Do you sit looking out the window or what? With the way the walkways are I t's not like a mk view room at cr or something where you can look out and see
Confused, tia
I actually think view matters more in this case. I'm not going to be constantly sitting out on a balcony, but I will be seeing the view immediately outside the door of my room multiple times a day - even more than most because I'm a smoker and will be coming and going to the DSAs while we're at the resort. Since it matters so little to you maybe you could volunteer to take a bad view to save someone else from it!

I agree with this thinking. I much prefer room location (close proximity to the amenities) than the view.

Not me. To me view = what I see out the window. Location = what I am or am not nearest to in proximity (food court, pool, bus stop, etc).

Location governs the view, both from the window and on travel to/from.
Proximity governs location.

Aaaanyway. Not sure why we're questioning why ppl care about view in rooms. Entire hotel pricing structures are based on view so of course it's important.

Back OT: does anyone have pics or info about CSR bed rails? Can they add just one to a bed? Is it easily moved?

Always heard that end of January is a great time to visit the world because of low crowds, weather, etc. Yesterday, I decided to book a "girls only" trip for myself and my two girls and was told there were no business class rooms available. I did go ahead and put a deposit on a preferred room for now but not sure I'll be keeping it. Anyone know if there is something happening at the end of January that would take the business class rooms out of inventory? TIA.

There may be a convention booked? OP lists scheduled events but I believe I have only seen 2014 so far.

Thanks...was hoping that they'd be finished by January since the refurbs were starting next month.

You won't regret it. I love CSR rooms but the RR is much nicer and well themed without looking corny.

No, they don't start until January. Next month looks like they are changing the water heaters in preferred rooms.

thats a solid point and I have no issue taking the bad views and in fact pick them often, see below

I always pick the standard view rate at Disney, never found a reason not too
It was a few yrs back and I didn't pay to close attn but one room we were traveling with had them and it seems like the the normal ones you slip under the mattress
The pack and play was a typical graco fwiw

Confused, tia
It's all about the ambiance. I enjoy a nice view and a nice room location. If it doesn't happen all the time I don't make a fuss over it but I usually request it. What's better than enjoying your coffee and walking out of your room overlooking the beautiful lake in the middle of CSR. Also it makes the frequent walks back and forth more enjoyable.

Congratulations! I too went to CSR for my college graduation 2 years ago with my then boyfriend (now husband)! We stayed in the Cabanas and couldn't have wished for a better location. It was close to El Centro and the Dig Site and had an amazing view. I just liked the overall feel to it. Parking lot views aren't horrible but are of course less desired than a garden/courtyard/lake view. I don't regret paying a little extra for a better view. It all added into the magic of our trip!

p.s. my husband actually prefers parking lot views because he enjoys checking up on our car from the comfort of the room haha, but I still book rooms with nicer views!
