    We just returned Wednesday from a week at CSR:thumbsup2
    We had an awesome vacation and the resort was fabulous. It was so peaceful, quiet and relaxing
    We stayed at POR last year and switched to CSR this year.
    Loved both places, but I have to say the Queen beds at CSR made a huge difference at night sleeping with little ones.

    Happy to report the Pepper Market was very good...We ate there twice, all stopped at different stations and had absolutely no problems (I was a little worried about PM after all the reviews here on the DIS)

    Kids LOVED the Dig Site. I cant count how many times they went down the Jaguar slide. The huge Hot Spa pool was also a big hit almost every night.

    Bus service was awesome:thumbsup2 I found the bus situation much better than POR last year. I don't think any of the bus rides felt like more than 10 minutes.

    Here are some pics

    Love the photos (may I copy and paste some of them in the CSR photo thread?). I'm thrilled that you loved your stay at the CSR.

    Love the photos! Thanks for sharing them! They're making me so excited for our first trip to CSR in May! And the queen beds are exactly why we chose this moderate resort over the others. When you have to sleep with the kids, that extra little space makes a big difference - especially when they kick at night! :goodvibes

    Great pics. CSR has been one of those resorts I haven't really shown much interest in....but your pics really make me want to try it. The pool area and playground look lots of fun.

    Hello!

    We just returned from CSR also, and loved the resort and the queen size beds but were not happy with the bus situation. We waited for over an hour on Tuesday AM for a bus to MK. In the evenings it would usually take us over an hour to get home b/c they simply didn't run enough buses. On Tuesday afternoon, while trying to get back to the hotel from MK we watched Beach Clb have 3 buses while we waited 20 minutes for one. My DH has decided we will not be staying at this resort again. I am surprised no one else had this. Anyone? On the flip side, once we were at the parks, it was great, they were empty and we had an AWESOME time.

    I can't comment personally on the buses as we rent a car and drive to all the parks (we did use a bus once on our trip in September just to experience and we waited less than 5 minutes at 6 p.m. for a MK bus and there were two buses waiting when we left the MK at 11:00 at night). However, in all of the posts I've read on the CSR, 75% of the time I've read great reviews of the bus service. I know it can be hit or miss at any resort (and the reason we drive); the worse bus service we had was at the All-Star Sports when we used buses for that trip.

    Absolutely!! Your thread helped me a lot and I'm glad we stayed at CSR:thumbsup2

    Wow...No we did not have have any issues like the ones you mentioned. :eek:

    I don't think we waited any more than 10-15 minutes at most for any bus.

    Coming back after Wishes it was really crowded and we had to wait for at least 3 CSR busses before we got on, but it was just as crowded at all the resort bus stops.

    The queen beds were the deciding factor for us as well:thumbsup2 Really happy with our decision in the end.
    POR was beautiful as well and we also loved our stay there last year...but sleeping with a 7 year old in a double bed:sad2::sad2:

    I agree. We were there last year around the 2nd week of December and some times we waited 30 - 45 minutes for a bus and others were getting 2 or 3. We decided never again at this resort.

    We just got back last night from a week at CSR and also experienced a couple of transportation issues, but only to MK. On Monday we waited over 45 minutes and on Wednesday about 40 minutes. Busses from MK and to/from all of the other parks were fine. We asked a few cast members but no one could/would explain the MK bus problem.
