2, will i have a fridge in the room if not is there anything i can do to get one?

3, to get to the parks should i drive (got a rental as part of the package) or should we use the busses?

1. Coke products
2. You should have a fridge
3. Depends on how quickly you want to get to the parks. I would recommend driving if you are running late for a ADR. The buses generally run every 20 minutes.
4. 2am.

Hope that helps. Have a wonderful trip.

Late night busses from DTD can be few and far between. After a late movie, my wife and I waited for about 30 minutes alone at the bus stop before catching a cab back to CSR. We used the busses for transport to the parks and didn't have any problems whatsoever. The longest bus ride is to the MK, but it was only 15-18 minutes depending on traffic. I suggest catching the bus at any stop other than Station #1. Several times by the time the bus got to stop #1 the bus was full and couldn't take anymore passengers. We used stop #4 and had no problems. Drinks are Coke products (no Dr. Pepper) and are available at El Centro and at the pool food counter when it is open. We were there at the end of May 2013. Have a great trip. CSR is a beautiful resort.

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".

Squash drinks... is that popular in GB? Because it's not in America No juice drinks that I can recall, but if you're on the dining plan, you have the option for juice at breakfast.

Fridges should be done by the time you arrive but if they aren't, they are only being out to those who need it for medical reasons.

As for driving, I personally hate driving on vacation (and if I were from overseas, I'd hate driving on the right side of the road!) but many will say it will get you there faster which is probably true. We also like to have a few drinks, so it's much easier for us to just take the bus. If you decide to drive, I say you should still bus to MK to avoid having to take the ferry from the parking lot.

In GB Squash is a soft drink made from a fruit-based concentrate diluted with water. I would assume it is similar to us drinking lemonade, or a fruit punch.
