Review of Disneymoon -- 9/2-9/8

Hey everyone! Just wanted to give a quick review of our recent trip. We celebrated our Disneymoon last week at CSR. This was my second time to Disney, first on property, and my DH's first ever visit. We drove down from Massachusetts and arrived on Sunday the 2nd and stayed until the 8th. We were on the dining plan along with having a park hopper and the water park and more option.

We arrived about 9am on Sunday, and waited in line at registration for only about 20 minutes. Most people ahead of us were checking out. When we got to line we met a lovely woman, whose name slips my mind but I know I have it down somewhere. She made some quick small talk with us, finding out we were on our honeymoon and gave us two "happily ever after" pins. *I already had my Just Married pins, too While checking in, she made a quick phone call, and ended up upgrading us to a king room in cabanas 9a. We originally booked 2 queens simply because we knew we wouldn't be in the room much except to sleep, so we weren't worried about the larger bed, but this was certainly a pleasant surprise! Turned out the room was ready early and we were all set to drop out luggage off and head to the parks! We were in room 9160, a corner room on the first floor facing the courtyard. The location was great, right near the quiet pool, and between El Centro and the Dig site. THe parking lot was not far either, which worked great since we drove!

The cleanliness and condition of our room was great. Mousekeeping did a great job during the whole stay. Bed always made, new towels, trashes changed. Never got any towel animals or anything, which to tell you the truth I was a little disappointed Not truly, but I think they are cute to see in the windows when you walk by. Obviously being two adults I was expected them.

I cannot comment on the buses because we took our car everywhere we went. The parking lots were great LOL! The Dig Site pool was wonderful, great staff at the Siestas pool bar. Excellent margaritas! We visited Pepper Market and Rix Lounge during our stay. PM was excellent since we were on the dining plan. DH and I both loved the selection and found the process very easy for the buffet. Rix Lounge was a great spot for a later night drink. Order a mudslide if you stop by! I got the bruschetta while there as well, also very delicious.

Overall I can say that this was a great first experience for our first on-site visit. DH and I both loved the resort, every cast member we had interactions with were very pleasant and helpful. I would say the only complaint I had was how early the pool bar closed. It would have been nice to enjoy a cocktail when we hit the pool later at night after getting back from the parks. Other than that, I am sure the next vacation hubby and I take to Disney will be another stay at CSR!

Also, I must say it paid off wearing our Just Married pins around the parks and the resort. I went in completely NOT expecting any pixie dust, but was so surprised at what we got. Not only did we get the free upgrade to the king room, a free champagne toast, but much more. At Pizzafari we got two cute little cupcakes, at Via Napoli they servers came over and sang a cute song in Italian to us and gave us an extra little dessert. We were waiting around the fast pass distribution to grab another fast pass for the safari before we rode the rapids, and the CM came over and gave us two to use at any time so we didn't have to wait and could get another fast pass for something else! We received two chocolate covered marshmallows in Epcot when we stopped to get a snack at the Karamel Keish (sp.?) shop. Many congratulations everywhere we went, including some during a couple parades and got rounds of applause! At Boma, after our breakfast, we got a treat sampler from out server. Those little things definitely made our day and trip that much more special!!!!

Sure did! I saw a bunch of couples with the bride and groom mickey ears too! We always yelled out congrats to them if they passed. I don't think I was getting my husband to wear them, so hats off to you ladies that could!!!
