I think they meant that on your check out day they allow people to 'cash in' their CS meals for snacks, and they were wondering if they could do that throughout their stay as well.

Not necessarily when things expire.

Just thinking of breakfasts and wondering if we might be able to get something like cereal, milk and fruit cup the night before to have in our room to make the morning not so rushed. Do they allow you to make a "continental breakfast" using your counter service credits? TIA
It would depend on the CM. Some let you do it, some stick pretty much to the rules. I would not expect them to do it consistently each day.

What she was asking if she could exchange her CS daily for a couple of snacks, rather than getting an entree, not just on the day you leave.

We just got back from POR on Oct. 28th - we were able to use a CS credit for a bagel/muffin, drink, and piece of fruit. A couple of times we brought it back to the room for breakfast.

We just returned last night from our stay at Riverside from 10/25 to 11/5. Let me just say I have been looking forward to Riverside forever.

Honestly I will say I prefer Sports over Riverside. My husband felt the same way. There was more people at the counters in Sports then in Riverside to help and assist people, and they were definitely friendlier.

We tried to attend and stay to watch Bob one night; I just could not stomach some of the people. Bob was great though.. I stayed for 2 songs and then I just could not take the rude and abrupt people.

Buses are a hit and miss I will agree. Some-days we just took a taxi.

I will say Boatwrights has amazing food and I do not know how anyone complains about it. We had a great server and he was extremely attentive to our son. We gave him a 35% tip on our 175.00 bill which of course most was DDP anyway.

Front Desk did say they never received my fax or any CM notes on my reservations which I personally know were on there.

Acadia building is where we were. I could hear the kids running on the walkway above me and when someone flushed the toilet in the surrounding rooms it echoed thru our room.

Mousekeeping was fine, no issues no complaints there. And yes we did see snakes outside our room. Rule is on Disney property they can not be killed.

Boat rentals were good.

Just glad we left yesterday.. lots of kids coming in now.

I imagine it is the best resort to some so take my words with a grain of salt, but just not my cup of tea.

I have no issue with kids if your comment was towards me. I have an issue with kids with whom the parents are not watching them and they are running around at 11pm at night screaming unsupervised and when a CM says something they told the CM to shut up because that is not their mom or dad. We had a wonderful retired couple in the next room who they had pushed and moved out of the way slamming the poor man into the bushes. I tolerate kids fine TY. I just don't tolerate disrespectful kids

I can agree with this. But if I did see something like that it would not end with me seeing it.

I agree with Venom.... I would definitely have to say something (to the parents) if that happened in front of me.

I too, have very little patience for unsupervised and disrepectful children.

I have to say though, I have encountered WAY more children (rowdy ones) at Value resorts than at the Mods. I always attributed that to the fact that there are simply more children at the values (because of the theming), and with a larger ratio of children the more likely you are to run across unruly ones.

I am going to head by POR this afternoon and take a look around. It isn't usually that bad there with unsupervised kids.
