Pirates of the Caribbean themed rooms at CBR

I looked for a thread about this and didn't find one. So forgive me if this is a repeat.

I saw this on the Orlando Sentinel web site. It looks like they are turning the rooms in Trinidad South into Pirate themed rooms. I guess that's one way to get people to want to stay in Trinidad South.

Cool idea, but wish they would have thought of it sooner.

From what I read in another thread, CBR will have most of their guest rooms turned into Nemo themed rooms (a Nemo border and bedspread, with blue curtains that sort of look like "water"). They'll also have flat-screen tvs and new dressers. There were pictures posted somewhere around here in a thread. My understanding is they've already begun some of the rooms, and they will do something like 60 rooms a week until they're all done. I can't verify this as I haven't stood in the rooms personally, lol, but it's what I read and I think it was validated by someone else...

The POTC theme (according to the article I read) will be for moderate family suites. But again, I have nothing to back this up. Anyone else want to jump in here with actual info? LOL!

That is what the rumors floating around the internet have said - POTC rooms at CBR are to be Family Suites - not plain rooms.

That would be wonderful to have family suites available at a Moderate resort!!

Although I think people would stay in a pirate themed room at any resort level, definitely a good idea.

Yep . . . as of a report last week, 32 rooms had already gotten the "retreatment" then they were supposed to be doing 64 rooms per week until they are all done.

Once all the Nemo rooms were done, then they were supposed to start working on the POTC rooms, which are supposed to be familly suites.

Pics of Nemo rooms:
