I hate for that to be a reason why we don't choose this resort, but I think it may be. I would love it if it were just DH and I, but I don't know if the room would work for my family. Has anyone else missed not having a table for meals in the room?
When we were there last (about 3 years ago), there was a table with two chairs in our room. Have they gotten rid of that?

Oh, it would be great if they did have a table and chairs! All of the pics I've seen just have a desk with one chair. But I don't know if the pics I've seen are old or if they have changed the rooms from tables to desks in the past few years.

I do believe they have changed this. There's a desk and like some little ottoman but don't let that shake you. I was just on another board where a mom said her sons sit on the edge of the bed and she adjusts the ironing board to the right height for them to use as a breakfast table There are always ways to find table space but you can't get a queen bed or a pyramid pool just anywhere.

Pictures from earlier this month. This was a 2-Queen room in Cabanas 9B. I don't know if a King room would have the table and 2 chairs, but I would think it's unlikely.

Wow, that is a great idea! I had previously taken CSR off of my list because of the lack of table, but I started looking at pictures of the resort and the Dig site and I became a lot more interested in the resort. The pool looks fantastic! Looks like I may have to add another resort into my consideration now, as if I didn't already have too many options, lol.

For those of you at CSR right now, I'm wondering if it's busier b/c of the Princess half expo?!?!? Considering staying there for next years race, just wondering if having the expo there is making it more crowded?

The table and chairs were removed when the rooms were refurbed in 2007. We always eat breakfast in our room, though, using the desk and the ottomans.

I missed the table too. When we were there we pulled the ottoman up to the desk beside the chair. It worked for us. We really liked the pool and preferred it to the CBR pool. the CBR pool seemed quite a bit smaller and thus more crowded

Which room section/building to request?

I'm trying to decide if I should ask for Casitas 4 or 5, or Cabana 8A or 8B.

It looks nice that Casitas 4 is near the health club(we will probably use it), a large quiet pool and the first bus stop. None of these choices look so so far away from the main pool.

On the other hand the Cabanas look nice since they are only 2 stories high and we wouldn't have to wait around for elevators. Am I correct that the hammocks are in the Cabanas area (DD is looking forward to relaxing on a hammock). Do they have hammocks in the Casitas also?

We've only stayed in mods that had just 2 floors, so didn't have to wait around for elevators. Is that much of an issue there? I hate hotels where we're waiting for elevators every time we want to go someplace.

It was your picture of the sangria that caused me to upgrade to business class room for my trip in September. Last trip was at POP and while it was a fine resort (some of the guests were another story) I have always stayed at a moderate in the past. I am hoping for the deluxe feel at a moderate price! How did you find the busses? Did you walk to the bus stop at El Centro or farther to the one for the cabanas? I felt like I stood on every bus ride at POP and trying to avoid that! LOL

There is one hammock in the casitas area, but most are near the cabanas.

We always request cabanas at CSR, but people don't usually complain about the elevators. The exception is the fourth floor of casitas 2 - the nearest elevator only goes to the third floor, but there is another elevator you can use to get to the fourth floor (or you can take the stairs from the third floor).

Just returned from our second stay. Requested Cabanas (no specific requests) and got put in Ranchos 7A pretty much as far out as you can get; we arrived at midnight, the resort was full and we were told that was the only option. I was disappointed, but the theming grew on me. I did feel like Ranchos was far from everything; I much preferred the theming and proximity of the Cabanas, and missed the water (obviously there aren't too many lakes in the desert...). We arrived after midnight with a child, and I was surprised that there was no help in getting us to our room. Huh? I certainly don't mind walking, but it was very late and we had a child (who started throwing up 3 hrs after we got into the room) and luggage, and we had to walk. Today we had to leave our room at 4:45am for Magical Express and bell services was booked so we again had to walk with all our luggage (and a child who still had a fever) because the busses were not running yet. DD and DH were terribly ill with a stomach virus the entire trip so the trip was very disappointing in general, and I am sure that soured my experience a lot. Still I left feeling like I lost the Disney magic and not sure I want to stay here (or gasp, return to Disney).

Also wanted to mention that our room in Ranchos was very loud; we could hear the busses and their beeping all night, people talking outside, as well as the guests in the neighboring rooms. I don't remember this being a problem in Cabanas, I remember it being quiet.

Were you able to make your request in advance or did you do it at check-in?

Sorry about your trip. No fun having stomach virus to deal with at home, let alone vacation.

I called to add the request to my reservation before we left. I could have tried to switch rooms later, but DD was sick so it was really out of the question and not a priority at that point. I wonder if I had arrived earlier in the day if I would have had a better chance at getting moved to Cabanas?
