Do most people with small children usually request Cabanas 8 or 9. was gonna do Casitas but we want to be closer to dig site but not to far from the food. Also which is the best for bus stops?

Do the laundry facilities still need quarters or can you use your room key now?

I just requested a switch from POP to CSR for our May 1-7 trip. We've never stayed here before.. can someone tell me how the buses are? Especially first thing in the morning and mid-afternoon? The thing I like about POP is once you're on the bus you go straight there, how long are the added stops usually? We've got a toddler and usually just get a king and put him between us but I don't want to pay for a king this time, can I request bed rails prior to check in or at check in? Thanks.

I have read the buses run fairly well.

Convention guests do not use the buses till after 4 pm or in the evening - so during the day it is only vacationing guests who use the bus during the day - so this may only be 2/3 of the resort going to the parks - less people on the buses.

We just upgraded from Pop Century to Coronado Springs I requested the Cabanas or Casitas, though I know a good portion of the Casitas are preferred.

I'm very excited to try this resort!

The buses at CSR are fantastic. The stops are quick. I've stayed at many resorts, We've had the bet luck with buses at CSR.

Just booked our vacation to CSR for Nov 10 - 17
I'm leaning more and more towards 8a, BUT is that the best one that's in between the Dig site and El Centro? I don't want to be too far from either.

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

When I used the laundry in April 2012, it was quarters. There's a change machine inside the laundry room. $2 for wash - $2 for dry.

Week from tomorrow, we'll be arriving at the CSR.
Can we ask for a certain area when we check in?
I'd like to be within a few minutes walk to a bus stop, close to the pools would be nice too.
Can't believe it's just a week away, time can't fly fast enough.

Coffee makers

Hi all!

We will be at CSR in April for our second stay. Last time we were in Cabanas 8A...great location! LOVED IT!

This time we have requested Casitas to try a different location. Hoping to get our request. Can't wait to get back to CSR...it's been almost 4 years!

So my question...what kind of coffee makers do they have in the rooms now? Are they the 2 serving ones with a coffee pod? I think t hat's what they were last time we were there. I would loke to bring some coffee, but not sure what to bring. We also want to be able to heat water for oatmeal and tea for b-fast. LAst time that wasn't a problem with the coffee makers they had. Will we have any problem with it this time?

thank you!

I didn't use the coffee pot so I can't help with specifics, but it was the Cuisinart two-cup pod style.
