    We usually buy two half gallons because I'm never sure if the gallon will fit. We have been able to put in two half gallons, some bottled water and canned drinks in with no problems. I do have a picture of the fridge in both of my trip reports. You can click on either one to have a look.

    We were just there last week. We got 2 half gallons because they fit on the door and it left plenty of room for every thing else

    I thought I'd post a picture of the fridge for you. I know I have another one somewhere with all of our stuff in it but I can't find it right now.

    Our trip is now only about a month and a half away and I am getting really excited! We have never done express check in and was wondering if it's worth it. I have requested Jamaica and am thinking of narrowing my request to buildings 44 or 45, but don't know if doing this will work with express online check in. Any advice?

    Going there second week in October.

    Usually have stayed at CSR, my concern is the buses but I am getting such mixed feedback. So that is a concern. Just adults traveling waiting usually never bothers us but 40 mins to get to MK! Is that just a rumor or will that be a timeframe I should be prepared for?

    We've never stayed @ CBR before and I really hope waiting that long for buses is not the case!

    We've gone in the summer and in the winter and we have never waited longer than 15 minutes for a bus. Now at the parks waiting to return to the resort that's a different story, we have waited up to 20 or more for that.

    Ok CBR experts ... if our flight arrives in Orlando at 1pm and we are using ME, how early could we be at EPCOT?

    How big are the internal buses?
    Does it matter which bus stop I stand @ to get to a park, or do the park buses only go to a specific bus stop?
    I don't remember internal buses when we stayed there in the 90s, I think they had a shuttle van or something to get us from the check in area to our room?
    I can do on line check in and don't know if I should request Martinique 25 or 26, or Trinadad 31, we're staying pref to be close to the food court, I am undecided as to where we should request.

    Also, my parents are checking in the day after, never used on line check in can we both request to be next to each other?

    The internal buses are the same size as all Disney buses. You can't take your luggage on the internal buses. However, you can call Bell Services and ask them to come help you take your luggage to the Custom House,

    The buses (internal and park buses) go to each and every bus stop. Just go to the bus stop for your village and wait for the bus to whichever park you are visiting comes by.

    We really enjoyed our stay in Martinique 26. We were so close to Old Port Royale that we used the bus stop there more than we did the Martinique bus stop.

    How far out can you do online check in and has everyone had pretty good luck getting requests met? If you request Jamaica 44 or 45 is that too specific?

    You can do on-line check-in 10 days prior to your arrival, not any sooner. The system is designed to tell you its too soon, if you go earlier. We book preferred and we always request Martinique and we've always gotten our requests, but we don't ask for a specific building. I don't know if that has anything to do with it.
