The test has become permanent. There is a dedicated bus that runs from 7am to 11pm daily, making a stop at the Custom House.


I checked with Chip and Dale Express.

Safetymom, I was just there and it is running. Stopped several times for us. I'm not sure why you want her to wait for Tyler, although I know he will confirm it for her.

Thank you, everyone, for helping answer this question!

I know I said only one more question... but, are the fridges in all the rooms now, or do you have to ask at check in?

I can't wait to get out of this cold and snow!

There was a refrigerator in my room while I was there. THe lady at the front desk told me all rooms had them. It was a nice addition to the room.

Thanks again! DS will be happy that I won't be sending him off on "ice" runs! He skates on it well, but hates filling buckets with it!

So say you're staying in Jamaica. You need tot ake the internal bus to the custom house to get on a bus to the parks?

No need to take an internal bus if you are staying in Jamaica. It is a short walk across the bridge to Old Port Royale and main pool.

If you don't feel like walking then you could take the bus.

for MagEpcDisAniVoyager - no, you don't need to take a bus to the Custom House to get a bus to the parks. There's a bus stop for Jamaica, as there is at every village, where the park buses pick up people. Each bus has its destination displayed on the front and right side. Just wait for the bus to the park you want to go to. The internal bus is useful if you need to get to some other part of the resort, like the Custom House, and you don't want to walk there.

Do you know if they offer discount to CBR in December. We have the AAA discount of a perferred room but always on the look out for other discounts. Thanks :D

No need to bump this thread up. It is always at the top of the resort boards.

Maybe a silly question, but do they have elevators to the second floor?

If you take a towncar there how does your luggage get to the room since it may be farther away...I am assuming bell boy takes a van of some sort?

How small is the crib? We may have 5 people one room or 6 people 2 rooms(which is what I hope for). But if so my 2 year old will go in a crib since they allow 5..he is in a bed now (but he is small) I am hoping that they would allow us to get a rollaway in there instead.

I am booking this week 2 rooms with perfered location. Thanks for all you help...since the Dolphin price is not worth it for the week we go in June...this place looks great.

No elevators at CBR. They have vans and carts that will get the luggage to your room.

Fridges

When I first started reading comments about "free" fridges in rooms I was confused - when we stayed at CBR they had fridges in all rooms for free and it was a new thing. I think thar was around 1990 - by '95 the fridges were gone.

So, Disney had had fridges in moderate rooms for free before - in the early 90's. Not sure when they took them out, but guess at some point they decided to charge and once again realized it's a good perk and saves them a lot of hassle to just have one in every room. Room prices go up enough (and they charge enough anyway) to cover the now invisable fee.

I'm not putting Disney down - I love the place - but after over 30 yrs of stays, in nearly every resort,I wish they'd stick with a plan.

So far I do not like the new tkt option and felt sure, as soon as I read the details, it was not going to save money for the folks who like to travel for short periods 2 or 3 times (or more) a yr - seems it might be a good idea to reward these folks and not just get people to stay longer.

If I go 3 times a yr for 4 nights, or once for 10 ngts I am still going to spend...probably more during the shorter visit!

Just venting...here, because my next stay is at CBR

Thanks!
