    And all I can say is WOW! This was 4 day girls' trip with my sis, DH and I own DVC and I didn't want to use weekend points so I was able to snag an AP rate at CSR.

    The beauty of this resort started right as soon as I walked thru doors, with the lovely fountain and amazing ceiling art. After about 5 minutes we were on our way to room in Cabanas 9B. During the short walk to our room we were blown away with this resort. We decided to walk around the lake to see the whole resort and it was stunning. Everything was clean and the landscaping was gorgeous.

    Our room was spotless, themed wonderfully and everything was in great shape.

    After the total chaos we experienced at the counter service locations in the parks during off-peak times (15 minutes just to place an order) we decided to give the Pepper Market a try. It was nice to be seated by a friendly CM and have our drinks brought to us in our refillable mugs and the food was great! As a matter of fact, EVERY CM we came across was helpful and polite.

    Bus service was terrific, we literally never waited more than 10 minutes. Even after we just missed a bus at Epcot another one was there in 7 minutes.

    And I would like to give a special "thank you" to buzz. I know that you've heard it before, but I would've never considered CSR if it wasn't for your incredbile site. :love:

    My only regret is that I didn't have enough time to try all the amenities that CSR had to offer, but there's always next time!

    So glad you had a great time and enjoyed CSR. It is our very favorite moderate, in fact we stayed at BC last August and I wished we'd just gone back to CSR instead. Can't wait to return... Thanks for the report!!! :goodvibes

    We have decided to stay at CSR next August. Im so glad we have, as the reports from people coming back, and Buzz's great thread have persuaded me that we have made the right decision.
