If we order a grocery drop off from Amazon will it go to the main building for us to pick up? Is this done the same way since Covid? Thanks!

Well, this is really embarrassing. I am pretty sure I have asked this question before, but I can't find my own Q&A. :oops:

With online check-in, we can skip the front lobby, but we're taking Magical Express. The lobby is the only stop, right? And in that case, will bell services help with our luggage? I'm concerned about carting a week's worth of luggage for four people all over CBR while also wrangling two kids. LOL.

TIA and apologies for not being able to find my own question if it was in this thread previously.

Yes only DME stop is the lobby at CBR. There is bell services right outside the front door if my memory serves correctly. You can drop your luggage and ask for it to be sent to your room, if you know your room number, then head out for the day. Or they can hold it until your return and bring it up once you're back.

Unless they moved bell services, you are correct, right outside the front door - on the left. We used it last year as our room wasn't ready but we wanted to go to HS.

Hi - we're staying at CBR for the first time in March. If I understand correctly there are 2 skyliner stations at CBR. Which goes to Epcot and DHS? And, is there any kind of grab and go snacks and drinks available at CBR or only the quick service restaurant? Thanks!

    Is this true? I have not heard anything about Disney charging for incoming shipped items.

    It is definitely true. I received three Amazon small packages and was charged $6 apiece. There was a note attached to each item, saying that I would be charged a $6 fee per item.

    Staying here in April for the first time. The resort looks huge! Are there signs to get you where you need to go or will we need to use a map on our phones? We're staying in Trinidad. Will empty buses come to that bus stop to take us to the parks or should we walk to the main bus stop?

    Thank you for the information. I really had no idea they started charging for this. While I realize it is not a lot of money in the scheme of things, it still bugs me.

    I believe the charge is only for non-grocery items though. Groceries are still free.

    how far is the walk from barbados or martinique to the skyliner depot
    Not sure about Barbados, but from Martinique, it took at least 10 minutes to get to the main Skyliner station. It may have taken longer, I wasn't really timing it. I am not a slow walker, but I was not jogging either. It is not a direct shot either and you have to navigate through the little island and then around the paths and buildings on the other side. If you are wanting to go to Epcot, it is probably easier and a bit quicker to walk to the Riviera station from Martinique and board there.

    We are in Aruba and it’s much closer to walk to Riveria hub - 5 mins or less. The main Caribbean Beach Skyliner is about 10 minutes.

    I would highly recommend against early buses from Aruba. It’s the last bus stop and many (every) bus seems to be full. We waited awhile before bailing and driving into Magic Kingdom to get to rope drop. Some people at the bus waited over an hour the day before and called the resort, basically demanding they send an empty bus to the Aruba stop. Maybe walk to one of the first bus stops if you’re dependent on the buses.

    What would be the first bus stop? Martinique?
