FYI - the bed rails they have there should fit on the pirate beds as well as the regular ones. :-) (just called CBR and talked to a really nice lady). :-)

I called CBR today to ask a question and while I was on the phone I asked about the linens. The lady had no idea what I was talking about any transferred me to housekeeping. That lady told me there was no change to the blankets and they still had the Nemo ones. I said 'I heard people saying there were white covers instead now' and she said no.

lol

It's crazy that I have actually had those white sheet/blanket/whatever you want to call them on my beds at the CBR yet housekeeping is still saying that they are using the Nemo ones. We were in Martinique a little over a week ago and that's the bedding that we had. Others have posted pics and info saying that they have them or had them while there too. We are more informed than Disney is.

I saw the pics too, I had to laugh. I knew they had the white ones, just wasn't sure if it had been switched over in all the villages yet. Apparently they all have Nemo blankets .

I did have two afghans/throws in the back of the car and I took them in. I used one of them on my side of the bed 'cause John likes to keep the room cold. The sheet/bedspread/whatever wasn't super thin like a sheet and there was a lightweight blanket underneath too. I probably would have been okay had it not been for Mr. I Must Turn The Air Down Until We Are All Blowing Vapor From Our Noses. Seriously, he didn't turn it down that cold but he did keep it a little cooler than I would have preferred.

Our past few trips we have stayed at the Poly and driven to AK and DS and taken the monorail to Epcot and MK. This trip we are staying at CBR with a group that has 27 total individuals. There may be days we split up and days we all head to the park together. Due to our group size and depending on which building we are put, we will probably drive to the parks. However, I'm undecided what to do about the MK day. I hate the idea of having to park and load at the TTC for the ride over and would rather take the bus. But with a possible 27 individuals in our group, I don't see us all getting on the same bus to the MK...again this might depend in which village we end up in. Suggestions on the bus or drive to the MK? The MK is several days into the trip so I am thinking (hoping) that several will be venturing out on their own by then anyway.

Could you just plan to meet at the park and then some could take the bus and some could drive?

Driving to the MK is the pits! I hated it and always rely on the buses to get us there (and to all of the other parks as well). But, in your situation, I can see your reasoning in driving. My mother, who is 79, had no issues, whatsoever, taking the buses to and from the parks by herself. There's enough signage on the buses and the park bus stops that I think everybody should be fine making their own way to the Magic Kingdom even if ya'll did get split up.

Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

I think I'll miss taking the ferryboat to MK, as we always stayed offsite before and had to drive in. Going straight to the MK from our resort will be nice though.
