IMHO the bus service at CBR was ok. We were comparing to POR The biggest issue was the DTD bus. We waited a LONG time for that and saw every theme park bus at least twice before 1 DTD bus. Of course, we were missing our water taxi from POR at that point... oh well, live and learn

I found the bus service to be better at CBR than POR. We stayed in the Jamaica rooms.

Our issue was the number of stops at CBR . We were in Jamaica which was first and it took 20 minutes just to get out of the resort because there are so many stops. On the flip side we were always the first ones off at night. People at the last stop always had to stand.

I asked to be in Jamaica so we would be by the first stop, because I had my 70+ dad on the trip with me, and I wanted him to have a seat on the bus. But it did make for some long rides around the resort.

We have stayed at CBR seven times, and we have only had one bus issue on the day we were leaving. I really think, at one time or another, every resort has some type of bus issues. The one time we stayed at POR, we had bus issues our whole trip.

I was there 4 years ago and I found the whole experience to be underwhelming. This is the one resort I would never go back to. Buses were crowded and the lines were horrible. Sorry to have to tell you that if this is where you are booked, but better to be forewarned. I even found the staff to be WAY under Disney expectations.

I have stayed at each of the mods and i agree with this. It's just a matter of knowing what the potential issues are and being prepared.

We were there in August Twice and are staying again this year after staying at AKL last time. Honestly, sometimes its great and sometimes not. Which is the same thing at AKL. At AKL I think we waited 25 mins for a bus and then the driver seem to take a 5 min break while we were waiting on the bus. So really don't let the transportation ruin anything. You will get there and it will be great. My only complaint is that it seems like the area from the park on the bus the walk to that "bay" is always the farthest away.

I think the waits can vary from trip to trip honestly. When we stayed there, we never waited a long time for buses to come. The problem was that in leaving and coming back, the multiple bus stops make it so you are on the bus forever, and that's what annoyed us.

I agree. The buses came frequently enough. It was that darned ride around the resort that made me a bit crazy.
