I did not use the machine but the CMs can help you. They have Corona (with limes if you'd like), Bud Light, and Yuengling. They have a white and red wine plus red sangria that is pre-made since the hosts are not bartender trained!

As for the housekeeping..it seems like this is maybe an on-going issue and I will possibly write a letter concerning it. Even the day we saw the housekeeper in the hall and asked for our room to be cleaned we were left with just two bathroom towels and no toilet paper. The toilet paper we called about to get took 30 mins to come and then she took one of them away the next day..I should have hidden it!!! DF and I said of all the Disney resorts you always see mousekeeping out at as early as 8am and knocking on your door if you don't have the DND sign up. We didn't see hardly any housekeepers out in building 9 until the afternoon or the earliest was maybe 10:30am?! I was shocked that our room was ready at 7am when we checked in, obviously someone was not in it the night before!

No towel animals for us either and I tipped daily but I'm assuming whomever did it felt rushed as we had to call 3 out of the 4 housekeeping days plus one day of verbally telling the housekeeper we were leaving and the room was free to clean.

Thanks for the replies about beer selection and the latte/espresso machine.

Will let y'all know how housekeeping goes for us next week. I'm pretty quick to let housekeeping and or front desk if housekeeping is not doing a good job so if it is an issue I will try to get it addressed.

Are last stay at CSR was for 14 nights, we were in Casitas 4 and the housekeeping was fantastic. As all these complaints are from Business Class I'm wondering if the problem is the housekeeping team that is currently assigned to that building? We also had a 14 night stay in Ranchos 7B and I don't recall any housekeeping issues that stay either. Strange they would have their worst crew assigned to the most expensive building...lol

Hmmm all these housekeeping issues. sigh
And I have my little thank you envelopes ready to go! But won't be happy if I come back to nap and I get woken so they can clean the room.

Well if things are not going well, I'm putting up the sign to not clean my room, Save the tip! I hope this doesn't happen cause I like the TLC with the Mickey towels.

Do they still have Yuengling beer as well as Corona?

Thanks!
Daniel is one of the CMs that seemed to always be working in the BC lounge in the mornings. Such a friendly person and always asked people if they needed help with the latte machine. They were so willing to do anything to make your stay more enjoyable.

Regarding a few comments about housekeeping in BC, I didn't have any problems when I was there in May. My room was always cleaned while I was at the park and whenever I came back in the afternoon it was done. I always hate coming back to a room that wasn't done so I feel for anyone that didn't have good housekeeping.

Do you mean Beach Club (BC) or CSR? Just curious...

Ainsley, JT and Kate from Australia were excellent in the Evenings. Hoping they are all there in April.

My kids were rearranging their pins while we were in the lounge. My son lost his favorite pin . He was telling JT about it. JT ran to the concierge desk and grabbed the big pin book for my kids to look at. That's one they missed. (they looked at evry pin at the resort...so they thought) DS's eyes light up when he found the pin on the last page of a very large book.



BC is business class at CSR. It's an upgrade.

haha! Way too many acronyms. Disney is going to have to go to four word descriptors because we're running out of 2 and 3 letter terms. Yes, I was referring to business class when I said BC.

Room request

Its been almost two years since we have been to CSR. I can't remember how to request a certain area. Are the casitas still the first ones on and the first off the bus? For some reason I think we faxed the request for the casitas...Any input would be greatly appreciated.

What are the dessert options at Pepper Market? And how about drinks - just the regular options for mug refills or do they have juice, milk, bottled drinks, etc.?

Yes the casitas are near bus stop 2. We really enjoy staying there. I think they put the conventioneers in buildings 1-3 and I also think they are considered preferred rooms because they are closet to El Centro. Ask for building 4 of the casitas.
The bus stops are:
Bus Stop 1: El Centro
Bus Stop 2: Casitas
Bus Stop 3: Ranchos
Bus Stop 4: Ranchos and Cabanas
