Caribbean Beach vs PoP Century (transportation)

I am reading more and more about lines to get on buses, get on the skyliner. Less wait is pretty important to me. I am considering changing from PoP Century to CB for a couple of reasons. One, the skyliner is a central location there and two, the rooms are a bit bigger than PC. I would love opinions about wait times for buses/skyliner at both locations. Is it considerably less at CB? Noticeably different? I also want to mention I will need to use a Scooter because I have a bad back.

Would you say changing for space and transportation wait times is worth it? If wait time for bus and skyliner are pretty similar, I may stick with PC.

This one is hard to say. When we booked our 8 night trip, CBR was about $100 more a night than Pop, give or take. For $100 a day, you're talking about saving going from Pop to CBR. Do I think that's worth it? No. With Pop, if you are just having one bed and not two, I think you'd be able to get around okay in the room unless you are using the scooter to go to the bathroom and what have you. But, if the scooter is just for getting around the resort/properties and you can get around in the room fine without it, maybe stay at Pop.

Another thing I'd think about is the lines. Undoubtedly you would be in lines longer going from Pop > CBR > Parks, therefore draining more battery before you even get inside the parks. If you have the cash to blow and aren't pinching, maybe going to CBR is worth it to you.

Toss up..

We changed our room from Pop to CBR and we are here now. For the skyliners we love CBR. It’s literally right outside our door bc of the building we are in. The bus situation here though we feel is a mess. We got in line at 0720 for a MK 0900 opening. We were 4th in line with 3 large families in front of us. Bus didn’t come until 8:10 and we didn’t make it on. Next bus came 5 min later and we were good. Got to park around 8:30ish. The line at the bus stop was really long and went through parking lot but unlike Pop they do not have set lines so everyone is just in one line. We are coming back in May and are actually going to go back to Pop due to the theming and bus situation.. Skykiner line moved really fast. We went to Epcot and got in line at 9:15. You wait until they open the skyliner around 10. We again were close to front of line and arrived at Epcot quick but then get in a line with all the resorts that are near the international gateway. Didn’t take long to get though but if you want to start at the front of the park then Pop is for you or driving.

Thanks for your feedback. For me, Disney Hollywood studios will be the big park we want to visit early to get on rise of the resistance. I have heard you have to be at DHS when it opens to get a group card otherwise you are out of luck. I do not want to wait outside for two hours to catch a bus. I know for some it’s worth it though.
Thanks again!
I think we will stay with our preferred POP resort stay

At CBR you do take the Skyliner so if Hollywood Studios is your biggest concern then CBR would work well. We were in Jamaica bldg room 4102 and the skyliner was literally across the street from our room. People lined up there this morning at 7:30 for Hollywood opening at 10 to be the first on.

I think it will be easier to Uber or Lyft over to DHS. Seem likes a lot of work to wait outside 2 1/2 hours for a ride to the park. Yikes!

Someone choosing to wait 2 1/2 hours doesn't mean it was necessary to wait 2 1/2 hours...
