You don't have to bring your own, as stated previously they provide you with coffee pods. However, I prefer to bring my own coffee and filters because it tastes better and I am too grumpy in the morning to walk to the main building for real coffee.

Hey everyone, I have a question. We have a king bed room reserved for our stay at CSR in May. I had seen on AllEars.net that there are only around 200 king rooms. Are they scattered throughout the resort or are they all in one area? Also, is there a possibility of a king bed room with a water view? We would love a view of the lake

Thanks so much! This thread has been so helpful!

The king rooms are spread around the resort. They are eventually adding 100 more king rooms. I know there are waterview rooms with king beds (we had one last year), but waterview rooms cost more than a standard.

Thanks!
The microwaves are first come first served. I do not know if there is a charge. There is a microwave in the Pepper Market that you can use. There is a fridge in every room--no charge. I always fax about three days before our trip (and always have our request on our original reservation as well).

Yay! I'm glad to finally have found the CSR FAQ thread again!

I've only been to CSR once (last May) but we will be having our 2nd stay this coming May. Can't wait!

Anyway, I'm no CSR expert or anything, but we did fall in love with the place while we were there this past year. I'm happy to share our pictures and any answers I may know. I'm subscribing and I'll check in often.

Thanks, KatMark for your leadership!

Alan

Hi! I thought I saw a post saying there was a bus going directly to Downtown Disney? I've read soo many different threads...I've confused myself

Can someone give me info on getting to DD? Any suggestions on what to see/do there would be great too!

MANY Thanks!

An interesting side note about them adding king rooms. Last Feb. I stayed in 9625 with a friend (two doubles). This Feb. I stayed in the SAME ROOM with my DH. The renovated room was a King. Kind of freaky that it was the same room though .

Oh....I don't know if I'm the leader, but I will certainly continue to answer questions and add things as I find them out.

That is so weird that you got the same room!

Yes there is a bus that goes directly to DTD. It takes quite a while though and during the day stops at Typhoon Lagoon first.

She does eat dairy she is not vegan. My son I only restricted him from colored ices, candies, beverages so he was easier to feed.
This is really encouraging, thank you for posting! I was getting worried that my MIL and FIL weren't going to be happy with their food options this trip. We're getting the QSDP for one room but not for theirs. They don't eat enough. Anyway, should she just ask at one of the food counters for a vegetarian meal? She's a little hard of hearing, so I'll probably have to help her.

Buzz, keep the reports coming. Thanks for sharing your vacation (and love of CSR) with us!!

Ooh, two of my kids will be first timers. Do we mention that at check-in? They would think buttons were cool.
