We just stayed at CSR 2/21-2/ 28 in Casitas and the bus service was great. We have a rental car so we drive quite a bit, but this trip we used the buses a lot more because they were so good. We had just as good service if not better than WL which was awesome. We took the bus to MK and epcot and never had to wait either way more than 5 minutes.

Agreed! Also we had horrible buses at the Poly. Worst buses ever!

Pros: We got a seat all of the time going to the parks ..Con: We had to make the loop around CSR to the other 3 stops before heading to the parks.... this added 10 min to every trip.=
I was there in Feb during the "slow season." And experienced just what Bus36 wrote. Timing has a lot to due with the buses and if you are a Rope Drop person. I too was at the Casitas section and though I would love to stay at Cabanas, the one day I had to hopped on the bus 15 mins to RD to MK and went around to the El Centro/Cabanas bus stop, the bus was packed and seats were taken. Other times it was EMPTY. For instance, one afternoon to either HS or Epcot I was the only one on the bus and had a grand time chatting with the driver.

As for the trip to the parks, eh... MK is still a loooong ride. AK, Epcot and HS are the closest. In fact, from a section of CSR you can see the top half of either the Swan or the Dolphin (always forget which is on what side LOL!). And you have Blizzard beach down the "block."

We've stayed at CSR several times and most of the time, the bus service has been very good. There's usually one time per trip where we get to the stop and we have to wait longer than average, but most of the time we're boarding a bus within 5-10 minutes.

As some others noted, the buses to DTD do tend to take longer for some reason, so we usually drive ourselves.
