Thanks for the info! We are CBR lovers through and through but wanted to try a different resort in 2013. Since the beaches are our favorite part of the CBR, the thought of having at least a bit of a beach at the CSR is appealing. Our arrival date is May 22nd so maybe the convention won't have much of an affect on our stay. My 79 year old mother likes to spend time at the resort while we are in the parks. I want to make sure that she's comfortable with our resort choice. We would not be booking a preferred location but would like to request something near the food court so that she wouldn't have a long walk. Any suggestions?
