I cannot seem to find an answer to this question ... yet. So I will ask now.
Do they have hot tubs at the QUIET pools? I know there is one at the Dig Site, but what about at the quiet pools?

What if I want to swim at my closest quiet pool at midnight? Will I be told to leave?

The only hot tub is by the main pool. We've had different experiences on different occasions at CSR as far as the quiet pools. There have been signs that they close at 9 p.m. due to the proximity to the rooms; and, then again, my husband was told he could stay as long as he was quiet.

We love the Cabanas. Hope to stay in building 8A Again. It was so quiet and near the pool and bus stop as a previous poster stated.

Updated info from Buzz (I edited my earlier post):

The quiet pools are open 7 until midnight. They are located near rooms, so it is possible someone might call to complain if you are noisy late at night, but you should be able to swim until midnight.

and the dig site? is it possible to swim after it is "closed"? or does the closing time only mean, that no life-guard is on duty?

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".

First time at CSR

For our January 23-30 2013 vacation, we'll be staying at CSR for the very first time, based on all the great information I've found here!

Thank you, one and all!

Anyone else going around this time?

After hearing that the surf pool at ASSp will be closed next month I'm VERY happy I had upgraded now since I had originally paid preferred and asked for poolside.

Just speculation, but as long as you're not too noisy and obnoxious (and sometimes not even that) I think they let you be. I know I'm an early swimmer and have been left alone in the past.

Thanks sooo much everyone for all the info! I just love to go swimming, and think it would be great to go later just to go for a quick dip!

We will be staying at CSR by default (couldn't get either of our favs, POFQ or POR). We've never stayed at CSR, and only been there once and that was to the gift shop many years ago. It will just be DH and I the last week of October and free dining. The CM suggested the Casita section. Since I have no idea at all about the location of the buildings, I wonder if there is a specific building I should request. She suggested Casita because I told her my DH will not want to do a lot of walking at the end of the day. She said the Casitas are located closest to the food court and main lobby. Any building suggestions for us? TIA. I might add that I looked at the photos at the beginning of this thread and I'm not as disappointed now as I was (about not getting POR or POFQ).

Casitas or Cabanas is good. Rather than requesting a certain building, you can request "close to El Centro" is that is where you'd like to be.

I'm a big fan of POR (I consider that to be our "home" resort) and POFQ. CSR is really not more spread out that POR, but the set-up is different with the central lake in that you can see the whole resort from one place unlike at POR where you may take meandering paths from far flung areas of AB.

This will be our 2nd stay at CSR, also by default as I requested POR or POFQ, but we're not disappointed at all about getting CSR. It's a lovely resort and we do like it a lot! The atmosphere is very relaxing, and my dd thinks it has the best pool slide.

The biggest 3 things I miss about "home" is the boat to DTD, Bob Jackson's show and being able to walk to it, and the fact that there are hooks on the wall in the other rooms and for whatever reason CSR does not provide hooks.

Favorite things about CSR are the lovely atmosphere (I think it's the most "deluxe" moderate), Pepper Market is a great deal on the DDP, the pool slide, and the sliding door to the bathroom area is nice. You can also get your mugs refilled at the pool bar, though I think the pool bar is not open in the evenings. I really like the bus service at CSR in that the buses ALWAYS stop at the stops in the same order, so you can hop on any park bus to get to El Centro. The bus stop order at POR is random. I like the organized bus service at CSR! I think you'll enjoy your stay, and it is fun to try something new. Perhaps you'll have a new favorite resort.
