    How do I address a package I am mailing to myself at the Resort?
    Does CSR have room service and is it included in the QSDP?

    question re: refillable mugs...

    I've read that you can't refill it yourself and a cm must do it for you, is this correct? Even at cafe rix and siesta's?

    Siestas, the CM's do it. Cafe Rix, you do it.

    Just returned from WDW today.. Stayed in 8A lakeside at CSR. While I was there this week Disney was renovating the rooms in 8B. The new furniture was being moved in as we left on Thursday.

    thanks! what about Pepper Market? or has cafe rix become the place for refilling for people who are just refilling and not purchasing food? did that make any sense? :rotfl:

    Cafe Rix is the place if you are just refilling.

    We just changed our resort from the Pop to Coronado Springs. Thanks for all the great information! We will be traveling Easter Week with a grand gathering. We will have 12 people in our group - 6 of them will be kids. Their ages are 10, 6, 5, 5, 2, & 2. We will have 2 double strollers we will be getting on/off of the bus along with 1 single umbrella stroller. The double strollers will take up quite a bit of room. The umbrella stroller will be rather compact so not so worried about it. My concern is that depending on which bus stop we are at that the bus will be too full to get both double strollers on. We were thinking of requesting 8A or 8B. I think that would be a good location for us in proximity to the pool and dig site, but would that be a good choice for us in regards to order that we would get picked up on the bus route?

    If mobility is an issue for a member of our party and we need to be close to the main pool and a bus stop, are the cabanas the best location?

    Can we note this on our reservation?

    Your optimal mailing time depends on your chosen carrier. Check with your carrier for specific timing advice. Don't use an address with a PO Box, it has to be a street address. Don't send it US MAIL, it will go to a central mail center and never be found until probably after your vacation

    We are going to be there over Easter this spring. What are the chances of the room updates being complete by then?

    Thats a great tip Buzz, thankyou!
    We are really leaning towards requesting Cabana 8a this trip, as we stayed in the Casitas last time and wanted something a little different this time.

    Heres another question for those of you that have stayed in the Cabanas and used bus stop #4.

    Did you find the buses to be more crowded being that bus stop #4 is the 3rd stop for theme park buses?
    Thats just one small worry I have.

    When we stayed in the Casitas, and were the first stop on theme park buses, it was great!!!

    In my ten trips to CSR, I can count on one hand the number of times I had to stand on a bus. None from bus stop #3, a few times from bus stop #1 going to Epcot and a few times returning from a park.

    You know this is just so amazing to me. I've stayed in the values the last two trips in Sept. and after the first trip I swore I would never ride another bus! We always stood and the waits to get on a bus were so long. We are staying at CSR this Sept. and now maybe I need to rethink my absolutely no bus thinking. It would be one less thing to worry about! Thanks for posting. :goodvibes

    The only other time I've stayed on property was in 3/2001 at POR. But back then we never had any crowds on the busses and it was so easy to get anywhere we wanted to go. That's what really hooked us about staying on property.
