Just back from CSR

and it was beautiful and peaceful. We all loved it! The pools was amazing, the bus service was fabulous. Our longest wait was literally 7 minutes - and we went to the parks everyday for 8 days.

Pepper Market had really, really good food - a huge selection, and huge portions.

We rented one of the 2 person bikes and peddaled around the resort so that we could get a good look at it, and the entire resort is so quiet and nice. I wouldn't have a problem staying anywhere there.

I don't think I could get my DH to stay anywhere else now.

I agree with your overall assessment of the resort. I have stayed there 3 times, and will probably stay there again in the future. It definitely is a great resort.

We stay deluxe when budget allows, but CSR is a firm favorite with us too.

It's funny how different people can be there at the same time and have a different experience.

We just returned from 6 nights as well. We were in 9B, which is close to El Centro and the last bus. We were the only ones on our bus to Epcot last Sunday afternoon. Most of the time the busses were not crowded, although there was standing room only a couple of times. We were also the only ones on the bus returning from AK. The only thing I didn't like about this hotel is that the walls are not soundproof (or soundproof enough). I don't know why hotels can't spend a few extra dollars. Because there is central air at CSR, you also can't use your air conditioning unit to provide white noise. I woke up one night at 12:30 pm, to hear the guy next door screaming at his kids when they returned from somewhere! Thank goodness they checked out the next day. Another night a couple came in to their room on the other side and screamed at each other for 5 minutes. Come to think of it, we saw a lot of people screaming at each other and their kids in the parks. And one woman was going ballistic at the CM at a store in MGM. Next time I will take ear plugs.

Thanks

Thanks for sharing we leave in 22 days and are staying there for the first time. I am glad to hear about the bide rentals. My son and I will have to do that. Do they have a fridge in the rooms or can you request them? I am looking forward to the peppers market. It sonds really great.

Were the corwds very bad this time of year at the parks? We usually go in late Jan and the crowds are so low. Thanks

There is a fridge in the room.
I thought that the crowds were not too bad until this past Saturday. We went to the MK for a couple of hours before we left. The crowds were horrendous, and the people kept pouring in. It was hot, too. They had lots of characters out that day, though, which was kind of surprising. A lot were out in sunny places, too. I was too hot to stand in line, so I can't imagine how miserable they were!
