Here is a link to the conventions we know are going to be there the remainder of this year: http://www.disboards.com/showthread....vention+update

In any event, I would not worry about it. The conventioneers are in meetings all day leaving the buses and pool less crowded. We've stayed seven times and there has always been a convention and we have never had any issues with them being there.

Iced tea in coffe maker

Anyone ever make iced tea in the resort coffee pot? I have done it once or twice in my coffee maker at home when my iced tea pot was broken. Didn't notice a coffee taste at all. Just wondering how many tea bags to put in?

I am so looking forward to palm trees and the scenery at CSR (we are from western Pa and it is still practically winter here), I don't think we will mind the walk to the main building for breakfast.
We will be there with our 4 & 6 year old on May 9th. We are looking for the same area, close to the Dig Site for the mid-day swim & nap.

I must admit with all of the planning I am hoping I will be the one at the pool saying 'Yeah' & not he one looking like a deer in headlights thinking why did we do this.

Just got Back 4/14/2009

Hi everyone I just got back from my CSR stay 4/7-4/14.I loved the resort it was my first time there.I loved all the food at the pepper market,Cafe rx,and loved the maya grill.The service was great and the staff was terrific.I had two renovated connecting rooms which were beautiful and slept great on the queen beds.My only complaints would be mouse-keeping and my requests.I did not get any animal towels for the kids and the beds were never made as nice as when we first arrived.They looked like someone slept on top of them and they where not tucked in.The furniture was never cleaned nor were the bathroom counters.I tipped really well everyday too.I stayed at ranchos 6A I requested 9B cabanas 3 months ago when I originally made my reservations so I was a little disappointed at that.Online check in did not save us any time so don't bother.My Garden grocery delivery went smoothly bell services kept it nice and cold in there refrigerator , My orlando stroller rental was waiting in bell services and the box I shipped down was also waiting for me in the business center.Everything went according to plan.

I thought the landscaping and the peacefulness was wonderful after a day at the parks it was a God send.I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.I did not see glen the alligator and we tried really hard to find him.

All in all we loved our time at the resort.

I concur. The pressed pot Kona coffee at the Poly is so good. I did not try the coffee in the room either. More of a reason to head over to the Pepper Market to use my refillable mug.

Thanks for your report. I will address the towel animals and the fact you did not get Cabanas 9B. First, the towel animals are not a guarantee at any resort. Some mouskeepers do not know how to make them. This is just something special that happens--there is never a guarantee. As for 9B, it could be that there was a convention going on while you were there and if that was the case you would not get Cabanas 9B as it is reserved for convention guests because of the Club Service offered there for them.

I hope you called the front desk or went to the front desk or called mousekeeping and complained. There is no excuse for not dusting the furniture or the bathroom counter.

And that is why we love CSR's refillable mug. It is bigger than the others and holds more coffee--which DH loves. The coffee is pretty darn good at the Pepper Market and there cappucinos, while not Starbucks, aren't bad either.

Sorry to hear about Mousekeeping. I did find the furniture in the room dusty the day we checked in. I wiped down all the counters and the following day I noticed they were dusty again. It dawned on me that the Duvets are down or goose feather so when mousekeeping fixes the bed, the feather dust goes all over the place. Glad you had a great trip though.

Besides the great size ...We love CSR refillable mugs because they are the only ones still unique to the resort...not crazy about the generic mugs of the last couple of years - we don't get why guiests like those mugs.

I took my refillable mug to work and use it all day long. Too bad that it does not fit in my cars cup holder. But you are 100 percent correct about then being bigger than the others.
