I agree,he seems like a great guy. I hope you don't think I was implying that he is not. We've probably said enough on this topic.
Moving on, it seems like CSR and CBR will be a bit more crowded during free dining this year. If CSR had been excluded instead of Port Orleans how many of you would switch to POR or POFQ? I like all the Mods so it would be easy for me, I'd go with the free dining.

If CSR was excluded I'm not sure what we would do. We have stayed at CSR 3 times and CBR once. I do feel CSR has more to offer than the other Mods (Almost Deluxe for Mod price), but the single biggest reason we only consider CSR is the Fitness Center. Our WDW vacations are generally 12-14 days and I would prefer not to go 2 weeks without some sort of working out. We had a great stay at CBR and would probably have a good stay at PO as well, but no Fitness Center.

There is a good chance that we would upgrade to a Deluxe, most likely one of the EPCOT resorts.

I wonder how excluding PO/POFQ and filling up CBR/CSR will affect the refurbishment at CBR. Seems like a good time for CBR to be half empty doesn't it?

I would recommend taking the resort monorail to MK and catching a CSR bus there or taking a bus to DTD and transfering to a CSR bus there. Alternatively, you could take a cab!

Take the monorail to MK. Then hop on a bus to CSR.

Is the momorail a new ride?

Can I assume that CSR offers airline (and baggage) check in on property, similar to POR? That is SUCH an amazing perk!!!

Yes they do but I think it has to be a participating airline, not sure about that. I used it with Southwest last Oct.

I take it that the free dining (US?) is not available for all of the Mods? POR is available for free dining in the UK along with all other Mods.

If CSR was excluded I think I would be stuck! POFQ looks nice but the masks unsettle me! POR was ok, but didn't have any wow factor for us. Maybe CBR would have to be given a chance

Yes, POR and POFQ are excluded from the US offer.

I read the first page and didn't see the answer to this, forgive me if it's somewhere on the many pages in this thread but I was wondering what time the slide at the pool closed? Can you swim at your own risk after hours. What time do the lifeguards leave for the evening.

You used to be able to swim at your own risk in the feature pools, but not any longer. Now the feature pools are closed when the lifeguards go off duty. The time they go off duty fluctuates due to time of year and occupancy, but it seems to be between 10PM and 11PM.

The quiet pools are open 24 hours and swim at your own risk.

Thank-you for the answers about the drinks. We are planning a Dec. trip, so the hot chocolate will be appreciated.

Hoping to book here on Wed. for free dining. We're Pop defectors instead of POR.
