The wife and I will be there (CSR) on Sept 9th thru the 15th. Hope it has slowed down some at the resort as far as conventions is concerned.

19 more days... yay!!!!

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

I have a practice question

Is there any washing machine and soap ?
I'll be there 11days and I hope I can wash the clothes of my children ( and mine also)

Tears of joy, right?
My youngest would not even let me walk him in the first day of kindergarten. He knew the schools and teachers better than anyone else since he was a "PTA kid".

Is someone trying to confuse us with a practice question when clearly they are already at the resort if you look at the dancing banana?

Hope you are having a marvelous time!!!

Okay, this resort looks so pretty. I was kinda turned away by it from reading reviews on TripAdvisor..which a lot of those are kinda lame anyway, "I traveled on 4th of July weekend and there was no parking, it was so crowded!" Not related to CSR but you know what I mean..

Who out there loves this resort?!?!

No I don't know what you mean.
I'm ignoring reviews and gonna make the decision for myself.
I was originally staying at POFQ and moved for free dining.
The CM commented "are you like most people and only there to sleep" in regard to a comment I made about the FD resorts being crowded vs us taking room only discount. When I originally looked at this resort in January when making reservations I wasn't interested, but the more I look at pictures and the more I read, I think it will be beautiful and just what we need.

I can't say I love the resort yet because I haven't been there, but I would be surprised if I didn't love any of the resorts. They are not home and they all have a magical something about them.
But I'm pretty convinced I'll have a magical time. I don't have to have everything and be in the "best of" to have a wonderful time.
It's all in the attitude and appreciating what is available.

Ok one thing I ask/hope for.....
If you are there and in my building, when you decide you want to get up at the crack of dawn to eat and be at rope drop, please remember when you walk by my room I might not have the same plans.

It's by far the best moderate, so much so I don't put it in a category with the others, it's more like a moderate +. In my opinion it's the best value on property. The Dig Site is amazing, and the fact that you can get food right next to the pool for lunch and dinner is fantastic. I love the fact that you don't share a bus with anyone, that is a huge plus for me. I had a terrible experience with the buses at the Port Orleans last year, I wished so badly we would have gone back to the CSR instead.

Yes, the resort is huge and spread out, which tends to be most people's complaints, but it never feels crowded, it's always quiet, and if you don't mind walking, (Hello! You are at Disney World!), it's really not an issue.

This is always my question, you are at Disney World, you are going to walk all over the parks but are concerned your room isn't right beside the lobby? I am always confused when I are that.

Me too! But then again I don't mind walking. I'm not in a rush I'm on vacation.

I am only concerned about how close I am to the lobby because I will be the one carrying breakfast for 5 every morning.
I am one who had to switch for FD. But the more I learn about the resort, the more I think we are going to enjoy it.

I don't get when people say CSR is huge and spread out - compared to what! I was preparing for the worst after booking 17 days there last year, thinking it may be too much for some of our group who don't have such good mobility but none of our party with ages from 30's to 60's thought the resort was that big

We really loved CSR and as Crostorfer says the resort never felt crowded, 98% of the time our buses to the parks were half empty and when we did eat on site there was always plenty of room in the Pepper Market. Can't wait to go come back and spend time at CSR
