Anyone's guess... No info on MagicBands in November.

Agree and I've not heard anything in regard to that. I did hear it might be the last resort because of it being a business/conference center. But nothing official.

Wasn't CSR part of some testing back in June or July? I thought I read that somewhere on the board. If they were, that should mean that they are already set up with the new readers right? What about the room doors? Does anyone know if they are set up for entry with a MagicBand?

Yes, CSR already had MB testing back in June. They are setup for it when it goes live.

See not an expert. Infact back in June I was not planning CSR so I would not have been paying attention to the MB.

I"m not letting MB stress me in either direction because I never had a problem with the credit card kind of resort passes so I'm ok either way. I don't "see" and advantage to how my vacation will go either way.

For those that want them a lot!!! , I hope you get pixie dust.

Was the testing they did at CSR back in June only for CMs? I know they started with CM testing before moving it on to resort guests...

The only advantage I see right now is the fact that you can book FP+ reservations AND use paper fast passes during the testing stage. I couldn't care less about the band, but would like to take advantage of fast pass "double dipping" while we can. Being able to book FP+ ahead of time will allow us to sleep in some mornings too, which would be great!

I've not read the entire thread, sorry I'm sure my questions are answered somewhere here

1. Are the RapidFill mugs at CSR yet? I really, really want a purple one, I have plenty of pink already.

2.Have stayed there for the past 2 years and I can't seem to remember this...do they have iphone clock radios/docking stations? I have a white noise app that would be great to play through a speaker. We are so use to sleeping with a fan for the noise.

Less than 2 weeks and we will be there, so excited

First Time at CSR

Hi Everyone!

My DH and I will be staying here the last week of this month. I just booked it in order to use our Military Salute tickets before they expire. We usually stay at WL, but needed to find something a bit more economical for this trip. We used the Military Salute room discount and got a good rate. Being a "research queen," especially when it comes to Disney, I immediately starting reading up on the resort. I've made it through about half of this thread, read Buzz's site, looked at pictures everywhere, and I must say, I am psyched about staying here!

My question is about location, of course. I'd like to be close to the Dig Site and a bus stop, moreso than the main building. We'll probably only eat at the resort a couple of times and the walk will be good for us! The Casitas look beautiful, but the other "villages" seem closer to the main pool. My DH loves westerns and fancies himself a cowboy (even though he has ridden a horse exactly once in his life), so I think he would like the Ranchos - I think they're pretty, too. The Cabanas are probably least appealing to us (sorry, know those are popular!), but the location seems good and I know DH would love the hammocks there. Decisions, decisions!!

I'm thinking 7B or maybe 6A in Ranchos, or 8A in Cabanas, as they seem to be reasonably close to both the pool and a bus stop. Thoughts? Suggestions? TIA!

I don't really care about the Magic Bands themselves, but would like to try the FP+ when we are there in December. But I agree, not a big deal either way.

My understanding was that they were picking 50 guests a day to try it out based on check-in day.

Far as I know there is no problem with kids in the lounge. As long as they don't behave like wild animals!
