Very well written and informative. Thanks! One question, how were your CM interactions at the resort?
Mattresses are fine comfort wise. Size could be an issue depending on who will be using it, as you know it's a double and not queen. Here is a pic from March.I've seen some complaints about the pirate room mattress. I know they are double beds as opposed to the queen beds in the standard rooms, but were the mattress' updated during the room renovations or are they still like pillow toppers? Thanks!
We were just at the Boardwalk and went over to Margaritaville in Bossier City! We must live close to one another.Just a little story to let you know how much your sense of smell can trigger your memory (and make you spend money...lol)...
My daughter and I took WDW trips at least once a year from 2006 until 2011. We stayed at CBR twice (November 2007 and June 2008) and loved it! We are returning to WDW in October with several family members (renting a house offsite).
Okay, now to the point of my story. Yesterday, my daughter and I went to Margaritaville in Bossier City, LA for the day. The minute we walked in the door, I smelled an amazing aroma, and even though I haven't been there in 10 years, I knew immediately it was the same aroma that is in Centertown!
For the rest of the day, I couldn't get CBR off my mind, so last night I decided I'm going to upgrade my 5-day Park Hopper to an AP, and I'm planning a solo trip to CBR in February! Hoping all construction will be complete by then (except gondolas and Riviera...but that won't be an issue) and hoping for AP room discounts! I'm thinking IF that is offered, it will come out around Oct/Nov.
I am so excited!!
The CMs at the resort were great for us! We arrived via Magical Express and were immediately met by a friendly CM who assisted me in finalizing our check-in and getting to our room via the internal shuttle. All others we came into contact with were helpful and friendly as well- at the bus stop, in the island market, and in restaurants. When we ate at Spy Glass a CM came and gave us a box that was decorated with chocolate pirate coins and filled with pastries-they said to welcome us to the resort! I suspect they were just getting rid of extra pastries, but it was a nice gesture .Very well written and informative. Thanks! One question, how were your CM interactions at the resort?
The ages of our kids were great for this trip! We told our older kids we would wait until the youngest was 5 and I'm so glad we did because she was old/tall enough to do most of the rides and we didn't need a stroller or any naps. I hope you have a wonderful time just like we did!
I didn't take any pics of the pool when we were there this past week, but the construction has no impact on the pools. You can see the construction at Centertown from the main pool area, but it isn't a problem. My kids loved the waterslides and wish we were still there to swim!Are there any current pics of the pool area? Is it usable? We have never been to CB but are considering it, just really care about the pool.
