Most people call in and ask to have a room request noted on their reservation. If the room they offer you when checking in doesn't reflect your request, politely ask if your room request is noted on your reservation and if there if it would be possible to honor it.

Will you bring a pop up toaster? We brought fans and extension cords with us.One on the nightstand and the other we put on a cooler next to the bed by the door.

We only ate breakfast one time at pepper mill since we ate in the BC lounge. Breakfast was roughly 10.00 for a meal. My husband and daughter split a large omelet with home fries.
Sorry, but I was just told that all laundry is debit card swipe? Price is correct.

So I booked through a TA and I'm guessing it's too late. Oh well, we will be happy with whatever we get.

It is not too late. Just tell your Travel Agent you would like to make a request. It's not a problem.

Maybe it changed in the past two months. I was there mid April and did laundry. It was 2.00. Had to use quarters.

Who said it is debit card swipe? Maybe someone on location can confirm.

My DH & I stayed at CSR twice and really enjoyed the resort. Our last trip was in Dec. 2013 with my parents (they liked the resort, too.) We stayed in Casitas #5 and like this location very much. It was a short, pleasant walk to the main buildings. The bus stop was a quick walk (though building 4 is a little closer). Our building was very quiet, almost felt like we were the only ones there. I'm not sure this the best building for kids, since it is a bit of a walk Dig Site Pool. Casutas we're perfect for us adults. Our rooms were very clean and looked like they were recently remodeled. Beds were comfortable. We really did not like the food at the Pepper Market or the Quick Server, however the bakery, coffee, Gelato counter was good. We enjoyed Sitting outside eating an afternoon Gelato! Yum! The downfall to this past trip was the Cheerleading Convention. I believe this caused for the resort to busy and delays with the buses. Overall a beautiful resort.

We returned from CSR Sat, 6/14. Quarters only for the washer and dryers in Casitas 4. Everyone we encountered was pleasant. We had 4 standard rooms reserved and requested at the time we booked to be placed in Cabanas and to be near the Dig Site. We were told there were no rooms available in Cabanas and we were upgraded to water view rooms (2 lake view and 2 quiet pool view) and placed in Casitas 4. While we were very close to the quiet pool and bus stop 2, it was a hike to the main pool area. This was a disappointed since we had 4 teens and 3 children under 7 that would have loved the main pool area and activities. It was just too much of an effort to get everyone there after touring all morning. We used it once during our 8 night stay and used the quiet pool in front of us the other days. A positive about Casitas 4 was the closeness of the fitness center-we had two teens who worked out frequently. Food at Pepper Mkt was adequate. We ate nachos, flatbread pizza, pasta, and breakfast one morning. Looking back, I wish we would have tried moving to the Cabanas the next day. It would be nice if there was a bridge that connected the end of the Casitas section to the Dig Site, much like the one that is in front of the Cabanas. It was still a pleasant stay and we wouldn't hesitate staying here again for a third time.

According to post #3 of this thread Casitas 1, 2 and 3 are preferred so you'll be in one of those buildings.

I would love to see pictures of any of the CSR cakes but would like to at least know what you thought of them. I read through some of the cake chatter thread but those were mostly custom cakes & spending $100+ on a cake for the 4 of us doesn't appeal to me. Thanks in advance!
We got the chocolate mickey head cake with the mousse filling for my birthday during the fireworks cruise. It was $65 I think and worth every penny. We still talk about that cake and its been a few years.

Got it from one of the people who runs Disney for Seniors site. They even showed how to avoid having your card ID swiped illegally. I guess I better get someone to tell so I bring quarters after all.
