That applies to the buses too!

I think you made the right choice. To me CSR is much nicer than CBR.

I'd go for CS instead of CB.

We like the convention crowd - they don't hog the pool, bus stops, and food.

The staff is good about not putting you near loud groups. Last time we went we asked/wanted a specific building. We could have it but the front desk suggested a quieter building.

I had zero interest in CSR too but decided to give it a shot last year because one of the items on our WDW "Bucket List" is to try all of the Moderate and Deluxe resorts at least once. I was actually very pleasantly surprised and now rank it #3 of the 4 Mods. POR is #1, POFQ is #2 and CBR is # 4 but that doesnt mean I wouldn't stay there again ... I haven't yet stayed at a WDW resort that I wouldn't try again.

When we priced our recent trip out it ended up costing less money to stay at a moderate with the Dining plan then to pay to upgrade from a Value's quick service dining plan. I'm not sure about your specifics but if your trip is anything like ours it might end up costing you less money to stay at the Moderate.

We are staying at CBR in Sept, but those double beds are bumming me out...CSR had the MOST comfy beds, loved them!!! CBR rooms are bigger, but the double beds are a bit of a downer...We loved CSR!
