I stayed at CBR for the first time in November in a standard room. We stayed in Jamaica room 4442. It was a great location overlooking a small courtyard. Jamaica is closest to Skyliner (unless you stay in another section and walk to Riviera’s skyliner). Bldg 44 was close to the bridge to walk over to the main pool area, but also very near the skyliner.
I did not use Skyliner to RD HS. We breakfast-ed at Trattoria Al Forno and walked over. The days we did see people lined up to go to either EP or HS for opening, the lines were very long and I just didn’t feel like I could trust getting there early enough for me.
We only took the bus to AK and DS. The wait wasn’t too bad either time, but I did wish we could have gotten to AK faster. I will say the line of cars to AK was long and the bus went another way instead of waiting in the long line. We took a Lyft to AK during our 2019 trip (from POR) and we ended up getting stuck in that line and watching all the busses zoom past us. THAT was not a pleasant feeling!
We ubered to Contemporary for breakfast and then walked to MK for RD. Apparently I love to make early breakfast reservations. I don’t think rideshare works well at MK because you get dropped somewhere else (TTC maybe?). Getting dropped at the Contemporary (and now I guess Grand Floridian since the walkway is open) gives you direct access and you can visit another hotel.
