Fabulous job on the new thread .

I've been seriously considering CSR for our next trip and you've just pushed it back to the top of my list. The thread is organized very well and you have made excellent use of photographs.

Thanks for taking up the challenge of creating this new thread

I don't know about credits but the room service menu has a VERY nice selection! We went back and forth about ordering for breakfast and dinner but decided not to for "budget" reasons. We fully intend to try it out at least once on our next visit. What's a vacation without room service?!

Marina - sounds like it is open duirng peak/holiday times.
We will be at CSR Easter weeks in 2010 - do you think the Marina will be open for us to use ?

Also from the pictures of the rooms - moving the 2 square small chairs to where the connecting room door is, will leave us enough room to place a twin areo bed, next to the window. We are a family of 4, but our teen DS does not/should not sleep with our teen DD.

Thank you for all your CSR knowledge.
Thank you.

The Marina was open this past Easter, so if they keep with that proposed schedule then I believe it will be open when you are there.

I don't think you'll have any problem by moving the two ottomans and fitting a twin aero bed at all.

If I wanted to order room service does it count as 2 TS credits??

Also what does the menu look like???
Good question. I just checked the brochure for the dining plan and it does not list the CSR room service this year. I don't know if that is an oversight or if they eliminated (not sure why they would when all of the restaurants are on the plan). Maybe someone who is going soon can find out for sure. If it is on the dining plan, yes, it is 2 TS credits like all of the deluxes. I'm posting "old menus" here...I'm not sure if you'll be able to read them:

Thanks. We think Glen has a friend too...but I haven't verified that yet.

I'm glad to hear it. We really love it there. It has just about everything you could ask for in a deluxe (except indoor corridors and perhaps another restaurant), but at a moderate price that we can afford.

Smile Awesome Job Kathy

Hi Kat ... great job on the new thread! Very informative and it looks good too. Thanks for being so willing to share your CSR knowledge and enthusiasm with us - you must spend hours replying to people each day.

I only posted on the old thread once or twice, but I've been addicted to it since we booked our upcoming trip ... only 28 more days to go!

I didn't realize CSR had "real" room service, that's something to consider. Ds is "to the manor born" apparently and loves having breakfast brought to him. I try to do it once on every vacation, but so far haven't on Disney trips.

Thanks for all the work, Kathy, it looks great.

Kathy, I just want you to know, if I hadn't recently joined DVC, you would have me totally sold on CSR. In fact, I know we can use points to stay at CSR, and I think I just might try it sometime (staying at a deluxe on points is exorbitant, but the mods are fairly reasonable.) Which brings me to a question, honestly, why isn't CSR a deluxe? Exterior corridors? After going thru your opening posts, I can't see a difference. Anyway, just wanted to say "great work" and thanks for all you do on these forums : )

Room Service and Dining Plan

When I was there in October of 2008 I was told that Room Service does NOT take the DDP. I'm not sure why.
I didn't mind and paid OOP for a wonderful breakfast...so nice to have it delivered hot and fast.

Kathy,

Great new thread - well done! Remember if there are any specific pictures you want taken whe we go in September (we are there for 14nights this time!) please ask.

I will try and get the updated menus for all the restaurants & room service if you would like? I can also get some photos of the inside of the PM & Maya Grill as well if you want to add them?

Anyway, thanks for doing this. It will be our last stay at CSR for a while as we bought into DVC recently but we still love the place

All I can say is WOW!!!! Kathy you did such a fabulous job. Thanks so much for all the hard work that we know went into this. All the information is arranged so perfectly and the pictures are gorgeous. Like a previous poster, I didn't really think that I'd give CSR another try, but thanks to you and the CSR FAQ thread I am really looking forward to both my trips to CSR in Sept/Oct and then again in Dec. I have to admit that even the Ranchos look much better than I thought they did when I was there before. That's still the one area I don't want to be assigned to, but at least I don't think it'd be the end of the world now if I did get stuck out there. Thanks again for all your hard work.
