    Do they look like they previously did with the bright colors -just larger beds or do they have a totally new look? Also what bath products do you get? Just shampoo and conditioner or other items? For regular rooms not the club level rooms. TIA

    They look quite a bit different. More contemporary with queen size beds, white comforters and big flat panel TVs.

    No, they have not. They just started the rehab in October and first did Cabanas 9B as that is all Club Level. They've completed the 4th floor of Casitas 1 and are working on 4th floor of Casitas 2 and 3 and Cabanas 9A. All rooms are to be completed by October 09.

    But wait! According to Buzz's site . . .

    "LATEST UPDATE!!! - All buildings in every village now have queen beds. The only rooms left with full size beds are the 100 rooms that will be converted to king size beds. These rroms are scattered throughout the resort. Cabana 9b (CLub Level rooms) has reopened and pictures of the redone rooms are filtering in. The room rehab has also begun in the casita section. Casita 1, 4th floor is done and the work has move to casita 2 & 3, 4th floor."

    Yes, the queen beds were done before October of this year. They then started on the painting, carpeting, curtains, furniture, etc.

    They look great! They are part of the reason we switched our reservation from CBR to CSR.

    Wow - those rooms don't look a lot like Disney. I guess its another refrub that turns a Disney hotel into a conference hotel. Just another reason I won't be staying at CSR

    I guess you haven't stayed at any WDW deluxe resort then because that's what they look like to me. I don't need a mickey head in my room to have a great time at Disney World. If you want Disney in your face, you best bet is a value.

    A lot of resort rooms don't look like Disney. We've stayed at the Poly and the Contemporary and those rooms are not Disney like at all. It's all a matter of personal taste/opinion. Personally, I don't need Disney 24/7. After spending all day at the parks, I choose to come back to my resort for a little relaxation.

    But that is what is so great about Disney...something for everyone.

    Actually I've stayed in almost every Deluxe hotel. To look like Disney to me they don't have to have mickey everywhere - but they do have to look different than every other business hotel that I stay at for work. To me the new Contemporary rooms, and now these, look like "work" hotels, which to some, is what they are. But I don't want to be reminded of work on vacation.

    I disagree about the Poly- they are themed and look a lot like a Disney resort to me.

    I don't see that at the Poly. I think the rooms are lovely and we really like Poly--they remind me of our honeymoon in Hawaii. I just don't like the cost. I have a very good friend who stayed at the AKL. He loved the resort but said he wouldn't stay there again. It drove him nuts with the Mickey heads in the carpet I believe is what he said. He wanted to relax when he got back to his resort from the parks, not see Mickey heads. But as I said that is why Disney offers so many different resorts--different tastes and opinions. And I am happy for that and have no problem with people who have a different opinion/taste than my own.
