I'm pretty easy to please. I'll be fine even if I get ground floor and not a corner room, that would just be ideal. I am at the parks open to close so while I will spend time at CBR the location isn't that important to me. I'm fine with walking where I need to go, I'll be able to see more of the resort that way!

Did my online check in and when I went to special request my options were love bug, toy story, 101 Dalmatians, near elevator... Have no idea how to fix this and be able to request Jamaica.

That's odd. Those are buildings at All Star Movies. Did your reservation confirmation show Caribbean Beach? It sounds like a computer glitch. I'd call Disney Travel directly and make the requests.

Yikes That's the options for ASmovies.

I would call and check. I just checked in yesterday I was given lower floor, 2nd floor, water view and the buildings name each to choose from.


Good luck

Yes my reservation is for cbr. I double checked just to make sure it wasn't a computer glitch. I talked to a Disney cm about two weeks ago and had her put in my request for Jamaica. I wanted to do online checkin so my room would hopefully be ready bc I arrive at 9:30am. I don't understand why they are giving me them options.

If it were me, I'd go ahead and do online check in, give it a few hours and then call to make sure that the online check-in went through and that your requests were still noted.

I know! I couldn't believe it when I looked at my pictures and didn't see pics of the room. What a bad Diser I was!

We're not long back and the place was absolutely fantastic.

Wouldn't hesitate to go back and maybe do a bit more lazying around the resort as we were up and around a lot, so didn't take in as much time as I'd have liked. Actually I never even got to the play area on the beaches dotted around for our little one.

Stayed in Pirates Room which is one of the furthest away in Trinidad South, but it was a 7 minute leisurely stroll to the front door of OPR. Absolutely nothing and makes me laugh about people making out that you'd need to be Seb Coe to stay here.

FD
Great feedback! We're going in October and staying in a Pirate Room. I agree with you on the Seb Coe comment! 7 minutes is nothing! x

Are there any updates in regards to the refurbished rooms? I read earlier on this thread that it said it would start in 2014, but the pictures on the other site were posted in March of this year. We've always avoided staying here because I thought the rooms were a little ugly, but these new rooms look nice!

Everything I've read says they will start in 2014. We were there last month and had new white linens but that was all that was different.
