    We just got back on Sunday and after a major rain storm, power outage and flooding in my basement, I am finally getting to share my experience with everyone. We stayed at CSR Sept. 23rd-Oct. 1st. We were located in 8A Cabanas. It was a good location for what we needed. It was close to the pool and the bus stop. And just a bridge away from the Pepper Market. It was really hot the week we were there so we ended up using the pool almost everyday. I liked being able to just walk over and swim for an hour and walk back quickly. ( I have a 4 year old and a 5 month old. We went to the pool alot during the little ones nap) I think next time I would like to try the Casitas. They just seemed nicer.
    Anyway the bus system was great. I was worried the first day when we waited for 20 minutes to get to MK. But that ended up being our longest wait. And the buses were never crowded. I think that only one time did I see people standing. It was on a bus leaving DD on Sat night. We just missed it and another one came about 10-15 min later. We all had room to spread out.
    The Pepper Market was great for lunch and dinner. Not a big fan of their breakfast. Choices seemed limited during breakfast. We were on the dining plan, so maybe that is why. Food at lunch and dinner was wonderful. Huge portion. I did think that the alfredo sauce could use some more butter, but that just might be me. :goodvibes
    If anyone has any questions I will try and answer them. It was a great trip and we had a wonderful time. (Even with those nasty lovebugs tryng to invade our dance space all week)

    Always glad to read a good review of CSR since we'll be there over Thanksgiving. Welcome home! Sorry about the flooding - I hope not too much was damaged.

    We were there (but staying at POP) the same time as you. We had quite a lot of crowds on our busses, so we love hearing about your experience because we are going to be staying at CSR in December. I think we will love it.

    These great reviews are just so reassuring that I made the right choice for our first family trip and just make me so impatient to get there myself Thanksgiving week!!!

    Thanks so much for sharing.

    Sorry about the flooding--that is such a nasty mess. We always enjoy CSR, and it has really picked up steam on these boards during the past year or so.:earsboy:

    My DH and I loved the slide. I could not get my DD to go down. Although one day she did help open the slide up.

    It was a mess. We saw that the street outside our house was starting to fill up, so we knew it was just a matter of time. The rain just came down too fast. I luckly got alot upstairs before it got to be ankle deep. Only had to throw away 11 bags of stuff. (probably stuff I should have gotten rid of years ago)

    Hope all that are heading down to CSR have a wonderful time!!

    Every time I check out the new reviews about CSR I get more and more excited about having chosen this resort and look forward to my trip that much more:thumbsup2 I don't think I will make a request for a specific room as we have never been there before and might just like the area they give us......just a little over 2 weeks, can't wait......:dancer: :dancer: :love2: :drinking1 my ADR's are Alfredo's, San Angel Inn, Boma's, Le Cellier and the Rose and Crown.....:cake: :tinker:
    Thank you so much for your review!!!!!
