It hasn't been open this week. It doesn't look as if it is used at all.

Anybody doing split stays with CSR as one of your resorts, take note. If you have Magic Bands/FP+ linked to a different resort, you will most-likely be able to use your MB at CSR!!

I checked in to CSR for 3-nights on Saturday, and the band has worked everywhere. You might need concierge help with FP+. Other than that, you should be good to go.

This is fantastic news!! We arrive on Tuesday and have MagicBands and were hoping they would work everywhere!

Yes, you can send a package to be there when you arrive. As far as I know, packages sent FedEx or UPS still incur a charge and can be picked up at the business center. Packages sent USPS do not have a charge, and I think they will be at the front desk.

I haven't ever shipped to CSR, so I hope someone will correct the info if it is outdated.

Thanks, i received the same answer from CSR.

But I have another question.

The shipping via USPS can not arrive before my arrival at the hotel?

And if I am already at the hotel, I need to be there to receive or the package is delivered to my room?

The resort is so quiet and parking lots so empty with the car show finished. We asked for a microwave at check in, and one was available. We've put it to good use. A While back someone had asked if the pm has a microwave. No, they do not. There is some construction going on, and all they have at the little table near the exit is Simply Heinz ketchup, mustard, mayo, sugar and artificial sweeteners, knife, forks and spoons, and napkins. To Go orders now pay at the bar in the front of the pm. The registers near the Rix Lounge is just for servers.

ETA: Cafe Rix has a microwave, I've been informed.

Can anyone tell me if CSR has implemented the Rapid Fill RFID Mug program yet? Perhaps not at Pepper Market yet but what of the other soda locations? Thanks in advance

So you can request a microwave? I didn't know this.

Yes. There is a limited number of them. It's first come first serve. You request it at check in.

I have started my "prepacking" lol. Anything I pick up at the store for the trip gets puts in the suitcase for now. That way I won't have to worry about misplacing before I do my official packing.

Doing the same thing. I am so known for buying something and putting it away and then not able to find it when I need it.

FYI I read on a thread someone buys at the Dollar store when of those foldable organizing bins (those cloth ones) to throw things in on the dresser so that when you go to leave it's right there instead of trying to find it in the room. I used one this weekend for our little get away. It's a great idea cause between my watch, keys, change and what not, things would have been everywhere. Hubby liked the idea. I have two ready for our vacation. I'm thinking of packing a plastic cup too so that our toothpaste and tooth brushes have a home also.
And another idea was one of those hanging shoe things with clear pockets. All go in the big check in suit case to be ready for November.

FYI there is a thread of "what to pack" that people list things that others might forget to pack and/or would come in handy. I got some great ideas from there.

HMMM what can I pack today.

74 days to go.

You're welcome. With my son's restricted diet, the microwave came in handy.

Checked out and heading home. DS9 said that's the part of vacation he doesn't like. I agree.
