    This is my first post on DIS. After a bunch of searching, I think we finally have the trip we want ready to book.

    We are planning on arriving 03/21 , leaving 03/28. Staying at CBR. We also chose the table service dining plan (don't know the abbrev yet).

    Any offers that we should know about for that time would be great!

    I have been twice when I was a kid/teenager in the 70's and early 80's. Then we took our 8 yr old DS and 5 yr old DD 2 years ago. We stayed at the DoubleTree across from Downtown Disney last time. It was great because we had a suite which was very convenient. But it seemed like we lacked the feeling of really being there in the middle of everything. So this time we decided to be "on the property". Hope we made the right choice. Anything we should know about the CBR? Can we choose rooms, areas (Jamaica, Martinique etc.)? And do you have any recommendations for the best area to be in?

    Also, where do you all get those countdown graphics in your signatures?

    D.:thumbsup2

    There is a whole thread on the CBR in the Resorts section of the Trip Planning forums. It has answered a lot of questions for me.

    We just wanted to budget for most of our main food needs and pay for it now. We went 2 years ago and armed with that experience we know that the plan will work for us. What we didn't do last time was prebook any table service restaurants, and it was so busy that we didn't get to any of them. Not this time. We took the time and preplanned our days (as much as we could) and booked our character dinners and breakfasts for each day.

    Hi! Congratulations! It sounds like you have the hang of it and you will love staying on Disney property.

    I don't know if you are driving or flying but I would recommend a rental car. We enjoy the ease of having our own transportation and the ability to go anywhere whenever we want. Also, parking is free for Disney resort guests.

    Oh, and about the tickers. On each persons there is a link to them or a web address. Just go there, create yours, get the link and add it to your signature on your user page. Enjoy and have fun! :cheer2:
