    Is the Pepper Market all buffett now? If not, could someone please explain it to me -we were there last December, but I understand it has changed since then. Also, what are the kids/adult buffett prices? Thanks for any help!

    In 2011, we had the pleasure of staying in all 3 sections of CSR. With strollers and wheelchairs it is actually easier to stay at the cabanas. The cabanas are level to the ground, so all points of entry and exit are ground level and no problem for a stroller or wheel chair. We stayed in Casitas 5 and the ground is elevated. Our room was right at 2 different sets of steps, one lakeview and one courtyard view, but the ramps were furthest from our room. We ended up carrying the wheelchair down the steps and helping ds down them.

    The Ranchos are also ground level, and it was easy getting around there with a wheel chair.

    We are here now and although I like the resort it's difficult to navigate.....maybe I should have kept my preferred room instead of moving to one behind main pool (did this for my daughter). Mistake we have gone to the pool only once!!! And room is a good piece from bus stop. But we do LOVE pepper market breakfast not so much the dinner we haven't been here for lunch (always in the parks). Not sure I'd stay here again my next resort will be contemporary I HOPE but that will be a while or art of amimation.

    Are you in the Ranchos? Building 6B? 6B and 2 are the 2 buildings I would never want to be placed in. Both of them could have you in "no man's land"

    Our last stay at CSR (May 2012) we were in room 9127 in 9A. We used the quiet pool in that building instead of the pool at the Dig Site. We had the pool to ourselves most of the time!!

    Hi - we are stating for the first time in December. If we buy a refill mug where can we fill it up if Pepper Market is only buffet? :)

    We will be at CSR in 8 days. We always stay deluxe, and this will be our first time at a moderate. We are doing a split stay with BC CL. I'm nervous and excited about it all at the same time.

    You will be fine. I'm glad we tried this resort it is very very quiet but not sure we will be back I may have preferred the preferred room instead of this one near the pool. Dragging stroller up and down stairs and not near ice machine or drink machine is a bummer.....I write this as I am in the room at the moment.

    I just booked my first CSR stay for April. We booked a preferred room . But we want to stay in 9 .. Is building 9 not a preferred building? If not is it standard? I know requests aren't always granted but I definitely don't want to spend an extra $200 for a room that is standard..

    Returned home from a 9 night stay last night. We were in 7B, a hike to the main action but the room was very quiet which was nice! It was the quietest stay we've had at any WDW resort.

    Bus service was good overall, though twice we waited about 30 minutes for an Epcot bus. Most times, it was 10 minutes or less. We used Bus Stop 4 and with the exception of two times (one was on the way home from MNSSHP) we always had a seat on the bus.

    We saw the gator at CSR! We've been 'gator hunting' at WDW for years, and this was the first time we saw a gator!

    The preferred rooms at CSR are in Casitas 1, 2 and 3 only.

    We have an alligator again? :thumbsup2 I hope he is still there when we get there in December.

    I'm glad you had a good trip.

    He was under the bridge you'd take if you were walking from El Centro to the Ranchos area.

    I really want to book here but one thing that is holding me back is the breakfast options. I don't want to eat the buffet every day b/c it would be too much food/dining credits. How is the cafe rix? I heard the lines are really long. My dd and I are hypoglycemic and we can't eat a late breakfast in the parks.
