Just had to post since I just got off the phone with Disney!!!
Welcome! The Pepper Market is still a buffet for breakfast and lunch, and it is a quick service credit if you are on the DDP. There are grab n go items at Cafe Rix if you want something lighter for breakfast, and several other counter service locations for lunch and dinner. Dinner at Pepper Market is a la carte.

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

I guess I have to say for me it was the scenery - just walking around on the beautiful spacious sidewalks and looking at all the flowers, the different types of palm trees, the lake, the white sand "beach" by the Cabanas, the bridges, the architecture of the El Centro building, etc. Just the "feel" of it -- very very nice. I really didn't want to leave.

The beds - super comfortable and better than any deluxe we have tried!

The buses - very efficient and not usually crowded.

The pool - big, with room to play, and a great slide!

I'm helping someone with a trip to CSR. Does anyone know if bikes are rented at CSR and if they are, what the cost is?

I just put in a request via fax to CSR for our August trip (14th-22nd) to be in the Casitas section. I didn't ask for any special type of view or room, just to be in that themed section. I checked and there is NOT a conference taking place during our dates (which I'm very happy about!) I know the conference people tend to be put in that area. How likely is it that CSR will fulfill our request? I will definitely send another fax a few days ahead of our arrival to confirm and to reiterate our request. I'm super excited, this is our first time trying CSR!

I'm curious about where they put the convention attendees. My dh got approved to
attend the MUSE conference and the end of the month, and I'm going along, too!!! Even
though I just returned from an 11-day trip with a friend. Looks like his convention
info says it's for a water view category, but no indication what section that might be in.
Can't wait to find out, and have lunch at the Pepper Market again!

The marina has been closed for over a year. No bike rentals or boat rentals anymore.

Requests via fax are no longer honored on Disney property. Your best bet is to call Disney Reservations and have it noted on your reservation.

As lovethattink said, CSR does not look at faxes anymore prior to assigning rooms. Your best bet is to call reservations and make the request. You can also pay for a preferred room - preferred rooms are in casitas 1, 2 and 3. Casitas 4 and 5 are still nonpreferred locations.

For some of the smaller conventions, they do seem to concentrate convention people in the casitas (as far as I can tell from reading posts). Larger conventions may have attendees in all sections.

Water view is available in all sections and may include the lake, the quiet pools or the fountains in the casitas.

may seem silly, but is Think engraved on the soap like Mickey was? While my little girl loves Tinkerbell, if she's not on the soap like Mickey was, she may get upset....
