You are very welcome! I hope that you'll post on my trip report. I love meeting new Disers!

Try the city as Orlando instead, for some reason some only recognize it as Orlando instead of Lake Buena Vista. Same zip code of 32830.

I always said to the GPS ' 900 Cayman Way Bay Lake, Florida' and that worked every time.

PopCentury is close to the CBR. You can see the top of the bowling pins from the village of Jamaica. I suggest you do as the other two posters and try either just saying Florida or Orlando.

Hi all,

we are from Australia and are staying at CBR Oct/Nov. we got a preferred room and just wondering if there a "preferred preferred"! are the roomsall on one level? if not is upper level better?

we have been to DL 3 years ago and one things that's obvious is the size of WDW is a totally different scale and while we know that and have read up on it, I don't think we are going to be able to fathom it until we get there.

happy for any tips

thanks alot

All of the preferred rooms are very close to OPR and the main pool. Can't think of any that are better than the rest.

All of the buildings are have 2 levels. We prefer the upper floor, but would not say it's better. Just our preference as we don't have a stroller with us.

The buildings at the CBR are two stories/levels. We have stayed on both levels and, honestly, I didn't really notice a difference as far as one being superior over the other.

The preferred rooms are located in Martinique buildings 24, 25 and 26 and all buildings in Trinidad North.

You can see where those buildings are by a quick look at this map:



You are right that WDW is larger than DL. I forgot to look at your signature to see if you had a ticker stating how long you will be in Walt Disney World. If you have the time, I'd suggest taking two days to see the Magic Kingdom, two days to see Epcot, and at least a day for both Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom. We like to spend time at Downtown Disney and usually spend at least an afternoon and evening there.

In addition to the Disboards, you'll find a wealth of information over on www.allearsnet.com.

Yep, there's air conditioning in the rooms.

Hi all,
We just returned from our stay at CBR. We were there Aug 25 through Sept 3. It was a great resort. It is big and sometimes after coming back from the parks we didn't feel like walking to Port Royale for drinks, but otherwise the size didn't bother us. The buses ran very smothly. In fact, I would say they ran better than the buses at our Beach Club stay last year. The room was very clean. The beds were very comfortable. I usually have trouble sleeping in hotels, but I did not have any trouble here. We were in Jamaica 41. We saw them painting all of the Jamaica signs. They were also doing quite a bit of landscaping. They were taking out some very large bushes/plants. I also noticed as we were waiting for our Magical Express motorcoach to take us back to MCO, that at the Customs House they were doing some surveying (with surveying equipment, not asking people questions ) The pools were fantastic. Everyone in my family said they would stay there again.

Thanks so much for your review and update on the fridge situation. I'm glad to hear that you had such a great time at the resort.

Did you happen to hear if everyone had a new fridge or was it just a few rooms? We will be there in three weeks and we have friends coming that will be there for a week. They really need a fridge for milk and such for the kids.
