    Thanks. She had an upset tummy and her arthritis is acting up. We took her for her "senior" check up today and she has an infection in her eye and also on her skin...so no shots today. First a round of antibiotics, eye cream and then back for her shots. It is he** getting old...as I know and my sweet Cookie now knows. :sad2:

    Has anyone tried the Online Check-In yet? I'm wondering if I check in now from Home if that will ruin my chances of my requests getting met:confused3

    I'm days away today, and not sure what to do, too may Choices :rotfl:

    Welcome back. Thanks for the review. So glad you enjoyed your stay at the CSR and that they were able to move you to a renovated room!

    i hope she feels better soon ~ hopefully the antibiotics and cream will do the trick

    you're right about getting old.. not a fun part in the whole aging process, for us and especially dogs.. they're so helpless that you can't help but feel sorry for them! :dog2:

    another question although I think it's been asked before....

    The marina is closed while we're at CSR so if I wanted to get a life jacket for a member of my family to use at the pool where would I get it from? Thanks!

    You can get life jackets at the pool (dig site). They have bins on the right hand side. They do however sometimes run out when it is busy.
    Have a good trip

    We used online check-in and our request was met. We requested being near the fitness center and were in Casita 4.

    renovations?? i heard nothing about renovations at CSR... What sections have been done? Does anyone know the schedule?

    i am going to be there for my honeymoon in October, and i REALLY would prefer not to be next to construction. Also, i am in a wheelchair and use a handicapped accessible room with a roll-in shower... does anyone know if these are spread out, or do they have them in one end of the hotel/one type of building (casita, etc)? I am a little confused, even though i am a disney veteran, so i am definitely looking for advice!

    We just got back from a crazy spring break trip to Disney, staying at CSR. Beautiful resort. We used online check in, which didn't speed anything up for us at our Saturday 5:00pm arrival. Actually, we had done online check in for 2 rooms, and something was screwed up with one room, so they had to redo check in anyway. Not worth it, in my opinion. We did get the requests we made - connecting rooms near the main pool - Rancho 7B.

    Our rooms were clean and our mousekeeper was awesome - for the first 5 days. She always did something fun for the kids in the window or on the bed. The last 2 days we must have had someone else and everything was still fine, but our coffee was not replenished...

    Our room location was great - very close to the quiet pool and a close walk to the dig site, which the kids absolutely loved - we spent many collective hours there. Also, it was a very reasonable walk to the main building. Our room wasn't redone, but it was fine.

    The only thing I didn't like about the location was that we were bus stop 4 - the buses were always full by the time they came to us - we either had to stand or didn't even get on! But, that was during crazy spring break (capacity-reaching) time :scared1:, it might be fine other times.

    We weren't crazy about the food offerings and missed the Pop/All-Star food courts - good variety and decent Disney prices. Pepper Market was cool, but just too expensive and not enough variety at the pool and Cafe Rix. The only downfall of an otherwise wonderful resort. We would definitely stay here again in a few years.

    Thanks for all the help on this thread prior to our leaving!!:)

    I will see if I can answer some for you. They started Reno's this past October and are scheduled to be completed this October. Cabana's I believe are completed, Casita, the top floor is done and I believe they are currently working over there now. Ranchos, I know there is some sections done just don't recall which ones.

    They are breaking the reno up by buildings, so not to disturb the guests. Since you are going in October, you may miss all of the reno work.

    As far as anything with the handicapped rooms, I am no help there. Maybe JamesLynn will be around sooner or later and can answer that.

    ETA... Ok, found this post from KatMark.

    Thanks! We decided to rent a car or take a cab when we have to, because of the wheelchair - i can't have people bump into me without hurting me, so buses seem like a bad idea!

    anyway, i am looking for advice on a QUIET area. Neither my soon-to-be-wife nor I are going to swim more than once, and we won't eat at the food court, so I am all for a quiet king room with a water view that is quiet! I don't need it close to bus, pool, or anything! I am all ears for ideas!

    6 months til the wedding! :bride::bride:

    If you aren't interested in being close to the food or pool, I would suggest the Ranchos. It is the LEAST requested area because it is the farthest from the food and pool and I have read that it is very quiet there.
