the mild rehab?

Thanks !

Yes it does look like that...still with the runner at the end of the bed. We are in a king. I wish I could post pics!!

Do you need a Friday? Did you ask for one when you got there? We are going in 2 weeks and ordered garden grocer so we will really need one!

Why are CMs misleading people by saying they are all replaced? I would rather know the truth personally and be prepared to not have one over expecting to have one and it not being there when we get there. Glad I still have 86 days, hopefully, by then it is more concrete.

Phone CMs don't know what's really going on at WDW. And yes, if you call the CBR phone number it is still just an offsite call center that answers as CBR, it is not the desk at CBR.

I am pretty sure that someone in this thread was at CBR and asked and was told they were all replaced, but maybe I misunderstood.

A poster on page 8 of the "Fridge Status Check In" thread, mentioned that they called CBR today to request a fridge for their upcoming trip. The CM said that CBR was all done.

Maybe yours is indeed brand new and you are the first to use it?!

Nope, see the post above yours, they called "CBR", AKA the CBR call center. I read the original post on the fridge thread and they definitely said they called, here is their post from that thread:

I've been watching this CBR thread and the fridge post thread since we are 30 days out. Although it is encouraging to see more recent posters having good luck with fridges, we are still planning to pack a soft-sided cooler in our luggage.

If we have a fridge - great! If not, we only need ice for milk and adult beverages.

But I will still be on my first WDW vacation in over 10 years!!

Thanks again to all the on site (and recently returned) posters who are keeping us in the loop.

We didn't ask for one, just thought we'd see what was in our room. We don't 'need' one...no kids or medical reason but it would have been really helpful.

Bring a bottle of Pepto Bismol and tell them you need for medical. It says on package, tastes better cold!
