Microwaves are available upon check in on a first come, first served basis (they have a limited number of them).

The CSR has Central Air (not wall units). To adjust the temperature, follow these instructions: On the thermostat, push the power button and the down arrow (button that adjusts the temp) at the exact same time. If you do this correctly, you will see the letters "bp" where the temp normally shows. You are now bypassing the sensors in the room. You can then set the temp to whatever you want and it keeps the room that cold whether you are in it or not. You might have to do this once a day as the thermostat tends to go back to sensor mode after 24 hours. (per DISBoard)

    All resort pools have life vests. All you need is to show your room key, also...they are complementary length of stay. -- Figaro

    We stayed at the Grand Floridian resort on the second floor of the Conch Key building right above the boat dock and had a spectacular view. We got to see and hear wishes each night from our balcony plus see the water light parade! It was awesome, I doubt that I would do it again just because of the extra cost, but I am glad we did it one time. It was also so relaxing to just sit on the balcony and see the water and the view.--tnpoohbear

    The campfire program at Fort Wilderness is free and completely separate from the Hoop-de-Doo Revue. The fire lighting is at 6:30, sing-along starts at 7:00, and the movie starts at 7:40. We did this a number of years ago and the kids really enjoyed it. They sell kits to make smores there, which was a big hit. Chip and Dale come around and sign autographs. We didn't stay for too much of the movie, just because it was going to be too late for young children. We were staying at Fort Wilderness in a cabin, so it was very easy for us. If you're staying somewhere else you'll want to have a transportation plan so you can get back later.--princessesmom
