if you have a car they have complimentary parking. Otherwise there is a shuttle that runs from the lost and found at the TTC to the speedway. I would say take a bus to the MK, then the monorail or a boat to the TTC to catch the shuttle. You could also take a bus to Epcot and the monorail to the TTC from Epcot, but I think that would take longer.

I'm not sure who the studio is booking through, as we've only just learned about it. I'd be very interested to know how everything is working for your group, though!

FP+ may be quite different. We had to book our tickets through Disney youth programs. This was not done until much later so I am not sure how this will work with FP+ as your MDE is tied to your park tickets, but I would guess Disney will have a plan. The good news is the group tickets are at a very good discount. Like $211 for a 7 day park hopper (that was 2 years ago)

For the resorts we were given the option of all star, POR, POFQ, CBR, and CSR. Deluxe are not open for youth groups, I can't imagine why We chose moderate because we are not fans of the value resorts. The resort room block is separate from the ticket package. So people from your group can stay at another resort or the entire group can stay off resort. However, to qualify for the Disney group resort discount you have to have a certain number of rooms and people. I really encouraged everyone to stay with the group so our entire group can keep the discount. It is $50 a night off the room rate per room. Plus it was more fun for us. We all met at the pool, watched the evening movies, caught the bus together to the parks. Part of the fun with the big group is experiencing some things together.

There are also some really fun special group events you can do. We had a private breakfast at the dinosaur club in AK and got to be the first people to ride Everest for the day. There are also private fireworks parties, either buffet or dessert, and a buffet at Fantasmic, and a fantasy gardens dance party. These are really fun because they are only available for the youth programs. It feels very VIP for the kids.
Thanks! Surely there will be a plan in place for both dining and fastpass plus. Not to mention that DH and I are thinking about booking the bass fishing excursion at CBR for our resort rest day. We'd need to be able to do that. At the parent meeting, they said that we would be dancing one day, and the rest would not be scheduled and would be spent however we pleased, depending on how many days we would like to stay. They've also said we'll have dates and more info in August, so I'm going to not spazz out until at least then. When they send out all of the detailed information then, if it doesn't answer some questions about ADR's, etc, then I'll ask questions.

We've done Dance the World twice (we own a dance school) and it is fantastic! World Class Vacations is excellent. Your rooming sheets are turned in by October so you will have a res number before 180 days. You will have 3 things that are required on days of the trip: there's s 2 hour practice on the first night of the trip (the kids are bused there with the studio owners), the day of the parade, the dancers get on the buses 2 hours before parade step-off (count on about 4-5 hours for the parade stuff) and then the Hollywood studios performance will be about 2-3 hrs of your time. We do a DTD disney performance instead of DHS but you have to audition etc and it's extra $$. It's a wonderful trip and the dancers get to be backstage at MK! I can answer questions if you have more

Hello CBR fans

We had a tough resort choice to make a month ago. We had wanted POR but it wasn't available with FD. So we had a choice between CBR and CSR. We talked it over and then I chickened out and went with CSR because we've stayed there before and I knew I liked it. I was a little unsure about trying something new. But that choice has been turning around in my head for weeks now. I decided to look this morning and there was a standard room open (wasn't last time I checked) so we're going for it.
I didn't have any real concerns about CBR, I just was sticking with the familiar. But we've never had a bad stay at Disney, the resort looks beautiful and I'm excited about the refurb so CBR it is.
I dropped our 8 day tickets down to 7 days because we get in later in the afternoon and don't need a ticket that day, and CBR is a bit cheaper so I even shaved about $100 off the total by switching.
Excited to plan with all of you and see the progression of the refurb! Hopefully we will get a refurbed room in late December, but I won't cry if we don't.

CBR 1st Timer :)

We will be staying a CBR 9/13 - 9/20! Never stayed there before and looking forward to it My only concern is that all the beds are full size. Are there any areas of CBR that have queen beds? Thanks so much!

When the refurb is complete, all rooms (with the exception of the pirate rooms) will have queen beds.

Great attitude! I've added your dates.

Excited does not even begin to describe how we all feel. My husband and I have a getaway planned in July and all I talk about is disney in November.

I'm slightly bummed about the new decor I saw in the pictures, hopefully they had some color! But we rarely hang around the room so it's not that big of a deal. We decided to go to a mod because we got bumped up a dining plan level for around 300 bucks which is more than worth it for us.

Me, DH, DS, and niece are going. It will be my nieces first real visit to to WDW, she went to MK for a day with my in laws a few years ago. We will eating our TS meals together but the kids, both 17 will be heading off by themselves throughout the parks.
You've been added!

Awesome! Sounds like you have a great mindset going into a Disney vacation. With Caribbean Beach, I'm fairly confident you will come away impressed and not regret the switch. We'll be going in late October for our 2nd stay at CBR. We can't wait to go back.

We are staying Dec 12-19, 2014 and I'm worried about reno during that time. This is our first time at CBR, we normally stay at POR. :-)
