We checked in on the 7th & were happily surprised by an upgrade to a preferred building, water view room in Martinique! No mold, no bugs, no problems. We have a fridge!

We check in the same day! So excited... we didn't have a summer vacation since we have 11 days in Disney (one reason we love homeschooling!)

Now that I am getting more positive replies, I am more excited for this resort.

Is it true the rooms are bigger than other mods? (I want to say I read that somewhere, but can't remember where)

only 60 days!!

I think I may have read somewhere that you can see illuminations from the beach at Caribbean beach does anyone know if this is true. We will be there the week before Thanksgiving.

You can see most of illuminations from the pool deck beside the main pool. If you are in the right spot you'll also be able to see the higher wishes fireworks from MK.

Yes, the rooms at CBR are 340 SQ FT and others are about 314 SQ FT. They feel even bigger than other mods since they still have double beds and the other mods have queen beds. We have never noticed the difference in bed size though and it is never a problem for us.

Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

If the movies are at 8:30pm, that means we'll be able to watch them on the night we arrive! That'll be a nice way to start our trip.

So I will be staying here now in october, was gonna go to either ASMU or POP but due to it being a busy weekend for cast members families coming in. My sister could only book us here or ASSP. I stay here briefly in May, but in barbados which was FAR away from Food area. I have requested this time to be in aruba or jamaica to be closer.

We've stayed in Aruba twice and it was very convenient. We didn't go to the food area often, but I don't remember any exhausting walks after a long day at the park.

Mommieblessings: I didn't grab your quote, but Martinique is on the same side of the lagoon as Old Port Royale (food court) and Jamaica is directly across the lagoon from it - it's about the same walk across the bridge.

We will be checking in just under two weeks and I'm starting to get excited!!

I think they are the same size but may seem larger because they only have double beds and the other mod resorts have queen size beds.

CBR rooms are actually larger than the other mods. The other mods are 314 sq. ft. and CBR rooms are 340 sq. ft.

But the double beds make them seem even bigger than they already are.

We have stayed at POFQ our last several trips and everything is just a short walk. We will be taking the Magic Express to the airport when we leave and I was wondering if it is a long way to drag luggage to do airport check-in on the morning of the day we are leaving.
