Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

As we're renting a car, we'll probably go to Walmart the night we arrive or something to pick up some drinks, breakfast stuff etc.

I of course want Mickey waffles for breakfast! Looking forward to one every morning for breakfast before hitting the parks :D (can you order one plain, no toppings or meat or anything? How much less does it cost?)

Is anyone else surprised they built the Pirate Rooms in Trinadad South? Considering most of the busses come in the side gate that makes this village the last stop which during peak times of the year can make for having to wait for the next bus. Given the fact that the Pirate Rooms are an upgraded fee I would have thought they would have put them in a more desirable location...like Barbados or something. No?

I think they did that in purpose. That way they could make undesirable rooms desirable.

ETA: on purpose. Silly autocorrect.

I'm pretty sure that Trinidad South was the least desirable/requested villages and Disney decided that there had to be a way to change that. Thus, the idea of the pirate rooms. For what it's worth, Trinidad South is not always the last bus stop. It's sometimes, in the middle of the bus route.

I'm not sure if our time is deemed 'peak' but we stayed from 28th June to 3rd July and the buses were fine, loads of seating space.

Question Question on CBR coffee makers

Hi all-

Just curious on the coffee maker used at CBR. Based on what I've read on these boards, it sounds like it's a Cuisinart model that uses coffee "pads" and you can brew one or two individual cups at the same time.

Has anyone been able to use their own filters and ground coffee in this machine? I was thinking of bringing small (4-cup) filters but wasn't sure if the coffee maker would still "work".

Thanks!

The coffee makers are, indeed, the kind that use the "pads". The "pads" slide into a small drawer at the top and I'm almost positive that regular coffee filters won't work. Maybe you could see if your local grocery store sells the pad type coffees in your favorite brand.

You're welcome! My hubby said that he's going to see if Folgers carries the pads since that's his favorite brand.

My DH went to,the food court at CBR and bought a small Mickey French Press and some small cans of flavored coffee. He ran the water through the coffee pot into a cup and used that for the press.

I hadn't thought of that. Smart thinking.

Just found a website that sold about 1/2 dozen brands of coffee (and some tea) pods. They had one of our local brands (sorry mickeystoontown - no Folgers!) so I got a couple of boxes. Even with the shipping cost, it's only about $0.60 a cup.

Another item to pack (including our soft sided cooler as our "Plan B" refrigerator)...

Thanks again for the assistance!
