    Bev, of those 3 we have only ever stayed at CBR. We weren't overly impressed. It was a nice resort but too spread out for my taste.

    DIANE!!! YOU are SO BAD!

    I don't mind that it'll be spread out John...is it easy to get around? Will I get lost? You know me and directions. It's down to CBR and CS. Since we've already been at Ft. Wilderness many times...it wouldn't technically be NEW. Rick wants Pirates...surprise surprise.

    We're going to try a pirate room at CBR just for fun the downside is they seem to be in Trinidad south which is 10mins or so from the food court etc, but there's an internal bus service and I reckon it'll be fun

    I love love love love love Ft Wilderness Cabins...but are you gonna need a kitchen or that much room?

    Id go with Port Orleans..ive always loved the way that place looks!

    And what the enemy will see? They will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!

    I can't help with room advice, but I'm really glad you and Rick are taking a holiday on your own When are you thinking about going









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    don't need much room, it's just me and Rick...no DGD's this time...shock shock. And since we're flying...I'm limited to the amount of clothes and shoes I can bring. Rick helps with the liquids and other stuff I can't take. LOL

    Thanks Wendy!!! We're trying for November in our first round of decision making. I love that time of year. Not too hot, not cold at all. I'm excited!

    I've stayed at CSR and liked it, for the most part. Pepper Market was weird and the food not very good when I stayed there (2003). But other guests seemed to enjoy it. It's probably just my picky eating style that made the food less appetizing--everything plain and separate!

    Try to avoid staying in the Ranchos section--it looks very much like the area around Phoenix and Tucson. If you don't mind the desert atmosphere, it's just as good as anywhere else at the resort. Since I live in the desert, I don't care to vacation in a faux desert!

    The bus system is easy--four bus stops plus the main building. I was located in the Cabanas section, near Bus Stop 4. Very convenient. About equidistant between the main building and main pool/Dig Site. The lake provides a lovely backdrop for walking. And it's hard to get lost--the paths just loop around the resort. It's nice during the day and really beautiful at night!

    Edited to add:
    And if you happen to walk in the wrong direction, just say you took the scenic route! :wink:

    Ok...waiting on Johnie...she's going to HATE me after this.
