There are no guarantees. So few have been done in relation to the whole resort. Check out post #1 in this thread for up to date info.

We are booked for a water view room. However I would really like something convienant with the kids....close to the main area/food and a bus stop.

Which areas would I request? Where do I fax it and how soon before my trip?

TIA!

Just returned from our stay dec. 22-30th.
We got casita 1 room 1450 (fourth floor room 50), it was a newly reno'd room. Lovely beds, really comfy. Lovely flat screen t.v to watch stacey on!! and the bathroom was great....same as old but new curved rod which makes it seem more spacious.
It was nice being close to the main building and food area but we were far from everything else. We have never stayed in a room that far from a quiet pool, laundry or main pool!
When we stayed at POR in march we were around the corner from a quiet pool, across a bridge from the main pool and just as close to the main bldg. Here was a hike to everything, and the bus stop 2 was past the laundry so a further hike.
The laundry room was a filthy place, I'm sure the laundromat in my town is cleaner than that!! Also at least 4 dryers never actually dried clothes.
the elevators in our area were filthy also, the floor was peeling, it was dirty and the sign on the back wall inside the elevator was peeled off and looked a mess the whole time. There was always garbage around the lawns and walkways that I have never seen at other resorts.
I was disappointed that the pools weren't open before 8am.
I just thought it was lacking in disney magic. It was fine but that was all.
Housekeeping was awful. We were missed one day totally and I had to ask for 3 days for kleenex as we never had any, nor did we have paper so I had to write the housekeepers notes on napkins!! 2 days mousekeeping never even took my tip envelopes.
The main pool was nice, we went there every afternoon and it was nice.
I wish the arcade was in the main building and not in the pool area.
I wouldn't stay here again, I would stay at POP before here again. POP was always immaculate.
My favorite is CBR so far with POR a close second.
anyhow just my 2 cents.
It was over 80 everyday except our first day and that was still warm so that made up for any issues I had really.

I enjoyed my breakfast at the MG. Very good for the price compared to other breakfast buffets at WDW.

I just read that someone had a wonderful stay in Cabana 9B. Is 9B available as a regular room presently or is it club level.

Thanks

The opening of the club level rooms in cabana 9b may be on hold. Some people are reporting that they have been offered free upgrades to other concierge resorts for their club level reservations at CSR.

Turns out the soft opening of CSR concierge rooms didn't go as planned and they will be revamping a bit. For the foreseeable future, CSR will only use the rooms as Business Club Level for convention groups that book those rooms. Otherwise they will be used for leisure guests but the lounge will not be open to them.

So I don't know if foreseeable future means forever or until they straighten out the kinks since the concierge rooms didn't go as planned and they are going back to the drawing board.

package fee?

We will be staying at CSR on 9/19 and planned to get water, diapers(we have twins) etc.. from garden grocer but recently heard that they charge
$5.oo per item delivered??? Has anyone encountered this? and if so, what is the best way to bring/get things to our room? I don't mind paying a fee but $5 for every package may get hefty with the larger items I plan on getting this is also the same reason why I don't want to bring it in my suitcase(now that there charging so much for checked bags)!
Thanks in advance
I also wanted to say Thank you to Buzz and katmark for all the informative info you supply to this board your the reason we are staying at CSR! Thank you for all the time you devot to it

My pleasure. I can't answer about the delivery as we always have a car and stop for items for the room. However, did find this on the dining section and Pepper Market, etc., are on the Dining Plan! HOORAY!!!!

My understanding of the charge is that CSR charges for items delivered by Fedex and UPS, not items that are delivered to the resort in person like Garden Grocer or A Baby's Best Friend.

A few girlfriends and I are planning on a trip for this coming October, and I think we're leaning towards staying at CSR.
I'm pretty excited about the spa...a nice massage would be heavenly after a few days in the parks.

I always get a massage just a little past the midway point of our trip at the CSR and I feel great for the remainder of the trip. Have them concentrate on your legs and lower back--it's amazing how refreshed you will feel.
