So glad you're having such a great experience!!! I love CBR!! We're staying at a family suite at AoA this time because we got a great deal, but I'm really nervous I'm going to wish we had just gone back to CBR instead! I always feel so relaxed and peaceful when I'm there.

We love CBR. Will be there in Dec. The staff there went above and beyond what they needed to do for my granddaughers birthday a year ago. The grounds are beautiful, and there are time, you feel like the only one there. we don't do commando anymore, so can wait for a bus if we have to. I am on vacation, and not in a real hurry. Glad you like it. We were upgraded to a pirate room a few years ago. Pretty neat!

Will the decor stay the same or will they be changing the bed spreads? Please post pics of the updated rooms.
Also wondering if anyone else have stayed at POR and CBR, so hard to leave the resort you know you like to try another one.

The rumored décor will be totally different....lots of natural/tan colors. There were pictures of what are supposedly the new rooms on another discussion board. Here's the link to those pictures: http://s1291.photobucket.com/user/fl...d343c.jpg.html

There has been no confirmation that this is what the rooms will look like. I was only told that there will be a refurb and that they are getting queen beds.

We haven't stayed at POR but did stay at POFQ and we liked the CBR much better. Having said that, we are from Louisiana so the whole Southern theme didn't wow us since we see it every day.

I am hoping the pictures are what the rooms look like and those murphy beds are true..would make our stay there in Sept even better!

Nice Wish this would come true this December, girl can dream can't I. We have a trip next Oct. and need that murphy bed. Was thinking we would have to go to POR (didn't really like it there last year), now we have hope for next year's trip. This pix are giving it a Hawaiian feel to me. I like it

Tom- When do you check in? I'll be there next Saturday!! Yayyyy!

Wow. I hope those room pics are legit. That would be great to have another mod sleep 5 like POR.

YAY!

And the rooms look fantastic!

Then a bunch of people started commenting on it
I wondered if people really lived there and got to watch them every night

Where would the fridge go though? I don't see a fridge cupboard. And will they be in every building or just selected buildings? A murphy bed is nice for big families but you lose a drawer of storage space for those who aren't.

I think it is the way the buildings are laid out. And the fact that they are all 2 stories high, which is not the case at any other moderate. The other moderates all have buildings which go higher up.

You can also look at it this way: CBR has 7 bus stops. POR and CSR only have 4. So if you get on a bus at the first stop at CBR you have twice as many stops to wait through as you would at the other moderates. I didn't think it would bother me as much as it did. It didn't wreck my stay at CBR, but it does make me think twice about staying there in the future.

maxiesmom.. there may be more bus stops but there is no more people at CBR than the other mods! i guess I would think that the time you wait to fill the bus at a stop is the same amount of time you will take to go to another stop and fill the bus??? just sayin, no flames just a question/statement...

We have stayed at both and know what you are saying. We were, well actually we still are, big fans of POR and POFQ. We made a last minute decision to head to the World during Free Dining a couple years ago and CBR was the only moderate available. After booking I started researching CBR and got really nervous with some of the bad reviews and worried that we were not staying at POR. Well after 7 awesome nights at CBR we now can't seem to stay anywhere else. Our last 4 trips have been to CBR. Some of the things I read people complain about ended up being positives to us. WDW definitely has a resort for just about everyone and we found ours!
