The "carts" used to take people from one end of the resort to the other. However, they did away with that a few years ago and it is basically only offered to convention guests. However, on occasion, you will get a nice CM who will stop and ask if you want a ride....but it is very rare (don't know if it is an insurance thing or what?).

When we stayed two years ago there was a sign somewhere mentioning that the carts were for convention guests. They sorta had a little bus stop set up so i figured they weren't for the regular vacationing people. Yes one night one came very close to us on the path - they were going quite fast.

We rode on one of the carts but it was when we called bell services to help us with our bags on check out day. Maybe they can't carry you on the cart unless you call to request help? I agree that they do drive them really fast!

We arrive TODAY!!! (not excited or anything!) Have been watching the radar--not looking great for the weekend. We've encountered a few afternoon scattered showers on past trips. Our arrival day last year was an absolute downpour (so much for swimming our first evening ) Looks about the same for today. Hoping we can get some good weather this week.

If you have luggage and need a ride, all you have to do is call bell services and they will pick you up. That's what the elderly couple did. I use them all the time. And like the PP, I've had nice CM's offer a ride when they are empty.

I am hoping for no rain and lots of sunshine. Have a magical time.

Arriving one month from today!

We've probably stayed a dozen times at CSR and can't wait to go "home." we're traveling with friends that have stayed at CSR but never been to the parks (crazy, right?) so it should be a blast showing them around. Will be a quick trip- I'm kinda Disney-ed out from living in Orlando the last few years. Hoping to spend a lot of time by a quiet pool and maybe fireworks a night or two.

Does anyone know if the arcade has Donkey Kong and/or Ms. Pacman?? Need something to amuse DH while DB and I enjoy the pool on our rest day.

We've missed you around here; glad you are going "home" (I can't wait to be there in December).

I haven't been to the arcade in years so I can't help. Hopefully, someone else will chime in who has been recently.

We are debating staying here or CBR. Going back to read all the information so I can hopefully make up my mind.

Csr king preferred question

Hi all! I have a question. My wife and I are going to CSR this week and have a King Preferred Room. Has anyone stayed in these rooms before? If so what is in the room and where is it located. We just paid the extra amount to move to this room and we want to know if it is worth it. Also if u have a picture that would be nice! Thanks !

I seem to remember that the breakfast buffet was $14.95 plus tax and gratuity...we were on QSDP and the buffet is a good value...

I remember reading that a wheelchair lift was installed for the digsite pool. Does anyone happen to have a photo of where it was installed?

Thanks!

A King preferred will be in either Casitas 1, 2 or 3. The rooms are the same as all the others, just a king bed rather than two queen beds, the desk with chair, etc.
