    Just wanted to thank Mickeystoontown for the links to her awesome CBR photos...we decided to book the resort for our last-minute trip thanks to her! We leave on Wednesday for a quick 5 night stay. We are looking forward to a relaxing trip this time, spending more time enjoying resort vs. commando at the parks. Can't wait!!

    PS: This is also a shameless plug for my 3,000th post! :cool1:

    Planning a surprise Disney trip this summer. Trying to talk DH into taking advantage of the spring discounted rooms and go in June. Thinking of staying at CBR in a preferred room. This board is definitely making me excited!!

    Planning to book a preferred room, requesting Martinique. Would you request a certain building still? Would it be possible to get a water view preferred room?

    Yes it's possible to get a water view in a preferred room. Because of it's orientation, I believe Martinique 25 has the most water view rooms for looking at the lake. Martinique 24 has the most rooms overlooking the quiet pool. Both pool and lake views are considered water views. :thumbsup2

    We'll be there soon too! Our first time staying at a moderate. I am so excited!! Hope it's warm enough for the boys to enjoy the kid's water play area. Heh. Even if it's not hot I bet they'll still attempt it. :)

    A little bummed. We had to change our reservations. My MIL won't be able to watch the kids so I am changing it to a family vacation we will be staying at POP now. Need 2 rooms and we can afford POP. Not giving up on CBR though. I will make it one day. :)

    We will arrive the 8th of June but I am not happy as our friends are going the week before at $89 each way flight. A week later we pay almost $700. Nuts? Anyone know of a cheep flight for June 8th from Chicago to Orlando? Boo Hoo Boo Hoo.

    They say the best day to buy tickets is on Tuesday at 3pm and the best day to fly is Wednesday. That is a crazy difference.

    well we did it...we added up the vacation fund and managed to jump ship today from the ASMu to our beloved CBR! We didnt manage to make the pirate room, just a standard room but we are overjoyed that we managed to stretch the budget to get in CBR we love it so much. We requested either Aruba or Jamaica....( for some funny reason she just laughed and said "em NO maam" when I wanted to request a pirate room..lol) oh well cant blame a gal for trying right?? heheh We will be arriving May 5th till May 11th and are flying this year instead of driving. Our 4 yr old is desperate to get on a plane so he will be so excited to find out hes finally getting to fly. 10 weeks to go!! we cant wait. We havnt told the kids yet, for obvious reasons of not having our ears chewed of with "are we going yet" we will wait till a little nearer the time.. ahhhhh CBR...Im coming back to see youuuuuuuuuu my little piece of paradise in the sun.:)

    I just booked our September trip for CBR. We've stayed the last 2 times at POFQ, but wanted to try something different this time around. Looking forward to it!

    We just got back from a week at CBR (February 13th - 20th) had stayed here twice before, but switched to POFQ last year. Returning to CBR waS HEAVEN! I love the CBR even more now. We had a great trip. The resort was absolutely beautiful. Housekeeping was incredible. Pool was so much fun. There wasn't one negative about staying here. The busses were there every 10-15 minutes. We NEVER waited for a bus. We stayed at Jamaica building 44. Perfect location. We rented a boat one afternoon and drove around the neighboring waterways. We only had a 5 minute walk across Caribbean Cay to Old Port Royale. Food court was so good. Never crowded and always great cast members. I envy you all and your upcoming trips. Soak up every minute...the Disney hangover hits hard :rolleyes2
