This is not a "FULL" list. This list consists from research on the web and information passed on from fellow CSR lovers. Please post any conventions/meetings that you find.
StitchandPooh'sMom,

I don't know if anyone has informed you of this yet or not, but there is a convention, Home Based Travel Agent Forum, to be held here October 28-30, 2013. Just thought I'd pass this on for your list!

Phew! Finally made it through this whole thread! I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the questions and awesome answers! I don't have one single question that hasn't already been answered... yet! We are staying at the CSR for the first time in the middle of October. I can not wait!!

I am also bummed I haven't gotten a PIN yet for the FDP. It was free last October when we went. We are on a budget this year (thanks to buying a new house!) so if we could get the DP plan free, I would totally try to upgrade to BC! Or have more spending money!

As far as I know it's 24hrs. You use your room key to get in.

I got a free dining PIN e-mail on Thursday and booked CSR Friday.

We are going down Oct 30th - November 5th.

Now I am a deluxe girl for sure. I have done a value once and a moderate once on trips with my dance studio ... but for family trips we always go deluxe.

Not this time!!! ... I am taking the moderate plunge. I really like what I see from CSR threads and I did book business class because I love the fact that we can grab a quick/light breakfast in the AM and not use our snack credit.

I just couldn't get past the $1000 savings this time. LOL. Plus, I wanted to try something different.

My kids are all teenagers now so I plan on having some relaxing time while they go to Disney Quest and some other things. I can't wait to sit by the pool or in a hammock while sipping a frozen drink!

No, there is Casitas 4 & 5, Cabanas 8A, 8B, & 9A, as well as Ranchos 6 & 7. We had Casitas 4 last time and loved it.

Anyone still enjoy CSR with young kids? Our oldest will be 5 and youngest will be a week shy of 2.. We booked CBR because of the pool and pirate ship area, thought it looked better for us but I cant stop thinking about how beautiful the CSR rooms are.

The pool and surrounding area at CSR is great for kids as well. There is no Pirate Ship, but a large pool with a large play area for kids. I would say with the exception of the ship the pool area at CSR is a touch better for kids.

Thank you! Like I said I don't mind crowded or standing, but I hate waiting for a second bus because the first one is full. I'm not hearing that is too much of an issue, so I think I'll go with business class.
