He originally had PMed me the info. I had heard some stuff I asked him to look into. His contacts at CSR confirmed the refurb. He has posted this in the main forum area. He hasn't made any official updates to his site as the details and time frame are sketchy at this point. All we know for sure is that it starts in August with the Casitas area. They have already contacted some people to move to different rooms. I suspect if you haven't been contacted they have enough people moved at this point.

We get to fly in a day early to save $$$ courtesy of Southwest's fall fare sale. So our new dates are Oct 1 - 12

We are booked in a standard room, so I guess all we can do is request a refurbed room when it gets closer and cross our fingers. It wouldn't make or break the trip but it sure would be nice!
Are there any prototype pictures or details floating around out there?
I tried going into the survey to export the pics but it won't let me open the survey since I already took it. The pics of the remodel were beautiful. Stand up shower with glass doors and all new modern tile. The blue/red/yellow tiles were removed. The survey was sent May 6th.

Just wondering we are headed to CSR Aug 17 to 23 and I have requested Casita building 4 to be close to stop 2. I recently read on the thread that the preferred buildings would be closed due to refurb in August. Is the whole Casita section unavailable? I requested Casita because my mother in law is handicapped and I thought it would be easier for her to get to the main building and she would have a seat on the bus being at the 1st stop. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

I'm pretty sure they just close 1 building at a time. Most likely starting on Casitas 1 and working forward. I'm guessing they won't get to Casitas 4 until much later in the fall.

I hope the refurb includes some rooms for 5. The pics of CBR protoype rooms I've seen floating around show the murphy bed/bench that POR has.

More opetions for a family of 5 would be GREAT!

Just back from our stay at the CSR. It was great!!! I will say that for those wanting to go to Magic Kingdom first thing in the AM (park opening times) and evening nearing the fireworks times/parades....take the extra little walk and go to Bus Stop 2 (first pick up). Do NOT go to Bus Stop 1...most of the time it is filled by 4, or at 4. All the other parks we had no trouble really getting on at any of the bus stops.
Business class was great. My parents (70's) loved it and it was most definitely enough for a quick bite in the AM for those that don't eat huge breakfasts. It was nice to unwind at the lounge in the evening (we were there with 3 kids so late late nights only happened a couple times).
Registration people were great, concierge was very helpful, especially 15 mins before our bus back to the airport when one of our sons realized he had left his POC medallion hanging on a lamp in the room we had checked out of. They saved a huge cry fest on the bus back to the airport (huge applause from a overtired mommy).
Kids loved the DIG site and waterslide as well as the quiet pool in Cabanas.
The ladies at the gift shop and Pepper Market were great with the boys.
Walking, while there is some doesn't take that long. We never took more than 5-7 mins to get from BC to Bus Stop 2 (MK mornings) and that's travelling with 2 seniors, and 3 kids under 10 (and us, 30 somethings).

There were a few small groups in the convention this past week but other than them being dressed up we didn't notice them at all.

We would definitely stay at CSR again. We love the handiness of the Contemporary for MK but CSR BC is a close second!

Beautiful resort, flowers everywhere, and plenty of lizards, bunnies and ducks to keep the kids entertained. Never did see the Alligator though. Everyone who has reservations, enjoy your stay!!!

Quite amazing how this flew under the radar. The CBR refurb has been big news for quite sometime now, but only minimal rumours of a CSR refurb.

They are starting in the Casitas preferred rooms. I'm not sure at this point how long this will take or which section is next. Some of us who are going in November and December could very well have a new room!!
We just got back and I was told the refurb was in the near future. How exciting for everyone over the next yearish...new rooms are always nice! Our room in BC was already very pretty but I could see how they could update the bathrooms etc. I was told they are going to try and add more adjoining doors in the BC area.

I'm told the Cabanas section which includes Business Class will be done last. So probably not until sometime in the spring when they get through the rest of buildings.

Cabanas is by far the most requested area at CSR and apparently the last time they did a refurb they did Cabanas first. It caused mass chaos. Anyone who wasn't put in Cabanas was very angry. So having said that it makes sense to do them last.

We only want to stay in the BC rooms there now, so from a personal stand point I'm disappointed, but I understand why they are doing them this order. They are starting at Casitas 1, then 2, and working around the lagoon in that order.

Do you know is this just going to be a room refurb or will amenities like the main pool be affected? I'm really nervous now.
