Check -in at Carribean Beach Resort
After leaving IoA and our wonderful
hotel paradise at Royal Pacific, we stayed at Carribean Beach a few
days before heading to Boardwalk for Friday & Saturday night of the
RADP weekend. This page will have many images taken of the resort
during our stay.
Along the beach near our room, we
could not only see the fireworks from the EPCOT "Reflections of Earth"
but hear the music as it carried itself across the water..
fireworks reflected on the waters...
fireworks from RoE =)

they weren't kidding when they said this was a resort for
walkers! (only problem Meeko kept getting lost
a hammock to rest and view your map..
FINALLY back at the room!

Sarasota couple days before, 5x7 of Alexander & Kiki back
home in Berkeley
Our time for the first couple days was
spent resting up a little and visiting with friends in Orlando. When
not sleeping on the 2nd, we were eating at the crummy Shutters
restaurant, as well had dinner at BOMA (was supposed to be Jiko.. more
on that later) and watched Survivor with friends. The first night and
today though was all about Kim Possible (and finding our way back to
our room from the long trek on the beach).
from the live journal of Meeko:
"...we got to meet up
with Bruce &
Marta for dinner. I guess there was a fire in the Jiko kitchen or
something so our PS was cancelled and with Bruce working & Marta
out and about for stuff they weren't reached to know.. so when we got
there to check in for the 7pm PS we were in for a surprise!
I want to note that despite the junk
that went on with the messed up seating and all, our dinner at BOMA was
wonderful as usual, and our server was super great. No complaints
& I thought we'd be eating at 7pm.. as did Marta.. anyway.. Sean
& I didn't eat anything til around noon.. at the CBR (Carribean
Beach Resort) foodcourt. We shared a buffalo wing sandwich and chicken
ceasar.. They had a tomato and lettuce I could put on the sandwich to
give it something more.. The salad was fine but the Ranch dressing was
a little rancid tasting or something.. or maybe it was just the brand..
or that it WASN'T fat free. ANYWAY... we were starving by 7pm and Marta
was about to go into shock but we managed despite them making us wait
almost another hour before being seated at BOMA... BOMA is always good
but the wait and WDW customer service regarding being seated
immediately (WE DIDN'T MAKE JIKO CLOSE! they should have seated the
displaced PS's as soon as a table was available and BEFORE the walk-ins
if you ask me!)."
