I posted pictures of the drink options on the CBR pic thread recently. If you can't find them, let me know.

Have only stayed at POFQ on our 1st trip last year. You hear so often, on how small that resort is. Then I hear how large CBR is, and I was pretty nervous and booked preferred.

So just for curiosity's sake, can anyone tell me how big CBR is, compared to one of the parks? Over on the POFQ board, Andre did an overlay of the buildings onto MK map. Does anyone have the know-how to do this for a comparison? If so, it would be greatly appreciated. (BTW, from bldg 1 to bldg 7, FQ only stretches from Adventureland bridge to entrance of Space Mtn).

I'm so excited to try a new resort!!

hey sammyjo..Im not sure about comparisons...maybe someone else can help you with that one...personally I just dont find it all that big as people make it out to be. Not any bigger than say Pop century or a All star resort. Just set out alot nicer around a lake but you can cut across the lake vi the bridge. We always opted for the preferred rooms but after continually walking over the bridge to take the kids to the playground every day we thought why bother so this year we are just paying for standard. Its such a beautiful resort to walk around with all the flowers, ducks, bunnies, lizards, beaches, fish, turtles..it really dosnt seem all that big to me at all..just my personal opinion. If you have booked preferred then you will definitely be right next to the main pool and food court so you will no need to worry.

Ditto! I've never really understood the whole "it's such a huge resort" posts as the walks to and from our room to OPR or the bus stops have never felt that long to us. We were in Barbados before our cruise last year and our walk was about 7 minutes behind a couple with a double stroller who were walking at a slow pace.

I have stayed at POR multiple times, and didn't think I would have a problem with the size of CBR. I did! It is not just that it is so big, but the layout is strange--you check in and out once place, go eat and shop at a different place, and the pool is here, and then there is the 10+ minutes you spend driving around the resort before you even leave for the parks.

No thanks. CBR is a pretty resort, but it is added onto my short list (along with the Beach Club) of resorts where it is almost necessary to have your own car.

No thanks.
I guess the Custom House location isn't a problem for us because we only check-in and then leave. But, I can see where that might be a problem for others. There is a concierge desk in Old Port Royale should a guest need their services. The bus stops didn't bother us either. Maybe we've lucked out and it didn't take us long. Oh well, that's why Disney has a lot of different resorts that come in all shapes and sizes.

I don't mind walking and I sure don't mind the buses stopping at each village. Maybe I'm weird. "Next stop Aruba!"

Good afternoon all. We are DVC members. We check in on Friday, May 31st at AKV-Jambo House, but we are arriving on Thursday. I reserved a pirate room for the night because I thought my boys would love the pirate theme. I am coming across a lot of contradictory information regarding the bed size. In various places, I have read that the beds are doubles, queens, and full (in addition to the king rooms). I know only one of these can be correct. Which one is it?

Actually two are correct, as double and full are the same exact size, just two different names for it! The beds are double/full, no queen beds in CBR.
