    I didn't take any pictures and not sure if the WDW website has any. I found pictures at the Unofficial CSR website.

    Reviving this thread to see if anyone else has stayed recently. I'm wondering about the turndown service now since PP reported she did not receive it. This is an advertised benefit of business class on the web site, and one I would be interested in. Hoping to get some more reports!

    I will try to remember to report back with our review and pics when I get back, but I'm hoping to hear from some Jan/Feb travelers before we go to get me excited!

    Are they usually pretty good about having the entire spread out by 7AM? I'm asking because we're hard core about extra magic hours and would definitely need to be able to get to the bus stop by 7:20ish just to be safe.

    In previous reports I've read fruit, cheese/crackers, chips/salsa, etc. Just snacks like this.

    *Posted this on the CSR thread as well*

    Checking in Live from CSR!!! I checked in at 12:45pm and the room was ready (King Business Class). The lounge was closed so I didn't have a chance to check it out till about 7pm and when I did, the key did not work. I walked back to the front desk and the CM never checked the box for club access so after new room keys were printed, it was good!

    Our room is a bottom floor room facing the lake in 9B. We are very close to the bus stop and main building. It's raining now so I didn't have a chance to check out the pool but I've seen it many times before and love it!

    Room looked clean..even the top of the closet which is good! I'm going to ask for more shampoo/cond/ shower gel tomorrow and see if we get it.

    The lounge is fantastic and there was no one in there when I went back at 9:30pm. I had two Sangria's (one of which to go). They gave me bowls to take snacks back for my DBF who's arriving from Nashville later tonight. They also gave me bottles of water to take back and went above and beyond even after knowing I was a fellow CM (believe it or not, some CMs will treat you differently if they know you are one too..odd I know.)

    The snacks that were there at 7pm and 9:30pm were:

    Chips (various ones), crackers, cheese, veggie platter, dips for chips + veggies, chocolate covered pretzels, spicy snack mix, regular pretzels, and fresh fruit.

    Drinks: cans of diet coke, coke, orange, and sprite (I think), Perrier (sp?), and the small bottles of water (like what you get with kid's meals). They also had hot tea and the fancy coffee maker. White and Red sangria which was great, Bud Light, Heineken, Yungling, plus red and white wine (don't know brands).

    CM's said that the menu is always subject to change but there was no hot food served like in the Deluxe Club Levels.

    I haven't had breakfast yet but the CMs said it's a good spread and worth the extra $20 for the breakfast plus the alcohol. They cannot accept tips for service.


    The resort seems to be pretty busy which I'm sure is due to Valentine's Day and President's Day in the same weekend.





    That's pretty much it for now!!!

    I have to be at work tomorrow by 7:30 (teacher in the area) and so I will be able to let you know what is out at 7am because I'll have to be in there right as they open! So stay tuned!

    I'm booked business class for later this month, not looking for a meal there, just a beverage, some snacks and the ability to print my boarding pass since I'm not bringing a computer. We need to remember this is business class, not concierge and when I booked, they did tell me about the limited hours during the day.

    IMO you can't make the snacks at this club level a meal unlike the Deluxe Resort ones. They do have a computer and I'm sure a printer but I didn't look but I can!

    The hours are breakfast 7-10am and evening is 5-10pm. All the CMs have been very nice and enjoy getting to know guests and what we are doing for the day!

    They will print boarding passes for you at the concierge desk in the main lobby

    cartons of milk (skim, one, and whole) are at breakfast as well as juice that you can pour yourself. I'm sure if you wanted it for the evening they would just grab some from the back for you.

    I brought my resort mug in today and filled it with coffee but you could do the same with the juice and milk cartons as well! Looking forward to more Sangria when they open at 5! :)

    sweet!!! thanks so much for the great update!!

    we're staying here in early May & can't wait!! :yay: we originally had rooms booked at POFQ but it burned me that it wasn't included in the spring discount so i looked elsewhere & CSR came recommended. once i saw they had business level & read up on it, i was sold :)

    quick question though for you all...we're a family of 4. will we automatically get the rooms with the 2 queen beds or should be putting this in as a request? i REALLY don't want to end up with just 1 king :confused:

    If you have 4 people in one room you will get a room with two queen beds. Unlike the values which you can't pay for a king bed, you have to at CSR so unless you pay for a king (or get a surprise upgrade)..as long as you have 3 or 4 people in the room you have to have a room with two queen beds.

    I wish the lounge was open past 10pm. We don't usually make it back to the resort before then. I was ALL about business class until I saw how early they closed up :(
