Awesome thanks for the info. I will be there with a little one and I'm glad to know the conference won't be a rowdy one. We won't be out late at nights so hopefully we won't run in to bus problems.

Does CSR offer any rooms with dual vanity sinks? We were spoiled with these at POFQ last year.

Safes big enough for iPads?

Has anyone tried to store iPads in the CSR room safes? Just checking to see if they will fit before I decide on whether or not to let the kids bring them for entertainment on the flight.

CSR rooms only have one sink, but they have a lot of counter space. Junior suites and above have two bathrooms, so they have two sinks.

Not sure if it's ok to ask this here as opposed to the dining board but I was hoping for some perspective of people who've specifically stayed at CSR

Can someone tell me about Cafe Rix and Pepper Market and how "portable" their breakfasts are? I've seen the menus online but am wondering if we could pick up the food and easily bring it back to our room or even eat it in the car on the way to a park. Thoughts on this? Is everything served on plates? Can you get "to go" boxes?

We're planning one particularly early morning and while I'm definitely willing to grocery shop or order groceries delivered it might be nice to have something bigger than what we can fix in our room without taking away from our park time in the early am.

There is def portable food available, not sure about from the Pepper Market, we only sat down ate there, but from the smaller Cafe (not Cafe Rix either, more the snack bar) there is Toast, Bagels, Muffins, Danish, Cereal, cookies, and a few warm things, all available for takeout ... all cost 1 Snack from the DDP. Its very quick to pick up and go from there as well, in the mornings we just grabbed something it took like 2 mins.

Hope this helps.

We will be doing our first mini WDW trip in May, staying at CSR after a few days at the beach. We will want to return our National Rental Car after we get checked in.

From CSR, which National drop off location is best: Dolphin, Car Care Center, or Shades of Green?

Thanks!

Yes it is definitely big enough! We fit in 2 iPads, 1 kindle, wallets, etc. You should have no problem.

We will be at CSR 4/14-4/20. This will be our second stay at CSR. Our first stay in Feb 2011 we were in 9B with a wonderful view of a pond at the back of the building (we had booked standard view). We didn't book Business Club so we aren't likely to be staying there agian. For this trip I am going to request a non-parking lot view and hope for the best (we booked standard view again). I am hoping it's just as quiet and peaceful as it was on our first visit.

When you stayed in 9B on your last trip do you remember if this building had any parking lot views? When I look at the map of the resort it doesn't look like this building has any parking lot views. I'm curious since I will be staying business class in November and there was no option for any type of views.

CSR was our first childless trip as well. You will love it. It doesn't have any direct views of a parking lot, but if you are in the last section of the building at the back of 9B closest to them you would be able to see them if you looked to your right and leaned over the bushes. You can see the front entrance and see the cars driving in and out from the back side of the building. It was past the pond and far enough away that noise wasn't an issue and I am a very light sleeper.

If you have a car then the parking lot is still very close with the bus stop not too far away. 9B is a wonderful location, enjoy!!
