The grounds are beautiful. The resort is huge so never really feels crowded. El Centro (the lobby area) will be crowded certain times, but mostly on days when the conventioneers are checking in/out.

I can't think of any "Don'ts" for CSR; lots of "Do's"!! Besides the Dig Site, the quiet pools are nice. Hammocks by the water - so relaxing! CSR has a Health Club/Spa you should check out! Walk the grounds - beautiful!

At check-in you will receive an Activity sheet in your Welcome Packet. My last visit was February:
1:00-3:00pm daily - Poolside Activities (games).
3:00pm Pool Fiesta - the daily pool party.
4:00pm - more games.
5:15pm: Poolside Campfire.
7:00pm - Movie Under the Stars (that will be later in July since it's still light at 7pm!! )

My suggestion, especially with young children, would be to hit the parks early; come back to the resort mid-day, during the heat of the day, to enjoy the resort and pool; head back to the parks late afternoon/early evening.

Have a magical vacation!
We have recieved our First booklet of Luggage Tags and Discount Coupons. The girls were going nuts over the Mickey Tags. 33 days to go and we had to put them on their tavel bags already. LOL

One of the main reason we are coming to the park on July 4th was to take advantage of all the Fireworks that will be going off on our drive into Orlando. The girls will have a show in the sky like never before. We won't be getting in till around 9:00 PM, so when does the Fireworks show start at Disney and where is it located?

Last year at the Magic Kingdom it was supposed to be around 8:30 but it was postponed til sometime after 10pm because of bad storms in the area. They had 360 degree fireworks, no matter where in the kingdom you were standing there were fireworks ALL around you. It was pretty awesome.

We just returned from our first visit to CSR over Memorial Day Weekend. We stayed in the Cabanas section, building 8B, facing the lake, upper floor. It was perfect! Beautiful view (even though we booked a standard view, we were given the lake view ) and less than a 2 minute walk to the Dig Site main pool. Highly recommend it.

Just booked a couple days at Coronado Springs in July as my GF and I head down to the beach. Will be my first time staying there...I gave her options on which resort to stay and she picked it out so we are both excited.

It's a beautiful resort and my favorite one to stay at! You'll have a great time!

I was in Cabanas 8A for my last stay at CSR, had a wonderful 1st-floor room with a view of the lake and it was just a minute's walk to the Dig Site. Great room, great location!

With the August discounts we were able to upgrade from AoA LM room to CSR for only $195 more. I really really don't want to be in the Rancheros, however I don't want to pay more. What's the chance of getting Cabanas at the Ranchero price?

I have stayed at CSR many times and I think Ranchos is a beautiful location. Building 7b is very close to The Dig Site and bus stop. 6a would be closer to main building. Casitas has some standard rooms too. They are closer to food and shops but farther from Dig Site. Study the map and when you check in ask if another area is available if you don't like what is first given. Also buildings vary from 2 to 5 floors so if that matters learn about that too.

CSR is my favorite of the mods although I love them all and have tried each at least twice.

Allears has some nice info and videos to see as well.

Happy Planning

This will be my first stay at a mod. We have always stayed at ASM or POP. Will I be disappointed or hooked for life. We have 2 Girls, 10 & 3.

We just booked, then saw several posts that said you can guarantee a stay in Cabanas by booking Business Class. I called Disney to modify our reservation, and the woman was unable to verify that Business Class rooms are located solely in Cabanas. We took the upgrade anyway when she said we could downgrade if it turned out to not be the case, and she made a note on our reservation.

Is this a 100% confirmed fact? I really, really hope so.

**Also, which map is right? This one shows 9B as the first building by the bridge - http://www.solarius.com/dvp/wdw/imag...-map-small.jpg

But this one shows 9B being the one with the pool - http://www.disneydrawingboard.com/WD...springsmap.gif

Which is the right map?

Business class is 9B. The building next to the bridge.
