    Thanks for the trip report! So glad that you had a good stay at CSR after the initial hiccup with your room. If you still want to let Disney know about the Korean CM that was so kind to your daughters, just google "how to thank a Disney CM" and you'll see various websites (some more official looking than others!) where you can make that happen.

    (On a side note, DD 14 and DD 17 also like K-pop bands and K-dramas, so they're curious which ones your DD's like and if they care to recommend any good ones. :goodvibes)

    I think they meant a newer update. At least that is what I am interested in. That convention starts on the 25th and there was talk about them all being replaced by then. The update a couple pages (pg 130) back is a week old, plenty of time for them to have gotten something done and create curiosity for a "new" update. I quote myself with new because by definition an update is new so it really is redundant to say a new update, lol. Anyway, I digress, I was looking for something more up to date since that convention is starting in 3 days.

    We check in to CSR Business Class on 8/31 and just got the letter today - very strange! :worried:

    Dated "August 2013" and addressed to "Dear Guest", part of it reads "If you have stayed with us before, you are most likely familiar with our in-room refrigerators. Recently we became aware of an issue that affects two of the refrigerator models in our Guest rooms. As a result, we decided to disconnect the affected in-room refrigerators until replacements can be installed.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you need assistance with a special request, please contact our Guest Services team at ......."

    :confused3


    The Mustang Club and Dream Cars conventions are there during our stay. :)

    Thank you for that update. I think some have reported that some of the business class rooms have been replaced, I hope that is the case for you and that they are just being conservative.

    :thumbsup2 We will be fine, with or without a fridge! ;)

    I was surprised the letter so generic....... no mention of our resort and I just found it funny that the letter stated "If You have stayed with us before....." :laughing: -- 6 to 8 times a year the last 12 or 13 years! :rotfl:

    My guess is that is a generic computer generated letter for people checking in during a certain time frame. I would expect you to have a fridge by then.

    Also, this convention was a last minute thing and it's possible that it triggered CSR becoming a bigger priority speeding up the original replacement schedule.

    We check in at CSR on 9/2, and we got that same form letter yesterday. :coffee: I don't think I'd feel right requesting a fridge when we don't absolutely "need" it, so we're just going to wait and see if we're one of the lucky ones... pixiedust:

    Hi. Lovely thread, lovely pictures. Just a question for clarification. Is a jr. suite considered club level or business class? Will it have access to the lounge? TIA.

    Same here. I'll be fine with or without.
    Then again I won't be there until November so it will probably not even be an issue anyway.

    Unless something has recently changed, the answer is no, Jr Suite is not Business Class and does not have Coconino Cove Lounge access.

    thank you, that's exactly what I meant, a newer update. I wanted to hear from people who either just returned or who were there right now to say if they had a working fridge or not. We arrive on 9/18 and we usually make a grocery run on our way so I don't want to show up with cold food and no fridge. :rolleyes1

    For some reason on the fridge report thread there is nothing listed for CSR which is confusing if I'm to believe the earlier report that 3/4 of the fridges have been replaced already.

    I was just informed this morning by a cm that all but one building's refrigerators are replaced. So chances are very good of having a refrigerator. I was not informed which building does not.

    I know what you mean. I have 3 children one being an infant. It I don't have a fridge I need to bring a cooler so I need to know before I get there. My trip isn't till October but I am the uber planner and like to know plenty ahead of time.

    We had no problems catching a bus from Cabana's (bus stop 4) we too like to be up and out early and the buses were never full when we hit the parks :) We stayed in block 8B (rooms 8500-8683) the bus stop was behind the block so not far to walk after a long day, a quiet pool and the laundry right next to the block too :goodvibes

    business class is only in one building and you pay extra for it. Jr. suites are a type of room like a king room and although they cost more and are bigger they are separate from business class. I do believe there is one jr. suite in the business class building but not sure of the cost difference.
