Brit you are so right – Different resorts for different tastes. Fortunately, we have loved every single resort we have stayed in or visited except CSR.
We were there as visitors during a Magical Gathering to see SIL and her family. While we were on property for the afternoon, we spent time in her room, touring the grounds, visiting the pool and lobby areas, and eating at the Pepper Mill. We never felt magical at all.
She had a dark room facing a courtyard and they were so far from the pool area that there were times they just decided not to swim. And the businessmen just made me sad.
We were staying at BWV that trip, and on the ride back to BWV, I felt like crying because SIL had such a non-magical room and resort.
I try to be provide a truly honest opinion when the subject comes up. And I ALWAYS mention that there are is a wide range of opinions about CSR. For me to sugar coat my thoughts on it will not help anyone who is asking for input. A lot of the time, it’s possible to make decisions abotu this stuff based on rooms sizes, TV dimensions, and acreage of the various resorts… but no measurements can make up for what we felt was a total lack of magic.
I wanted to love CSR because the theme is generally to my liking, but I just didn’t.
