There is free wifi?

We just booked our vacation for the end of August. Fourth year in a row @ CSR.

Yup! They actually rolled it out while we were there in October. I believe all the moderates have some wifi now. CSR was the first moderate to receive it due to the fact it is a convention resort.

The CSR really is a fantastic resort . I stayed there at the end of May 2011 and into the first week of June, and loved every minute of it . The grounds are beautiful, as you can see in these wonderful pictures throughout this thread. The rooms are nicely decorated, and the pool is great. When I was there I got a little tired of the food court. Though the food was always good, the service was not. I encountered maybe 3 nice, pleasant CM's at the Pepper Market (the drink station, and the greeters) the whole time. I enjoyed the one meal I had at the Maya Grill, and I also thought the gift shop was great as well. Overall, I would highly recommend this resort. It is a little large, but its size and beauty are perfect for the days when you need to relax a little from the busy parks.

As for the "Disney feel", it depends on if you're talking about level of service, or theming...it certainly has the level of service that I've come to expect from Disney, but I'm not so sure this resort has a lot of Disney theming compared to the other resorts I've stayed at, but for me that didn't take away anything from my experience. There was just enough Disney to keep me reminded that I was in fact in Disney World, which is nice when you are like me and get tired of the more boldly themed resorts if you have an extended stay (which, don't get me wrong, are also nice, but have a completely different feel).
