We have stayed at the other moderate Disney resorts as well as OKW. We have come to realize that we are drawn to the tropical atmosphere of CBR and OKW. PORFQ just didn't "feel" right to us. So we need to make our reservations and we're thinking of trying CSR. In looking at the pictures of the resort, the cabanas area is very resemblant to CBR's atmosphere. The Casitas also look good...however we really have no interest in the Ranchos area. It is just way too stark and desert-y for our tastes. I realize that we are only talking about the exterior environment since all rooms look the same, but it seems to make a difference to my family. How likely are you to get a room in an area requested? Are you better off specifying to NOT be put in Ranchos or asking TO be put in Casitas or Cabanas? Or will it even matter? I have not had great luck in my past "requests" at CBR so I'm a bit apprehensive.
