Coronado springs resort review

We just got back from Coronado springs Resort CSR and I thought I would give a small review on what I thought.

We stayed during October for 7 nights. The check in process was easy. We had done online check in. When we got there I asked if there were any cabanas or casitas open. We were told they were all full due to a convention. I would of requested in advance but we were going with family and had requested adjoining rooms. We were only allowed one request for online check in. Rancheros 7b was were we were placed.

We dropped our luggage off which we had to haul ourselves from the lobby to a luggage room We were gave a ticket and told to call when we got a text that our rooms were ready. We later got the text while we were at magic kingdom. We were told we had to call from our room. we could not call from the park since we had to be there. We had only stayed at wilderness lodge in the past and they just took our luggage to the room when it was ready. This was annoying since were were not going back to our room til late. Our photopass plus was in the luggage and I couldn't get it for our first day there.

Once we got back to the hotel we called and they said they would bring our luggage up. They said it would be about half an hour and it was about that much time. The kids fell asleep in their clothes. I guess we could of left the park after 3pm and got our luggage delivered but this is not something we want to do on our first park day.

The room itself was nice. It was clean and I was glad we upgraded to at least moderate for the queen size beds. the divider doors for the bathroom vanity area were a nice touch. Housekeeping did not seem to do as much at coronado as they did Wilderness lodge.. They basically did the minimum. made the bed, put some shampoo in the room and fresh towels. One day i went in the room and there were 10 towels thrown on the bed...clean. There were bottles of shampoo and lotion tied up in a trash bag on the vanity. that day our adjoining room didn't get any towels or toiletries? Were we supposed to share with the adjoining room or did housekeeping just leave in a hurry? I just didn't think that was very professional.
No towel animals at all except the one that was in the window when we got there. Not a big deal but it would of been nice for it to happen one night.

The buses were full most of the time. We were on bus stop 4. We had to stand most the time and then they pick up stop 1 on the way out. they pick up 2, 3, 4 and then 1. then they have a downtown bus that goes in a different order.. I want to say its opposite. or 1,2,3,4...not for sure.
I refilled my drink mug one time during the stay. It was just too far away from our room. they recommend taking the bus to stop 1 to refill your mug! that was just too much trouble. That was probably my biggest complaint during our stay was the difficulty in getting your mug filled late at night after the parks close. If it had been hotter I would of been more annoyed.

The size of this resort was just too large for me. I much preferred the size of wilderness lodge which is all i have to compare it to.

We didn't get to use the pool due to the temperature. I think due to hurricane sandy it was much cooler than usual. I never made it to the gift shop so I can't comment on that. We only had one quick service there of pizza and a burger to go and that was decent.

we had two small boxes delivered during our stay and the business center charges $3 per box and you pick it up yourself. Keep in mind they close at 7pm. Not sure if other resorts charge for this or not...but it was annoying to pay $6 when you had paid for shipping and they don't deliver it to your room.
