I didn't ask, but the coffee in Pepper Market was good so maybe they are?

Good idea. I may have to rethink our room location.

You'd think a sniff in the general vicinity would be sufficient
I mean, how much more can a dead guy do?!?

Personally, I'm kind if over the bus service. Even though CSR has some of the best I've encountered, I'm still going to drive! The worst was ASM!

Subscribing! First CSR stay this December and I'm excited. People do seem to love or hate this resort from the reviews and comments I've read, but I'm looking forward to it!

Just curious, was the issue that no AK buses came for an hour or that they came but were full when they got to Stop 1?

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".

I'm just going to toss in my 2 cents worth here ....

We visited during Spring Break and the place was full. We never encountered ANY bus problems whatsoever. I think the bus issues are pretty-much a fluke - just like anything else can be.

On any typical given day, the bus service at CSR is great!

I agree. We've stayed at CSR twice at Christmas time, the busiest time of year and the bus service was great.

I was at CSR in August 2011, only mod we stayed at and absolutely hated it. All the deluxes that we stayed at had better bus service than CSR. We waited for 30 minutes under the bus shelter in pouring rain for buses. I honestly think they have the worst bus service we encountered.

I beg to differ... the whole Swan, Dolphin, YC, BC and BW loop is horrible! That is way too many large resorts on one bus!

I stayed at BW and we had to pick up at all those resorts....guess it was just time of year or we caught them at a good time because it was just us (family of 4) and a mother with two kids who got on at Dolphin. No one at Swan, BC or YC. And it was going to MK, a busy park. That is a bad bus loop but it's really not bad at certain times. CSR is probably worst of all the mods.

Sorry you had a bad experience at CSR, but its generally known on Disboards that CSR has the most consistently good bus service at WDW. The combination of buses coming quick and the short rides because of the central location can't be beat. Our last trip to CSR was at Christmas time for a full 14 nights/15 days, we never waited longer than 10 mins for a bus ever. Most times less than 5 mins. None of the Deluxes can come close to matching this service, they share buses and they don't send as many buses to the resort because they have smaller occupancy and most are using monorail, boat, or walking.

There are a small number of tables inside the Rix Lounge dedicated for Rix Cafe and there are lots of tables right outside.
