So is the free wifi just in the lobby area or is it in the rooms as well?

Checked in a few hours ago. Room was ready. Cabanas 8b. I had requested casitas 4, but figured a ready room was worth it. Got there and its a corner room 1st floor. Real nice view out the windows. And honestly, its a super short walk to el centro, and the pool appears to be real close as well. Granted, I'm usually at BWV with the hallways, so this is nothing! So far so good! At Hollywood studios now, I have some fp+ to use!

My dd10 and I are going to CSR for the 3rd leg of our trip this Late May/early June. We are starting out at ASMu 5/29 then over for our 1st trip to The Dark Side 6/3-5 and checking into CSR 6/5-9 in Business class. Never stayed at any of these resorts but very much looking forward to CSR and especially Dig Site Pool. My DD is super excited about the lounge and pool slide

Can anyone tell me if there is a common area, like the Lounge open at 1pm at CSR to watch NFL .... not interested in going to ESPN, but don't want to miss the game, nor do I want to sit by myself in my room (Wife and kids will not watch Football)

At least you're rooting for the right team.

CSR has a really nice lounge. Rix Lounge. They will put the game on there if it's on the regular channels that Disney carries. If it's not on those channels than you will have to go to ESPN Club. Lounge is really nice though.

Just got back today after a 16 night stay at CSR. This was our third time at this resort, and it did not disappoint.

Great room in Casitas 4, close to the quiet pool, first bus stop, and with a water view.

No issues with housekeeping (we somehow lost a Kindle when they changed the sheets but they gave us a room credit as comp).

I much preferred Pepper Market as a breakfast buffet, had no interest in it now.

The cheerleaders were out in full force today. We stayed over Thanksgiving week and last week - both seemed to be equally busy to us. There weren't any slow days like we remember from previous years.

Weather was awesome - only sprinkled for about an hour one day. Rest of the time it was partly cloudy to sunny, cool to warm.

Its in the rooms too but where our room was - Cabanas 9A room 9160 - we found the signal to work intermittently. Also had issues with cell service on AT&T in and right outside of our room.

We've always had issues with Sprint inside the rooms. My phone was constantly searching for reception unless I had it sitting near the window. Had no trouble with wifi.

We had issues with Verizon too in our room. I always had to go outside to answer a call :/
