Yay for arriving early and your room being ready!

Glad you had a great trip. We leave July 13th and can't wait!!!
I can understand your train of thought. Why change up something that we know is a good fit.

We returned Saturday and the layout of the rooms are the same. The only change were the bedspreads. No bright Nemo/tropical color bedspreads. Just white.

For any of you who would like to read about our latest trip to Disney, here's the link: 1 crazy family+2 resorts+5 parks+1 snake+1 surprise= A Mickeystoontown Report: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3122381

As is hinted in the title of the report, we had quite a few exciting things happen while on the trip. In case you are wondering (go ahead...admit it....you were ) the snake was NOT spotted at Caribbean Beach.

Have fun and I'll keep my fingers crossed that there's no rain. Oh and just a note, they were doing some sort of work on the Martinique beach but the campfire pit was still there. If it's not there, then ask a castmember because it has been held on the Trinidad North beach before.

I will try, but we've already messed up the room. DH and kids had started unloading things before I got in here. Post # 679 on page 46 is a link to current pics, thr post was by pktbmouse. The only thing changed is the bedspreads as far as I can tell. The Nemo border is still up.

Hi all we just changed to this resort for 9/20-9/28. We do have FD; and will be celebrating my Bday ! We have never stayed at a Mod before; mostly deluxes and 2 times at Pop. My son's friend at school just returned and they stayed in a pirate room- so we're trying it And we're saving 1200 WOW ! We were booked at the BC- we've stayed there before and love it; especially the location ! But my son really wants a pirate room and pirate pool
So I'm game ~ as long as we're at Disney that's what counts !

I have no idea where this resort is located in terms of where in WDW and which is the nearest park.

If anyone can give me a list of must do's and if you could tell me about the sit down restaurant I would really appreciate it

Thanks in advance !

DHS is the closest park and is about a 5 minute bus ride. Epcot is the next closest and is about 7 minutes, AK about 10 and about 17 to MK.

Our must do's:
Smore's at night on the beach
Rent a Surrey bike
Grab a drink and watch Illuminations from the beach (granted you can only see the higher fireworks, but it's still awesome!)
Grab a nap on a hammock on the beach
Catch one of the nightly movies
Stroll around the lake as the sun comes up and/or sets
Take 1 or 2 days to just chill at the resort and enjoy

Shutters is the table service restaurant and has a Caribbean flavored menu. The décor is nothing special, but the service is great and the food quality is much improved from a few years ago. It is only open for dinner and here are the menus.

Main Dinner Menu

Kids Dinner Menu

CBR is our favorite moderate. Hope you have a magical stay!

I have never stayed a Caribbean Beach before. (usually at All Stars) I got a promo for free dining for November so I figured I could afford to bump up! From the pics I have seen so far...I am worried we may never want to leave the resort!! It looks wonderful.

I really love the pirate room...wondering if it is worth a bump up there...thoughts??

I have a preferred room booked but in the interest of saving the $212 dollars I am thinking of dropping it down to a Standard room. I know this question has probably been asked a million times but what are the best areas to request for Standard? I don't mind a 5 minute walk or thereabouts. But it is August when we're going to I'd like to not be really far from the main areas.
I like the looks of the Jamaica buildings. Are they too far to use the food court and pool often?

Our favorite is Jamaica 45 which is just under 5 minutes to the food court. Aruba 51 is also the same. Martinique 21, 22, and 23 are close too.

Just wanted to say Hi! I followed you over hear from team August. We did switch our November trip to CBR. Decided to book standard, and requested Jamaica 44, 45, or 46 based on waaaaaaay too much reading the other night.
