Thanks for posting!! In person I am sure it looks different but in the pictures they just look like unmade beds, like they forgot the cover. For me they look like sheets tucked in. They really clash with the decor of the room

Has anyone given a thought that the old quilts were quite warn and if you are going to make the change to queen beds that you might want to save cost at this time on new queen quilts later? Look like the white ones they used during the Poly do over.

HiHo, I wondered if the linens were just the beginning, sort of like an "it isn't much, but it's a start" kind of thing? I know they were painting exteriors in Jamaica, but I didn't see any evidence of inside painting. I doubt they would close buildings during the summer to paint/refurb, but linen changes wouldn't take long so maybe this is just the start?

I wonder what will happen to the pirate rooms when they DO finally do a refurb and change over to queen beds...

I have been wondering the same thing. So hopefully it is a step in the right direction. Or maybe Disney doesn't want the rooms to look to great because then people wouldn't leave them to go spend their money in the gift shops.

I'm thinking along those same lines. Even though there's been no official confirmation of room change-overs, there are the two "mock" rooms that someone posted pictures of. Now, we are seeing the linens being changed out and, apparently, the wall paper border has come down in some of the rooms as well. If they were going to do a refurb, it would make sense to not buy the more expensive linens until a new "theme" has been decided upon.

Just returned from our CBR stay and I must say, we did enjoy this resort. My kids absolutely loved the main pool, I think they would have been content to stay there and swim everyday instead of going to the parks!

We stayed in Aruba 56. It was really close to the bus stop, but it was a good little walk to OPR. Not really a big deal for us, but can see how it could be for some. What I liked about the building is that it was out of the way and very quiet...made for good rest after long days in the park!

I really hoped to do more of the resort activities like renting the bikes, watching the nightly movie, campfire on the beach, but if we were at the resort in the evening, the kiddos wanted to swim.

The buses were fine. We never waited very long, most of the time, Aruba was the second stop, so it was never full when we were picked up (except once headed to MK in the evening). Same with leaving the parks, buses came pretty regularly and were never full headed back.

All in all, we really liked CBR. One of my favorite things was laying on a hammock on the beach with my book.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Can't have this lovely thread sinking to the bottom of page 2. My trip is only 52 days away.

I am so ready for this trip. I have to get a wisdom tooth pulled tomorrow. Can I go to Disney instead?

I am so looking forward to settling in to one of those Hammocks. I've already picked out things I want to try from the counter service restaurant and I am determined to grab a snack with the kids and check out at least one movie night. Hurry up and get here August!

Keep happy thought about Disney during your dentist appointment. I don't envy you at all. Well yes I do. I wish I was going in August instead of having to wait till December.

Peeking in.

DH has been studying the different resorts and really seems to like this one.

I started a PTR but we can't say officially until the package rates come out.

We would pay for preferred but hope for preferred/king. Maybe we will get pixie dusted!

We were there in May/June of this year and had no problems with mold or damp rooms (we had three rooms).

Good luck with the tooth today. When do they post the movie schedule? Is that something we can find online?

We were there June 5-14 and didn't have any problems with this. We have friends who were there the week before, and they didn't either.
