We're like this too, except we fly down and don't rent a car. The buses always seem to work out during our stays. Sure, occasionally we have to wait a bit but mostly they are pretty efficient. After a week at WDW, it seems strange to get back in our car at the airport.

I know I am asking this on the CBR thread so I'm sure you all are biased, but we are booked at AKL for the first week in August. DS6 just mentioned that he really wanted to stay in a pirate room so I am comparing the two to figure out which would be best for us. DD is 2 and will most likely be sleeping on a toddler inflatable mattress. Is there room for something like that?

Yup. There's a couple different places you could put it. Between either bed and the wall or move the table and chairs slightly.

I kinda hope DS isn't past the 48" as well...

FYI, after multiple stays I've only seen them measure and ask one kid to leave the area. And, I hate to say it, the kid deserved it. He was making it hard for the little ones to enjoy themselves by running by them, splashing them, and bumping into them.

I've stayed ay both. AKL is beautiful!!!!! No grounds like that anywhere. We like CBR also though. Staying there again in December. As far as room size goes AKL is not much bigger than CBR at all.

Looks like I belong in here now!
I just made the switch to CBR from POFQ for our August trip this morning.
While we liked the idea of staying at POFQ, 2 things made us change our mind. One is that the foodcourt menu wasn't quite what we were looking for. DD(16) is a vegetarian and there were only a few choices for her and only one that she would actually eat. The CBR menu was better for us. And two ..POOLS!!
POFQ only has the one, and the slide is small. My ds(9) will swim at least once a day in the main pool, and we always hop in the quiet pool before we go to bed for a few minutes. CBR just appealed to us way more with the gorgeous feature pool and all of the quiet pools.

We did end up booking a preferred room. It was worth it to me to be close to everything. Looking forward to it!

So we have a trip booked for November and we were originally supposed to be staying at POR with a garden view but it turns out that we can't stay there with our free dining PIN so the moved us to POFQ. I was excited to stay at POR but I can't get excited about FQ, even though I know there's access to POR as well.
We stayed at CBR in January and really, really loved it...we were in Martinique 26 and my kids loved the kiddie pool. I'm tempted to just go back to CBR instead of FQ because we really liked the resort but we still want to try something different. I'm thinking of staying in the pirate rooms...this will be a surprise trip for the kids anyway and they'll be 5 and 2 at the time so they'll love it. Just a few questions...
1. I've heard that the mattresses are shorter than the Nemo rooms to avoid the ship portion sticking out too much in the room. Can anyone confirm this? I'm 5'11 and DH is 6'3 so we can't really afford a shorter than usual mattress.
2. Does anyone know if the pirate rooms are blacked out of the free dining PIN in Nov? I think its the Disney visa card holder pin.

Thanks!!!!

I can't speak to the bed issue because I haven't stayed there so hopefully someone else can help. But I know I just booked with a free dining pin today and the pirate rooms were coming up.
