Want hopper passes for 6 days. 7 is not needed because of an early flight out our last day.

Maybe we should just stay with what we have booked. I just want to have a great stay for my kids. I'm so confused.
I have a few thoughts and some prices, too. I, too, would not pick OKW for my child's first stay. I actually think many of the moderates are more magical and would drop your price significantly. One moderate recently added a "CL like" option which I'll get to below.

I agree to drop the hoppers. You'll save over $200 and if you find you really need them, you can always upgrade your tickets when you get there.

Here are the prices I found using the spring discount. Let us know if you are getting different pricing. I have pricing with 6-day hop and 6-day base tickets and have included WL-CL, AKL-CL (which is a little cheaper than WL and is an AMAZING resort for children) plus CSR's new Business Class, which gets you some CL amenities (plus automatically puts you in the most preferred building at CSR) and is coming in at LESS than OKW:

WL, Standard Room, CL
with 6-day hop $4782.14
with 6-day base $4,539.30

AKL, Standard Room, CL
with 6-day hop $4,660.58
with 6-day base $4,417.74

CSR, Standard View, Business Class
with 6-day hop $3,087.86
with 6-day base $2,845.02

Here is the description of CSR, Standard Room, Business Class (it sounds like CL, light)

All rooms have 2 queen-size beds, hardwood furniture, desk and chair, vanity area with sink, a ceiling fan and a bathroom. All rooms are non-smoking. Amenities include flat-panel TV, in-room wall safe, voice mail, complimentary Wi-Fi, hairdryer, iron, ironing board, mini-fridge, coffee maker and access to Coconino Cove, our Business Lounge. A Pack 'n Play playard is available upon request. Wheelchair-accessible rooms are available. These rooms are located closer to the convention center and main building and offer standard views.

Coconino Cove – the new Business Lounge at Disney Coronado Springs Resort – provides a variety of exclusive amenities and upgraded services to our Guests.

Located in the Cabanas, building 9B, Coconino Cove is a semi-exclusive gathering place for networking, relaxing, working or playing.

Guests with Coconino Cove access will enjoy upgraded, semi-exclusive services and amenities, including:
Use of in-lounge iMac and PC stations, computer gaming consoles and flat screen televisions
Electronic device charging stations & boarding pass printing
Areas suitable for small groups to gather and meet in a relaxed setting

Food & beverage offerings throughout the day
Guests with Coconino Cove access will be located in building 9B during their stay, convenient to both the lobby and convention center.

Coconino Cove is open 7:00 a.m. – 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. – 10 p.m. 7 days a week.

No matter what, you will be in Disney and you are certainly not alone in second-guessing your resort choice! Have a great time no matter what you decide!
