    Have all the rooms at CBR been renovated? Are the renovated rooms all preferred rooms? Have standard booked - should I request something else? DD 5th b-day would LOVE a NEMO room for May 2-11 - when will park hours be available,desperate to make ADRs

    Hi Christine,

    I was lucky enough to get a recent, quick look at the remodeling that has been happening at the Caribbean Beach Resort. I am not sure if all the rooms have been completey remodeled as they were still working on that when I was there in December. I can tell you that all of the rooms at this resort are being changed to the Nemo theme except for the small amount that are being transitioned to the pirate theme option. There is a preferred upgrade charge for the pirate rooms but the Nemo rooms are considered the standard level rooms. My understanding is the only exception to this standard level would of course be based on the view or location of your room.

    My suggestion would be to call the reservation line and ask that a room request be entered for a remodeled Nemo room. I would think this would not be a problem. On a side note, be sure to pencil in some pool time while staying there. The pool was just recently finished and has a great pirate ship play area that you daughter would probably love.

    I am sorry to say that at this time I can't be to big of a help regarding the park hours. We do not have any information on when they will be released, but I would think it should be very soon. You still have a couple of weeks before the ninety day window opens up for your dining reservation so I am sending lots of pixie dust your way that the hours will be up before your dialing begins.  

    P.S. Don't forget to get a birthday button from the resort front desk or park's guest relations for the birthday girl and be sure to register her for her birthday gift here.

    Hope you have a magical trip!
