Can I hook a VCR up at CBR?

There are only 3 T.V. shows that are "must sees" for DH and I, and they are all starting to wind up the season during the week we are there. Would there be a problem with our hooking up a VCR to the T.V. in our room at CBR?

jeanadave,
Friends of ours did this last year and had no problem. At CBR the tvs have the red, yellow, and white colored plug holes (totally wrong terminology so hopefully that makes sense) right in the front of the Tv which is nice (accesible by flipping down a little panel).

? For Safety Mom

We are going back this June to CBR for our fourth stay Cant wait!! My question is have they come out with a new mug since last June? In 2004 we got the fatter mugs, and last year we got the travel size. I love collecting the mugs, keeps me in the Disney mood back at home! If they did not change them I guess will get the fat mugs.

I seem to remember that you need to book a King room if that's what you want - then you can request which buildings/areas you'd like and they try to grant your request. If you book preferred location, you may not get a king room. We booked the King, and then requested two locations and got our first choice.

We will be there in 17 days.....

The preferred category was sold out, so I am going to fax the hotel a few days prior to our arrival and request a room close to the front.

Close to the front of the resort? If you want to be close to the food court and main pool you should ask for Jamaica or Aruba. The front desk is in a separate building with nothing but the front desk and cruise line check in and lobby concierge.

Ok, I need some help please. We have down graded from AKL to Pop due to some medical bills and I'm very sad about that but.... I'm thinking there isn't that much of a difference between value to mod so I'm scoping some out. I'm intrigued by CBR. I've stayed at CSR and I loved it. But heres my dillema. At pop we will have preferred rooms but if I go up to mod I wouldn't want to splurge on that. And my concern is that we will have a very long walk at the end of a tiring day. Is this resort worth that? Or is there locations that we could request that wouldn't be charged for preferred? Then of cource hope that we get those request.

How's the transportation? If you are far from the food court should you get on a bus and get off at a closer stop? Is there a table service restaurant on site?

Thanks in advance.

I think CBR is worth it IMHO. I really enjoy the theming and the feel the resort gives me. Plus each village has its own stop so you are never far from your room assuming you get off at your stop.

My favorite island is Jamaica and I usually request Jamiaca buildings 44, 45, or 46. They are close to the bridge that leads to the main pool and food court. Also they are close to the Jamaica quiet pool, playground, and bus stop. Aruba is also a good spot to be for non preferred.

I think the tranportation is good. CBR does not share with any other resorts and it maybe takes 5-7 minutes to zip around the resort to pick up all the stops (of course this depends where you are located)

CBR does have an internal bus that goes around the resort. Also you can always ask a bus that pulls up if they have stopped by Old Port Royale (food court, shops, aracade, main pool, Shutters, bar) yet and hop on and jump off once you get to Old Port Royale.

There is a bus stop at every village so you are never far from a bus stop. If you want to be close to the food court and main pool I suggest you request Jamaica or Aruba. It is a short walk across the bridge to the food court.

Great pics Scoutsmom!! I also took your advice and requested a room in Jamaica. I think this is really going to work out.
