Pool towels

Are there towels available at all the pools or do you just bring them from your room? (If this has been asked and answered a million, I apologize....I'm trying to find out for my daughter and hubby who are going to Disney for the first time on Sunday!!)

There are towels at the main pool and the quiet pool in the Casitas (because this is where the health club is located). The other quiet pools you take them from your room and call Housekeeping to bring you more towels for the room.

The Dig Site had towels available and you had to bring your own towels to the quiet pools.

Thanks!
We were just there last week and both the AK and Epcot buses stopped at BB. Once you leave the resort, it is very close to BB, not more than 10 minutes.

TL shares the DTD bus. Depending on the time of day and such, it might go to TL first or to DTD first (which actually has two stops). It is a much longer bus ride and one of the worst due to all the stops (and that goes for EVERY Disney resort, not just CSR!). Count on at least 30 minutes to get to TL. I timed it and it ranged from 24 minutes to 45 minutes for us last week.

Thanks! We will have a car, so I think we'll plan on driving...at least to TL and maybe BB.

Oh my word I hated that journey...on the way home from DTD Marketplace you stop at DTD PLeasure Island and then Typhoon Lagoon, it takes FOREVER!!!

If you have a car, definitely drive!

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".

Ahhh, it sounds like a long bus ride! We are eating at Rainforest Cafe DTD on Sunday for DD's birthday and we planned to take the bus. I was worried about parking - our dinner reservation is for 6:30. Should we just plan to drive to DTD instead?

DEFINITELY drive. We've gone to DTD on weeknights and weekend nights; you may have to circle a few times, but we always find a parking spot. It is so much better than the buses (unless you are staying at a resort that has the boat to DTD).

110% if you have a car drive to TL, BB, and DTD!!!!!!!! Parking is free at all of those places and you can always get a close (or relatively close) spot. Even at DTD at 6 pm. The buses to these three spots make numerous stops. And you have to wait for the bus to pick you up. So it is definitely quicker to drive to these places than take the Disney transportation. Of course, Disney transportation rules if all the drivers in your party would like to take part in some adult libations Then the wait and bus ride are worth it

Towels are available at the Dig Site, and the Casitas quiet pool. Not available at the Cabana quiet pool or the Ranchos quiet pool.

Drive to TL for sure. BB is literally right next to CSR. Its 3 mins on the bus after you leave CSR property. Its a very quick drive as well, but you might half to park 1/2 mile away from the entrance if its busy. I would just take the bus to BB if it was me.

I believe I saw a sign or notice limiting guests to 15 minutes in the hot tub. How "strict" is the resort in enforcing the 15 minute rule in the hot tub?
