If you have a car then the parking lot is still very close with the bus stop not too far away. 9B is a wonderful location, enjoy!!
That is encouraging to hear, these 10 months can't go fast enough. Like you I am a light sleeper and it's more of a concern about late night noise than it is about view. Then again, I would rather look at a nice view than someones 10 year old Toyota Camry outside my door.

Total newbie question:


Does the bus from CSR go directly to, say, Animal Kingdom, or must you travel all the way up to the TTC, change busses, and head back down to Animal Kingdom?

Just planning in nap times for the toddler )

Yes the bus will go to theme parks. You will not have to transfer.

Hmmm....I was going to book a CBR pirate room for our Sept. family trip, but after looking through this thread I think I am going to switch to CSR. The rooms have the same muted look that we like about the pirate rooms without the extra $40 a night price tag. The pool looks nice too, even if CBR has the better kids splash pool.

My question that I didn't see here (or very easily missed) is there ample parking by the main building where the restaurant is? We will have a vehicle and after reading about the long walk, we might want to drive over there on our way to the parks for breakfast to save about a half hour roundtrip walk. I don't see myself paying for a preferred room.

Hello!! Me and my bestie are going to be staying at The CSR in June. It is my first time in a moderate resort as we usually stay at the GF or SSR so a tad apprehensive but the resort looked beautiful on pictures and I've herd some amazing reviews so thought we would give it a try!
Silly question and probably not high among people's priorities for planning but....

I was just wondering if anyone could tell me the quality of the hair dryer provided?!? The others at the other hotels have been ok but as I've not stayed here before I don't know what it's like for amenities! we are coming from the uk it would be nice to to have to bring one however I hate the ones that are attached the wall or you have to keep your finger on the power button for it to work! I have quite a lot of hair and it takes ages to dry it with a professional hairdressing one so I could do with knowing!
Thank you!!

I'd bring your own hair dryer. My hair is very fine, and it still took a while to dry it using the one provided at CSR. Or at any Disney resort.

Have a great time!

Take a cab.

The other way would be to take a bus from CSR to a park (AK being the closest), then catch a bus leaving the park for AKL -- but that can be very time-consuming.

Transportations from CSR

Maybe I need to ask on the transportation board but I thought I'd start here first since we're starting at CSR.

We have a reservation for a Character Breakfast at 8:20 at Animal Kingdom on the day when the park doesn't open until 9:00. We've heard we should be at the park by 8:00 to get to the restaurant on time. Will the busses be running more than an hour before the parks open? We'd initially thought we would take a cab but my son is young/small enough that he is legally required to have a car seat and we don't want to lug it around with us all day. Now we're not sure what to do.

They should have a bus that runs early enough for you to get there. We had an early adr at Epcot once and made it fine.

Twin Air Mattress

Twin Air Mattress: Anyone fit one into a 2 Queen room at CSR? My DS is a kicker.

Also: I have read conflicting reports on whether or not CSR has roll away beds- can anyone confirm this? If so is the rental $15 a night- b/c if it is I'll just bring the air mattress instead- we are driving.

DBF and I are staying Feb 15-18th!!!

We are debating about adding the business club king room instead of a normal king room but still had some questions about it if anyone has stayed...

Do you have access to the lounge from 7-10 even though the food options are only offered till 10am and from 5-10pm?

I saw in one website that you get turn-down service..is that true?

For an extra $20 a day, it seems like a good option and would cover breakfast alone plus 9B is a great building to be in!

Yes, a twin air mattress fits just fine at the end of the bed. We use one all the time when we travel to CSR and just stand it up in the corner by the window during the day while we are at the parks. That way, mousekeeping can vacuum the room. I wouldn't bother with a roll away bed at that cost since it will just be in the way and you will have less floor space.

Thanks Jojo- that's what we are going with- air mattress. I appreciate all the help from everyone who has responded to- both in PM with a link to pics, to pricing info, to how it fits.
Have a great trip everyone!
