I am getting so excited to be returning to our favorite resort in March! The kids are over the moon since pricing for AOA was just a little out of our price range. Need to read up to find out about the newest additions to CSR (preferred rooms, buffet style PM?, etc). All in all, we can't wait!

We check into CSR on Saturday! I'm so excited. My dd's know they have a surprise awaiting them on Saturday but they have no idea it's Disney! I'm not sure I am going to be able to sleep the next two days because I am so excited.

Hi All!! Hi Kathy I'm DISNEY obsessing again..thinking of a quick trip DH and I next month and on the AP site the only room class at CSR is Business Class. Anyone heard of this..sounds kinda like Club level, but I am not sure..We've never stayed CSR, I'm MODphobic since staying at CBR for cheer week...I am a chicken I know

I've booked this room for feb! It sounds like club level light. Specific room location with access to a lounge. My TA said just like CL (hot appetizers in evening) but reports on this thread said that's not the case. It's new- not open for booking until January visits. The appeal to me was confirmed building in cabanas and some free drinks.

Yes, kids are allowed. I think the idea behind this is to open it to GP when conferences haven't already booked it. They have Wii or Xbox or something so kids are welcome!

Checking in on Sunday with my DS (27). Really looking forward to trying a new resort! Will try to post some pics and reviews when we there or soon after we get back.

I'm sorry I didn't post updates like I wanted from our trip last week...we just never stopped.

The video of the "reveal" to my husband cannot be posted here because he said a naughty word in it.

But here is the second part of the surprise when our best friends showed up at the resort (Nicki is MickeyNicki here on the DIS and writes awesome dining reviews).

Hi all, I did a reconnaissance trip to CSR earlier this month. I actually spoke to a room assigner in person and cleared up my earlier confusion about preferred rooms and thought I'd share it here.

The information on DIS (from the first page of this thread:
Preferred rooms are located in Casitas 1, 2 and 3 (all near El Centro--registration, food, lounge and gift shop).

is better than the info I got from TWO different CMs when I called. Preferred gets you closer to the convention stuff, not the pool. Yet that is specifically what the CMs on reservation told me.

On another note, after visiting, I changed our reservation to POFQ. CSR is HUGE and my parents are in their 70's--my stepfather has mobility issues and will not accept a cane/ECV/wheelchair and I just couldn't see him negotiating the resort if we were assigned somewhere remote. He's already planning on doing minimal park time. One of our goals is family gathering in the pool and I could see him just staying in his room if we all wanted a swim in the dig and were far away.

That being said--it looks really neat and I hope we do stay at CSR in the future. When we were there, it was the beginning of Pop Warner and I have to say it was already looking awful--huge clumps of girls in matching outfits squealing/running/shouting/jumping around. I have a high tolerance for kids being kids (life-long educator) but on vacation. . . PW would not be a good thing in my resort.

It continues to amaze me how UNINFORMED the CM's are about the resorts.

I think you made a good decision with your stepdad's mobility issues. CSR will always be there. And I was there for Pop Warner--brutal.

You made an excellent choice. I was there all week during Pop Warner. My ears are still ringing.

Thanks to Tim and Kathy for re-assuring me that it wouldn't be that bad.

Yes, I have found that the CMs taking resort reservations know little about the resorts and many have not even been there. I had to argue with a CM one time b/c she insisted that POP had no lake and therefore I could not request a lakeview.

I've also booked that room for February. I'm so excited! I've only stayed at CL at WL, not sure how this will compare but I can't wait. I've only ever stayed at Coronado for one night before in 2008, so this resort is really new to me. We'll be there for 6 nights.
