Hi All!- Just switched from Pop to CBR with the new discounts today and I'm really excited! Based on the last few posts... we are going in early August should I be concerned the resort will be overrun with sports teams? I'm guessing Pop is just as likely to have that happen as well?

Thanks!

Congrats on the switch! I think that you'll be fine even if the sports teams do spill over to the CBR.

Thanks Lisa.

just like me to have requested Jamaica too...UGH...even if they put me in Aruba I dont want to hear the sound of sanders going all day long, the plan was to relax at the quiet pool a few days.. oh well I will just have to wait and see when I get there where they end up putting us, I can always ask them to move us when I get there if Im not happy with the room...no big deal. .....( hubby laughed when I told him I had requested Jamaica and just found out it was being painted as we are normally the family that gets the rooms that face the dumsters or the brick walls...we never ever luck out with rooms like others do...lol) 33 and counting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last week, I was at CBR in Aruba bldg 51, right next to Jamaica and they were working on the outside of the buildings in Jamaica but I never heard the noise, we went to the Aruba quiet pool one afternoon and there was no noise from the workmen, only the sounds of pool games from the main pool.

How bad is it at CBR when the cheer teams are there? We will arrive on April 28th and they leave on the 30th. I am glad that I saw another post about them since I was able to find out that they have a party at HS on the 29th.

I am so proud for all of the teams that get to go to WDW and participate in the competition. I just hope that I can still have the trip that I have been planning for.

Yea. I've read through this entire thread over the last 2 days. I don't think I'll try to read the old one.

We are trying out CBR June 5-12. Can't wait. We were originally booked at AoA, but with the discount at that time, we could stay for almost the same price at a Mod so I let my dd12 look them all up and pick with the compromise that we'll go spend our last night at AoA.

Can't wait to keep reading future posts and learn as much as possible before we go in 63 days!!

For the past 4 yrs we have stayed at thr CBR in the last week of april and begining of May and to be honest you the only time I noticed them was when we had breakfast realy early one morning at OPR I think they keep them realy busy at the sports complex they realy dont spend much time at the resort

There were high school teams there last week, I saw baseball, softball and girls lacrosse. Only at the food court and they weren't obnoxious at all. They must have real early games because I was there at 7am and they were on their way out.

We are going to be there the last week of August so I hope we don't run into any of the teams or the Brazilians that I keep hearing about. With it being such a big resort I'm sure there is more then enough room for everyone. Having said that there is nothing worse then having loud rude people next to you or below or above you. We always try to think of those around us and not make more noise then we need but there are certainly many who don't worry about that.

Me either! I just spoke with a CM to confirm that they had our requests notated and they didn't know about the refurbishing either.

I read that we can see some of the Epcot fireworks from The Martinique beach and the Old Port Royale courtyard. Is there a building that we can see them from? We have our favorite buildings at Pop as we can walk outside our room and watch fireworks. Wouldn't mind a longer walk if we can have that view at CBR.
