Has anyone heard about refrigerators being out of service at CBR? We will be there the first part of August.

Looking at that demo room it really looks like that tv cabinet holds another bed like the rooms at POR or Aulani. Could CBR possibly be converting to allow another choice for families of 5?
Time will tell!

It's not just CBR but all of Disney, World and Land. It's my understanding the change out has started and it's anticipated to be completed in 4 months.
Here's a link to one of the announcements.

ME tickets arrived tonight only 38 more sleeps to go before we're at CBR.

Disney service is great. I talked to the CM on Monday about reserving the Magical Express, the tickets were shipped yesterday and arrived today. Not bad, for going totally across the country and to Canada to boot.

Guess, we'll see our cruise docs next week.

I just booked my stay! I was wavering because I keep hearing good reviews about POR and some not so go ones about CBR so I went online to book POR and it just didn't appeal to me and when I went back and looked at the photos of CBR I was sold - booked a pirate room

Now if only the extended free dining offer would hurry up and come out I'd be all set!

You would not have gone wrong with either resort. We like the food court at CBR better and maybe the beauty of CBR but we liked both and found you just can't go wrong staying on site at WDW. We were at POR before the refurb so we see the same basics. We do a family thing and it is Linda and I plus both daughters and their families. Nine in all with three rooms and our vote after this trip that we will be back to both but probably CBR first. We blame Lisa but it is a nice kind of blame.

We have decided on CBR for next year's vacation but with the news about the room renovations I am reconsidering. Our trip is the last week in May.

Our dates are May 24th to June 7th. I was told that there was a possibility that the refurb would be going on while we are there. They don't have the schedule yet. We decided to stick with the CBR despite the fact that they may be working on the rooms in the hope that we actually get one of the new rooms.

Good choice Lisa - when they refurbed POR they shut down a whole complex at a time then moved on and it started late fall and no one was in a complex under refurb. Most was done by June and The Princes rooms that were not ready in March, the guests were offered Deluxe Resorts which went way over the top.

I agree with the prior posters, you won't know the difference.
They do the reno in blocks, and other than perhaps seeing crates or workers in and around a particular building (where you won't be staying, just walking past) you probably won't have a clue they are doing it while you're there, if they are.

Just think - a block of rooms off-line means that many fewer people checked in and waiting in line in front of you for food or a bus

I'm sure that we'll be fine even if the refurb is going on while we are there. I've got to call the lady back this week because I mistakenly gave her the wrong dates. I may ask her about the queen beds but don't want her to think that I'm being a nosey rosey. I'm not quite sure that she was even supposed to tell me what she did.

We have stayed in Jamaica, Martinique (both preferred and non-preferred), Aruba and Barbados. Our longest walk to Old Port Royale was about 7 minutes and that was from the furthest building in Barbados. Most of our walks were about 5 minutes. Even my 79 year old mother could make the walk so it's not bad at all.

The main pool, arcade, food court, marina and pool bar are all at Old Port Royale.

There are bus stops, laundry facilities and quiet pools in each resort village so you are never far from one.
