CSR - Rancho section - positives please ?
 
I know the CSR Rancho's are the longest walk to the Pepper Walk.
But....
Please tell me some positive thoughts and benefits to the Rancho section.

:confused3
How is the quiet pool ?
Closer to the Dig Site pool ?
Near any snack area?
Better bus stop to the 4 main Parks ?
:confused3

Please tell.
:) Thank you !

We were in Ranchos 3B 2 years ago today and its a great location. We were less than 5 minutes to the Dig Site and only minutes to the bus stop. I was leary at first after reading OP's reviews, but that was quickly forgotten as we loved our room location.

Another Rancho fan here!!!! We requested it for our last stay, and it was granted.....not that we had any doubt that it would...... We loved the theme - loved the same things the pp stated - lovely walk in the mornings and at sunset to/from El Centro, and we never felt it was that far, I liked the quiet pool better than the other 2 sections and it was never busy during our stay, very quiet and relaxing!!! We had great cell and wifi access - didn't experience any problems with those as I've read some reports that have.

Free wi-fi at CSR ?
That would be great for our DD's Verizon iPhone !

We stayed at CSR our first trips and loved Ranchos 7B with a water view. Quick walk to the main pool, quite pool right outside our door. It was perfect.

That said we had a rental car and it was a quick walk to the parking lot. We didn't care about the Pepper Market because we would drop by the main building on our way back from the parks... in our car.

When we went last June we had requested a room in the Cabana's section close to the main building, but ended up with a room in the Rancho's section building 7b facing the Dig Site. We were kind of dissapoited at first because we had heard that the Rancho's is the last section you want. We ended up being fine with it. We were close to the Dig Site, close to a bus stop and it really isn't that far to walk to the main building. if we would stay at Coronado Springs again I wouldn't care where we stayed.

We've stayed in the Ranchos section several times now. It is a long walk from the Pepper Market, but I've come to like the Ranchos section. The landscaping is very pretty. The Dig site is close by. The quiet pools are very nice. Bus stops are convenient. Not getting a preferred room saves some $$.
We've stayed in the Cabanas section a few times too, also very nice. I'd be happy with a room in the Ranchos ::yes::

I loved Ranchos. The walk to the Pepper Market was long but the bus stop was 2 minutes from our room and the quiet pool even closer. And even if it takes several minutes to get to El Centro it is a stunningly beautiful walk. My favorite resort!

Another Ranchos fan. A bus stop was literally out our door and I didn't mind the walk to El Centro. When we were there you could just hop any theme park bus if you didn't feel like walking to the main bldg it stops there on the way out. The DTD bus can get you back to your section

Theme park bus stops go in this order:
The bus stops are:
Bus Stop 2: Casitas
Bus Stop 3: Ranchos
Bus Stop 4: Ranchos and Cabanas
Bus Stop 1: El Centro

DtD and Exit buses
The bus stops are:
Bus Stop 1: El Centro
Bus Stop 2: Casitas
Bus Stop 3: Ranchos
Bus Stop 4: Ranchos and Cabanas

I just booked CSR for 9/9-9/15 but haven't put any building requests in yet. When you all say "long walk" what would that relate to time wise? I have stayed at POR previously in both Magnolia Bend and Alligator Bayou and didn't think it was that bad of a walk but you could cut through over bridges and such. Last year we stayed POP and I wasn't a big fan but more of the busses. Plus I think the only reason we ate/drank more at the food court was because you have to cut through to get to the bus stop. Any help is greatly appreciated... such a difficult decision!

This info is good to hear:goodvibes our next trip we plan to stay at csr in the ranchos section.

pooh2001 02-19-2013 05:42 PM

Thank you for all the replies - rancho's it is.
We have teens - so no problem on a long walk for food - as long as they can get to the 'dig site' to swim fast :rotfl:

The difference here is that there are no bridges to cut across. You have to walk around the lake to get to El Centro and there's no way around that. If you plan to eat in the food court a lot, its not the best location for that.

We'd asked for Casitas, which we've stayed in before, but were put in Ranchos 6 last year. It was actually a good location. Close to the pool, which we used each afternoon, not too far from the bus, and a small hike to the main building.

We stayed in Ranchos 6B once. The first morning I made the mistake of walking around the lake to get coffee. The next day I realized I could cut through the pool and over the bridge. It wasn't a bad walk at all and it was close to a bus stop.
