Agreed! We stayed in 8b, great location in Cabana's. We all enjoyed watching the sun setting from the hammocks bus stop 4 out back, quiet pool and laundry right outside

Hi everyone. We will be staying for the first time at CSR and I have a dining question. We have stayed at POP the last few years and have always used our refillable mugs when eating meals at the resort and got bottles of juice or milk to take back to the room for our "drink" with the meal. Can you do this here? It was always nice to have those for breakfast the next day. I know this thread will give me the best answer! Thanks!

Another question re CSR...we're thinking of switching to a CSR waterview room from our AoA family suite. Do the rooms have fridges in them and microwaves?

Apologies if this question has already been asked.

I think there are a few microwaves available at the front desk, but they are first come, first served. All rooms have fridges.

Does CSR charge for having garden grocer deliver besides the bell service tip?

We checked in at 10:15 this morning. I had requested Casitas 4 or 5, but we got some pixie dust and ended up in Cabanas 9, first floor! Our daughter is turning 2, and they gave her birthday balloons at checkin, and when we got to our room, there was a voicemail from Mickey and Minnie singing happy birthday to her. So far, so magical!

The resort is gorgeous, but my oh my is it huge. After dinner tonight at Downtown Disney, we might watch Wreck It Ralph at the main pool.

Only minor complaint is it took 30 minutes earlier this afternoon to get from Downtown Disney back to CSR, no exaggeration, and it wasn't even that busy. Next time we will probably stay at a monorail resort, since I don't want to spend so much of our trip on a bus. Hopefully the rest of our stay sees quicker travel times!

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

Javail- It always seems to take a long time on the downtown disney buses no matter what resort you are at. CSR has some of the best transportation so I hope you have better luck going to the parks.

We we're suppose to go this November for our honeymoon but now we pushed it back to next November, This will be our first trip the WDW so 550 days is weighing on me. We're hoping for casita 4 or 5. We definitely want to stay away from el rancho if we can, being from Vegas I don't care for the desert scene during the disneymoon.

Really excited to use garden grocer as well, what a great idea.

Hi all, just got back Sunday from our first visit to CSR. We really liked it! We requested the Cabanas but got placed in Ranchos 6A instead. DH tried to get a different room but they weren't able to accomodate us (boo). However, it wasn't bad there. It was about a 10 minute walk in the mornings to El Centro for Breakfast (and then we would get on the bus at stop 1) but in the evenings we would get off at stop 3 and it was a short walk back to the room. Our morning walks were actually very pleasant and relaxing honestly. We didn't feel far from the main pool either. All in all it was a wonderful resort!
