Wonderful news!

Hypothetically speaking, you could take one bus to one of the parks, then another to POFQ, then the boat to DTD. But I doubt you'd want to do that!

So basically, if I leave now, I may make it to our appointment on time?

you laugh but I had considered doing that for the night fun of it.
I just have to make sure that the park transportation doesn't close on me before I get back to PoFQ. But I guess to go back I could just get on my resort bus. hmmmmm
That is different than a breakfast ADR I guess.

Does CSR have wifi now? Are there good connections in the rooms? I read that some resorts didn't have good connections. I know the kids will want to play on their ipods and I don't really want them using all my data

Just back from a short 2-nt stay at CSR Business Class (after a 4-nt stay at BWI CL). We loved it!

This was my 3rd trip to CSR, and after having been in Casitas & Ranchos, the $$ for Business Class was worth it alone for the location. We were on the back side of 9B, which is probably the least desirable location in Cabana 9B, and we were still only 1-2 min. walk from the lounge, the main bus stop (#1 El Centro) and the quiet pool & laundry in front of Cabana 9A. The main pool was about a 3-minute walk.

The lounge staff was very friendly & the food was great. We missed the afternoon drinks & snacks like at a Deluxe resort CL but the other times they were open, the lounge was great. The fruit at breakfast was far better than any CL we've stayed in.

Staff overall at CSR was wonderful. The Dig Site was crowded but it was HOT HOT HOT every day. My sons enjoyed the pool games & ping pong table.

Now I'm spoiled & will not ever want to stay at CSR without staying in Business Class!

Someone just asked about wifi - it was spotty at best - but had been that way earlier in the week at BWI too. Our 1st night we had no connection in the room at all, the next day it was hit or miss.

Thanks for the update. Will be staying in business class in October and have been debating whether or not it was worth the cost.

Sorry to hear about your wifi issues. We were in Casitas 1 in December and had no problems at all.

I'm not a CSR expert but I believe that type room is in all the buildings.

That is exactly what our business class room looked like. Could very well be what other rooms look like as well. Lol

Yeah, looks like a standard room. Hard to tell the dimensions though.
