Hi donna6635!

The website I found was coffeeking.com. At the top, they have a link for "Single Serve Pods". The website carried New England Coffee so I grabbed a box of breakfast blend and hazelnut.

According to another website I found (coffeewiz.com), these 61mm pods should fit the machine. This website had a Compatibility list of coffee pods and coffee pod machines.

Hope it works out for you!

Help!

I know every hotel/restaurant has mixed reviews, but why is CBR in the lead on many sites? No queen beds, too large of a resort, bad bus service with too many stops. The list can go on.

Based on pics and you tube videos I'm in love! My plan is to try and upgrade tomorrow from Pop. Please tell me I'm not making a bad decision!

My fam is 2 adults, 4yo and 14 mos old. I am with 2 other families for a total of 10. We are there for 8d/7n, planning 2 1/2 days at the hotel. We are only getting 5 days of tickets.

Read my ticker. I have stayed at the best and yet I am going back to CBR in 13 short days.

It has beautiful grounds and theming. For my family we now need deluxe because we have teen boy and girl but for mom n me trips I usually do value or mod.

Also for upcoming mom and me we are bringing dd's BFF for 1st disney resort stay and dd and I thought she would love this resort

It was my first disney resort stay and still love it after 17 years.

If it appeals to you in video and pics.... Wait until you see it in person... WOW

Just got back a couple of days ago from a 2 wk. stay at CBR. We were in Jamaica, which we requested. This was the 5th time we stayed at CBR and in Jamaica, are favorite location!! I didn't notice any refurbs going on. The only difference in the room was the bedspreads were gone and the same design of the bedspread was like a table runner drapped at the end of the bed. There were 2 white sheets and a blanket on the bed. Like always the beds are so comfortable. But would be great if they change to queens. Housekeeping and bus serviice was great, no problems! The other thing everyone was wondering about was if there would be fridges in the room and the answer is YES! When checking in I even asked and they didn't even know what I was talking about. The fridge actually looked new. We had a nice time but had a lot of rain almost everyday but not all day. I would recommend for anyone who is trying to decide to stay here, to stay here!! We love it and we don't mind the walk across the bridge. It's beautiful!! I miss it already!!

Those are exactly the reasons why some of us are not in love with CBR. The bed size, how large the resort is, and the fact that it has 7 bus stops.

However, CBR is also a very pretty resort. If you want to relax go sit by the beach and watch the ducks swimming around. And I think your kids will love the theme pool.

For me, the number of bus stops is the main reason CBR is not at the top of my list. We boarded at the first stop, so we had to sit through 6 more before heading out to the parks. It got a bit frustrating. But you can fix that by booking a preferred room.

Go and have a great time!

The order changes depending on which entrance the bus uses. It's either Jamaica or Martinique.

Just booked CBR today for our trip 11/23-11/29 and we got free dining. We have never stayed here before. I got a preferred room. What are should we request? We have two little girls 3 and 6. I hope they will enjoy the resort! I would love to hear from CBR veterans about the pros and cons of the resort

You will love the food court and pool! I never notice the cons when you at a WDW resort. It is all what you make of it. Yes there can be problems but why ruin your vacations dwelling on them. You wait in line at the parks but an extra 5-20 minute wait at a bus stop you complain. I waited at the only dole whip outlet in MK for 45min so what is different at the resort? Get real people you are so lucky to be at WDW!!!! Don't let anything get you down or vacation is over.
