Minnie&Nana, one of the regular DIS posters, has a phone number for special services which you can call so you can explain that and they can help with getting a room near where you want to be. Unfortunately, Christine (Minnie&Nana) has been sick the last two days and has not been on. I'm going to try to find the phone number but, in the meantime, I am posting your question to her in a PM and hopefully she'll be back here by tomorrow (we miss her!).

I have Lupus which causes me a lot of foot and leg pain, so I was wondering the same thing. If you could pass that information along to me as well, I would REALLY appreciate it

Okay, I found the info. I know Christine (Minnie&Nana) will not mind that I copied it here while she is not around:

If your mom has any special need(s), please call Special Resort Needs asap (have your reservation number ready for them): 407-939-7807 # 1 .

These CM's will block a room to be sure any needs your mom may have will be met. They are wonderful and there to help!

Even if she does not require a handicap room, they can help - just explain her needs to them.


Please note this is not strictly for a "mom"...I just copied Christine's previous post answering another DISer.

Need help!!!!

Okay, guys, as you'll see when I post this, we are on Page 247 of this thread. This thread will close when it reachesh 250 pages. You'll see from another thread that I started, that I've been asked to start a new CSR FAQ Thread (I'm taking a poll to see if you guys want me to or if you think someone else is better equipped). But, in the meantime, if anyone reading this thread is coming back to write a review or post pictures, I'm asking you to open a new thread for the time being. If I decide to star the NEW FAQ thread (which I probably will from the voting so far), I am going to need a couple of days to get it put together. In the meantime, I don't want this thread to be closed before I can at least start the new one. Therefore, questions can be posted here (or started in a new thread as well), but I'd appreciate reviews/pictures be posted separately just for the time being.

Thanks all!

I definitely think you are more than qualified to start a new thread - and I can't wait for September when I finally have something to contribute!


I do have a related question also - is a week too early to fax in room requests? I know most people suggest 3-5 days, but I only have access to a fax machine at work, and my last day at work is the the Wednesday before my wedding, and we aren't leaving for Disney until the following Tuesday.

We overheard 1 family discussing the difference and they were all saying how much more they liked the CSR-they had a younger kid with them-10ish-who was talking about the pool. The pool was so neat there! I would totally go with the CSR, but that's ok
We had the same experience in March! Most of the bus got off at either Pop or CBR but it was only my little "party" (me, dd11 and ds 5 months) and another 3 person family that got off at CSR!

I can do that! I'll tell Jackie at the bar to make me a "special" Margarita just for Ms. Daisy! Having an adult beverage for someone is my specialty!

There are fax machines available at any office supply store (like Staples, Office Depot/Max.) Would this be a viable option?

I'm not sure if a week is too far in advance, I've never done a room request before. But I thought I'd offer an alternative suggestion in the meantime.

It's an option, but my concern is that in the days I took off before the wedding, sending the fax might not take the top priority if there are other things to get done, you know?

When it comes down to it, my main thing I want is to be somewhere in Casita's 3-5 and a renovated room, so if I don't send it ahead of time, I could always ask when we arrive if they have anything like that available, and hope for the best.

I have a quick question...

Has (or will) EVERY room at CSR be renovated to look something like this? :

http://images.photos.walmart.com/232...84642327nu0mrj

or do some still (and are they going to remain) like this? :

(found the pics in the room picture thread)
