Not in the rooms. But there are a couple at the food court.

When we do instant oatmeal in the room, we just use the coffee pot for hot water (not coffee).

Smile Walk to Magic Kingdom question?

I read on several trip advisor reports that there is a walking path from the CBR to the Magic Kingdom. Does anyone have any information as to where the trail is and what village it would be closest to? Will be there June 7-14.

Those reports are inaccurate.

You may be confusing the Caribbean Beach with the Contemporary Resort.

Thanks

Went back and reread the reviews, but I trust the info from these boards much better. Could not see how there would be a path but I knew this was the place to get a clear answer. Looking forward to CBR as our 9yo son chose this resort after we toured several back in January and he is bored of POR (even though it is our favorite, esp after remodel)

We plan on staying at Trinidad South, pirate themed rooms, and I noticed that these are the last bus stops. We plan on doing rope drop, what time do we need to be at bus to make sure we are on it. We plan on going June 3-7.

Buses around CBR

Sorry if this has already been answered on the thread but here goes....

We are staying in a Pirate Room for our visit in October.

Will we be one of the first stops for the buses - and do we run the risk of the bus being full?

It's about 5 miles from CBR to MK and that's if you could walk a straight line between the two without worrying about roads, trees, etc. Don't know where that person that wrote that review got that info, but there is no way to walk from CBR to any park.

The Trinidad South bus stop is not always the last stop on the route. Sometimes, it's in the middle of the route around the resort. Most of our trips have been during the month of May and into June and the bus has never been too full to take on the Trinidad South guests waiting at the bus stop.

Can't wait to go here next month, it's felt so long, but now just round the corner.

Great info on here, mickeystoontown info was excellent too.

I did note about Trinidad South being heavily Pirate themed. Was this just relating to the actual rooms or is the surrounding areas Pirate Themes? Or are the buildings etc just the same as all the rest?

Good morning! The Trinidad South rooms are all pirate themed but the outside of the buildings are just the same as the rest. Each village is painted a different color but are, basically, the same.

Our First Moderate Resort

We have not been to Disney, in almost four years we have stayed at the All Star Movie Resort twice and loved it. Now that our daughter is older we have decided to upgrade to a moderate. Will be staying at CBR, May 24-28 and all three of us are excited!!! We were able to get a preferred room included in the price. Our request we put in was ground floor, near transportation. We are planning to stay in Orlando the night before to get to the resort early on the 24(which is the resort day). Not worried about room being ready early, since we will be driving and can have access to our luggage easily. I did online check in, my question is should I leave the two request of near transportation ground floor, or should I change it to a building request, the two that were offered were Martinique and Trinidad North(from what I read these are the preferred buildings)? Our main goal is to be close to transportation and the the town center. Would like some suggestions or feedback to those who have stayed here.

Hi, quite funny with the time difference as it's late afternoon here.

Many thanks for the superquick response.

Would've been great if they did some sort of changes to the actual building and surrounding areas, but not to be.

If ground floor is important to you, I'd leave that request as is. You are correct that the villages of Martinique and Trinidad North are where the preferred rooms are located. Honestly, since all of the villages have their own bus stops, I don't think that the "close to transportation" request is all that important. We have stayed in two of the preferred Martinique buildings and loved it when we were in Martinique 26. The walk to Old Port Royale was super quick and we used the OPR bus stop since it was so close.
