We had a wonderful trip. Feeling a little down now that the whirlwind is over.

This is my family. I found it, all on my own. Is little, and broken, but still good. Yeah, still good.

I ALWAYS PANIC!!!
for me when I checked every resort only had the most expensive room available!?! what's up with that?

Ok we are going the end of January. What location should I put in for our request? Right now we just have a standard room booked as the booking amounts seem all over the place right now.

Great! That's sort of the answer I was hoping for

Does anyone have a picture of an inflatable mattress in their room??

My daughter can't share a bed. She is a horrible sleeper. I was planning to take an inflatable mattress.

Well technically the only thing your are guaranteed is a room on the property. I've booked a category before; preferred, water view, etc and when we checked in were told there were no rooms available in the category I booked and all they had were standard rooms. I was refunded the difference, but I did have to ask for that.

That's awful!
With such "sophisticated" booking systems that shouldn't happen!

All 3 times it has happened it was because of maintenance issues and they had to take rooms out our inventory. Stuff happens. But that is when I was shown the fine print about what you are actually guaranteed.

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".

Ok. This is our room before the cot was rolled in. We had the same situation. My son was terrible to sleep with. Anyway, on the far wall, in the corner was the head of the cot. (Provided by CSR) We scooted the desk down a little, moved the ottoman/chair and voila' ... plenty of room. It would be the same footprint for the air mattress.

His bed was quite comfy, too!

Started narrowing our options and considering a resort swap after the Fall discounts showed up. I booked a Standard at CSR after reading through this thread, and was able to upgrade it to BC today, when one suddenly showed as available. Thanks for the great information here!

I've skimmed this thread (it's getting pretty long though!) and the shipping information but I'm still not clear because a lot of the information is kind of old.

If I have Garden Grocer deliver items to CSR, where is it going to end up? Bell services or at the convention center where I have to pay more to get it?

Just booked our stay for October! It will be our second time staying, and my parents first trip ever to WDW. Very excited to be going back to CSR!

GG orders go to Bell services. There is no charge. We do this every trip.
