We just got back from a 6 night stay at CSR. We were thrilled with the resort, and for several reasons, liked it better than our last stay at AKL. We received our request of Cabanas 9B, and the location couldn't have been better. Close to the Dig site, and El Centro. We were a bit worried about the room size at a moderate, but it was more than enough room for our family of 4, and not noticably all that much smaller than our AKL room. The grounds are beautiful, the pool was awesome, and we loved Pepper Market. Ate lunch there 3 times, and considered it a great value for CS. On our first day, we were a bit worried about how crowded the resort seemed. We found out that many of the guests had been at the Tom Joyner show the night before. Even with lots of people, the resort was still quiet and peaceful. We went to PM on that first day, and it took about 10min to be seated because there was a line outside. Even with the crowds, we all got our food within 5 minutes, and the service was great. They had noticably more people working that day than the other days we ate there. Now to my admission. I am big enough to admit when I'm wrong, and this time I was way wrong. I posted this thread a while back: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1208675&referrerid=&highlight=drive I thought for sure we'd use our car as much as we did at AKL. On the first day, we went to AK. It was labor day and EMH. By noon the place was packed. (By our standards as we usually travel off season). We stayed too long with two cranky kids. We left to get to our hot car, and had to buckle in two screaming kids and drive back to the resort. The next day, we decided to take the bus. I'll just say that except for when we went to DTD, we took the bus everywhere from there on out. We never waited more than 5-10 minutes for a bus anywhere. The buses were completely empty with only 1-5 families on them ever except in the evening of 'the night of joy' concert when a couple of guys ended up standing. CSR transportation was fantastic, and even dh who has been a diehard 'we have to rent a car' guy said next time we'll use ME and forget about the car. Overall it was a great trip, at a wonderful hotel. I'd stay there again anytime.
