Caribbean Beach Resort
Going Jan 7 thri Jan 11. I have a standard room reservation. Will I be able to request a certain building?? Which one is best?? The rooms are already paid for in full, does this make a difference when I get there and the room is already assigned??
I don't know if you will be able to request a certain building but if at all possible don't stay in I think the Trinadad building or whatever the last building is. Its way to far to walk to the main lobby and the last bus stop so most of the busses are full by the time they get down there. Sorry I can't help with anything else, I was younger so i don't remember that much about it.

We stayed there in Sept of '06. The resort was fun and had a great atmosphere. We stayed in Barbados, which was okay, but if we went again I would prefer something else. I wouldn't say it was a "bad" location, there were just others that seemed more appealing. The resort is very big and very pretty. If you have time I suggest just taking a walk around, there a little trails that lead you down tropical paths and are just beautiful. Have fun!!
When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionable.
Call the Disney reservation line to have the requested noted on your reservation. Then two or three days before your trip begins, call the resort itself and have the request noted again. There are no guarantees, but those are your best chances to get what you want.

I have stayed there many times and have only payed for the "preferred location" on our last trip. You can call them and request a certain section, but of course they can not guarantee anything. When you are checking in make sure you are extra nice and ask them again for the particular location. You will probably still have a standard room, just in a preferred location. We always request "Martinique". There are two bus routes, one starts in Jamaica and one at Martinique. So chances are you will be the first on or off the bus. If they start at Jamaica you are in the middle of the route. Also Maritnique is right next to "Old Port Royale" which is where the food court, store, main pool, bar etc. is located. If you have your purchases from the parks sent back to the hotel, you need to pick them up from the store and it is a much shorter walk carrying those packages than from some of the other sections. Trinidad North is located on the other side of Old Port Royale so you could request that section to. I have stayed in Trinidad South and I think it is the furthest from the center. I think Jamaica is kinda of far also. Tthe bus stop is very far from the buildings also. I have never stayed in any of the others areas, but I like Martinique the best. Hope this helps! Enjoy your trip!!
Thanks!!! Thats what I was looking for..Martinique it is!!!
