TIA!
We have had Garden Grocer deliver orders both times we have stayed at CSR and there was no charge for them storing it at Bell services until we arrived.

I've already had questions and talked to Amy (the owner) and she was really nice.

Everything is ready and we are all really excited!

So one last (or maybe not ) question for CSR experts...We are taking some professional family photos (my sister-in-law is a photographer) and wondered what you suggested as a back drop. And if you think one area has a more 'Asian' theme to it. I know, it's a Mexican-themed hotel but we will all be dressing up in yukatas/jimbeis and dining at Teppen Edo with my Japanese brother. We will get lots of pictures at the Japan pavillion, but we suspect we'll have an easier time taking some at CSR where it won't be as and before our make up has melted Or I've thrown off the yukata because I'm not sure how silly we will all look. But if I do that, my brother is going to be I'll let you know how THAT goes!
The courtyard fountains in the Casitas area are beautiful and would make a great backdrop for your pictures.

I think Costco ships the water UPS so there could be a charge assessed.

So happy to hear it.
I know, I know! I am also VERY HAPPY to be going back. We are so excited, its our last family trip before ds heads to the USMC. The last time we stayed there, he was 11!

Trying to decide if I want to ask for a section or just go with what I get. Last time we got Ranchos and we enjoyed that very much.

Dh and I were just saying tonight we have no idea why we haven't been back, we absolutely loved our stay there. Just so many resorts and so little time I guess!

Any Maya Grill reviews? We ended up booking our arrival night dinner there. I figure we'll check in bright and early, head to MK, come back in the afternoon to unpack, eat at Maya Grill then head back to MK for the evening. I saw the updated menu and it sounds quite good!

We ate there twice last year and enjoyed it, the best part was the rita sampler... I was on a fajita bender and their fajitas were pretty tasty (beef with green onion??)

They were generous and gave us extra black beans for my daughter's dinner. Don't remember what DH ordered but I know that he really liked it. One night there was live music (guitar...maybe singing??? remember the ritas were a big hit)

Hows the CSR Kiddie Pool for an 18mos old boy?

I wish it was a zero entry pool....but oh well....

So how would you rate it for an 18 month old? Too deep? Is it set far apart from the other pools/slides? I have a 5 year old too and dont want to miss out on him having fun too!!

Do the courtyard fountains count as "water view?"

Does anyone know what time in the am is the earliest they will let you check in. We are thinking of driving all night and getting in early in the morning of our check in day, then napping. I realize actual check in isn't until 3 or so but we have arrived at 8am before and been able to get a room if one was available. What if we arrived at say 4 or 5 am? Just wondering.

We have checked in at Disney resorts as early as 7-8am. Sometimes the room is ready, sometimes we've had to wait. I really think it just depends on if someone stayed in the room your getting the night before or if it's already ready.

Even though I know this is so, I always crack up laughing at this fact. Talk about your broad definition of "body" of water.
