    We left North Carolina at 4:30 a.m..Making several potty breaks along the way .We also stopped for lunch which was Sonics , I got a Chili Cheese Cony & Chili Cheese Fries w/ Banana Shake, DH had Chicken Wrap w/ Fries & Root Beer,The kiddos got Chicken Tenders,Grilled Cheese&Chesseburger meals, all w/ Fries & Apple Juice Slush's. We made one pretty long stop in St. Augustine at Disney's Character Premier Outlet around 1:00 p.m. . This is a great place to get out and stretch . This store has all the merchandise that they sell at the parks but for 50% off or more, some may be from the past year but it's still amazing what prices there able to sell it for . If you want to check it out it's Exit 318 off 95 in FL . We purchased a Lanyard for me, 2 Pins also for me,the kids also got 2 Pins a piece ,Postcards & Halloween Mickey Votive Holders . We arrived at CBR around 4:00 p.m.. I made it into the check-in line just in time there was a ME bus unloading right on my heels . I got checked-in quickly and found out we were in Aruba room 5307 , on the first floor . I like the first floor location which is what I requested but would have liked to have a location closer to Old Port Royle.

    Here are some pictures of the room & the resort . Sorry there's not a lot but I just didn't care for CBR at all :(

    We headed to our room & unpacked ,by this time it was 5:00 so we headed to DTD and ate at Wolfgang Puck Express. I had Rigatoni w/Chicken Alfredo,DS had Chicken Tenders w/ Fries,DD had Cheese Quesadilla w/ Chips ,DH had A Roast beef Focaccia Sandwich w/ Chips , Baby DS had a little bit of every body's meal. We all had soda's to drink also & were all suppose to get custard for dessert but decide to get cookies to go because we were so full from the meal . The waiter was so nice and gave use way more than one cookie a piece , he gave us a whole bag full !

    After dinner we decide to cruse around the shops at DTD for awhile but didn't buy anything .DD got sprinkled w/ fairy dust from one of the FGMIT at the World Of Disney store as we walked through , she told them she would be back tomorrow to receive the full treatment !

    Here is a picture of DS in Once Upon A Toy Store from that night

    We then headed back to CBR .Took a walk over to see the pool & Old Port Royle . We went into the gift shop & got wallets for DS & DD to put there money in each day cause we left there's behind at home. We also picked up flipflops for DH who wanted to have more than just one pair for the trip ,cause he doesn't where them at home . LOL We then headed back to the room & got settled in for our big day tomorrow BBB,Ohana,MK,HS and meeting up with DBFF & her family .

    Coming Up In Next Post BBB & Lots Of Pictures !

    Great start to your trip. I have never stayed at CBR. What didn't you like about it??

    I can't wait to hear about BBB. On our trip, we have three little princesses who will be visiting there for the first time. I assume it will be the one at World of Disney since that is where you were that first day?. That is where we have our appointment.

    I hope you had a great trip. :)

    I'm with ya girl! Great start. Good eatin'. CBR is okay....not my first choice by any means. I am curious to hear more about why you didn't like it. Also, have you guys ever tried out the military resort right by the MK? Would that not have been cheaper? I hear it's really nice.

    Thanks for joining in on my very first TR :)
    CBR is just way to spread out for us , you have to walk way to far to get to Old Port Royle and the Main Pool.It was even a distance from our room to the laundry & the pool for Aruba . In turn we didn't use there amenities as much as we would have, had the location been better. After walking all day in the Parks , I don't want to have to walk a country mile when I get back just to get a drink etc. , call me lazy I guess ? :lmao:

    Yes, the BBB is the one in DTD and my DD loved it , for DS it was OK probably won't do it with him again , the stuff they put on the boys hair takes way to long to dry. LOL


    Thanks for joining in Tammy :) CBR is just okay like you said, it def will not be a choice for me anymore. CBR was just to spread out for us , I like having the food court near by , main pool and laundry also . Not across two bridges and through the woods . :lmao: Maybe PORFQ spoiled us last year but I like that resort so much better than CBR:thumbsup2
    We've check into Shades Of Green the military resort but decided we against it cause we really love the dinning plan and you can't use it if you stay there . They also don't offer any of the WDW package deals .


    Thanks for joining in :) It was a very cute room that was the one thing I liked about the place . LOL

    I'm in!

    Great start. I used to want to stay at CBR too. Then I have read more and more about how spread out it is. I think it looks so pretty.

    Maybe someday if I win the lottery I'll make a trip to stay in each resort for a night to check them out. LOL!

    First thing we had breakfast at 9:10 a.m. at Ohana . This meal would be enjoyed w/ DBFF and her family . We arrived early & checked out the Ploy's gift shops .

    Here are some pictures we took as we waited :

    DBFF and her family were staying at the GF so we went up to the Monorail drop off to wait on them . They got off and a million hugs were given , this was the first time we had seen them since Christmas ! We then headed over to check-in for our 9:10 a.m. ADR but weren't seated till about 9:20 a.m.. We had the usual Ohana breakfast fare, bread,juice,mickey waffles,eggs,sausage,bacon, and home fries. Our waitress was very slow but the overall meal was very good and the best part was we got to do it with DBFF and her family !

    Here are the pictures from our meal :

    We arrived at the DTD location of BBB right on time for our 11:00 reservation . I gave them DD & DS name and they took us back right away . DD chose to get the Diva w/ the black hair piece which fit perfect because she was wearing her Snow White dress . DS was getting the cool dude .

    Get ready for lots of BBB pictures!!
