Yes you will be able to apply a discount if it comes out to your package

Just back from our first stay at CSR. Couple questions:
1. Do all rooms have the motion sensor so that the air conditioning only works when people are moving around in the room? Every time we came back to our room, it was hot and the air only kicked in when we were there. We've never had this issue at other Disney resorts.

2. Do they only provide new shampoo/conditioner every other day instead of everyday? That was our experience despite tipping everyday.

We enjoyed our stay, but we did have a few issues. Our room wasn't ready until well after 4pm even though we did online check-in to say that we'd arrive by 12:30pm. I know there's no guarantee of an early check-in, but I never thought we'd have to wait past the standard check-in time. We requested a room on a higher floor, but got ground floor. The first room we received smelled like cigarette smoke, so we had to request another room. There was a huge event set up on the beach in front of our building with lots of seating set up, buffet tables and music which was loud and made walking difficult along the pathway. Still, the resort is beautiful and we enjoyed the pools, nightly bonfire & movies. We'd like to stay there again in the future.

My advice, don't second guess yourself. Everyone has a different opinion to where they like best. If the Cabana and it's beach them appealed to you I say stay with it. I am booked for business class and one of the big reasons for me is because I know that it will be located in 9B in the Cabana's.

I think I heard there is a way to override this. This is what might work. I haven't been there yet, so I don't know if this does the trick:

On the thermostat, push the power button and the down arrow (button that adjusts the temp) at the exact same time. If you do this correctly, you will see the letters "bp" where the temp normally shows. You are now bypassing the sensors in the room. You can then set the temp to whatever you want and it keeps the room that cold whether you are in it or not. You might have to do this once a day as the thermostat tends to go back to sensor mode after 24 hours.

I don't think CSR is the only Disney resort that has this.

Checking in Live from CSR!!! I checked in at 12:45pm and the room was ready (King Business Class). The lounge was closed so I didn't have a chance to check it out till about 7pm and when I did, the key did not work. I walked back to the front desk and the CM never checked the box for club access so after new room keys were printed, it was good!

Our room is a bottom floor room facing the lake in 9B. We are very close to the bus stop and main building. It's raining now so I didn't have a chance to check out the pool but I've seen it many times before and love it!

Room looked clean..even the top of the closet which is good! I'm going to ask for more shampoo/cond/ shower gel tomorrow and see if we get it.

The lounge is fantastic and there was no one in there when I went back at 9:30pm. I had two Sangria's (one of which to go). They gave me bowls to take snacks back for my DBF who's arriving from Nashville later tonight. They also gave me bottles of water to take back and went above and beyond even after knowing I was a fellow CM (believe it or not, some CMs will treat you differently if they know you are one too..odd I know.)

The resort seems to be pretty busy which I'm sure is due to Valentine's Day and President's Day in the same weekend.

I had Pepper Mkt for dinner which was good and took my cake to go! Tip..if you have a mug already from DDP, you can ask for a bottle of water as your beverage for the meal and they will fill the mug as well!

That's pretty much it for now!!!

Taking dd for 18th bday( with permission of dh/ds who will stay home). Since I just booked airfare and dates are 4/3-4/7 I was thrilled to find a pass holder rate was actually available! I was so close to booking CBR but when I checked availability on disney web it showed the business class room.

I KNEW WHERE TO LOOK FOR INFO, HERE!!!!

Thanks to all of you for info, I booked first 3 nights Business King and will definitely enjoy my all time favorite Disney drink- Red Sangria made the best only at CS!!
The location of 9b looks great too. With savings of the pass holder rate and food and drinks I am going to move for last day to YC Regatta Club.

I have stayed at a disney resort over 35+ times and still don't know everything, how the heck first timers survive I will never know!
Thanks again for great Coconino Cove info and pictures!! Made my planning easier and I have a huge smile on my face looking forward to a great mom n me trip.
