CSR is my 19 year old's favorite resort. My youngest is 9. He goes with the flow, but the jaguar slide is his favorite water slide.
That's cool to hear honestly. Mine will be 14 he is a big basketball player and never went fishing ever. It was walking by the fishing hole at POR that he was curious. So we all stopped by on our resort day & he sat there for hours!!!!! The man who worked showed him the ropes & I just let him hang out there and charge up the hours to the room. Every day after he would ask to go. Finally on checkout I let him spend the morning. He really was into it. His twin and younger brother (also 9) wasn't as into it.

My boys were huge fans of POR for the foodcourt and the marina activities.... Thanks a million!!!!
Yeah I was big time POR and I still follow the and aide the resort guests as much as possible. I personally haven't stayed at CSR but in fact we are to do another Moderate that is going to be CSR but I don't know if before your dates or not. I did like the Marina and Activities at POR but honestly each resort has unique and similar activities so it may give your children something new to do. As for the resort we have plans for the Business Rooms there. They are kind of like Club Level at the Deluxes but for Moderates. They are also close to the main building which I like the most. CSR is spread out more than POR is. But your have a nice atmosphere to look at. How ever if you are not staying in a Preferred or Business room then you will be on the other side of the water from the main building, but close to the Feature pool. Also something this resort has also is an internal bus and then bus depots like POR's where it goes to all the stops like north, east, south and west. So take note to which stop you get on and off at if you want to be dropped off close to your room.

Has any one heard how many refrigerators were removed? I know that there were a number of different types so not all needed replaced.

Are there microwaves in the rooms? I'm not sure where in the resort we are going to stay in.

None of the Value or Mod resorts have microwaves in the room. Most of the Deluxe rooms don't have microwaves either unless its suite or villa. CSR does have a few microwaves on hand that you can request when you check in to see if one is available, but no guarantees.

You can request one, but they aren't guaranteed. We've got one each time we requested, but one time it took a day before one became available.

The "preferred" location only puts you close to the Food court. Depending which room you get it could be as close as 5 mins or as far as 10 mins. Business Class gets you a room that is 2 mins from the Dig Site and 2 mins from the Food Court.

Preferred are buildings 1,2, and 3. Counting backwards 3 is closest to dig site and one is furthest away. No matter how you look at it, 1,2,3 are the furthest away from the dig site. We are staying preferred next time for a convention. The quiet pool in the Casitas is rough too. It's very deep, great for lap swimming, not so great for little kids.

I just booked 2 standard rooms yesterday and had no problems....maybe the website was messed up I would try again. Oct 10-20 2014

The business class is over in the cabanas closest to El Centro. They are not very far from the Dig Site.
