Yes, they do offer a choice of bacon or sausage with the waffles. The waffle line was short! They have different lines for different stations and no waiting for waffles/pancakes or most of the other stations...just bad line for the eggs/omelettes.

I have a question.. what is the difference between a standard or a preferred room at CSR...Is the preferred room a nicer room or just closer to everything?

10 for us (well, today's basically over so nine - single digits woo-hoo!) and I'm starting to stress receiving a shipment of clothes I ordered for the trip. It said 7-10 business days and I only had 8. I didn't want to pay expedited shipping charges but with the stress it's causing me, it might have been worth it.

Standard and preferred are the exact same room, just closer to El Centro, in Casitas 1, 2, or 3.

Spent a short time at CSR this weekend with a one night stay. It wasn't my favorite resort, I'm sorry to say. I did a travel agent tour in September and saw a room in Casitas and thought it looked nice.

When we checked in, our room was ready even though it was only about 9:30 am. They couldn't honor any of my requests, so we ended up in Ranchos which I was very unhappy about. Took forever to get out there. Pulling our luggage. No one asked us if we needed help with the luggage although we later saw golf carts taking people and luggage out. The room was OK but the bathroom felt dirty--the grout is dark so it just didn't look clean and there was rust in the sink. Not that those things individually ruined our experience, it just didn't make me want to go back. I spent part of the time wishing I had gone back to Port Orleans French Quarter.

Pepper Market was fine but the lines were crazy long and not efficient. I don't like the drink station where you have to get your cup from someone. Just seemed like a waste of resources. Apparently they had just put in the drink machines in the middle of PM, but it was chaotic and not laid out well. There were two CMs at the drink machine, but they didn't know where straws were or why there weren't straws there, sugars were in a odd place and overall it's a very small cramped area.

We enjoyed an hour sitting by the lake enjoying watching the turtles and enjoying the sun. The setting from El Centro looking out was lovely.

I don't know. We just didn't love it. If I ever did it again, I'd definitely splurge for preferred or something. Ranchos is a ridiculously long way away.

I am surprised no one asked about your luggage. We had three different people offer to take our luggage...to Cabanas 9B - not really necessary. Agree that Ranchos would be a long haul with luggage if one did not have a car.

Agree about the dark grout in the bathroom. It does make the shower look dirty. We also had rust in the drain part of the sink. Also had lots of scuffed up furniture. Room was very clean though.

Pepper Market is just weird to me and seems to change every couple of months. We must have left right before they started using the drink station. It was there, but not being used. I just would like to see them scrap the Pepper Market and redo it like the food courts at the other mods.

We had just come off the cruise and had taken a Mears van from the port to CSR. When we first arrived, they asked if they could take our bags but we suspected that we were just going to put them in luggage storage assuming our room wouldn't be ready and needed to shift some things around in the suitcases/carry bags that we had. So we took the suitcases with us to check in. and that was it. No mention of any other way to get our suitcases out to the room. The CM checking me in said they couldn't accomodate my room requests and said we were in Ranchos...seems like she would have said something since she knew we were a mile away from our room!

Coffee?

Anyone know if you can get coffee in the morning at the Siestas Cantina restaurant by the pool? Just curious if I would have to walk to El Centro to get my mug refilled each morning. Thanks.

The pool bar opens at 11am.

We just got back from out trip and we loved the resort!! We were able to get our request for one of the Casita buildings and for a top floor room. We got both and had a great view of the lake and El Centro from room 5410. The rooms were great and we had a fridge for our Garden Grocer stuff.

Everything was great except the Pepper Market..... that was just freaky!! I did not like the stamp thing, the "quick service" & "snack" selections were not really marked. I got a bagel with some bacon and a fruit cup. When I got to the front she said they were all snacks. Never did get the hang of it but then again we only ate there twice, mainly due to the set up.

The CM told me to request a ground floor for convenience. But we have a water view room, so do you think we will have a great view from the bottom floor? Or would there be a lot of obstructions? Wondering if I should change my request to a top floor?

It depends what building you are in and what you want a view of. If you are in Casitas 4 or 5 with a waterview you can actually see some of the Epcot fireworks from the 4th floor and the view is great up there. If you are in one of the Cabanas buildings they are only 2 floors and the view will be the same on either floor.
