I agree! I love POR though.

Yeah, I wouldn't say I find the POFQ theme unsettling, but it is completely unappealing to me. It would be one of the last resorts at WDW I would consider staying at.

Panchito's

Not sure if this is the right spot for this question- if it isn't any direction on the right spot is greatly appreacieted.

We are staying at CS the night before we set sail on the Disney Wonder and I'm wondering if anyone know's if I can get a bottle of Sparkling Cider at Panchito's or possibly somewhere else at CS? Downtown Disney maybe?

Since we don't drink alcohol but are celebrating our anniversary on the cruise I wanted to pick one up. We're taking disney transport both ME and the DCL buses everywhere we go so there wont be an opportunity to go to an offsite store.

Unless anyone knows of anywhere at MCO I can get a bottle of Martinelli's? any ideas/suggestions are greatly appreciated

Room requests

I'm getting ready to book my May 2015 disney vacation for my college graduation! It'll be just me and my boyfriend and I've decided on CSR. Any suggestions on where we should put a room request in for? We're not huge pool people, so being close to the dig site isn't important. Also, are the parking lot views horrible or should I pay the extra for a water view? Any suggestions would be appreciated!

They will love the Royal Room! We got upgraded to one last fall and DD (then 10) said it was the prettiest room she has ever stayed in.

(I'm up to page 68 of this thread! Powering through!)

How much luck do people have being really specific with room requests? Specifically using Touring Plans' guidelines (ex Casitas 3 NE facing, 1st or 2nd floor, rooms 3X10-3x17 - I'm totally making those numbers up!). I plan to book Preferred because I LOVE the Casitas and proximity to the Pepper Market is important to us. But...and I'm embarrassed to admit this...since I first looked at CSR years ago, I've been so, so in love with that stretch between Casitas 2 & 3 that has the long fountain. I would be devastated not to stay in a room overlooking that! How likely would I be to get it during non-holiday periods in November/December/January?

If the pool doesn't matter, I would request Casitas. They are much prettier than other sections.

Room Finder

I have been looking at the Touring Plans Room Finder & wondering how that would work out, too. It is a neat little tool!

I'm completely obsessed! I'll probably wind up writing down every single room that I would be okay with! It's also a great way to see the resort from angles you normally wouldn't!

I am 100% full-on totally with you on this one, my friend!!! That stretch with the fountain is EXACTLY where I want my room!!!

Also agree. That photo is what made me love the hotel. Bummed that the whole place doesn't look like that.

Don't take this the wrong way but I don't get why people are so concerned with the view of their room when there is no balcony or anything else???
Do you sit looking out the window or what? With the way the walkways are I t's not like a mk view room at cr or something where you can look out and see
Confused, tia

For me I will be doing a lot of walking to and from the room and I will be awesome to look at the prettiest part of a hotel while I do that
