I added the My Disney Experience app to my iPhone and iPad last night. If you look up CSR, they say there is bikes available at La Marina. Can anyone verify this?
Thanks

This is an important detail for us. To those of you who have been are there double sinks or just a single. Thanks for the info.
Single sinks, but a lot of counter space. There is plenty of room for two people to stand next to each other and get ready, even though there is only one sink.

The waterports have recently returned to the marina (maybe for a limited time), but I haven't heard of the bikes returning.

I'm excited and nervous about staying at CSR. I've been doing reading tonight after I got off work to try and learn more about the resort. It wasn't our first pick and to be honest I know nothing about it. We wanted POR but we were told that CSR was the only moderate that had military discount rooms still available. WOW! They went fast. All they had available that were military discounted rooms also happened to be Preferred or Waterview. We chose waterview. She then asked did we prefer a view of the lake or a pool. We chose pool. I do know there are no rooms with a waterview of the main pool. Just hope we don't end up having a long walk to a bus stop. I don't mind the walking but my DD at the end of the day is now too heavy to carry. We stayed at SOG last year and it is very nice but I missed the Disney theme and the customer service. My DH asked did I want to change my mind and stay at SOG again but I'm sticking with CSR and have my fingers crossed. In my reading I've read some great stuff and a little bad which is true of any resort. I'll be sticking to this thread so I can learn more. Thanks for all the info I've seen already.

I read they had them also, but no one has been able to confirm.

If I were you, I'd request building 4 in the Casitas. There are rooms that overlook that quiet pool or there are rooms that overlook the lake. It will put you nearly half way between the main theme pool and El Centro, and near the Casitas bus stop.

Yes, they do. We had connecting rooms with my cousin and her son last year. I'd requested Cabanas, and our rooms were in Ranchos, but they were pool-side (and we'd only paid for Standard view). It turned out to be a great location.

do you know if the connecting rooms are in the rancheros only?

As long as i'm somewhat near a mug refill location and bus stop I'll be happy.

Bus or drive?

So, I'm trying to iron out all my last details for our September trip and have a new question. We will have a rental car while we're at WDW, so is it better to drive or take the bus to the parks? We've always used the bus, so that is our fail safe. But before I spend any time looking at maps and finding directions, I'd love to hear the opinions of those more experienced with driving in WDW. TIA!

These are the areas we're planning on visiting:

MK (MNSSHP)
DTD
TL or BB
DHS then hopping to EP
Breakfast at GF
