Are you allowed to bring your own alchohol to the pool areas? I would assume no glass, like most places. But since my husband and I are driving, we could easily *and for a better price* bring our own beer/wine from home.

Yes, you can bring your own drinks as long as you don't use glass bottles.

I drank beer in cans by the quiet pool all the time last trip with no problems. FYI they now sell 6-packs at Ranchitos for only $15. Used to be $35 a couple of years ago. I know you Americans are used to paying alot less, but here in western Canada a case of beer is $25, so I have no problem paying that price buying at a resort.

I would be shipping something through the USPS, so that's good to know.

Do you know where we could ship something from WDW to home? We're going on a cruise after our stay and would like to ship our costumes from MNSSHP and purchases back to MD. Thanks!

That is what I'm trying to do is budget for tips. All our TS meals are at the park or DTD. So I need to make sure I have enough for tips. We will proably eat at the pepper market maybe once a day.

Sure am From a small town on the south shore. I did the drive also in 2007. I loved it. My husband has never been so he is even more excited!! Can't wait for my first stay on site though.

Yeah, the government here heavily taxes alcohol and tobacco. I don't smoke, but I believe the going rate for a pack of smokes here is about $11. $35 is crazy for a 6-pack anywhere, so I was quite pleased to see CSR lower the price to $15.

Such great info on CSR in this thread! I'm impatiently waiting to book our 2nd trip to WDW, as soon as the 2013-2014 school calendar is released. We're going to go over fall break in October.

Our 1st trip was this past February. We can't wait to come back! We stayed at POFQ; it was such a pretty, compact resort. However, when I was planning that trip, my initial reaction was wanting to stay at Coronado. After reading about the size of it, I got a little scared with it being our first trip, and opted for POFQ instead. Now that we've got that one experience in with parks, buses, ADRs, etc, I'm ready to try CSR.

I'm hoping for Cabanas area, knowing this is only a request. Close to a bus stop is very important to us, as well as the Dig Site. I think 8A looks perfect, even 9B looks right between the pool/main building and close to a bus stop. How does the early ADR morning buses work? Will those still stop at all 4 stops?

Also, if we were feeling lazy, we could grab any park bus (no matter which area) and get off at the main building stop to get to PM, correct? And then, after the parks, if we got off at the main stop to fill our mugs, we could grab a DTD bus to get back to our room stop. Is that right? I think I've confused myself.

Water View Room Description

All rooms have 2 queen-size beds, hardwood furniture, desk and chair, vanity area with sink, a ceiling fan and a bathroom. All rooms are non-smoking. Amenities include flat-panel TV, in-room wall safe, voice mail, complimentary wi-fi, hairdryer, iron, ironing board, mini-fridge and coffee maker. A crib is available upon request. Wheelchair-accessible rooms are available. These rooms offer views of the pool or lake.

I copy and pasted the above water view description for CSR from Disney's reservation system. It does not include fountains in the description of water view, only pool or lake. Just wondering if anyone was told different upon check in. We arrive this Friday and have a waterview room booked. Just curious. Thanks!

I had no problem bringing wine in a can to the pool area on my trip.... I just had a lot of people ask me what it was out of curiosity...

Although the daiquiris there can not be beat

I believe that the lion fountain between casita 2 and 3 and others are considered waterview.

TIA!
There are written amounts that the business center will charge you for deliveries but there are times when they do not bother to assess those charges.

That has been my experience. Not that I'm complaining. . In any case, I think once I was charged $10, but the box was really heavy. This is one of those cases where I'm not unhappy about the charge if it is a convenience for me. For me, I'll gladly pay $10 if it a question of keeping me sane. :lol:

That was why I was originally chuckling but I wouldn't rule out anything when it comes to Disney. The Poly has 1-2 rooms that under extreme circumstances can be used as "lagoon view" but rarely does so according to Tikimon.
