I would see if you can let them know in advance that your one night reservation is followed by a package. Maybe a fax or call.

I know they tend to assign rooms in advance so that may make it easier for them.

We have a super early flight that gets us to Orlando by 9:15 am so I figure we will be checking in at the resort by 10:30 am if all goes smoothly which it usually does with Southwest.

We have a preferred room booked with the FD and I know the resort will probably be full.

Would be nice if our room was ready, but if not I figure we can head to Downtown Disney for lunch and some shopping... Hoping they have some "Frozen Ornaments" out by Nov in the Christmas store so I could go buy those...

Just wondering if others had luck with the room being ready that early?

I have always had great luck with our Studio being ready early at AKV in the past..Coming off the Disney Cruise they get you to the resort super early.
We checked in at 9:30 last September and our room was ready.
I actually asked the CM to repeat herself because I didn't believe it lol. She laughed at me and assured me our room was ready. We checked in on a Monday and no conventions were happening but FD was going on. So I would do online check in and hope for the best

I may try to call. My TA assured me that she did note it. I would love to be upgraded to the preferred room for the entire stay, but if that's not possible, then I'm happy to take a standard King to just avoid having to switch.

Laundry at CSR

Does anyone know the condition of the laundry rooms recently? Are the machines in good repair and not rusty? We are staying longer this trip, so I either ship more clothes or have to do laundry!

We are usually there for 2 weeks, so we do laundry once or twice. I don't haven any complaints, other than some of the dryers work better than others.

I did laundry this morning and earlier this week. There was a dryer or two with out of order signs. I used the front loader both times. I didn't think it was rusty. I saw two CMs working on dryers earlier on the week. It's $2 each for wash and dry, quarters.

Hot off the press. Just walked by Pepper Market. No more card to stamp and pay later. Now it's like other Disney food courts. Go through the line and pay at the register. Then sit down and eat. We checked in about 11:00am and our room was ready.

We are checking in also on Dec 1st on FD. We booked a king water view that for some reason was cheaper than just a king room. Go figure... We get in a 1p and will be in search of somewhere to watch the UGA/FLA game.

I bet that's why they took out the center Fajita stand.

Free dining is offered on Dec 1st? I arrive the 2nd and I thought that week was excluded. Did you have a pin?

Wow. That is hot off the press… we were just there a week ago and they were still using the stamp and card system. Though we observed an issue where it seemed some group had eaten and then skipped out on the check. So I'm not that surprised they'd change the system.

Oh no that was one of our favorite things since at other resorts we had always complained that our food was cold by the time you sit down. We loved the Pepper Market's system. Thanks for the update!!

Same here! I always arrive earlier, and have never had any problems checking in as early as 9am most trips! Love CSR! I'm staying at POR this trip, and hoping I have the same luck.
