    Smile Bus questions for CBR

    We will be staying at CBR for the first time, mid September 08 trip.We are hoping to stay in either the Jamaica or Aruba buildings.
    I have a few questions regarding the buses at CBR:
    1) Internal bus system: if we get our building request, will we need it?
    2) Where are the bus stops for the theme parks? I understand that you have to cross a parking lot to get to them, are they easy to find? Good signage?
    3) Is there any particular order (building wise) that the theme park buses pick up? Or drop off?
    Thanks in advance!

    If its an Internal Bus they go round and round and don't leave the resort.
    If you leave the resort and come back in, they start at two differents locations depending on the bus that you are on. It will be either Barbados or Jamaica. We stayed at Martinque and loved it.
    This is a link to the map itself.

    If you get a room in Aruba or Jamaica then you won't need the internal shuttle as long as you don't have mobility issues.

    Each village has its own bus stop. Each is easy to find, as each is along the access rode that rings the resort. Each parking lot is pretty narrow, so it's not like you're walking across a huge expanse of parking lot.

    Each theme park and DTD has it's own bus. In other words, if you want to go to Magic Kingdom you will board a MK bus ... no such thing as one single bus that goes to all the parks in a row. Each bus stops at each bus stop.

    Buses for Magic Kingdom and Downtown Disney start at Martinique and go clockwise (Old Port Royale, Trinidad North, Trinidad South, Jamaica, Aruba and finally Barbados).

    Buses for Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom start at Jamaica and go clockwise (Aruba, Barbados, Martinique, OPR, Trinidad North and finally Trinidad South).

    Drop-offs are in the identical arrangement.

    Cool

    Hey CleveRocks!
    Thank you for that information, that was exactly what I was looking for!
    Another question if I may:
    What is the normal (approximate) travel times to the theme parks from CBR?

    once you get on the bus, the magic kingdom is the farthest from CBR probably about 10-15min. I stayed @ CBR in Feb & we loved the buses. Epcot & The Studios are like 5 minutes from CBR
