DHS: 18 (26)
AK: 18 (27)
Those times are estimates that including waiting for the bus. The driving times are significantly less. DHS is literally 5 mins away, Epcot 7-8 mins, AK 8 mins, and MK 12 mins. CSR is the most centrally located resort.

There are tons of open spaces to fly kites. The pool has activities like trivia, life size checkers and chess games, movies etc. i think you will find plenty to do. Marshmallow roasts, crafts, etc

Towels

Are there towels at each of the pools? Or do we need to bring our own?

Towels are available at the Dig Site. They don't want you to take towels from the rooms. I never bring my own towels; they take up too much real estate in my suitcase.

Is Peppers still a la cart? Visited in 2012 in December, and the counter service buffet was excellent. Wish they'd revert.

We're planning to bring our swimsuits in our carry-on's so we can swim and relax when we get to the resort. Are there lockers or something we can put our bags in and a changing area in case we can't get into our room yet? Our flight lands at noon so by the time we get there we will probably be able to check in but just in case we can't, we'd still like to swim.

You can leave your luggage at the bell stand at the resort and it will be delivered to your room when it's ready.

We stayed at CSR a few years ago & when I visited the restroom/locker room by the main pool, I remember thinking if we had a late departure flight that it would be convenient to be able to clean up there after a visit to the parks.

Silly question but are rooms in all 3 areas decorated the same inside?

Are there pics available of the 3 exterior types?

Thanks.

Can anyone who has been to CSR lately say whether or not the hot tub was working? I've seen a few reports that it's been down for a while. :-(

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".
