I'll post more as we go along, but it's mid 80's and humid, not exactly November weather. Tomorrow supposed to be hot also, then the bottom drops out (to a point).

CSR is still beautiful as always. Of course we requested Cabana 9B, and of course, it's kinda getting stuff done to it right now. So I had asked if our room from last year was available. It wasnt, I had booked a standard view, but after smiling right to the young lady working the check in, we got a water view. Now, most people like 1st floor, and they were going to do that, and I kinda frowned and said we like upper floors so we dont have to listen to people above us. Heck, I didnt know CSR casitas had 4 floors That's were I'm at and LOVE IT. Beatufil water view that I'll post later. Casita 3 much more on the 'El Centro' end. Hey, I asked for a suite but couldnt smile good enough for that .

Ate at pepper market, and got our mugs!!! So here we are!!!

Oh, btw, what exactly is in a wet burrito.. I've seen pics of it, but what's in it??
Have a great trip!!

The wet burrito has rice, beans, chicken or steak, tomatoes, lettuce and much more. It's huge, covered in cheese and delicious.

We've scheduled our first stay for March 11-18th. Will the rooms all be remodeled by then? We requested Cabana 9b or 9a for our stay. I've stayed at all the other Moderates this will be our first CSR experience.

Cabana 9b is out of the question unless you upgrade to club level. I doubt the cabanas will be done by then because I think I read they started with the casitas.

I can not wait for 2010 and all the CSR renovations to be completed !

Why not just ask for the Cabana section and a nice view ? That is what we will do. We have never been disapointed by any room WDW has given us (or Starwood - Dolphin).

When we stayed at the CR, we were bumped from the Garden Wing to the Tower. Our room was on the Chef Mickey side and you could hear the Chef Mickey Celebration song from our bathroom in the AM and PM - but hey we were in the Tower). From our CR Tower room, if you looked down you saw the convention building roof, the bus stop, cars driving in, but if you looked straight across we saw MK fire works, the monoral and some rides in MK.
Maybe it was not the best CR Tower room if you were paying $400/night - but again, we had a great bargain, $250/night for a CR Tower room duing Memorial Day week. We enjoyed every minute of it.

At the Dolphin, we paid for a standard room at an AAA rate. Since we are starwood members and repeat guests - we were bumped to a Wing room which over looked the pools and you could see AK from the room. We also had a balcony - a nice plus. But from the balcony, if you looked up to your right, we saw the base of the Dolphin statue, nice and close. Again we paid $235 for a balcony room in the outside Dolphin Wing, for 12 nights, during Easter weeks, peak time.


So, we let WDW pick our room. Every room may have something bad about it, but let the magic of WDW be your guide and you will enjoy.

Glad you are enjoying CSR! Can't wait to read your full report!

Sorry Jamey I never got in to meet you. I was always in bed by 10:30:

I loved our location at building 9A however it did NOT have queen beds yet!

We overlooked the quiet pool and that was wonderful. Not to far for bus stop 4, Dig Site or El centro.

Hope everyone has a great trip!
Glad you had a great trip!!

We had such a magical trip, no one would believe all the magical things that happened to us. If anyone is celebrating a birthday while in WDW make sure you get your birthday pin and where it everyday. The CM at checkin told my mom to wear her pin, and all of the "Happy Birthday"s from CM's was so nice. Buses were excellent, longest wait was for an Epcot bus on Sunday morning, waited about 23 minutes, no big deal. The parks were barren. MK was a little crowded on Saturday, longest standby I saw was 40 mins for BTMRR and the longest at Epcot was 45 mins for Soarin. Otherwise, it was usually a 5-20 min wait, some rides weren't even using the fastpasses, there was no need to. Thanks to everyone for the advice and tips about CSR...I would stay there again for certain!
Glad you had a great trip!
