Are they still offering these items or have they removed them completely? Really hoping they haven't done away with them.

My understanding is that everything is still being offered. I think they are just trying to make things more efficient.

We had nachos tonight. The toppings were beef or chicken, beans, cheese sauce, tomatoes and sour cream. Didn't see anything about fajitas, but I didn't pay attention.

Question about the Dig Site. Does the water slide have a height requirement? Can I be near the bottom of the slide to help my kids get back out of the water? Can they wear water wings or are there life jackets available? My kids are so excited about a water slide but are not the best swimmers!! Thanks for your help!!

Thank you...I really like Pepper Market and enjoy their food so I'm glad they're not getting rid of it all together.

You got water view but paid for standard? Nice! I know that happens sometimes, and I'm really hoping that it happens to me in September. Any idea how one gets so lucky as to get upgraded??

There is a convention going on. It ends tonight. It seems a lot of them are in Ranchos. We are here for nine days, maybe that's why? That's what my DH believes. We are beach side cabanas. Good luck!

I love CSR which is a big resort but I think driving to El Centro from my room would be a bit much. The path around the lake is about 3/4 mile long so even if you were staying in the farthest building from El Centro you can't really be more than half that distance. There is parking at El Centro or course but you would miss the pleasure of sauntering through the grounds on your way to breakfast, etc. and finding hidden gems if you just kept getting in your car.
Hm. I was planning to park and leave the car all week. The buses sound more convenient than finding a spot everywhere and walking that MK lot. Plus the lines getting in to the lots.

For us I think it'll be less hassle taking the buses.

Am I wrong? Or do some people with cars leave them?

I don't remember there being a height requirement. There are life jackets available at the pool although I'm sure water wings are acceptable. There is a lifeguard at the bottom of the slide and a signal light at the top to let the kids know when to "go". Your kids would need to move to either side after sliding so as not to block the lane.

We go every December for 2 weeks. This year will be our 4th time at CSR. We come all the way from western Canada and the last thing I want to do on my vacation is have the stress of driving in a busy strange place. We have never rented a car and have always used the Disney transportation, other than the odd Taxi ride. CSR has great bus service. It is the most centrally located resort.

The only issue with the bus transportation is DTD. It's an issue with any resort that doesn't have a boat heading there. However I'm not sure driving to DTD is any faster right now with all the construction and road blocks. Finding a parking spot is an issue and it will likely be a long walk from that spot.

We use Disney transportation. i think it's fun. We use the buses/boats/monorails. I always like to visit Tambu lounge at the Poly. This past time I took the bus to Epcot, monorail to MK then Poly. We took the monorail to MK and then caught a bus back to CSR.
It's an adventure. I love it!

The only time we use the truck is when we go off property. We usually leave once to go to some favorite off property places on I drive.

Every time we've had a car with us we find it stays put until we check out. We prefer the buses to driving as we find the bus rides to be an experience in and of themselves. We have met so many nice people from all over the world on the bus rides to and from the parks.

I agree bus transportation to DTD leaves much to be desired. However, driving to DTD right now appears to be SO much worse than using bus transportation. We met friends their on a weeknight last October and it took nearly 90 minutes for them to finally get a parking space. It was crazy! I've heard the parking situation has only gotten worse so I would avoid driving there at all costs.
