Another great online check in experience!

Hey DISers! I just wanted to say haiooo and we had another wonderful experience with online check in. We arrive late night on Thursday and stayed one night at ASp, and checked into CSR yesterday morning at 9:30 am. Our room was ready, and our request of Casitas was fulfilled. Love CSR, and love online check in!

F+W was not crowded during the day, but after 5 pm it started getting cray. I tried the lamb chops from Australia, the cheese plate, and the Cheddar Cheese soup for now.

Enjoy the resort....If it weren't for DVC ( which we bought ) We'd be there again & again... Our fav. Deluxe lite...We stayed in Casitas 3 which was ideal...What bldg. are you in? & be sure to take advantage of the back bus stops...

Also get used to the buses being never full. This is also a great reason why this resort is awesome. Pepper Market, to the lounge to the Great main Pool....Now you got me wanting to ditch my AKL ressies... Have a great trip.

We check into CSR on Monday for the 1st time ever! So excited!! Did you request casitas online or upon arrival? Also, have you noticed how the wifi is throughout the resort?

Thanks!

We were in 3 last time, it was perfect! This time we are in 5, which is still great and we have an amazing view of the lake. We have a rental car so we don't use the buses but they seem great!

Hi! Yes we did request Casitas online when we did online check in. I've only used the wifi here in the room and it's totally fine. No lagging for me. Crowds are great. I was really kind of expecting something nutty after all the recent posts on here, but DH and I were literally laughing today at MK. I mean, yeah there's tons of people but it's NOWHERE near summer time crowds at all! Today at 10:45 am Dumbo was listed as a 15 min standby and it was really like 5 mins. Have a great trip!

Np! I will say that we do online check in the day it becomes available. I've found I get my requests each and every time because they allocate the rooms 10 days out. I would still do it for Monday, make your casitas request, and if they didn't meet it when you check in, ask if they can meet it now. Say you are willing to wait, that's what we were planning on doing if they hadn't met the request. That's why we went early like 9:30 am so if we didn't like the room we could wait until afternoon when more rooms free up possibly. Good luck!
