We've never stayed at CSR, but we loved CBR. We loved the beautiful grounds, the food court, the pool, and the transportation. Everything was great about our stay, but the buses were especially great as they were very quick and efficient. CBR is centrally located so it didn't take more than about 10 minutes to get to any theme park, water park, or DTD. CSR doesn't appeal to us as far as theme/decor, but everyone's opinion is different. I would choose by which theme you like the best and go with that resort. Good luck.

CSR without a doubt for our family. Didn't have a bad experience by any means @ CBR... the resort was lovely and definitely lived up to it's name. However, until they refresh the rooms and put queen beds in the rooms, we wouldn't consider staying there again.

CSR is our favorite mod... heading back in 17 days!

One stay at CBR, three at CSR. You can see where I suggest.

Apples to Oranges. CBR was first moderate built, CSR last. They just kept getting it better each time. We call CSR "the deluxe moderate".

A positive for CBR, it has bigger rooms but I don't need more floor space, I need bigger beds and upgraded decor. I won't be returning unless I get an offer that is more in line with value rooms.

This! Once at CBR was enough for us for now at least. CSR is our favorite mod, too!

They have very differnt themes. Which appeals to you more?

As already said CBR has full beds vs queens at CSR. CSR also is a convention hotel with a bit more adult facilities and great restaurants, IMO.

Both have buses that only go to that resort, but have multiple stops within the resort

Both are great resorts, but somewhat large. Some people dislike the hike to the furthest rooms so whichever you choose, I would consider looking at preferred location if close to the main building is important to you.
