We were on DDP and used the lounge a lot. The breakfast was a great addition in the morning and after buying something to eat and maybe a milk or juice it's about $10 each anyways. For the CM discount, it was about $22 extra a day (for 2 adults).

The snacks at night, if we were heading to a park and would be out late, we would take snacks back to the room before we left to have them upon returning and if we were out we were back before 10. Any drinks we just put them in the fridge. The CMs can help you with plastic plates or bowls if you want to take things back with you. They were all very friendly and loved hearing about how your day went/is going.

I would suggest it for anyone!

It's not meant to be comparable to club level. Business class provides a few minor perks for a few extra dollars it seems. That is a pretty pathetic spread that Poly laid out, but I wouldn't expect the normal type of CL spread here.

I'm sorry, but how much extra per day is this? I usually stay offsite, but have a chance to stay there for a conference in September, and if its a good deal I may try to add this

You know the WL had the same snacks set out at their CL as well. I think it was because most people are out at the parks in the afternoon, but I still thought they should of had more to offer as compared to what they had for breakfast and dinner options. Maybe some sandwich fixings and bread at least??

I got the pass holder rate over spring/Easter break. I am paying less than $40 a night for this compared to regular room. If I have 2 glasses of wine and breakfast for myself and my daughter I break even. The sangria's at CSR are the best on property. Night it is only open 5-10 but since the same offerings you can hit it at 5p and head out for night or come back from parks early and catch it at end of day. At Deluxe the appetizers only out 5-7p. Also we are light eaters so fruit n cheese IS a meal for us).

Extra perk is the building location. 9b is right in between feature pool and main building with check-in/food/ shops etc.Also 9b is adjacent to beach area with hammocks and Cabana pool. I am really looking forward to trying it. If you haven't seen pics or video yet, check it out. Also look at a map for 9b location. I would recommend this for a change of pace.

Hope that helps!
CS is my favorite moderate! I have stayed there 5 times and am looking forward to this perk.

This is what I am struggling with. We don't drink much alcohol but we want to use this for breakfasts. But since breakfast has such limited options such as pastries and fruit, I'm thinking we'd be sick of it after a day or two and i might be pointless

Only you can decide! My kids like the fanci-ness of getting free water , drinks and snacks in a special room. If that doesn't make you do "the happy dance" then you know it is not for you.

Find what makes you happy and do that and have a great time.

I don't drink alcohol at all. But for me, besides the muffins or cereal for breakfast, the couple hundred more dollars was worth it for having a prime area at CSR.

I don't get what's so "prime" about this location. In my opinion, you're closest to the last bus pickup stop for the parks so you may have to stand on the bus if the bus isn't already full and has left for the park before even hitting the El Centro stop. I'd love some insight on this if I'm thinking something wrong about it.

That's what sold me too. At the other mods you can pay ~$20 more per night to have the best location, but at CSR the preferred rooms really aren't ideal for families because they are close to the convention center rather than the feature pool. So in my mind the location accounts for the a good share of the upgrade cost.

It is close to both the main building and the feature pool. For us, shorter walks to/from an evening swim or a run for mug refills matter more than a shorter walk to an advantageous bus stop in the morning, particularly when we're traveling in the winter months and often find that walk back from the pool to be rather chilly.
