I don't remember if Cafe Rix has a microwave or not, but you can request one for your
room when you check in. I've only needed one once, and it was delivered to our room same day! Came in handy for my friend & her 9 year old grand daughter who like to have oatmeal every morning for breakfast.

CS restaurants have microwaves and toasters for your use. It should be in one of them; by description, I would think Cafe Rix.

I always hang signs on our door at POR-FQ. It helps me find our room easily when I am really tired. I'll be there 10/8 - 10/13 with signs on my door. I never thought about hanging them in the window. Might try that too.

Will be putting something up for Christmas. Much easier to find our room at night.

I make signs for our window. I use Disney scrapbook paper and cut them to
an 8 1/2 x 11 size. Print out each person's first name in Disney font and add
those to the sign. Then back the paper with sturdy cardboard, so I can just
set them on the window ledge & not have to hang them. Works great! We
always seem to have a little trouble finding our room the first day or so.

Club Level Rooms

I read through this thread about Club Level rooms and I was just able to book a room for Jan. 2013. I'm not sure what is involved as the cast member said it was a "new" offering and didn't have any details yet. It was only 60.00 total more than a water view for 5 nights. I'm hoping it will be close to the main building. Has there been any other speculation or information on club level at Coronado that I may have missed?

I'm a little confused about the Pepper Market. If I am on the dining plan and go there for breakfast, it will count as a counter service credit, correct? So do I have to leave a tip for the waitress also, even though its buffet? I thought I read somewhere that they automatically add 10% gratuity to your bill? So if I am on the dining plan, do I pay this as a leave on the table tip for waitress? Thanks for any help you can provide. I am just trying to budget everything out right.

Historically, club level at CSR has been in cabana 9B. It has previously been offered as part of a convention, but there was a trial earlier this year for non-covention guests. It will be great if it is now a bookable category!

All meals at PM are quick service meals. Breakfast and lunch are buffets. You are not charged a 10% fee at breakfast or lunch, and you should tip your server as you would at any buffet. The amount of the tip is up to you.

Dinner at PM is a la carte. There is a 10% fee charged at dinner, but it has been reported that the service charge is not added for people on the DDP (we always pay out of pocket, so I can't say from experience).

I saw some info about club level on another website, I'll PM you the link. I'm going to be stalking club level info, we booked a junior suite for marathon weekend and having club level included would make the price sting a little less!

is the "testing-period" already over or will there be a small chance to take part of the club-level-test next month?

Remember they only have a few of those microwaves though. I've asked for one three different trips and never did get one. I asked at the front desk and was told to call housekeeping which I did. They said they were all already loaned out.
