    Sangria will be mine!!!!! Can't wait! Thanks for report. Disappointed in no lunch service though. That would have been a nice stop for midday snack

    They may make changes to that in the future - hard to tell. This is still pretty new. Their thinking now is that people are at the parks all day and it isn't cost-effective to keep the lounge open all day. I guess if it keeps the cost reasonable, I'm OK with that! ;)

    :rolleyes1 I definitely put a dent in their sangria supply!! :rotfl2:

    Just found 2 more Lounge pictures that I had missed when I did the upload!

    This is what you see when you enter first thing in the morning! ;)

    I think this picture gives a little better perspective of the size of the Lounge:

    (remember, the time is an hour fast - this was around 9:15am)

    :confused3 I didn't notice any, but I drink my coffee black so it's not something I would have been interested in. Sorry.

    I think that online check-in would work best for you.

    I wouldn't use DME for my luggage. They say it can take up to 3 hours for the luggage to get to your room and at that time of night that is fairly accurate. My last stay I arrived a little after 8pm. It took all of 3 hours for my luggage to arrive. I would rather have had it and gone to bed then stay up and wait for it.

    Thanks for the encouragement to book CSR over POR this year. I almost pulled the trigger a few minutes ago on a King Water view + Dining but wanted to ask a couple of additional questions.

    First, if I book now and they later announce reduced rates or free dining would I be able to rebook to take advantage? It's not a huge deal if not but just thought I'd ask.

    Also, what are the chances of getting stuck in the Ranchos? I'm going to request Casitas 4 or 5 first and hope for the best. The other Casitas and some of the Cabanas would be ok but I really just don't like the way the Ranchos look and don't want to end up there.

    Yes, I would call in a request for Cabanas ahead of time.

    I'd also go ahead and collect your bags at MCO. We did it that way and it's much easier than having the bags delivered just after you fall asleep! Also, a bit easier falling asleep, knowing that everything has arrived.

    Not to sound greedy, but are you allowed to grab a couple of bottles of water before heading to the park or do they limit that in the lounge?

    Absolutely! Glad you found some of the photos useful! :thumbsup2


    :thumbsup2 You will have to report back -- as this is still so new, there are likely to be little changes made here and there! The CMs are listening to guest feedback. ;)


    They're the small (8 oz) water bottles and I don't remember seeing them in the morning; just out for the evening snack service (and only a few out at a time). :confused3 I suppose it wouldn't hurt to ask the CMs if you could take some bottles with you. :)

    Does anyone know if the CSR is going MagicBand bracelets yet or if they still use the key cards?
