Bus stop 2 is by Casitas 4, opposite end of CSR. Bus stop 1 at the main building is very close to Cabanas 9B, but it is the last stop to load for the parks.

Does CSR charge any added resort or parking fees? I've yet to see anything stating that they do but would like to be sure before our visit next weekend. Thanks

I stayed at CSR for the first time last month during the Princess Half Marathon. I really loved everything about it - the room, restaurants, and lake path. There are a number of photos of the hotel and our Preferred room (Casitas Building 3) in my summary file here. (It's 16MB so it might take a few minutes to upload. If it's too slow, there's a button at the top of the page to download the PDF file.)

Thanks for the pics! We are staying for the first time in June. I was nervous staying there but it looks very pretty. The restaurants and pool look awesome! Congrats on your half marathon!

OK, another question about the bus stops. How long of a walk is it from Cabanas 9B and the Bus Stop. It looks to me Bus Stop 4 would be closest rather than Bus Stop 1.
With it(bus stop 4) being the 3rd stop in the bus route, how likely is it to be a problem getting on the bus for a family of 5 (if the bus were full)?
Thanks

pool noodles?

Do they allow people to use pool noodles in the pools? I'm thinking of bringing a couple of them along, but I don't want to if it's something the lifeguards can't allow.

If they do allow them, do they have some available to use or is it best to throw a couple in the car?

I have a question about the CSR buses. How late do they run? If we are at dig site at night and want to take bus back to Casitas, what bus stop would we get on? Also, if we are staying in Casitas 4, the nearest bus stop is stop 2, right? if we get on bus in am to the parks, does that bus stop go all the way around the resort or does it go straight to parks?

Honestly, by the time you walk from the Digsite to bus stop 4, wait for the bus, and then ride it around to Casitas, it would be much much quicker to walk and not much more walking than the walk to the bus stop.

Bus stop 2 is by Casitas 4. It is the first stop to load for the parks. You do have to ride around to the other 3 stops, but you will always get a seat. Most consider bus stop 2 the best stop. Casitas 4 is our favorite location at CSR.

I've never seen noodles just floating in the Disney pools; unlike the Universal hotels where they have them free for use. I asked in another post if they sell the noodles at the pool. I was told that if it was a busy time of year that they do sell them at the pool.
