Then again I won't be there until November so it will probably not even be an issue anyway.
I'm hoping its all resolved by November!

Unless something has recently changed, the answer is no, Jr Suite is not Business Class and does not have Coconino Cove Lounge access.

I quote myself with new because by definition an update is new so it really is redundant to say a new update, lol. Anyway, I digress, I was looking for something more up to date since that convention is starting in 3 days.
thank you, that's exactly what I meant, a newer update. I wanted to hear from people who either just returned or who were there right now to say if they had a working fridge or not. We arrive on 9/18 and we usually make a grocery run on our way so I don't want to show up with cold food and no fridge.

For some reason on the fridge report thread there is nothing listed for CSR which is confusing if I'm to believe the earlier report that 3/4 of the fridges have been replaced already.

I was just informed this morning by a cm that all but one building's refrigerators are replaced. So chances are very good of having a refrigerator. I was not informed which building does not.

I know what you mean. I have 3 children one being an infant. It I don't have a fridge I need to bring a cooler so I need to know before I get there. My trip isn't till October but I am the uber planner and like to know plenty ahead of time.

We had no problems catching a bus from Cabana's (bus stop 4) we too like to be up and out early and the buses were never full when we hit the parks We stayed in block 8B (rooms 8500-8683) the bus stop was behind the block so not far to walk after a long day, a quiet pool and the laundry right next to the block too

business class is only in one building and you pay extra for it. Jr. suites are a type of room like a king room and although they cost more and are bigger they are separate from business class. I do believe there is one jr. suite in the business class building but not sure of the cost difference.

Sometimes, if I wanted a Diet Coke, I just filled my mug before being seated.

Also, even tho they seat you, I would think they'd try to seat you in an area you wanted if you explain where you'd like to be to them just before being seated.

.
Seriously!? You can get a refill on milk? Awesome!

I'm not sure about there being a Jr Suite in 9B, but there is no booking category for Jr Suite-Business Class.

I had some wonderful conversations with the CMs in February and asked specifically about the different Suite types getting Lounge access. None of them get access to Coconino Cove.

just got back... great Business Class stay!

just got back yesterday from an amazing 11 night stay in Business Class! it was a last minute upgrade after reading the great details here - what a fantastic source of info and pix! i would DEF stay in Business Class again - the breakfasts were great - i felt we eat much healthier here than a heavy breakfast elsewhere. lots of fresh fruit and other choices for our family! Stopped by many evenings for some light snacks and drinks - could take two to go, also! The staff in the lounge was GREAT - always chatted about our plans and gave us some neat inside info and tips for WDW. was never too crowded in there... We all loved the pool - the waterslide was fun and there was a movie most nights at the pool at 9:00.

Being in Cabana 9B near the food court to fill our mugs and grab something to eat was great... stayed at CBR three years ago and walked very far for everything, so this was a treat!! my kids - 9 and 11 - loved the resort and did NOT want to leave... not many issues waiting for the bus, just a few times it felt longer than it probably was! lol if you absolutely want to make the rope drop or have a ADR, give yourself plenty of time to play it safe! I would definitely recommend this resort - we enjoyed some extra downtime at the quiet pool while i did laundry and the Dig Site too!

just wish Mousekeeping could have left more towel art/animals for the kids... i left a note one day pretty much asking for one with a tip and then we got one on our third day, but never again in our 12 days there. but no major complaints with room being made up ,etc... Back to reality now
