Hopefully, when the refurb happens, there will be queen beds and a new décor. I, for one, would like to see some splash of color somewhere in the room since it would go with the tropical theme of the resort.

I've walked over to Trinidad South where the pirate rooms are located and my walk back over to Old Port Royale (food court, marina, etc.) was about 7 minutes so it's not that bad. However, if there were small kids in tow, I can understand that it might be a longer walk.

I guess that makes sense. A splash of color wouldn't hurt though. Don't want them to look too much like Poly either.
Either way I'm hoping that really is a Murphy bed...I need another family of 5 option!

Hey everyone!!

I think I convinced DBF to go to CBR this December!! I love WDW at Christmas and I think his 2 DS's will completely love it! WHOOHOO SO EXCITED!!!



So, I've finally finished reading the entire thread lol and I think I got all my questions answered except one.

The pirate cruise.. One of the boys will be 3 years and 9 months, lol what does anyone think are the odds I can still get him on it?

Are you asking if he would be scared to get on it? or would he still be interested in pirates? My 3 yr old grandson can't wait to see pirates, so I know he will love it. He's also an adrenaline junkie. We just finished watching Jumanji and he wouldn't let me turn it off. Just kept saying during some parts, "this is creepy".

I can't wait to get him on the Pirate Cruise.

Oh no, I KNOW he would love it but it says it is for ages 4-12, so that has me totally wondering if I can sneak him on.

It is against disboards policy to ask if it is allowable to skirt around Disney policy. Be advised your thread may be closed. Age requirements are set for safety reasons and should in NO way be taken lightly.

Oh shoot, I'm so sorry!!! I just wanted to know if anyone knew if it was possible if a child who was almost 4 would be allowed on the cruise. So, that being said, I'm guessing that's a no..

Dangit, looks like we will just have to make another trip back. WHOOHOO!

The answer is no. The last time we went my oldest was old enough to go, but my youngest was just a couple months shy of 4 and was not allowed to go.


As for the beds at CBR: prior to refurb (since we don't know if they're upgrading the beds or not) are they the same size as the doubles in a Value Resort?

I'm sorry I miss understood you. I think I did see that one that was for 4-12 year olds. I also thought it said, they wouldn't be accompanied by an adult family member. So I gave that one no more thought.

We are going to do the "Pirates & Pals Fireworks Voyage". It sounds like a blast for us all and I know the 3 year old will love it. You might consider that one.

Sorry for the confusion.

Just booked CBR for November!!!! This is our first time staying here and we are SUPER excited!!!

We just got back from WDW a couple weeks ago and stayed at the TRV at SSR with my FIL and mom and had so much fun we decided to upgrade our tickets to Annual Passes and come back ASAP! Our DD is 2 so we are taking advantage of free park admission and her being able to eat off our dinner plates one last time.

I'm looking forward to going through this thread and reading everything that CBR has to offer.
