Isn't it funny how new makes us worry?
I loved Fort Wilderness when we were there.
I don't really remember a lot of Polynesian, but POP was nice too.
Loved POFQ.
We'll see what CSR does. I'm hoping just the fact it's Disney and not home, I'll be loving it.

Our room only reservation is at pofq garden view and didn't request a wheelchair assesable room since it was only for one night.
In addition to online check-in for POR, there is a Riverside FAQ thread. Andre actually has the fax number for the resort where, even after online check-in, you can fax your request over to [hopefully] get the requests you want. It does help, trust me.

I've never stayed at CSR and when we were deciding where to go I thought "nah" but FD took me from POFQ. So I'm hoping that the CM makes me love CSR.

When I was calling to switch my reservation to FD, the CM said "well aren't you like most people and will only be there to sleep?" and my answer was pretty much yes because if we go to the pool it might be an hour out of the day. Tooo much to do for me to sit by the pool all week.

My most worry was where to catch the bus, but since each section has a bus stop.....no problem.

We loved POFQ stayed there 2x but I loved CSR more, the pool is great, foods choices very good, and general feel of resorts and rooms are more of a Deluxe feel IMO. I think you will fall in love. We stayed in Casita 1 and loved the location!

I love trying new resorts because it is like visiting again for the first time. I'm a little sad now that I changed from the Poly to BWI when Fall Discounts came out because this will be our 3rd stay at BW. Yesterday I brought up about changeing and was given the thumbs down but as excited as I am about going back to BWI I love it there, a part of me wants to try someplace new.

Your going to have a great trip!

Just FYI, if you haven't seen it already, the DisUnplugged Podcast very recently did CSR as part of their "7 in 7" resort tour, and they were VERY impressed. They said it was "a deluxe resort wrapped in a moderate price tag". Just thought you might want to check it out. :-)

Also, 69 DAYS!!! How does that feel so much closer than 70? I can tell that I'm going to want to start packing soon, but I not sure I'm willing to give dh that kind of ammo to tease me with later. LOL

Well I am not all that excited about MB and FP+
Already told DH if we get the option that would be his responsibility to figure that out. So not into technology other than my laptop internet and basic use of my smart phone.

Thanks for the fingers crossed. It's Disney I can't see why I wouldn't love it. I think it's more the worry have trying to figure things out instead of just going and doing what I know. Precious time that might feel wasted. I'm sure I'll love it.

Yes I agree about the "first time" feeling. I guess it's more because I don't have the freedom to go as often as I would like to go. DS21 has Autism so packing up to just go is complicated. So each time I go I'm not sure if it's my last time. I have to just keep reminding myself it's Disney and not home.

Someone mentioned that to me before and I lost the information. I'm a little more "able" to figure the forums out now, maybe I can figure out the whole podcast thing and check it out. Thanks for the of the impressed. I'm hoping it meets up to those reviews in my eyes. I tend to be a simple person enjoying the less lavish but nice to get a little spoiled. Heck I've loved all my stays so far.

And to quote mrsap "What do you mean there are other places to vacation besides Disney?!" I love this! Do you know how many times I have heard this comment. dah! They so don't get it!

Thinking about this more, I told DH that maybe I'll stop going to Disney when I've stayed and experienced all the resorts.

Have a magical day everyone!

Oh ya, I'm at 69 and I don't feel much different than 70.
But I think I'll go practice pack.

I have been going back and forth about faxing a request. In all our years at Disney we've never faxed just put our request in when we made the reservation. After reading the POR Riverside thread there seems to be lots of people faxing and getting their requests.

So FigmentChick you have done this in the past?

I couldn't agree more and even though we are gong to miss POFQ, DD and I are really excited about staying in a new resort and the royal rooms

Hopefully you can visit the Poly while you're there for dinner, shopping or fireworks on the beach.
