Yes.

Our room at Pop Century was so close to the lobby and the food court and everything and I am just worried I will be disappointed with being so far away. I know that sounds silly.

Maybe if our room is all the way at the other end of the resort I could use it as an excuse to "explore" the resort.

We will be there Oct. 6-10 to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. Our first trip was for our 30th, the second for our 33rd. Hmmm... does anyone see a pattern developing here? I love it!!!

Not silly AT ALL!! That is how I feel. We stayed at CSR once a while ago and we were in the Ranchos section...never again. It was beautiful but we felt so separated from everyone and everything. It was like we had to hike everywhere just to be a part of stuff. The only reason I booked CSR this time was because of the BC location. So I totally understand your disappointment!

I honestly don't even know what other resort to start looking at if I were to want something that had a definite closer room.

The rep did say that there were no other moderate resorts with preferred rooms available.

Think I will talk to my husband about it this afternoon and leave the decision up to him on if he wants to stay there with the chance of having a room really far away.

I remember on one of the back posts that someone said they always requested waterview because it was the best of the non-preferred locations. I am sure someone will chime in to help direct you on what bldg. to request. Standard is what we had and that's how we ended up in Ranchos. Hey, it's Disney it can't be that bad !

The good news is that there are no waterview rooms in the "worst" section of the resort.

I can assure you that there are no 20 minute walks at this resort. I can walk a lap around the entire resort in 15 mins at a normal walking pace. All rooms are close to a busstop, no one is farther than 2-3 mins from a stop. It's not like Pop where there's only one stop. You will have your share of 5 min walks at CSR, but there is no 20 min walks unless you have a physical condition that makes it take that long.

I do have a post somewhere earlier in this section describing the waterview rooms.

Did disney offer anything to you? I would think this is on there part and maybe you should be upgraded not down graded. Seems unfair.

I tend to agree. However keep in mind at CSR the preferred room and waterview room price is the same. Some would argue that some of the waterview room locations are better than the preferred as well. But I do agree that typically in this type of business they other you an upgrade or compensation of some sort when forcing you to change your plans.

Yes usually disney is great with making up for things and I don't think they are in this situation.

Thanks
