We will have 2 double strollers we will be getting on/off of the bus along with 1 single umbrella stroller. The double strollers will take up quite a bit of room. The umbrella stroller will be rather compact so not so worried about it. My concern is that depending on which bus stop we are at that the bus will be too full to get both double strollers on. We were thinking of requesting 8A or 8B. I think that would be a good location for us in proximity to the pool and dig site, but would that be a good choice for us in regards to order that we would get picked up on the bus route?
Congrats! Have a great trip!

Check out this post for room location.

Your optimal mailing time depends on your chosen carrier. Check with your carrier for specific timing advice. Don't use an address with a PO Box, it has to be a street address. Don't send it US MAIL, it will go to a central mail center and never be found until probably after your vacation

We are going to be there over Easter this spring. What are the chances of the room updates being complete by then?

Cabana 8b and 9a may have some lot views.
Thats a great tip Buzz, thankyou!
We are really leaning towards requesting Cabana 8a this trip, as we stayed in the Casitas last time and wanted something a little different this time.

Heres another question for those of you that have stayed in the Cabanas and used bus stop #4.

Did you find the buses to be more crowded being that bus stop #4 is the 3rd stop for theme park buses?
Thats just one small worry I have.

When we stayed in the Casitas, and were the first stop on theme park buses, it was great!!!

In my ten trips to CSR, I can count on one hand the number of times I had to stand on a bus. None from bus stop #3, a few times from bus stop #1 going to Epcot and a few times returning from a park.

You know this is just so amazing to me. I've stayed in the values the last two trips in Sept. and after the first trip I swore I would never ride another bus! We always stood and the waits to get on a bus were so long. We are staying at CSR this Sept. and now maybe I need to rethink my absolutely no bus thinking. It would be one less thing to worry about! Thanks for posting.

The only other time I've stayed on property was in 3/2001 at POR. But back then we never had any crowds on the busses and it was so easy to get anywhere we wanted to go. That's what really hooked us about staying on property.

Just trying to jusify my waterview room or swtich to standard. I really want a view of the lake. Thanks
Yes. I did pay for a waterview. We loved the view & I would probably do it again. We were in building 8B. It was a perfect area!

We were at bus stop 4. When we got on in the morning, we never had to stand. We did, however, have to stand twice on our way home from the parks.

Resort location suggestions please......

We will be coming to the CSR May 30-June 5. I have two DD's ages 3 and 5. I haven't put a room request in yet, but thinking about asking for Cabana 8a. Any other room suggestions? I'd like to be fairly close to the bus stop. Thanks in advance.

Bldg 8A or 8B are really good. We stayed in 8B and it was a great location. Close to the bus stop, main pool, and laundry. The walk to the main building wasn't bad either.
