Thanks for the replies! I tried calling today but couldn't get anyone on the phone. We have plenty of time but it's on my mind & will bug me until I figure it out. Plus I'm on a diet and looking at the cake pics is just so wrong!

First Time CSR Visit; need some advice

I have a question for you CSR veterans.....

We have reservations for preferred room at CSR for Aug 13-21. (our first time at CSR but many times at other resorts)..

I'm now at the point where we can do our online check-in (which i haven't done yet). First off, should we do online checkin or just check in on arrival (any pros and cons here)? We are driving in (not flyIng) so probably be arriving at the resort around noon or so.

Second, what building can we expect to be staying? Is there any special requests (room requests, etc) that would make our first stay at CSR any better? I guess any special requests would likely have a better chance if we online checked in soon..

Any advice from those that have been there would be greatly appreciated.


OH and i read on another thread about room rehabs at CSR (preferred rooms in August).. Anyone have any confirmations from that?

We had a preferred room reserved for August 31st-Sept 5th. I received a call from Disney saying they were doing maintenance and preferred would not be available and we would be switched to water view. So, it's definitely happening but I am not sure when it starts.

Staying at CSR in dec. standard room free dining promotion. We are driving to WDW and plan on driving to the parks and not using bus system. Also, don't plan on eating at the resort. I have ADR ressies and counter service plans and will bring muffins and such In room for breakfast. Do you think it matters what area at CSR we are put in? I see a lot of discussion about what building you should be in.q

Given those parameters it probably doesn't matter. You could just request close to parking ground floor and hopefully they give you a room backing right on to the parking lot. That way you would be steps away from your car.

Chocolate croissant

Can anyone tell me if CSR has chocolate croissants? I had my first at POP last trip & I'm hoping CSR has them.

Question about the bus stops. From reading this thread so far (only on pg 30) the bus stop #1 is at El Centro and stop #2 is near Casita 4. Looking at the resort map there is a bus stop at the convention center in between El Centro and Casita 4. Does the park bus stop at the convention center or skip it?

I think what you are referring to is the Magical Express stop, the park buses don't stop there.

The park buses goto stop 2 first. Stop 1 is actually the last stop.

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

They did when I was there April 2012! (Lots of croissants!) Hopefully they still have them.

Thank you so much for the clarification!

After reading this thread my TA was able to change from a standard room to business class for our trip 10/13-10/21! Very excited!!!! My AAA TA didn't even know about BC until I asked her to look into it - crazy!!!!

We've always stayed at AKL and DD12 and DD9 were disappointed to not have bunkbeds but CSR looks amazing, I think they will LOVE the pool and I really like the idea of sending DH and kids to the lounge for a quick breakfast and his coffee before we head out. We are going to be RD'ers for the first time ever so AWESOME SAUCE!!!!

One odd question: Is Coke available in the lounge in the morning? I am not a coffee person, Coke is it for me. I saw in someones pictures of the lounge that Coke was there but I think it was in the evening pics w/beer/wine offerings. Just wondering if DH will have to go elsewhere in the morning to get it for me.

You can ask the CM's. They will get it from the back for you.

Yowza that is a lot of kids ). We stayed in 9A and loved it. The quiet pool is right there which might be nice for a quick dip/night swim with your kids. Very close to El Centro. I think 8B would also be a good choice

Congratulations!! Business Class at CSR is the best experience any of the Mod resorts have to offer. The room location is awesome!!

The Coke won't be out in the morning, but they will grab you one if you ask.

Lounge serves breakfast. 7am-10am.

We don't do rope drop so I can't really help with those questions.
