Would you happen to know if internet in the rooms is wireless?
Yes, the Ranchos are 2 or 3 stories.

Yes, there is High Speed Internet Access in the room available for a daily charge. No, I do not know the charge. My DH would kill me if I brought a computer on vacation!

The access charge is $11.95 for 24 hours. It was pretty easy to set up (edit - the connection is by cable -- a network cable is kept in a bag in the "closet" area. I believe there is wireless near the convention area). I took a laptop so we could download and look at pictures each day. We did stay in the Ranchos by the way, building 6A, refurbed room (yay!). We loved the fact that it was close to the main pool.

Ciao!

The toll is only $1 and it really shortens the route. It's WAY faster. You'll take an exit for Disney World (Hartzog Road, #8). Then, you turn left at the end of the exit ramp and that road becomes Western Way. Follow that road through the Disney gates and it dead-ends right next to CSR. You'll turn L onto Buena Vista Dr and L at the first light, into CSR. It's SO EASY.
Thank You so much!

Just got my first set of documents

for our August trip.

I had made a mistake online and when I called to correct it the very sweet CM recommend Cabanas 9A or 9B for us. It was right there on the reservation.

It's $9.95 not $11.95.

You can access wireless at any of these locations at a $9.95 charge:
Hotel Lobby
Dig Site
Durango Foyer
Fiesta Foyer
Yucatan Foyer
Laguna Bar

I would think so. It usually only takes a little less than a month to refurb a building. As the refurb just started, I can't really guess exactly how long it's going to take.

Casitas 2 and 3 are also very nice. Keep in mind that only the 4th floor of those buildings have been rehabbed.

Casitas 3 sits on the lake side, while Casitas 2 sits behind it.
I prefer 3 because I think that it had better standard views than 2.

5. I read somewhere on the boards that the internal transportation with the golf carts is going to be taken away. Is that really true, and if so, do you know when that will be?

Thanks a bunch!!!!!
To answer questions 1 & 5.

1. There are elevators in all of the buildings.

5. The golf carts have been gone for over a month now.

Wow...four inches of snow. I can't believe this is supposed to be Spring. It's making me even more anxious to get on that plane to Orlando. Only 1 week and 5 days left until we go. We are staying at CSR so if anyone has any questions you need answers to, let me know and I will try to find them for you while we are there.

Thanks JamesLynn - Do you work there? That would be a nice place to go every day!

So there are not any 2 story areas in the ranchos or 3 story areas in the casitas?

Do you happen to know if they'll still valet park for people with handicapped parking? I know they'll do that at Port Orleans even though there's no valet.

Would you know if all the renovated rooms will have the exact same decorations? Or will they be different to go with the section they're in?

Also I was wondering if there's still an arcade in the main building. When I called to ask another question today they mentioned that there's only one arcade - the Iguana. Everything I've read says there's another one called Jumping Beans.
