We stayed in Trinidad South 2 years ago, mostly because we wanted to give DS something "boyish" amongst all of the princess character meals & autographs we were doing for DD. We loved the rooms!

As far as the walk, it's really not as bad as it seems. DS was 6 and DD 3 at the time (no stroller) and we could do the walk from our room to OPR in about 10 minutes, 15 if we really lingered. It's a beautiful walk along a paved path, and we actually enjoyed the change of pace from the rest of the trip where we were rushing from one thing to another!

Any building recommendations for a large family trip? Standard rooms.

Fil will want to go to food court daily for something hot for breakfast...we will have 6 kids ranging from 3 to 12 so we'd like to be close to bus stop. Our trip is in November so while I think we'll head to the pool some days we probably won't be going daily....

Our favorite is Jamaica 45. Very short stroll across the bridge to OPR and the main pool. Aruba 51 is also very nice. The great thing about CBR is every village has its own bus stop so no matter where you are, you are never far from one.

[QUOTE=turtlebean;49251027]We were there about 2 weeks ago. We were in Martinque building 25 and there was no fridge.


BOOO!! Hope they are working on it and it will change in the next couple of weeks. Hoping for some pixie dust!!

First stay at CBR this Dec. wanted PO Riverside but no rooms left there with the free dining. We were told to keep checking back for available rooms. But with these positive things being said about CBR by people who love it, I think we will just let it be and enjoy the anticipation of WDW in Dec!! So excited!

I was in the same situation. I was booked for POR but switched because there was no FD dining rooms available. I've read this entire thread and can't wait to stay at CBR!!! I'm so glad I switched!!! 69 days to go.
