With all due respect to the Steelers and the Browns and whatever else, this is a CSR FAQ thread.. Let's try to keep the majority of the content in this thread about planning a stay at that resort and / or answering questions regarding same.

Thanks.

The room was in very good shape and came complete with 2 bathrobes (something I wouldn't use, but thought was a nice touch!)



First, the Lounge CMs: Wonderful!

The atmosphere: very warm and inviting!

The Lounge is open from 7 to 10am mornings; then closed and locked up until it opens again from 5 to 10pm.

Breakfast (7-10am): Cold cereals, bagels, fresh fruits, and either muffins, cinnamon rolls, or danish (they alternate those). The coffee machine makes espresso and lattes; they have regular and decaf coffee, a nice selection of teas, milk and juice.










Evening Service (5-10pm): Soft drinks, bottled water, Perrier, beer, wine, sangria (both red & white!). Crackers, cheeses, veggies, hummus and several dips. Tortilla chips, potato chips and veggie chips. At 7pm they bring out chocolate covered pretzels and a spicy nut mix. (I didn't photograph the pretzels or nut mix. )














My next post will be photos of the Lounge.

I hope you will report back here with your experience! Since Business Class is so new, it may be getting tweaked here and there. Will be nice to have updates from recent guests! Have a great trip!

I have my final bill in front of me. While the top of the bill states the resort and room number, the "description" for the daily room charge each day is: "Disney's Coronado Springs Resort Standard View - Business Class - DN" (so it will appear multiple times for a multi-night stay).

Does anyone know how many outlets there are at CSR? Don't really want to carry a power strip with me but have quite a few things that will need plugging in. Thanks

Thanks coming soon

Thx for the great updates. We will be staying at CSR in about 2.5 weeks and will update on the resort as a whole and over the Bus Class Rms and Lounge.

I've never stayed at Coronado, but the pictures I keep seeing of it are beautiful! I am really starting to consider it for our September trip.

My two children will love the Dig Site pool. What rooms would be best to be close to the Dig Site? But I guess we would also want to be close to the food court too. Any suggestions?

The Dig Site is across the lake from the food court. We've always preferred Casitas 4 or 5 or Cabanas 8A. Casitas 4 or 5 take about three minutes to the main building and about six minutes to the Dig Site; Cabanas 8A is a very short walk to the Dig Site and a five minute (if that) walk across the bridge to the main building.

for the quiet pool by the fitness center, does anyone know how far it is from end to end? I swim for fitness and was wondering if it was 25 yards across.

Thanks!

No tables?

All of the pictures I've seen of the rooms just have a desk in them instead of a table with two chairs, like in most other rooms. Are there ANY rooms with tables or do all of them have desks? I really like the look of Coronado Springs, but since we would be eating breakfast some in the room and will have 5 and 6 year old kids, I don't know how eating cereal would go without a table for both of them to sit at. I hate for that to be a reason why we don't choose this resort, but I think it may be. I would love it if it were just DH and I, but I don't know if the room would work for my family. Has anyone else missed not having a table for meals in the room?

We just checked out today. It was really a great place to stay. My boys took turns sitting at the desk to have breakfast. It worked out fine. I wouldnt let that change your mind. There are so many positives. We loved having two queen beds instead of the double beds at the other moderates.

While I am not sure if CBR has upgraded yet, POFQ and POR have queen beds. They got rid of the doubles during their last refurbishments!

The Values do still have the doubles.
