Just got back from 8 days at CSR...OMG!

I will type up more later and get pictures up as soon as I get some laundry going.

All I can say is PERFECTION....It was like two vacations..one at Disney and one at an amazing Mexican Resort. Maria the bar tender is amazing, the pool fab and the Pepper Market...YUMMY.

Our room was SPOTLESS and I mean SPOTLESS after a few reports I looked. Trust me. We were in Cabanna's 8B with a wonderful water view. (pictures coming soon).

I am sure all the Disney resorts are amazing but Buzz has a reason for devoting a website to this place. Thank you Thank you!

Pictures coming soon.

Starting to download the bizzion pictures I took.

The place was very romantic. We were there for our 18th Ann. CSR, Belle and the Beast left us balloons and an autographed picture. My husband would put our kids to bed 13 and 9....walk to the bar, have a drink, and go and lay on the hammock right outside our room. The view amazing.

So happy that you loved CSR. Thanks for the report and are looking forward to reading more. You made me all the more anxious for our trip which is just a little over five weeks away for our 25th anniversary celebration!

Welcome back! Glad you had a great trip! Looking forward to seeing your pictures.

Did you try anything from Cafe Rix, by chance? I am curious how the food is there.

gee, now I feel like "the secret" is getting out! but, I LOVE CSR!!! like a previous poster said, you could stay at that resort and never go to the parks!
a tip: whichever section you are in, be sure to walk THROUGH the Casitas at night. (NOT along the promenade, THROUGH) there is a Rotunda, fountains, etc. In fact, go up to the 3rd floor, where you can walk along the outer hallways and look down on all this. we love to explore resorts, and this is the sprawling resort to do this!
if you have little ones and convenience is important, ask for Cabanas. as adults only, we like the casitas. be aware, as a convention hotel, there might be some nighttime "noise" in the Casitas, as the conventioneers head back from the bar to their rooms.
this is also the BEST main pool... love the slide. have fun!!!
