PostSubject: Anyone notice when the marina is open?   Mon Jun 13, 2011 9:58 pm

Has anyone noticed some sort of schedule, or pattern to when the Marina is open? It was open on our first 2 trips to CSR (both in 2007) and was closed when we went in April/May of 09. I know it says seasonally open, but I need to prepare myself if it will be closed again. This is definitely one downfall to the resort, adn I really hope they decide to have it opened more often in the future. I suppose it is because of the fact that there are so many Conventioneers and not many of the suits and ties guys wanna go for a ride on the family bike things (can't think of what they are called). But I really wish we had the opportunity to take one around the resort!!!

I believe that it has closed for good but I'll try to find out more when I'm there in 12 days. I don't even think it opened at all last summer. Its really a shame.

That's what I was afraid of :(

Any updates on La Marina? I'll be there in 25 days and was really looking forward to taking my daughter out on one of the Water Mouses!

welcome to the CSR Forum!

I would plan on visiting the Contemporary (or any other resort with a marina) to rent watercraft. I do not believe that CSR will reopen the marina, especially in this economy.

Thank you for the welcome! I can't believe I didn't find this site until last night. I'm a little disappointed that the marina is closed, but at least I'm aware of it ahead of time. Since the resort does focus a lot on convention-goers, I can see how the utilization would be a little low. I love the marina at the Contemporary. While growing up (probably never really "grown up") I always stayed at the Contemporary with my family and when I took my then girlfriend, now wife, for her first trip to Disney we stayed there and used the Water Mouse a lot.

With how much the price of the Contemporary has gone up, I am hoping to find the CSR as my new favorite resort.

We stayed at the Cont in 2002 and there are so many other deluxes I would love to try but I cannot justify the cost of the rooms per night, even with codes and discounts. I'd rather use those same codes at CSR. When I hit the lottery, I'll try more of them.

When we went in December, we stayed at the Wilderness Lodge. I wasn't extremely impressed and had issues with the transportation. We were waiting for Epcot's bus. The other ones for different parks came numerous times. Waited 35 minutes. Not sure if someone forgot a change in route? Either way, I didn't see the value to stay there again.

That can happen at any resort. But the one thing you can count on at CSR is that you will not share with another resort which is nice. When we stayed at FW, we shared with WL and at the Cont we shared with the GF and Poly. No thanks...

We had a bad experience with the MK bus in March while staying at CSR. After waiting 30 min for a bus to come, it totally bypassed us at stop 4 because it was completely filled!! We gave up waiting and took our car. Bumped into a family that was waiting with us for the bus. We had already done the Mickey meet and greet and were walking to The Plaza when we spotted them. I was too curious and just had to know when they arrived with the bus. I was told they had just then gone through the gates and were making there way on Main St. USA. It took them over an hour to get to the MK.
