I always forget about the boat.

Hello
We're just booking to stay at CSR for the first time, so excited!
Mind is boggling with all the sections/buildings/bus stop options though
Here's a little list of our preferences, any advice on where would be good to request?:

-Standard (as in, not paying for preferred room) room
- We're two adults, able to walk no problem so that's not a worry
- If possible we'd like quite a quiet area
- we're not very worried about view (we're hardly in the room but to sleep)
- Near a quiet pool would be nice as we like a quick swim in the evening
- Not bothered about proximity to Pepper Market etc. We eat bfast in the room and then eat at the parks/other resorts anyway

Thanks in advance for any suggestions you may have

You're certainly easy to please! Ranchos are the most remote and tend to be the quietest since they are requested least often. There is a quiet pool next to ranchos 7B.

All the sections have their own bus stop, quiet pool and laundry. If you are not concerned about proximity to the main building or the Dig Site, I would just request a quiet location instead of requesting an area. Even if you are placed in the most remote location, you might have noisy neighbors. If you are not happy with your room, go to the front desk and ask to be moved (even if it is the next day). The front desk CMs are very accommodating. Calling the front desk sends your call to a call center, so I would walk to the front desk if you need a different location.

CSR tends to be a quiet resort anyway. Because there are several different buildings, you usually only have people walking by your room if they are staying in that building. It is not like the resorts with interior hallways, where people run past your room on the way down the hall, to the lobby, etc.

Enjoy your stay!

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

If you want to use Disney transportation, take the bus to MK then the boat to Fort Wilderness (HDDR is at Fort Wilderness, not Wilderness Lodge ). Allow at least an hour for transport, because you will have to take an internal bus at Ft. Wilderness to get to Pioneer Hall.

Alternatively, you can take a cab to Ft. Wilderness and get on the internal bus.

If you are coming from a park instead of from CSR, get on the bus to Ft. Wilderness.

After the show, there are usually buses that run directly to the resorts (at least for the later shows).

First, the HDDR is not at WL. It's at FW. We stayed at CSR and went to HDDR last April. (It was all wonderful!) Anyway, we took the bus to MK then got on the boat. It was way fun!!! We rode the bus back to CSR though.

This CM tried to convince all of us taking the boat over to the HDDR to get him 3 pieces of the fried chicken since it was soooo good.

Thank you very much for your help
Think we'll take you're advice and just explain at check in that we'd just like somewhere quiet, and near a quiet pool. Much easier than trying to work out all the room/building numbers
Thanks again, I'm so super excited to be staying at CSR, it looks amazing!

You can call Disney reservations or your travel agent and make your request now, but you can also ask at check-in. Enjoy your trip!

We are planning a trip to CSR Sept 25-Oct 1(free dining, Woot Woot!!). Finalizing plans before we make our reservations and have a few questions--I know the info is out there, I just haven't found it.

Does CSR have free WiFi?

Anyone shipped USPS to the resort lately? I wonder when that loophole will close...

Has anyone had luck with getting a good deal on a business class upgrade at check in? It looks like about $50/night for our family, but I wonder if a better deal might be available if we wait and inquire at check in how much it would be. (Does the CM at the front desk have any sway when it comes to that?)

Thanks for your help!!

There is a sticky at the top of the board re: wi-fi. All the resorts have had it since last summer.
