*sigh* if only I could AFFORD the Executive Suite! LOL

We had a connecting door in our room and never had any problems. YOu'd never know there was someone next door. The good thing about CSR is that you'll never have a flow of people flying past your doors. If there not in your area, you'll probably never see them unless they're coming around to take pictures of the view (we had only a few people come around our section to take snaps of the waterview). I'm tellin ya, it's about as serene as you can get!

We got a free upgrade to an executive suite a few years ago.

Kat, that menu you posted for room service looks the same as the one we saw on our trip in April/May. We didn't use the dining plan, so can't help there. We got the chicken bucket and it was good, fed 3 adults and one child. (one of those adults don't eat much)

What are the odds of getting your room location request? I prefer Casitas 4 or 5. I am disabled and use the buses, so getting on an early bus stop is important. Also, this is my honeymoon, so I also prefer a water view... I can't use internal transportation because of my wheelchair... Have people had good luck getting a location they wanted? The casitas just look so romantic!

also, how far in advance do they assign disabled accessible rooms? I know they are assigned earlier than other rooms, and I want to put in my request at the proper time! thanks

Unfortunately, not until 2010 (and we are hoping for that). We had to cancel this year.

Hi! Best thing for you to do is call resort special needs 407-939-7807 # 1.
Be sure to have your reservation number handy, explain your accessible room need and ask if they would please block an accessible (1st fl if needed) room in Casita's 4 or 5, close to the bus. And if you have paid for a water view, let them know that as well. They are very helpful.

Hope this helps! Have a wonderful Disneymoon!!

(P.s. Kathy, I'm sorry, did not notice the post when I posted to you)
