I like the looks of the Jamaica buildings. Are they too far to use the food court and pool often?
Hi, from another Canadian - We'll be at CBR in August as well. We like requesting Aruba or Jamaica. Love the walk over to Old Port Royale. We usually pick up stuff for breakfast the night before and put it in the fridge in the room for the morning.

We have a little girl so no interest in the pirate rooms here. Quite frankly seems a bit far for the themed rooms to walk to main food court. But then again PORs Royal Rooms were a lil walk to them from main building.

I really love the pirate room...wondering if it is worth a bump up there...thoughts??
We're doing a pirate room if we switch to CBR! But we also have pirate obsessed kids...DS6 and DD2. :-)

Thank you fellow Canadian! I think I will drop it to standard. My desire to keep that $212 in my wallet is winning. I don't mind a walk.. I would just prefer it not be a 20 minute trek to get a drink

You're not alone. I have no desire to pay extra for a longer walk to the food court.

Hey EpcotBill, Nice to see you... Yeah I agree in this resort's layout I would pass at paying extra to walk further lol.

Yup, that's me too.

Ok, so I've read many reviews of the rooms, and they seem to be in great need of a full refurbishment (not just the new white covers?). That being said, are the pirate rooms in as sad of a state?

Hi Everyone!
My pirate-obsessed DH just told me we *have* to stay in a pirate room if we go on an October trip! Did I see that there's a PIN for Disney Visa Cardholders for FD? Where would I find it (is it on my Visa online statement)?

If we go it'd be a short trip... MNSSHP on Friday (arrival day), just the resort on Saturday, MNSSHP on Sunday, and leaving Monday. Will there be enough to keep us busy at the resort on Saturday? We probably won't be up and moving until after 10am if that helps.

It has nothing to do with the Disney Visa. Just some randomly selected lucky ducks that got it in a snail mail/email from Disney.

I don't know about the pirate rooms, but we are in Martinique 21 right now, and our room is fine. We have the new linens, and they're ok, but the room itself doesn't look worn at all. I wasn't sure what to expect after all the reviews either, but our room doesn't have any nicks in the paint or stains on the carpet that I've noticed in the last six days.

We had no issues with our room in April either. I think once any kind of renovation is noticed, some people get all excited and kind of expect to see a lot of change. In the case of CBR the real wish is for queen beds, finally.

The bed size is not an issue for us as it's just me and DW in our room and we often upgrade to the king sized bed rooms.

You don't have to stay on the resort all day Saturday. You could resort hop or go to Downtown Disney - plenty of free entertainment there.
