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.
Yes, there is ample parking at the front of the building. I would not pay for a preferred room either.

From CSR, which National drop off location is best: Dolphin, Car Care Center, or Shades of Green?

Thanks!
Dolphin is closest.

In response to the handicapped rooms. There are 2 types of handicapped rooms. One has a roll in shower, and the other has a much larger bathroom, a bathtub shower combination with a hand held shower wand and handrails. The extra room in the bathroom is wonderful for ease of movement. My scooter fit fine in front of the window - we just moved the ottoman out of the way. The rooms, however, are not any larger. You will find it just fine. Have a great time!

sorry to double post - I still cannot figure out how to answer with the original post. Perhaps I did it correctly this time.

There is a Mustang enthusiast convention from the end of August with rooms blocked out through September 5th. I'd post a link but I can't from my smart phone.

What kinds of pastries do they have at Cafe Rix lately? We were there 2 years ago and I can't remember what they had then. Do they have pain chocolat or chocolate croissants?

I will! A good friend of mine is a room assigner at the resort and said she's hearing a lot of positive feedback about the club and it's offerings! I'm glad they have a club level that's not at the same price point at the deluxe resorts! We are excited to try it and I will give a full report!

I booked a Preferred Room for our upcoming trip. I have read this thread but getting more ad more confused. Will we be close to the first or second bus stop and/or main pool? That is what we are looking for. If I have made a mistake can I call and switch? Thanks so much. I am a total newbie and I have been trying to read up on as much as I can to help us out.

According to Buzz's site, Casitas 1, 2, and 3 are the preferred rooms at CSR.

A preferred room puts you in Casita 1, 2 or 3 which is close to the main building where registration, Pepper Market, Cafe Rix, Rix Lounge and the Gift Shop, Panchitos, are located. The main pool is across the lake from Casitas 1, 2 and 3. Casitas 4, which is about a four minute walk from there, is where you will find the Casitas Quiet Pool and the fitness center/spa. As you will be near the main building being in a preferred room, you will be closer to Bus Stop 1 which is the last bus stop picked up for the parks (although it is the first stop for Downtown Disney).
