Yogurt

Does anyone know if Panchitos sells yogurt? I know there's yogurt at the PM buffet, but I'm looking for the 4oz cups. The kids love their yogurt. . Thanks.

Here now, so I checked this morning. None in Panchito's, but they do have 4 oz. cups in Rix (the grab-n-go) in the same case as the milk. It's $1.99 or one snack credit.

Tinka-belle... Thank you so much for looking! Do you happen to remember what brand/flavor? Wow, expensive, huh!?! I'm trying to figure out if I can get away with a small order of diapers and water from Turner Drugs, or if I would be better off placing an order with GG or WeGoShop.

Thanks again!
Hope you're having a great vacation!

Just back - Quick review

Thought I'd share my thoughts as this thread was very helpful to me. We checked in last Saturday around noon for a week. Did not do online check in. The line at registration was looong. There was concern at that point about Hurricane Issac so some people may have been trying to change their dates, etc. We paid for a preferred room, and were given a room in Casitas Bldg 2, 1st Fl. This sounded ok to me, but once we finally found it, I was dissapointed. It was as far out to the parking lot as you could be (#2175 I think). A hike to El Centro and the Dig Site. We hit the pool anyway and the kids loved it. We ordered nachos at Siestas and they were not very good...the original frozen margarita was though . Over the weekend we were busy with the parks, but Monday morning I decided to see if another room might be available. Kevin at the registration desk was happy to help and he got us a room in bldg 3, lagoon view. He was so helpful and I felt much better having paid the extra $$ for preferred. Kevin explained that "preferred" is really about being close to the convention center. The folks from bell service helped us move and were great.

We did the Pepper Market buffet once for lunch while waiting for a thunderstorm to pass. The food was good, but the set up is confusing, ex: for tacos, you could set them up yourself at the buffet with the tortilla and beef, but you have to go to another area, which was not marked, to ask for the toppings (cheese, lettuce, sour cream etc) and can only get them if the "chef" happens to be there, and he often wasn't. I was more impressed with the PM when we were at CSR a few years ago. The dessert/bakery items were forgettable. Cafe Rix was a zoo every morning but the bakery items were better there and I felt they had a good selection of quick foods. The coffee is typical Disney coffee (terrible), such a shame (on Disney, not CRS).

We had a really hot week, especially at the end, so all the walking required to get anywhere at CSR was a bummer (it didn;t bother us as much last time we were there in April, so I think the heat had a lot to do with it, and we are fairly fit). CRS is beautiful, and we encountered many nice CMs throughout our stay. The Dig site is great for kids, ours loved it - some days preferred it to the parks! Panchitos is a great resort store. It was our 2nd stay there and I think we are ready to try something new, but CSR will always have a special place in our hearts.

Also wanted to mention that our rooms were in great shape, and always clean. A few times we left a tip and it wasn't even taken? The bell service and rac guys are happy to take one though

Coronado Springs Mattress

I stayed at the Coronado Springs back in May of this year and can't remember when I had a better nights sleep. I don't know if it's because of all the running around and I was so exhausted I fell right asleep or if it was the mattress being so comfortable. Can anyone tell me what mattress they use? Thank you so much!

Coffee question. So they have the pod machines, how much coffee do they give you? I would likely make a cup in the morning for both Dh and I. I was wondering if I should buy a box and bring it with us in case we want some extras, or is this something mousekeeping would leave extra of? We'll have mugs but neither of us is into nescafe...

Anyone else going to be at CSR during Christmas? I'm just wondering as this will be our first time at WDW during the holidays and we're pretty excited. Just wanted to know how busy it is at CSR that time of year (I'm preparing for it to be extremely busy). Also, do the do anything special at CSR for the holidays beyond the decorations?
