Good morning! I have a lot to share about CBR, so I will try to capture it in one message, but if something is missing - just let me know.
All standard rooms are in the Aruba or Jamaica sections. You will take buses to get to MK or AK. In the mornings - until 10 or 11am - they send two buses to CBR, so one will come to just Jamaica (first) and then Aruba (second). You don’t need to walk to the first bus stops. We had no issues getting there for rope drop, and we are middle of the pack people.
On the way back, Jamaica and Aruba are the last two - of six - total bus stops. If you want to get back sooner, you could take a Riviera bus and then walk to your room. This could be a hike - and may or may not save time - depending on your room location.
We had building 51, and I loved it. We had two full resort days, so this location was close to Old Port Royale (OPR), the Skyliner and bus stops.
There are also quiet pools - we never saw more than 10 people enjoying the quiet pool at a time.
The Aruba section is closest to the Skyliner. I would recommend requesting buildings 43-51. The resort is really really spread out, so you will do a lot of walking. It didn’t bother me - but it might be important to you.
The coffee in the room is terrible. Plan on going to the coffee stand at the Skyliner or grab coffee at OPR.
We enjoyed the food from OPR! They have a quick service option, and we ate a lot of the chicken bowl during our week there, but also liked the classic pizza and chicken fingers. There is a pool bar - and my mom said she had the best strawberry daiquiri of her life there . Sebastian’s is the table service restaurant and many call it a hidden gem. We did not eat there but have heard good things. People also sometimes go to the Riviera for the quick service (Primo Piatto) or the table service (Topolinos)
You can see EPCOT fireworks from the Aruba beach section.
The Skyliner has three different lines. One line takes you to AoA/Pop. One takes you to HS. One takes you to the International Gateway at EPCOT. There is a quick stop at the Riviera. The SL opens up a lot of food options - you can go to AoA/Pop/Riviera/BW/BC/YC very easily.
We were at the parks before rope drop on our HS day, and we found that the SL line moved very fast. When we left at park close, it was fine. The line looked long but moved very very quickly.
I think that’s all for now! If you have more specific questions, I’m happy to answer!
