There is nooooo way I'm sharing a double with my husband... I will end up locking him out of the minivan and driving home without him.

Is there enough floor space to do an air matress for DS6?

OMG ...... We have been going to WDW for Years, and have never checked out CBR until today. We usually stay deluxe and are wrapping up a split say of 12 days. GF and BC. We have been so turned off of the BC because of the horrendous bus situation that we ran over to CBR to check it out.
Impressed is not a good enough word to describe how we felt about CBR. We absolutely fell in love with it ! We ate in the awesome food court area, checked out the pools, and the awesome grounds. Caribbean Cay was really nice. Jamaica looks to appeal to us very much. LOVE this resort and we so want to stay there on our next trip .......... BUT the double beds are not going to work. NO WAY are we going from a king at home to doubles on vacation ! Queens we can deal with, but doubles would be a deal breaker. I heard rumors of a refurb soon and possibly queen beds being added to the resort. Any truth to that rumor ???? If queens are in the works we are DEFINITELY STAYING at CBR on our next trip. We LOVE it. Can't believe it took us so long to figure out what we have been missing!

Our first stay our car never moved until we checked out and drove home. Since then we fly and don't get a rental and have never regretted it.

I read this from another thread, so I haven't tried it myself especially as this will be our first time at CBR. But someone said that if they're in a building far out, they drive their car to the front of the resort for breakfast and leave it there for the day. This way they are close to one of the first bus stops. Said other benefit was at the end of night, able to grab refillable mugs from car for a last fill up before they head to room. Also not a long work to room with tired legs.

I'm trying to decide on what kind of room request to make and this post caught my eye. How did you decide on a corner room...does it have a window on two walls instead of one? Just guessing.

Yes, it does. There's a picture here: http://www.tripadvisor.com/LocationP...o_Florida.html

You can choose a corner room when you do online check-in 60 days before your check-in date.

Can anyone report on how the fridge recall is going at this resort? The website reports it can take up to 4 months but some of the other resorts are reporting all done with replacing the fridges. Staying first 2 weeks in oct with a infant who is on milk that needs to be stored in a fridge, so we really must have one. Thanks gang.

My decision has nothing to do with windows. I like a corner room as you only have a neighbor on 2 sides versus 3, so it can potentially be a quieter room. I'm a light sleeper so less noise equals better sleep for me.

Same here. We get two rooms when we travel to Disney and we've lucked out and gotten one of them as a corner room each time without even asking. Not only do I like that you don't have someone on one side, but I love having the two windows. To me, it just seems to make the room feel bigger.

How seriously will Disney take me if I make multiple request upon doing online check in.

I'll be requesting Martinique, Bldg. 22, Corner Room, Bottom Floor (Stroller for 2 year old, not taking that down stairs! LOL). I'll be requesting a fridge too if they don't have that handled by that time.

How has everyones request been handled? Do you often get what you ask for?

We booked a king room last time( just me and dd17) and had the corner room. I loved the extra window.

Allears has a video of the corner room there too.

That is my question too. I would like to get a room facing the water and a standard room as close as I can get to the main pool and on the second floor. Do they let you prioritize when making request or is it better to request just one thing that is most important to you?
