We stayed Cabanas building 8B. We literally could not have been closer to transportation based on the room they gave us in that building. I requested a room close to transportation and the lobby at check in. That puts you at stop 4. All buses going to theme parks + internal buses go straight from stop 4 to stop 1 which is the lobby. Downtown Disney buses go straight to DTD. It's also not a really bad walk from the lobby.

The pool hours when we were there were 9 or 10am to 9 or 10pm, depending on the day, which was really disappointing for us because we like to swim before and/or after our park days. I'm hoping that it'll be different at CSR where there are true quiet pools, and that what we experienced at ASMu was essentially Disney treating both of the pools as "feature".
I'm here right now and the feature pool is open from 9-9 and the quiet pools are open 24/7.

Weather has been ok. Raining more than I'd like but warm and humid. Definitely warm enough to swim.

Do you know if they are "policing" the main pool site? In past stays we have always been able to use the hot tub at late and early hours without any problem. Hoping it's still that way in February.

Double checking what I think I know about doing laundry at CSR.

Please correct me if I'm wrong!

1- Laundry facilities are on site and one can be found in each section.

2- Change machines are available and take $1s, $5s and $10s so I do not need to take rolls of quarters.

3- $2 per wash cycle and $2 for a 20-30 min dry time.

It will take AT LEAST two dry cycles per load, in my experience.

Really? I never needed more than one... but I suppose it depends on how heavy the load is

I was worried about that so I thought I should plan for 3 cycles! I rather have extra money and dry clothes than not enough money and soggy clothes.

Maybe I just know how to pick a dryer. I've had bad experiences at CSR and POFQ. This past trip, after two cycles I had clothes hanging all over the room as we had to leave for a dinner ADR and didn't have time to do a third.

Ah, that's too bad. Being from the UK I was always unsure how much you could fill up the washer.... probably why our clothes only took one cycle to dry

My family is going to WDW for the first time this December.. We were going to book at riverside but I was checking out other resorts and this one seems better and $500.00 cheaper for 10 days stay!! As a first timer at CSR these are my questions..

Booking a two queen standard view.. Or better to pay more for a view? Or preferred room??

Shall I request to be near bus stop #2 for ease of getting bus seats?

What discounts will come out for dec 2-12 2014?
Or Will they be later out for a later stays in dec?

1900 park fare and Cinderella royal table good character meals?..

Any other first time suggestions?

My family consists of me and my husband and then 8 year old daughter!!

Please hit me with advice?? Thanks a disney obsessed mom!! And first time guest !!
