PostSubject: Hidden Secrets/Photo Opportunites at CSR   Wed Mar 24, 2010 12:57 pm

Hidden Secrets
Hit Rix Lounge (Entertainment after 9:00) for some “adult time” (Try the tapas style appetizers. YUM).

Hit Cafe Rix for some amazing gelato.

For more “adult time” the Maya Grill is a great place to dine.

Siestas margaritas are very good. If they offer you an extra shot of 151 ~ consider yourself warned.

Try one of the many hammocks, very relaxing!!

Get a massage at the salon.

Have a drink at the Laguna Bar. It's a great place to sit by the lake. You can see the high fireworks from Hollywood Studios, Epcot and/or Magic Kingdom at night.

Real Coffee at the Cafe Rix, Pepper Market and Maya Grill

Young or old, you have to give the water slide a try.

Find the hidden Mickey's in the concrete sidewalk in the rear of the main building.

Explore the wildlife and surroundings of the resort.

Photo Opportunities

A photo of mom or dad checking in

Someone refilling a mug

Trading Pins with a CM

At the entrance to Panchitos with the burro

Your room before everyone moves their stuff in

Making a pressed penny

In the main lobby

In front of your resort/hotel upon arrival and in front of your room. (If you do a lot of scrapbooking, some of the little things like this are neat to document. Signs are great for scrapping!)

Take a photo of you/your group at your resort. They really reflect an important part of your vacation.

Take pictures of your children asleep. They're always funny.

At the main pool there are some great photo ops: By the tiki post, by the pyramid, and by the big head.

With The Three Caballeros topiary in the back of the main building.

By the Fountain of Doves in the main lobby.

Keep an eye out for the alligators and other wildlife at CSR.

What are your favorites?

REAL COFFEE??????Oh God Buzz...that is like the cherry on top the sundae for me. I love my coffee and can barely scarf down that Nescafe they serve elsewhere.

It's some type of Italian coffee at Cafe Rix and they have flavors you can add. You can see the bottles to the left of the coffee machine in the photo. You can get espresso, cappuccino and cafe latte too.

Can you get real coffee in your refillable mug?

I want to say yes as It alway counted as a beverage on the dining plan at All Star. Anyone who has stayed at CSR know any differently????

Psyched about this as well!!!! We bring our own coffee and coffee pot --- not a fan of Nescafe---though the smell of it now automatically makes me think about Disney, so that's a perk! Also just read about refillable mugs and the good coffee---- "Zipadeedoodah...".

PostSubject: Real Coffee   Fri Apr 16, 2010 11:24 am

Whenever I travel I take along some Sumatra coffee pods from Starbucks. It is overkill for a lot of the smaller pots but bring a thermos and you can put some aside.

Nestle's is a big sponsor at WDW, so it is given priority over other brands. Our food services, though, are not run by Disney, they are third party partners. That is why as CMs we can be limited on influence.

Refillable mugs will not work for the espresso No

LOL--can you imagine if espresso were covered in those mugs? Lol---talk about a shuttle launch---we'd all be zinging off into space! drunken BTW---I dreamt about CSR last night--dreamed we were trying and trying to check in but it was taking hours on end and I was getting so impatient and I finally said, 'I want tp speak with frodesen, THE concierge" and then the staff suddenly gave us TWO rooms! Hmmm, I'd better lighten up on my caffeine intake, maybe?! Lol

welcome to the CSR Forum!! Yes...gators. Every body of water in Florida has gators. WDW lets them hang around until they are about 4ft in length then they are shipped to the everglades.

Critters of CSR

Yeah, Nescafe is not a very good coffee, but WDW makes it the worst possible way. I call it the sludge-o-matic Suspect I had it once in the Poly concierge when it was actually brewed. It wasn't good, but it wasn't as bad as sludge-o-matic.

We saw an alligator when we were there during our stay in April 2010. It was one of our kids' favorite memories. Every morning we would walk around the lake and try to see the alligator. We did see it most mornings. We are hoping one is still there when we go back in August. The kids can't wait!
