Tink is on the soap! This is an enlarged picture. She is much smaller than this on the soap.

I especially enjoy those toiletries photos! I know we're weird this way, but we love our Disney H2O products!!

One thing I ran into on one stay was that I was advised to do online check in again AFTER they did their notation. You may want to ask about this.

Added Cabanas 9B request.

Also confirmed with CM that we are all checked in.

Counting the days (and considering picking the kids up early from school to go early)!!

I just got back on Sunday from 10 nights at CSR

We got stuck in Ranchos building 7A. I really don't mind walking, I don't own a car and walk everywhere at home but about halfway through the trip we were getting tired of the long walk just to refill our mugs(didn't know we could refill at the pool during the day). It was so hot that by the time we got to our room or the pool we would have finished our mugs ;-)
Also we had a second floor room and boy was that confusing, we kept getting lost trying to find the stairs in our building.
I did ask about a new room and was offered one in Building 4(?) on day 4 or 5 but in the end we stayed in our room since at least it was close to the Dig Site Pool.
Definitely doing online check in next time.

I can't believe we missed the new toiletries, I love Tink! We left on Saturday the 12th so they must have done the changes after we left.

Mousekeeping wasn't that great, we thought that our room was not vacuumed once the whole time we were there and my duvet/quilt/comforter(whatever you want to call it) cover was not changed once as there was a pen mark on it the day we arrived and it was still there when we left.

While I agree that CSR is a beautiful resort, I think I almost prefer more traditional hotels, where all the rooms are in one building. So I will need to do my research to see what fits out budget for a 2014 trip

Rienchen - You may want to go preferred next time and quilts are most likely never changed unless soiled.

If you like the all in one feel then POFQ may be what you are looking for. ENJOY!

A few pages back, someone had posted that they got these one day and a different scent another day.

I know! I love the product and even bought the Mickey H2O products in the past to keep at home, so I can get my Disney fix. My bottles are almost empty. I was at Panchitos twice but didn't think to look to see if they carry the new products.

I must say, the mosquitos seemed to like the grapefruit scent. My legs are so bit up. That's the only place bit up and the only place I put the lotion.

Did you call housekeeping? Due to going green, there are certain things they won't change unless you call them, perhaps the bed spread is one of these? The vacuuming should have been done daily. I would have called housekeeping and requested it. Our room was vacuumed daily during our 3 night stay.

How much more are the preferred rooms in Casitas 1,2, &3? I never see a price listed for these anywhere? Will you definitely be guaranteed a room in one of those buildings? I just want to be in the Casitas, don't really care what building though. But if I pay preferred than I would definitely be in one of them, right?

Hello!

Is free wifi offered in the CSR rooms? I thought I saw someone mention that, but I'm not sure.

When DBF and I stayed at the All Star Sports resort last yearwe had to use the ethernet cable for internet connection.

I'm so sorry I was in 9A not 9B. Room #9127

I forgot to mention that 9A isn't very close to any bus stops. It was perfect for us because we drove. Oh and we were in 9A not B. So sorry if I am causing you and extra phone call.

9B is the closest buildng to El Centro and that bus stop. 9A is kind of half way between stops 4 and 1.

Yes, free wifi in all the rooms and common areas. Though I could not pick it up on my phone at the Cabana quiet pool
