It's not just CSR, all resorts are affected. There are a couple of lengthy threads on this.

The way the hallways jog around it was confusing. At first we walked from 25 towards 00/20 and elevators. We went down stairs and around building past first few groups. Then i think it was in 10/11 on first floor. Anybody else remember?

When we left lounge we followed building to end (57)then follwed path to bus stop one. The lounge faced main lake. Our side/ faced small lake on back.

I am directionally impaired so sorry if off by a little but that should be close.

Also the red triangles are where the staircases are.

**** remember to look at is as if you in a mirror. The image was reversed when downloaded***

Forgive me if this has been answered. I have been reading posts from this thread for a while now. In the original post it gives the order that the buses pick up. It also says something about DTD and exit buses. What does it mean by "exit buses"? Also, if you get on at stop #1 at El Centro and it is the last stop, is it likely to be full by the time it stops at #1? (assuming buses pick up in order of 2, 3, 4, then 1 as stated). Thanks a bunch!!

They didn't say. It is resort wide. We did end up getting one late last night, but it wasn't guaranteed.

Just got back from a weekend stay at CSR business class. There were several changes that have occured just since our last weekend getaway six weeks ago.

Cafe Rix. Menu has changed completely. No more pastrami sandwiches or pizza. Nothing is served with french fries any more. Only chips.

Business Class Lounge. No muffins for breakfast anymore, only dry little cinnamon roll things. They do still have bagels, fresh fruit, juice, milk etc. No more white sangria's (wife was really ticked over that one). The red just wasn't as good and had no fruit in it.

We did have a fridge in our room but it was not in the dresser. It was between the dresser and the desk just sitting on the floor. There was still a fridge in the dresser but had a big note on it saying to not plug it in and why though.

The changes aren't huge but, after 4 straight stays here I think we are gonna try some other mods.

We always just ask for standard and then just request the section we want. We aren't in our room long enough throughout our stay to really care about the view so we've never asked for anything specific.

Yeah I don't really care about view either I just like the ranchos section becuase it"s close the main pool
Have you found they are good with honouring requests for what section you want to be in?

I see that two conventions will be there the time I'm thinking of going
Learning 2013 and home based travel agents
Has anyone had an experiance with these groups do they majorly impact the resort pool wise or should I be fine

I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but if I book a standard business class room, then do we get access to Conconino Cove? I see that they are all in 9b - is that close to the main building and/or Dig Site?

Okay, never mind - I believe I found d my answer

The bulk of them are in the sandy area surrounding the lagoon in the Cabanas area. There are a couple in the Casitas area, but most in Cabanas.

We have the business class booked for October and your post makes me a little nervous. I love the sangria at the Poly and was looking forward to the sangria at CSR. Was there still a pitcher of red that you could pour? Were there other offerings? We just got back from DL and didn't like that we had to ask for each glass of wine and each beer we wanted (they did very small pours...not that I drink a lot but if I wanted to pour my own, it was not allowed).

Any other changes that we should know about? I am bummed about the muffins and the white sangria and just want to be prepared.

Still considering changing to the BW concierge room but not sure....

I still think Business Class is a good value. You do have to ask for every alcoholic drink, no pitchers. They have a red wine, a white wine, Bud Light, Heiniken and Yuengling in the bottles. They will give you the whole bottle. Our kids are the ones who loved the muffins, they just had to switch to cereal and fruit for breakfast. Probably better for them anyway. Night time snack options were still the same. Tortilla and regular chips, plenty of fresh vegetables, sundried tomato hummus and such. When staying at CSR we would probably always choose Business Class for the lounge and the buildings location because it is so close to everything.

Most of the CSR "regulars" have always discussed that it would be great to have an option to pay alittle extra to guarantee the Cabanas 9B location. It was the most requested location and it close to everything important at CSR except for the Fitness Center which is about 5-7 min walk depending on your walking speed. The fact that there is a Club level type lounge is really just a bonus. I'm hoping the missing items was a temporary thing, but it won't change my mind on Business Class either way.
