Two questions looked at buzzs site and couldn't find the answers does Coranado have any resort specific merchandise? Also where the elevators located in the cabanas section?


Thanks

I don't know the answer but have you tried posting your question on Buzz's Coronado site? He seems to know just about everything about the resort and is really quick to respond. Good luck! I hope the answer is that they deliver to your room because I'm doing business class in May!

Hi,

First trip in July to WDW and staying at CSR. We are very excited for our trip We have 2 small kids DD 4 and DS 6. I looked at the map prior to making reservations and requested Cabanas 9B or 8A/8B. It's important for us to be close to the main pool and bus stop. After reading this thread I realized that 9B is a preferred site. Should I call back and cancel that request? Also, would earlier check-in help our luck in getting our request rooms? I must take that into consideration when booking flights. Thank you for your help.

Agnes

I wouldn't bother calling to cancel that request. When you do online check-in you'll be given the chance to do two requests, you can pick Cabanas (but not the building number), and close to transportation or close to pool. Those requests seem more likely to get fulfilled then ones put on your reservation when you booked. Also it asks if you'd like a room ready when you arrive - giving the option for those arriving early to have a room, I assume - or if you would like to prioritize your requests.

You also have the chance to ask at check in if there are any rooms in your preferred location, if your requests weren't met.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

That is correct!

However, I would call back and change the request. 9B is only for Business Class -- the requests should be listed in order of importance so I'd want "9B" off my list! When you do online check-in, you are only allowed to choose 2 of the options. So if Cabanas 8A/8B was already listed as your request, then you could just add "near transportation" and "near pool" during online check-in. (anyway, that's what I would do! )

I've got requests on my reservation as well as what I requested during online check in, but I wondered if they're actually going to pay attention to the ones on the reservation or if they're going to focus more on what's asked for during online check in? Does anyone know? I figured it was Disney's way of streamlining the request process.

According to Buzz's site, you still need to pick up packages at Panchito's.

I would try to keep the requests the same. Or else they will have no way of knowing which ones are the most important. It is never a great idea to make more than a couple of requests, that just lessens the odds of getting them met.

If someone goes crazy and requests "Third floor West facing room near the elevator with a view of the pool looking right, and four palm trees looking right not more than 20 steps away from the food court " the room assigners are just as likely to throw up their hands and go "Whatever, crazy person. Here is your room". And give them the first room they see.

That's what I figured, lol. I made the same requests on my reservation as during online check in. Except I did ask for bed rails on the reservation, is there ever any problem getting them?

Thanks Everyone. So I didn't know about the online check in and requests. I figured the check in was face-to-face with CM upon arrival to resort and that is when they assigned you your room. I will call and change the request on my booking to take 9B off, right? I'm just hoping for a good location because my kids although not lazy get worn out quickly in hot weather and we are not taking a stroller. Fingers crossed.

We got here at 8 am to get our KTTW cards and head to Blizzard Beach. I had done online check in and had reserved a water view room. It was our first bit of pixie dust to find our room was ready and waiting! I was so surprised to find no wait. I literally walked up, showed my ID and they handed me my pack.i did not request a specific area though. We ended up in 8b which I'm completely satisfied with.nwe don't have littles though

Not sure about the elevators but CSR does have resort specific merchandise in the gift shop (clothing, mugs, etc).

I have stayed at CSR 4 times but in buildings 3,5,7a and 7b. The elevators were all in the centers with ice machine/soda/snack in a room adjacent. I will be in 9b this Wednesday so I will verify, but I am guessing the elevators will be in the center because pictures show the stairs on the ends of the buildings.

I will look for resort mdse too, dd loves to shop!

I thought Disney got rid of most of the resort specific stuff in place of WDW stuff.
