We just stayed in Ranchos 6B. The location didn't bother us as we had a car and just hit El Centro to fill mugs as we drove to the parks (drove and parked there.) The elevators were beat down though. I was surprised how shabby they looked and I love CSR. Room was nice, close to quiet pool and laundry. We were actually very close to Bus stop #3.

Pumped... heading to CSR 11/24-12/1. Had booked a standard with fingers crossed to get a room (upgrade) in the Casitas close to the main building. But just bit the bullet and paid an extra $200 for the preferred room. So $200 for 2 months of peace of mind and the guaranteed location - worth it!

Ha!! I have been thinking about dropping my preferred, but haven't called yet. Now I will be rethinking it again.

$200 is a good chunk of dough, but think about how you will doubt yourself if you do drop it, and consider the potential regret if you do not score an upgrade and find yourself on the other side of the lake.

I love security when it comes to Disney vacations. I'd hate to regret it if we were on the other side of the lake doing extra walking that could have been avoided.

True. And Casitas are my favorite. But we will have a car now, so I could just drive to El Centro if I didnt want to walk there from Ranchos.

We are heading to CSR on Monday I just wondered if the telephone number listed on page 1 of this thread is the number to call to speak to someone about our rooms? We are travelling with family and would like to have rooms in the same building if possible

There is a quiet pool in each section of the resort. The quiet pool in the casitas is a lap pool. Casitas and cabanas are both reasonably close to El Centro.

If there are no preferred kings, they would likely downgrade you to a standard or waterview king and refund any difference in price.



As long as you are OK with stairs, fourth floor casitas 2 is ok. But if you have strollers or wheelchairs, it would be aggravating. Enjoy your stay!
Yea she was ok with it because i carried all the heavy bags !!! uhg my back still hurts !!! The resort was nice and we had an amazing time ! We will be back

I just looked up the SPIE convention and the websites states that the Boardwalk is where they're holding the conference. Is this because they've filled CSR or have they moved it? Can anyone confirm this?

I am still seeing them at CSR from February 9-14, 2013, and CSR is listed if you click the hotel link on the conference site. Is this the site you are viewing?
