We decided to finally cross CBR off our list. It was one of those "hafta" stays this time as it always seemed so easy to change away from this resort at the last minute. I was determined to keep this ressie. Oh boy, was it a PLEASANT SURPRISE. We did it up right with a Pirate Room (while in Rome and all that...). The atmosphere is very relaxed, but I've always thought that of all the Mods. The proximity to quiet pool, bus stop, and our car was one of the most convenient we've every had. We could see our bus stop, the river, and the quiet pool from our windows. Bus service rocked, too, with never more than a 10 minute wait. I'll recommend CBR in a heartbeat. I actually think the Floribbean atmosphere would be the more appealing Mod for non-Floridian visitors. Very pretty. I guess it gets a bad rap because of only offering bus transportation?

At the Parks, FP+ and Bands worked pretty well. We actually got on Seven Dwarfs Mine Train with a short wait! Since FP+ times were long gone by the time we planned our trip, we waited 'til pretty late at night to even attempt to ride and hoped for the best. The posted standby wait time was 85 minutes which we were prepared to do. In actuality, only 35 minutes and we were on. I wonder what any of you guys who have ridden SDMT think of it?


It was a Star Wars weekend at DHS. It was cute to see the park visitors dressed up. And cute to see the character "meet and greets" around the Park. We aren't into Star Wars, but we still enjoyed the vibe.



Tomorrow is our FP+ day for August. Getting excited for that now.
I think tomorrow is our FP+ day too! But I could be counting wrong. Hope to see you in August!

I was luckily with both my pregnancies. My only cravings were anything non-alcoholic Pina Colada (but especially jelly beans), and green grapes. The only things that made me nauseous with both pregnancies was the smell of sour kraut. With the first one, I was working in the kitchen at a day care. The kitchen only had an industrial steamer and over to cook with. When I had to cook chicken and dumplings, I would tear tortillas into a large metal cake pan, fill the pan with water, and steam them in the steamer. The smell of the steamer tortillas made me nauseous.

I'm glad they are so happy.

Unfortunately, it was only in the last 1-2 years of his life that my fil's father was able to win his battle over alcoholism. There are so many more years of drunken phone calls when him cussing my fil out. I think that's what made this one so hard. He was just finally getting the relationship he had always dreamed of having with his father, when he killed himself.

Thank you!! It was a blast!! We didn't get to ride the cars racers ride though. We had gone to La Brea that morning, and by the time we got to DCA, the wait stayed about 2 hours. We just didn't want to wait that long for one ride when we only had the one day in the park. The only other bummers for the trip, were not getting to see all of the Golden Gate bridge, due to fog, and not getting a picture of the boys by the boulder in the pic-nic area of Rocky Mountain National Park that my family and I went to for several Summers. The road to the pic-nic area had been washed away. Then again, something good came out of the last one, since the DH promised to take us back once the road is fixed. I would really love to go back to CA. This time, I would like to spend more time in San Francisco and Northern CA. Hmmm, maybe we could do that for our anniversary next year instead of a cruise.

Hi Pas! He gets his cast off July 1st so I'm hoping he will be strong enough to walk. If not, we will get him a wheelchair.

I'm sorry to hear about your son.
We actually started the summer off with injury as well, with DD10 getting a concussion last week. Luckily, it was only a mild one, and while she had to miss her last day of school and softball this past weekend, she seems to be doing fine now.
Yikes! That's scary. How did it happen? I'm glad she is recovering well. It stinks for the kiddos to miss those fun last days of school things. DS had to miss his hiking field trip and field day. Bummer!

Nothing new to report here. On the girls only trip, we're still planning like we're going. I'm just not going to buy my flight to Atlanta, or MVMCP tickets until he passes. On our next family vacation, I'm still trying to convince the hubby to do a cruise next Summer for our 20th. I'm insisting on a balcony. I have a slight claustrophobic problem and I don't like the idea of being in an inside room with no window. Plus I love the idea of being able to sit on the balcony while the guys get dressed. When we're on vacation, I'm always the first one up and first one dressed.
He is in a hard cast with a walking boot over top. His cast is waterproof so he walk and swim now, just no jumping around or really anything a 9 year old boy likes to do

A cruise for your 20th sounds perfect!

Sounds like a fun trip! CBR seems to have a lot of haters, but I really want to try it someday. It looks so pretty to me!

Hi Janet! Our dates are 7/18-7/29. He should be fine for the trip. He's just a big pain in the butt grumpy-pants right now.

