Yay! Just booked for the first time starting November 1st! Also booked business class, sounds like the location and extra food and drink will be worth the upgrade! I am hoping to add free dining next week when it becomes available to the GP. Any additional info on business class or the resort itself would be fantastic! Can't wait!!'

Yeah, we are debating business class vs. regular too. I usually go to the store to buy groceries to eat in the room for breakfast and I'm wondering if it wouldn't be easier to just go to the business class lounge and have breakfast there.

Our dates are going to be Nov 9-17 with a 4 day cruise on the Dream to follow. Anyone going around that time?

My TA just applied FD to our CSR -business class trip on nov 15-20 today as well. I'm excited to try it out. We've only stayed at CSR once before and our then 4 yr old daughter had migraines for most of the trip and we were stuck in our room. Not much sight seeing then around the resort. Looking forward to it!!

Great, I will do that. Thanks.

First Timer Questions

We are staying at CS for the first time in October (boo about no FD but Oh Well ) we are taking our just turned 4 yr old for her first trip and the ILs are coming along.

I requested 8B to be close to transportation and El Centro. Can anyone give me an idea about how long the walk to the main building is, MMV I know but a general idea of what to expect?

We'll probably be going there to get breakfast most mornings as my BIL doesn't really eat cereal/carbs so want to know what we are looking at in terms of mornings.

I know with other resorts, there is a fax number for the resort that you can also fax in your special request a week before you go (in addition to having listed on your reservation). Does anyone know if there is one for CSR?

Can anyone tell me if the king rooms are in specific buildings or just scattered throughout the whole resort?

We will be at Coronado springs in October. The Travel Planner Int. Conference is there the same week. Have any of you had any experiences being there when they are? Do they take over the pool and beach areas? Any info on this would be appreciated.

There was a list close to the front of the old thread. It is very helpful. I assume it will be added here soon since this thread has just begun. Thank you Tinker Belle for starting the new thread. I know it is time consuming, and we all really appreciate it. Looking forward to our trip in October.
