Thanks for all the replies! I'm sorry I didn't really give much info about what we like and such...

I think we are leaning towards CSR.

-I dont care for fitness centers and such, I get enough of a workout walking the parks all day!
-I want an easy ride to and from the parks - i hear CSR has a direct bus line? It doesnt share with other resorts?
-I like a quiet /adult pool. (I dont mind kids...hey! Its a FAMILY resort! Let them scream and have fun!) But I would like to just swim around for a bit to cool off after a long day in the parks.
-Id like a pool side / or not so dressy place to grab a drink.
-easy counter service -grab breakfast before the parks

I've only ever said On property at the Poly and my Boyfriend has only stay at CBR and All Star Sports...

thanks again everyone!

I think either CSR or Riverside would be fine, depending on your taste. I voted for Riverside because its such a peaceful resort. We love everything about it. In fact we will be there the week of Thanksgiving.

If you are going that week, know that a bunch of cheerleaders and dancers will all be staying with their family's at CSR. The resort will be big enough that it shouldn't be a problem though.

DH and I have been debating back and forth between Coronado and PO Riverside..this video sealed the deal between POR and Coronado :

Overview of POR :



Overview of Coronado :


We decided tonight to skip the Coronado and do all 10 nights at POR. It just seems much more relaxed and really what we want..I didn't realize the architecture of the resort was so nice..and we can head over to POFQ if we want to visit nearby. We will be staying in a Royal Room too !

I hope this may help you also!
Have fun planning

I found CSR to be very boring and loved POR. It is very hard when someone asks - which mod - or which deluxe - without offering a few things they researched about each resort and asked why people liked one compared to another.
Agreed! We weren't sure we would like PO. The boat to DTD turned out to be a bigger plus for us than expected. Eventhough, CSR is geared towards adults, not all adults are looking for the same things.
