Just switched our October trip to the bounce back rate and saved well over $200.

Under 100 days!!

Reservations made for California Grill, Narcoossee's and Via Napoli. The rest of the trip will be at the Food and Wine Festival though I would like to try the new menu at the Maya Grill too.

Just me and DW this time. It's my 50th birthday and our 25th anniversary.

Awww- congratulations! What a reason to celebrate! Make sure you have cm's take plenty of pictures of just you two. I've found over the years that it's amazing how many we take of the kids and each other with the kids, but forget the two of us.

Sounds delicious! Save those snack credits for the f&w festival- they are by far the best use of them. Can't wait to hear what ya'll think of the new Maya menu.

I like the new "request Cabanas" addition on the check in, but I do believe we will be paying the up-charge to guarantee 9B for next. Per the hubster...

We'll as always, vacation flew by and I'm back home in Ct. I will do my write up soon but first I have to tackle all the leaves that Hurricane Sandy deposited in my yard. CSR was great and I couldn't have asked for anything better. It was an awesome trip!

I think there will be alot of us regulars willing to pay the extra to guarantee Cabanas 9B. I wish there was someway to guarantee Casitas 4, that is our favorite!

Yes, long story but Jet Blue cancelled my 11am flight on 10/29 so since I had to drive my daughter back to NH for college on Sunday, we booked a flight out of Manchester, NH for 6:30am on 10/29 figuring the farther north we went, the safer we would be to avoid Sandy. We planned on staing at a hotel at the airport. Then said what the heck, let's see if we can get out today (Sunday) and we tried standby for the 4pm flight and got lucky. We arrived Sunday night instead of Monday and got an extra night at CSR.

PostSubject: DAY 1   Tue Nov 06, 2012 1:12 pm

We got in late Sunday night after a day of scrambling to find a flight to Florida after our scheduled 11:00am flight on Monday was cancelled. Still do not understand why it was cancelled so early but at least we got extra time at WDW.

We arrived around 9:30pm and checked in. It was a breeze since I was the only person in the lobby. We were welcomed to the resort and got a king room upgrade in casita 5 for that night. The room faced the parking lot, rm 5240. The new RFID locks work great.

But first, we were hungry so we stopped at the Pepper Market to eat. We both got the blue cheese burger with fries. It was not the burger I remember the first time I ordered it. Now they just use one slice of blue cheese, not the pile of stilton blue cheese you used to get. Somewhat underwhelming. This was our first time trying the DDP. We liked it but still feel it was too much food. We normally wouldn't get dessert or sodas.



After the meal, we headed to the room. The room was in excellent shape, no damage, dust or bugs.

We found two towel designs when we entered the room.





We got a very good night sleep, no noisy neighbors or loud toilets. It will be good after all the stress of the day planning to get to WDW. It was hard to believe that at 6:00am our adventure began and we were in CT looking for a way to Florida.
