We just returned from a 6 night stay at CBR and loved every minute of it! We were in an Aruba corner room on the second floor of building 55. Can't say enough about how quiet and relaxing it was. That being said, I know, I know...it's so big. So what? Don't stay there if you think the size is going to somehow effect your enjoyment. Other thoughts, mostly random... I have seen on the boards people saying that Disney has "lost a step", that they are not as clean, the cast members weren't not as efficient, and so on. Honestly, I just didn't see it. This was our first trip in 7 years. We were very pleased with cast member responsiveness, park conditions, and basically everything we else we came in contact with. We were able to get the Free Dining promotion and it was great. This is my second time of using free dining, and I know there are those that feel it's not a good deal. You are entitled to your opinion, but I really felt like we got a great deal on this vacation. Every one of our table service meals were between 120.00 and 150.00 for a family of 3. I don't know about you, but for me, that's a lot of money. We ate at the following places for TS: Sci-Fi Dine-In Liberty Tree Tavern Whispering Canyon Cafe O'hana for breakfast O'hana for dinner Chef Mickey DW and I both had the steak at Sci-Fi and it was great! Liberty Tree Tavern was delicious but, I was a little overheated that day and did not have much of an appetite. Whispering Canyon is one of my favorite places to eat, and this trip was no exception! Great food, service, and fun! O'Hana for breakfast was good as it always was, but it is just pretty standard breakfast fare and it's hard to go wrong. But, O'hana for dinner? OUTSTANDING! I have always wanted to eat there, and was not the least bit disappointed. It was so good, and plentiful, and fun.....just a great experience. My DS was enjoying character interaction much more that I ever anticipated he would. So, we changed our Friday TS ressie to Chef Mickey. I have eaten dinner there one other time and was not impressed at all. This time we had the Brunch, and it was much better! My one take away from the dining plan is that really, it's too much food! LOL My only comment on quick service is that we had breakfast at Be Our Guest for breakfast. The restaurant is beatuful no doubt. But, had we not been on Free Dining, I would not have paid that amount of money for a QS meal. It was quite unexciting, and not worth the 75 bucks we would have paid out of pocket. Disney needs to rethink that price point in my opinion. Star Wars Galactic Spectacular is a great new show! Don't miss it. But, scheduled right on top of Fantasmic is an issue. We were watching Fantasmic when we were interrupted by the sounds of the GS fireworks. It was very distracting. I hope something can be worked out about this. We caught one of the final editions of the Main Street Electrical Parade. Sorry to see this classic go away. Wishes is fantastic, of course. Stake your spot early! Illuminations continues to be my favorite night time show. We caught it twice. First from the Future World side next to the Port of Entry store. A couple of days later from World Showcase. Speaking of the WS, we had a great time our last night at Disney. We went back to EPCOT, with our 12 remaining Snack Credits in tow, and pigged out at the Food and Wine Festival! What a cool use of Snacks. We walked around trying all kinds of stuff, then stayed for Illuminations. It was a great way to wrap up our trip. Fast Pass+ worked out well for us. I don't know why anyone wouldn't use it. We have FP's for all the big attractions with the exception of Frozen. We caught that at rope drop for Extra Magic Hours. It was rather comical as this sea of humanity headed directly to Norway. My DW was putting on her make up as we walked there. At 8:23 in the morning, the ling queue was full, but we only had about a 15 min wait. My thoughts are simple: very nice ride, way too short. I loved what they did with the Ice Palace, but there is so much more to story that they totally ignored. It could have been a bit longer had they included some of that. Seven Dwarfs Mine Train was great too! It is a kiddie coaster, so realize that going in, but a very fun ride with great animatronics. All in all, this was an amazing vacation, low crowds, nice resort, too much food, and lots of family fun! We are already planning a return trip to Fort Wilderness next year. We love it there. If you have questions about anything, just let me know. Good times!
