Some of ours:

Rent a Surrey Bike
Stroll around the lake at sunrise or sunset
Grab a drink and watch Illuminations from the Martinique Beach
Take a nap on one of the many hammocks
Enjoy some s'mores while listening to the knowledgeable CMs tell some WDW history
Catch a movie poolside
Try the homemade potato chips - been trying to recreate the spice combo at home, but no luck yet
Have a seat on one of the 2 person swings on Caribbean Cay in the AM and watch the boats on the lake

Have fun!

Our DS11 loved the Pirate Cruise at CBR. He also is a big fan of the s'mores, poolside movie, surrey bike, the main pool, and your little one should enjoy the kiddie splash area. The arcade is usually a big hit as well.

I received a reply 2-3 days later thanking me for taking the time to praise the CM. It also stated that my email would be passed on to their management and a copy put into their file.
Ah, thanks! (Should've remembered I used that same email address for a compliment on another resort.)

Thank you so much!! We don't really need a preferred room, just wanted to be closer to main pool area!

We're here now in Jamaica 43 and really like the location. Was bummed at first that they didn't give me my bldg request, but it's actually a great spot.

Love to relax on the beach and take a dip in the pool and play on the water slides with my DD7. The playground is nice too, but we got ATTACKED by gnats or something, it was horrible, couldn't stay long.

Hello

What are the options that are available for online check in?
Does it give all the options of the villages and does it let you request top or ground floor?

We have not gone since they changed the online check in system so I am not sure. But the tried and true method of making requests is still to call and have them added to your reservation. Then you are not tied to whatever options are available during online check in.

They list the villages (except Trinidad South since those are the pirate rooms), ground floor, top floor, corner room, near transportation, water view. You can choose 2.

Anyone know if they still pack the kids meals with a shovel and pail at the food court?
