CBR Nemo room pics

Saw these on Jim Hill's site while reading another article. I'm not usually a big Jim Hill fan but thought these pictures were interesting. I'm still not sure what I think about this. We're staying here in December so I guess we'll see. But I do really like those curtains.

Jim Hill : Still can't find Nemo? Then try looking inside of your room the next time you stay at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort

Those curtains are really neat looking. I'm almost tempted to change my DH and DS's trip from Pop to CBR.

I love the idea. DD LOVES Nemo! I think I might suggest to mom that we overnight two nights at CBR before my friend comes to meet us at the Poly! What a fab idea!

And I absolutely love the idea of moderate family suites. Especially with a POTC theme. Wow. Is this really for real? LOL! I can't wait to see the pictures that come out of people's upcoming visits!!!

Considering CBR was just room rehabbed a short time ago and is undergoing a major pool rehab and CSR is scheduled for room rehab in October, I find this unlikely.

However, I think the idea is cute.

Well, they've already added the Nemo "retreatment" to 32 rooms . . . with 64 more being rethemed each week until they are all done. Then they are making suites with a Pirates theme next year.

So, I'd say it's "likely" alright . . . and pretty real.


Here's a link to more pics:

Okay, maybe I'll be publicly flogged for this, but I don't like it.... I liked it the way it was. I mean, they're pixaring up everything... One thing I really like about the WDW resorts are the themes. I feel like they're kind of taking away from the CBR theme/feel by adding in these characters. I mean, the reason I love POFQ is b/c I feel like I'm in a setting almost indentical to if I were really able to go. And the reason I love the WL is for the same reason. And the AKL... I mean that one's self explanatory.

Just my two cents............
I mean, it's cute.... but I wish they weren't doing it.

My apologies. I must have over looked that part. I tend to take anything from Jim Hill with a grain of salt so my BS -o- meter was on full alert.

Normally, so do I. Thankfully, I found it on a couple of other sites with actual pics people took though, so it made me feel better (for once) about reading it on there.

I like the design, but I am not sure if I like the idea that they are doing a complete retheming. Maybe if they wanted to retheme JUST the family suites to a Nemo and/or Pirates theme, that wouldn't be so bad. But I know for lots of people (like Melissa ) the theming is the reason they stay someplace.

Maybe it will just take some getting used to.

Melissa you won't be getting flogged by me because I agree. I was thinking about splitting a stay in 2011 to celebrate my dd's 16th birthday between CBR and CR but these rooms look more like a value than a moderate and I don't care for it. I think they should leave the movie themes at the Values and keep the moderates looking the way they are. We may rethink CBR if they are all this way and save our money and just stay at a value. Plus it doesn't make any sense since Nemo was in Australia not the Caribbean.

I love the idea of the family suites! And think the rooms are cute. Though I have never stayed there... I can't really say which I like better. But I do agree with the unique themeing of each resort, and they shouldn't all be generic pixar/disney themed.

I agree with Kris. I stayed at CBR last August & loved it the way they were. One of the reasons I prefer Mod & Deluxe resorts is that they don't have cartoon-y themes. Leave that to the values. And changing the beds! One of the things I liked was the fact that we could store our luggage under the beds & get them out of the way.
The one good thing is that they are making family suites.

Okay! Glad to see I wasn't alone!!
Having the movie themes and such at the Values is great I think! That's kind of how I see those resorts, too. Glad other people feel this way!
