We did a split stay several weeks ago: CSR & AKL. Bus service to/from MK was not good at either resort.

So looking at the map I'm thinking either 7b or 8a would be where I'd like to be...we just have a regular room...would I be able to be in either of those buildings? 9b looks like a decent area too.

I'm looking to be close to the Dig Site...we don't mind walking to the food court.

Yes, 7B and 8A are the closest buildings to the Digsite. 8A is favorite amongst many posters here. 9B is the Business Class rooms so you would have to book that category.

How does 8b rank??
In my unscientific research 8b seemed to be closer the the main building, ie food but also close to bus/dig
I will have 6 kids from 1-10 yrs old and wante'd the best for bus/pools/food

I haven't read the whole thread, so please forgive me if it's been discussed. I see that CSR has different options for birthday cakes than the other resorts. Has anyone had a CSR cake? I'm deciding between the strawberry shortcake or Oreo birthday cakes or I might just go with a standard Mickey head cake from a restaurant. I would love to see pictures of any of the CSR cakes but would like to at least know what you thought of them. I read through some of the cake chatter thread but those were mostly custom cakes & spending $100+ on a cake for the 4 of us doesn't appeal to me. Thanks in advance!

8B is a great location as well. 8A is technically closer to the Digsite, which is what the other poster wanted. IMO you can't go wrong with a room anywhere in the Cabanas.

Sorry I can't help with that one!

I would gamble on the Oreo cake myself, but just a guess. Good luck!

Thanks for the response!
I did find some pictures of individual pieces of cake from Café Rix, I suppose it's a good chance that they would be the same. Looks yummy!

I've searched but can't find the answer to this question...does Siestas pool bar offer any snacks using a dining plan credit? I've looked at photos of the menu but don't see the DDP logo next to any of the items, even those that seem like they may be considered a snack. I'm pretty sure they take credits for quick service meals (I think I saw that on the DDP brochure) but I'm wondering if the kids could get anything for a snack in the afternoons? Fruit? Fries? Smoothies?

My husband had had the chocolate cake on the top right and he loved it. I had a red velvet one and it was ok but that strawberry one looks yummy. ..

Thank you! And when do you ask for specific locations? When you check in? Or should I have done that when I booked?
