Usually we get bottled water to take back to our room and just refill mugs. Milk is not a re-fill able mug option, but you can order it at PM.
Then that is no different than any other food court at WDW. We have done the same thing at CBR, POFQ and POR.

This statement just made it sound like juice and milk WAS available in the mugs, at least to me. No biggie as we are completely used to it not being available. DD only drinks water and milk so a mug has always been wasted on her other than a souvenir.

Boardwalk is 5 mins away. It was a quick $6 cab ride last time for us. You will have to park your car so add a few mins for that. DTD will take longer and depending how far out you have to park could add lots of walking time so allow yourself lots of time for that one.

Any guesses on when CSR will start magic bands? It sounds like the Fall test will actually be a soft start for them rolling out. I was thinking CSR being a convention center, they would want to help the guests here for a convention be able to head out to a park after their meetings, and Fasspass+ scheduling would help get to go on rides later in the day.
So maybe sooner than later on the list?

No one knows for sure when the MagicBands will be available for CSR. Seems as though a few new resorts are being added every month. It would make sense for them to start testing before the large crowds of December. Sure hoping we will have them for our November trip!

Is hot chocolate a refillable mug choice?

Argh the suspense is killing me and we arrive on 9/21

I'm wondering if, once we check in, we were to purchase a set of MagicBands, can we transfer our info off of our issued KTTW card on to said MB's once we get there? I have everything that can be linked set up on MDE.

Oh wow, I sure hope not! I've never stayed at CSR before, but at all the other WDW resorts I've stayed at the hot chocolate has always been good. Maybe it just depends on how strong you like it to be. Personally, I love mixing it in with my morning coffee. Yum!

I'm new to the Disboards and just can't read enough! So much great info! I do have a question. We have a two night res at AoA room only for October 16 and 17 and then moving to Coronado Springs with a package the 18th through the 24th to take advantage of the free dining. So excited!! My question is, can we get our tickets on the 17th so we can get into a park? It seems I read that you could do that somewhere on here but my horrible TA is asking how I plan to get into a park on the 18th. I'm pretty frustrated with her so I really don't want to get into this issue with her. Next time I will just do all the reservations myself!

Yes you can. This is from a Sticky on the Theme Parks Board posted by a ticketing CM.

I. Picking up Package Tickets Prior To Start Of Package

In cases where Walt Disney World Resort Guests would like to begin using their Package Tickets prior to the day of check-in (up to three days in advance), the Guests will be directed to visit any Theme Park or DTD Guest Relations location and request Early Ticket Pick-Up. (Note this cannot be done at a water park.)

It is only valid for people with packages at a Walt Disney World owned and operated Resort. You can be staying off-property at the time you pick up the tickets. Note that if you have a package which includes Dining, although you can pick up your tickets early you cannot get access to the Dining until you have actually checked in to your Resort.

Note that since August 2011 the Call Centers have been telling Guests this cannot be done. However it is still a valid procedure and can be done with no problem at Park Guest Relations Windows.

There is a possibility that if your package and the stay prior to the package are at the same Resort that you will be able to get the tickets at the Resort and not have to go to a Park Guest Relations Office.

And the tickets issued will be valid for the entire stay; they will not receive valid tickets when they actually check-in to their resort. There is a strong possibility that the tickets you have received prior to check-in cannot be added to your KTTW on or after check-in.

I would suggest you copy down the following information if you are planning to upgrade promotional tickets. If the person in the window is hesitant to upgrade these promotional tickets, ask them go go into The Hub >> WDW >> Work >> Ticketing >> Processes & Business Rules >> Early Ticket Pickup For Resort Packages where they will see the procedure.



Here is the full thread.

I'm wondering if she only ordered you enough days of tickets to get in the park during your CSR stay. If that is why she asked you about the two days prior.
If that's the case, then you might have to find out about adding a couple days. OR depending on your flights, take a couple days to consider time at CSR (looks like so much to do), going to Down Town disney, and going to the Board walk. Don't forget Mini golf and Splitsville.

The way our flights go, our last day we don't have time to leave the resort so I don't have tickets for that day. There is another day that I don't have much park plans, but for the little money that extra day costs, I decided not to cancel that day of ticket.

Hope you find all the information you are needing.
I've got great help and information from this board. The tricky part is just knowing which thread to read and how to keep up with the replies to threads. I'm still learning.
