Carribbean Beach Refurb


#1

I was just reading the weekly Mouseplanet WDW Update and there was a mention that the guestrooms at CBR are going to be refurbished with a “Finding Nemo” theme on the bedding, etc. I am all for guest room refurbishment but Nemo at CBR seems a bit silly. Anyone else think this is weird?

I think it kind of works.
Nemo and tropical go together…I think…


#3

Nemo isn’t to much of a stretch, but a Pirate theme would be perfect. Not necessarily an overly eloborate theme, but tasteful, casual and full of whimsy.

Interesting. I wonder if this will start a trend with other resorts.


#5

Um - let’s see - Caribbean Islands + Great Barrier Reef of Australia…I think that’s a bit of a stretch. The Pirates theme would be much more authentic - maybe not the Black Pearl - but Elizabeth’s bedroom looked pretty nice…


#6

I would be willing to give up a stay at a DVC for a Pirate theme room. That would be cool. :cool:


#7

A Finding Nemo theme at CBR seems like a bit of a stretch. Seems like they could have themed it after other things besides Nemo.


#8

Nemo - NO!

Pirates - YES!

Exactly! Nemo, while adorable, doesn’t work.

I’m with y’all PIRATES would ROCK!! This is our favorite resort (so far) and that would just make it that much better!


#11

love the idea of pirates- but not the thought of sleeping with Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom all over the sheets:laugh::redface::laugh:


#12

I can’t say I find either of them working. I don’t think the pirates themeing at Old Port Royal works that well and Nemo is just too cute for CBR. Now a refurbishing of one of the value resorts to a Nemo theme would be really cool!!

Based on the pictures that I saw, looks like we may not be staying at the CBR in the future. We do not have kids and this looks a little too “kiddified”

Thanks for the link. That looks awesome!


#16

I don’t have kids either but, I must admit, I am somewhat impressed. I think it looks like fun. Regardless, I don’t think you need to steer clear of CBR completely. It looks like they are only converting a few hundred rooms in the Trinidad section, just ask to stay elsewhere.


#17

Thanks for the link. Did anybody else notice they mention the quick service dining plan option?


#18

I did–so I posted this link also in the 2009 dining thread that’s open too


#19

Oh good! I am sure there are lots of folks who would be interested in seeing it. :slight_smile:

Nemo would limit the appeal to young children. The pirates idea would have a broader audience. As a parent of teens, I think a Nemo theme might actually keep us form choosing CBR. But maybe that is the goal – to set up the resort as being specially designed for families with younger kids!
