Thanks...I kind of noticed that too...just a crack of the smile. I may be prejudice, but he is a nice looking kid and has a great smile. But I told him he's really got to get rid of the earrings!

He'll probably grow out of the earrings. I had 6 holes (i know weird) when I was his age. Then I went to just wearing 3.. then to 1... then to 0. I haven't had one in for about 5 years.

Between the earrings, three tattoos and the growth on his face (he won't shave until the Blackhawks are out of the playoffs), I told him I wouldn't claim him as my own. But, luckily, I love the stink pot, so I've kept him all these years (he'll be 21 in three weeks).

Yes, there is still a fridge. It is on the far left of the dresser behind the pull out door.

The fact that they switched the table and chairs over to a desk is really the only thing that I am not happy about so far that I have heard. I am really looking forward to staying at CSR in Aug...but I really like having a table. I'll get over it though...it is Disney after all!

Ok, as I said earlier we just got back from 8 days at CSR. First impression was just wonderful, our CM Scott, was great at online check in. I was finishing his list of things before he had a chance. We arrived at 1:30pm and when I did the online bit, I put we would get in around 11:30am. Our room's weren't ready, but he gave us the first 2 numbers of the room. So we knew we were in Rancho 6B, which is renovated. We went and moved our car over to the area and then walked up to Pepper Market for a late lunch. First impression wasn't very good. The food we ordered just didn't taste good, but we also chalked that up to the fact we had just drove 20 hours to CSR. Dh and I tried it later in the week and it did taste better. Thou a few Pepper Market employees didn't seem to know much about the mugs.

Once we were done eating our room's were ready, oh we didn't fax in a request. We just stuck with our request of conecting rooms that we placed when we booked. We did get that request. The room's were nice, a few minor picks. The paint on the conecting doors was already peeling off. There was what looked like dark paint splattered on the wall behind the sliding door in our room.

also the beds were no way queen beds at least in the rooms we had. We have a queen at home and the beds at CSR seemed real small.

Over all we loved the resort and would definatly stay there again. We are actully trying to figure out when to go again.

I thought that too about the beds when we were there, but I think it was jsut because I am not used to seeing two of them side by side in that space. They were definitely bigger than the doubles that were there before though b/c we were in a non rennovated room and they were bigger than the old haedboards.

I thought of something else I was going to share. Bus Service to and from parks was good, we were at bus station 3 (or stop 2). We only had to stand one time other wise plenty of room. The only park that we had problems with the buses was Epcot, to and from. We had to wait forever for buses running to Epcot. Then when leaving we had to wait almost an hour for a bus after 3 buses went by that said CSR. One of the guest chased them down and was told "Oops I have the wrong resort listed" In 90 degree heat it was a little annoying.

On the beds we thought it was because of 2 beds in the room, but the bed just fit different then our bed at home. Thou they were very comfy, made us realize how badly we need a new bed at home.

Kathy, I love the picture and congratulations to Markie on his hard work and achievement! Looks like a smile to me! Of course my own son (14) hasn't smiled even that big since he decided it wasn't cool to smile.

Oh man, I look at these CSR pictures and I just weep that I am not staying there in June.

Thanks, Amy. It's a "little" smile (probably because I was pinching his butt to make him smile!). Yeah, I think it is a thing with boys and smiling.

Yes, the pictures are making me weep too. I'm pretty sure we'll be cancelling our trip this year and having to wait until 2010. Just not going to be in the cards this year.

Sorry to hear you may be cancelling Kathy. Hope it somehow works out in the end and you get to go this year.

Congrats on your vacation! I know you were really looking forward to this. We'll join you at Coronado in just a few days. I fax my requests tomorrow.
