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?
Absolutely - Business Class is 9B!!

I've never seen either of those maps before -- the official map can be found on buzz's site (google buzz coronado springs), then scroll down to "resort map".

Woohoo! Thanks!

I've heard a lot about this Buzz's site. I'm going to check it out.

Is the alcohol in the Business Class Lounge free? Is there a limit?

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
I looked at the map and called WDW requesting Cabanas 8a. They couldn't guarantee, but it's better to have asked. I am going to check out allears too! Thanks!

This information has completely made my vacation. I was so set on POR and when it wasn't available my heart literally sank. This is turning out to be way better already.

Forgot to thank you for the info. I was there with dd18 in April and we loved the lounge. I had to ask for a fork to eat the fruit out of the sangria because it was toooo good to waste I was given a shrimp fork and was told I was not the first to ask either.

You're welcome!! It is always my pleasure to research WDW and report my experiences!

The best Sangria I ever had - loaded with delicious, fresh fruit! Yes, fork was a must!!!

I search through the thread a little but didn't find this info so I'm going to ask.

When we stayed at Riverside last year there was a weekly (monthly?) schedule of resort activities that took place. It was mostly poolside activities and the times for each event but I remember it listing movies under the stars, campfire times, and other stuff as well. I remember our boys playing soccer in a open area at French Quarter with cast members too.

Is there something similar for Coronado Springs? Are there poolside activities lead by cast members? The pool and playground area look like plenty of activity enough, but I was curious anyway. Trying to make plans for 12 people, some of which are going to Blizzard Beach one morning. We are going to meet up later that night at Hollywood Studios, but I am trying to plan the morning for the ones not going to the water park and I remember the poolside stuff at Riverside filling a morning/early afternoon nicely.

Sorry if it has been asked before and thanks!

CSR has the Activity Sheet too (actually, every WDW resort does! )

I posted a bit of information about it several pages back. Here's the link to that post:

http://www.disboards.com/showpost.ph...postcount=1151

This was in February, but the movies started at 7pm (would probably be 8:30-9:00pm summer months). Here was the February movie schedule:
Sunday: Brave (Rated G)
Monday: Frankenweenie (Rated G)
Tuesday: Secret of the Wings (Rated G)
Wednesday: A Goofy Movie (Rated G)
Thursday: Lady and the Tramp (Rated G)
Friday: Freaky Friday (Rated PG)
Saturday: Peter Pan (Rated G)



nothing listed before 1pm.
