Any other families of five moving over to CBR from POR?

We have finally decided to stay at CBR for this years trip. I am going to miss POR but am so excited for the change. POR has been our home away from home for the past 4 summers!

CBR doesn't have elevators so if you don't want to traipse up and down stairs, ask for a first floor room.

I'm not a family of 5 but it's one of the reasons why I haven't gone back to that resort after staying there - I don't like first floor rooms but I also don't like having to use the stairs all the time after being in the parks all day.

So glad to see my first love at WDW, CBR, getting the upgrades it deserves (queen beds! Room for a 5th!).

IIRC, all buildings are only 2 floors, so, we have never found elevators a neccssity for people without mobility issues. It's only a handful of stairs.

We don't do ground floor, either (too friendly of ducks at CBR!), and the stairs have never been given even a moment's thought!

ETA - we ask for 4th floor at Pop and don't use the elevators, either. I guess I am a) just used to walking so much already during the day...what's another minute or so and 2) figure it is just more calories I can consume

Families of five can only stay in Alligator Bayou at POR and there are no elevators in AB.

Now I do not remember what floor we stayed on but I do remember at POP the elevators being slow when we stayed there so I used to take the stairs all the time too!

The only time an elevator would be nice is bringing the luggage in and out. I'm fine with stairs
