Is there an easy way to get from Casitas to the Dig site Pool? Is there a bus that is close to the Dig site? If not how long of a walk do you think it will be from the preferred rooms to the Dig Site?

Couldn't you just get on any bus at your bus stop and get off at the Ranchos stop #3 or the one closest to the pool?

I think you would spend more time walking to and from the bus stops. Casitas to Dig site isn't a far walk. Maybe 5 minutes.

We stayed in Casitas 4 for 14 nights Dec. 2011, which was shortly after WiFi became a free service WDW wide and it was slow and inconsistent like you describe. Last trip 12 nights Dec 2013 staying in Business Class Cabanas 9B the speed was excellent. I even had no problem streaming my NHL hockey games on my iPad.

So I'm not sure if they improved the setup resort wide or if the setup is just better in the BC section. I believe WiFi was available in that section prior to it becoming basic service everywhere so it could be a different setup. But it was good there. My only complaint is that it didn't work laying on the hammocks out front, only in the room, lobby, and Digsite.

WDW Marathon Weekend

Has anyone ever stayed at CSR during any of the runDisney races?
We've stayed at CSR once before, but we are looking specifically to get feedback on experiences with the buses for the expo and races.

If anyone has any info in reference to staying at CSR during races, I would so appreciate it! Thank you!!

Stayed November 2013 and had no wifi issues. Connection and speed were very good. Used it every night to check the kids' homework assignments to make up when we got home. We were driving and it seemed like the connection would end after driving out of the resort and pick up again at the next location- just not on the roadways.

king rooms?

Very excited to be returning to the wonderful CSR in September! We loved it 2 years ago and this time we booked a king room - anyone know there those are located? Last time we stayed in Casitas and I think for a change this time we'd like to try one of the other sections. I'm hoping for Ranchos but I will be happy anywhere

I think it would just be easier to walk. It can't be but a 5 minute walk.