We're starting off with one night AKV (Jambo this time) for some pool/animal viewing time and then a week at Poly CL and ending with 3 nights BWI. (an upgrade to CL is not off of the table if it comes available!)

I'm glad that at least he will be able to swim. Are y'all thinking of renting him a wheelchair, or stroller for the trip?

It does. The crazy thing is, the price is about the same whether we have 2 rooms or 1.

Kim, sure it was bitter sweet for your FIL. Hope he was able to reflect on all the wonderful memories of his father's life.

And I don't think I welcomed you back from your marathon road trip! You put some serious miles on that car. was a road trip!! Happy you had a good time.



Hey Ginny...was thinking of you this weekend Hope you too had a nice father's day (even though the kids weren't there).

and we definitely missed you there!



Oh love the shirts and scarves ideas!!!



Hoping that the second time around is the charm for him



Candace, congrats to all of you! A new baby is such a blessing. Hoping that the next 2 trimesters go much more smoothly for you.



Hi Iheart!!!!!! So happy to see you here! Broken foot hoping he will be able to swim next month. and yay for your Disney plans!! Dates please!

Magic - I would also like to know about the pirate rooms/beds...NOT that I'm looking to change, but if our POR stay works out next month, we may have to try the other mods!

I_heart - triple split?? When in July?

Just over 2 weeks now!! SO excited!!

Sent from my iPad using DISBoards
I am ridiculously excited about shopping I have to admit! DH said I need to look into having things shipped back to the house because we aren't bringing it all home on the plane.

Thanks again!!! Yes, I have no problem with being "forced" into deluxes...in fact, now it's my justification!

I am almost 10 weeks now, and honestly the 1st trimester has been horrible, so I am hoping for better times ahead, especially with our trip coming up. That being said, we have changed to AKL!!! We have an arusha view bunk bed room, which will be perfect for our last trip as a family of four...and we will be able to cross AKL off of our list before we won't be able to stay there anymore. So, that's that! The Mousemommy crew is growing!
Congratulations this is always the best news ... Here's to a healthy and happy baby : )

I am soooo tired right now.....I had set my alarm for midnight last night to do our FP+ selections....and of course! the system was down...

I tried for a good half hour before going back to sleep. Luckily, thanks to my over active bladder right now....I was up again around 4 am and it was all set, so I got all of the FP's we want!

I'm sure I'll do a little tweaking...because FP changing has to be a thing, right??? But for now, I'm happy with what I've got.

For some strange reason I woke up at 4 am, did my online checkin and worked on my FPs. Great way to start the day!!!

Pas130 and Koh1977, I love POP beds, and well, the Deluxes comfort level goes without saying. I personally think Mod beds are the worst on property for comfort. That said, there was a box truck full of new mattresses on the opposite side of the lake at CBR than Pirate Rooms. I think near Aruba. I thought I heard rehab starting of some magnitude. So maybe better mattress quality. Pas: I have my opinions of SDMT, just don't want to spill here.

Wookie, your recent trip sounded wonderful (well, what I read of it anyway). I tried to pop in here to read up on everybody when I could, but I am sure I missed a lot of your reporting.

I tried for a good half hour before going back to sleep. Luckily, thanks to my over active bladder right now....I was up again around 4 am and it was all set, so I got all of the FP's we want!

I'm sure I'll do a little tweaking...because FP changing has to be a thing, right??? But for now, I'm happy with what I've got.
They really need to get some new IT guys and fire Stitch and Animal. I'm glad you were able to finally get the FP's you wanted though.

Wookie, your recent trip sounded wonderful (well, what I read of it anyway). I tried to pop in here to read up on everybody when I could, but I am sure I missed a lot of your reporting.
I was looking at the CBR map, trying to remember which building we were in. I know it was either 34, 35, or 36, but it's been too many years to remember. I walked one night from to our room from Old Port Royale. It was such a quick, but relaxing walk.

It really was a wonderful trip. It gave me ideas for future trips.

Hi Linda! I'm a Plaza fan, especially in the summer and other warmer months when a light dinner works well! I think it's a great value, and I love a table near the window when it's available. The food isn't the best in the world, but it's a nice spot, especially when compared with the other MK dining options.

But mostly, I love the Plaza because the Mayor of Main Street made our youngest son "Jr. Mayor" once and it was a ton of fun! He received a button, an announcement and a FP for any ride in MK. For some reason, our older boys had been "picked" for various shows (Monsters, Inc. etc.) for a stretch, but not our youngest. Having the Mayor walk in and pick our youngest was an unexpected treat for him!
