    We are staying at CS end of April, what area of hotel is best place to stay? We are going to have a car, so do not need to be near bus stops, but would like to be nearer to parking lot, pool and food court and still have a decent view. Thanks!!!

    Hi Tracy!

    I recommend staying in the Casitas if parking is more important than being close to the pool, as I just think you have a lot more options in terms of parking by staying over there.  Buildings 1 through 3 are close to the Pepper Market, but buildings 4 and 5 are much closer to the pool. 

    If being closer to the pool in general is more important than having a lot of parking close by, then I recommend staying in the Cabanas.

    However, I don't recommend putting down a specific building at all as that really ties the hands of the Disney Cast Member.  I think it is much better to put down a request just as you wrote in this question:  ask for a room close to a large parking lot, the pool, and the food court!  That way the Cast Member can do the best job he or she can in trying to meet the request.  For example, if there are no rooms close to the Pepper Market, he or she might still be able to find a room close to the pool with a lot of parking nearby and a good view!  If you just list one building number and that building number is unavailable then the Cast Member has nothing else to go on. 

    I hope this helps!  Enjoy planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation and write back if you have any more questions!
