CBR Sleeps 5?

intercot.com - Sun, 2017-03-19 00:37
We just made reservations for early 2018 for our family of 5.... and the boys are all good sized teenagers. Caribbean Beach now says it sleeps 5, with a pull down bed. I'm a little reluctant BUT I'm also not terribly thrilled about paying for a family suite either.

Has anyone stayed in one of these rooms that sleeps five? Is it five, or is it more like 4 and a half?

Paddlefish - Upcharge in addition to 2 credits?

intercot.com - Sat, 2017-03-18 14:11
Looking for insight on the Paddlefish restaurant and how it works with the dining plan. I realize that it is signature, and requires 2 credits. Looking at the menu on the restaurant website, it appears some items may have an additional upcharge besides the 2 credits. Can anyone confirm that? Called Disney Dining and they did not have a clue on this one.

July 2017 Hours

intercot.com - Fri, 2017-03-17 14:05
I am in the process of trying to make ADR's and preliminary park plans for our upcoming July 13 - 21, 2017 trip. On WDW website the hours for the MK are 9AM - 9PM. We almost always go in July or August, one of the reasons being the MK has been open until 12AM or later.

So I am curious if anyone else has seen other hours posted somewhere, or do you think these hours will remain the same as posted?

Question about scooter viewing

intercot.com - Thu, 2017-03-16 17:28
I am handicapped and use a scooter. In the past I have gone with my gf and son. When we have gone to see fantasmic, some shows, and some rides, they have special access for handicapped. We all get to sit together and no issues. I'm going in May w/ my sister and her family and mine, there will be 6 of us. When we go to fantasmic will they be able to sit w/ me? all six? or is there a limit? On the rides that are wheel chair accessible, can we go together?
I'm not trying to cheat anyone, just wondering since we are about to make fast passes.

thanks
