One other question: To those who have stayed at both CSR and deluxe, how does CSR really compare. I know we will miss having a balcony a whole lot, but I'm not too worried about the resort being spread out (we enjoy walking), and I don't think I'll mind having a smaller room. I was kind of bummed about not having the option to walk or boat to a park, but my 2 year-old loves buses, so maybe that will be a good thing for us. Other than those few things, will it really be that different?
The reason we keep staying at CSR is we really feel we are getting Deluxe value at the Mod price. It has all the Deluxe amenities: Fitness center, salon, spa, sauna, probably the nicest lounge at any WDW resort, plus outdoor lounge, largest hot tub at WDW, the pool is generally considered the second best at WDW next to SAB. The biggest complaint you hear is the size, but now there is the Business Class location which puts you close to everything and is still way cheaper than a Deluxe.

I personally don't care about indoor hallways. I like the fact that its spread out, there's always a quiet place to relax. The only thing the Deluxes have that I would really like is the location and a balcony. We always stay 10-14 nights so the difference in price for us is $3000-$4000, I just can't bring myself to pay that kind of money for a balcony and walk to Epcot.

I didn't know you can also refill at Laguna, good to know. I found the jogging map online, it says the outer loop is about 1 mile. I guess I'll run both.

The jogging path would be ok very early in the morning, but too many people around later in the day. I used the tread mills and bikes in the fitness center. It was all brand new as of 2011.
Great, I'll probably use GG or WGS. I would only run the paths at dawn anyway so crowds shouldn't be a problem.

I guess runners are a little crazy but it's a good crazy.

perhaps you are right, but it is like an addiction; I have to have my morning run watching the sunrise while listening to something playing from my Ipod. That and with all the food I eat while in WDW, the 10 miles of walking doesn't burn enough for me.

Yes, we have made it.
Staying in Casita 5. The place is Beautiful.

Today was mainly unloading truck and enjoying the pool. The Girls coudn't get enough of the waterslide.
I just enjoyed doing something other than driving! lol

Tomorrow is Magic Kingdom.
The rest of our stay is going to guess which park today is for the girls.


Info for those wanting to know.
We did the online check in about 2 weeks ago.

When we walked in to check in, everyone was really nice and we didn't have to wait to get checked in. Seperate line for us and the lady behind the counter was super nice. In and out in less than 10 minutes. Coudn't ask for more!

Hello. We'll be staying at Coronado for the first time in October and I'm wondering which building I should request. I'm thinking either casitas 5 or cabanas 8a or b. we will probably be using the pool quite a bit and won't really be eating at the restaurants much (might go to pepper market a couple of mornings for breakfast and maybe once for dinner). However I do like to refill my mug every morning and am guessing that the pool bar refill area won't be open early in the morning. Oh and we will have our car so bus stop location is not important.

So any thoughts on which building I should request? Thanks!

One question for you. When you did online check in, did you request a particular room location?

Closest buildings to the pool are Cabanas 8A and Ranchos 7B.

Even though I had requested 8b, I got 7b. I ended up liking that location a lot. We faced the quiet pool and were close to the Dig Site.

Quick question regarding online check in

I went ahead and did early online check in for our stay at CSR. When it came time to put in requests I was given the option of either Cabanas, Ranchos, Ground floor, second floor, fourth floor, and close to transportation. My question is this...which buildings have a fourth floor? We are hoping we get Castitas (4 or 5...close to transportation). I chose the options close to transportation and went ahead and put fourth floor, thinking that Casitas are the only buildings with four floors. I also know that these are just requests, not guarantees, but I'm just trying to set us up for the best result if we do get our requests! Can anybody help me with this? Thanks!

simple question

I am sure that the info is here in this thread but not on the first page.
Do you pay the 10% service fee w/ ddp?

But the Cabanas and Ranchos do not? Is that correct?
