thanks

It is great to have all that information in the beginning of this new thread. I can hardly wait to get there. We are staying one night only at Pop and then 7 wonderful nights at CBR. I really appreciate all the information I have received here. Thanks for all the great work.

We are going to CBR in Dec. We will be staying at Martinique or Trinnad North. Out of the two which ones do you recommend and should it be first floor or second floor. We don not mind the stairs because we don't have any strollers to bring up.

Can't advise on the section as we're leaving for our first stay at CBR on Tuesday - but, with strollers not being an issue, I'd go for the second floor just to minimize the noise.

Did you pay extra? Those are preferred locations. Martinique is a little closer to the food court and it is easier to see the Epcot fireworks from that beach. You can't go wrong with either location.

We honeymooned at CBR in June and had the perfect King bed honeymoon room 4252 in Jamaica. It wouldn't hurt to ask!

Is there any word on when the refridgerators will be installed in the rooms?

If not, what is the charge per night, and when do you need to request them?

Thanks!!

I really love these CBR threads!!!

They are working on installing them now. There have been reports when you ask for one in a room that doesn't have one the refrig. is free.

Hi Everyone!
I am so excited to have found this thread!
This is my first official post/question...

My husband and I are planning our first trip to WDW and we are staying at the CBR with our two kids ages 4 and 2
Jan 5, 2005. We requested to stay in building 26 (A friend suggested this building).

I have a few questions, hopefully someone can help me with...

Is this building a good location as far as the transportation to the resorts, and to the main area/pool?

Also, how long do you think the average travel time will be to/from the parks this time of year?

One last question...Any thoughts of how crowded the parks are this time of year?

I am already having panic attacks just thinking about going on such a major trip with them! I just want to make sure we are close to the transportation in case we need to make a quick return to our room.

Actually, if anyone has any helpful tips, it would be much appreciated!

Thanks in advance!!!!

Welcome to the DIS.

You will get more replies if you break up your questions to different boards. The transportation issues can be answered on the transportation board. How crowded the park is can be answered by "experts" on the theme park board.

Building 26 is a preferred location costing extra nightly to stay there. Have you paid for this location?

Many people have suggested Jamaica as a great location if you don't want to spend the extra money for a preferred location.

You may want to check out the CBR FAQ thread #1 listed below. I also have lots of pictures of the resort.

You will love CBR. It is a beautiful resort.

We just got back. Requested a ground floor in Jamaica with no problem. We were in building 45, and it was an awesome location. Close to the bus stop, close to the beach and playground, and just a quick trip over the bridge to the food court and main pool. The pool in our village was closed for rehab, but no problem - my DD preferred the main pool anyway.

By the way, there was already a refrigerator in our room.

We had a great time!

I have rooms booked there for Nov/Dec I am traveling alone with 2 small children. Do you think they will take pity on me and give me a first floor room?

I don't think you will have a problem getting a first floor room.

I requested a ground floor when I got there - the Jamaica request was noted on my reservation - but I hated to have too many requests listed on there, so I just waited until I got there for that one. I had no problem whatsoever - we got there about 7:00 p.m. I would just have it noted on your reservation, but I don't think you'll have a problem either.
