I wish we'd known this when we were there in Nov. 2011!

We were back near stop #3 (which is actually the second stop). I hated how far we were from the main building and I also was disappointed in their gift shop. There wasn't a whole lot there, IMO and I didn't like Cafe Rix--they didn't have the light lemonade.

I did like walking around the whole resort and the ranchos did look beautiful. I like walking around all over, so for me, I'm sure the walk to El Centro would be nice.

Really, you'll be fine OP whatever you do or get. It's a great resort. (but really, try to avoid bussing from El Centro).
You are welcome and have fun on your POR/BC trip!

A note..about CSR

Hi
I too wanted to stay POR. I had a reservation but when i got through to Disney to get my free dining plan they were all booked. So I guess you have to rebook so we decided on CSR. One tidbit of info that was of inportance to me was that they do not offer a bus the Sisneys Boardwalk. We have a ADR at Couzzinas so we will have to find other arrangements
Probably will take a taxi.
Hope yall have as much fun as we hope to have!

To bypass this you have to call maintenance to come down every 2 days and do something to the unit to get it to stay on.
The maya grill is awesome, and for QS still there is a QS place that you can grab food from and bring it back to your room.

I have seen a bunch of people post stuff about the A/C units with the motion sensors. In Feb 2012, this was not our experience at all. The A/C stayed on all night, even though we weren't moving. We were in Cabanas 9A.

Coronado is awesome, just beautiful, the Maya Grill is great, and the Dig Site is possibly the best pool at Disney

I am so glad to read all the positive comments. We wanted POR but for FD had to go with CS. We did get a preferred, because Mom and I get breakfast to go for the group every morning. Should we have paid the extra?
How long does it take to get to DTD? That is why we wanted POR, we all love WPE!

Great thread, thanks for all the info.

cS is our favorite moderate resort! We have stayed there many times in the past and loved every visit!! It's a big resort, so one piece of advice is to request the cabanas section. It's close to the dig site pool, el centre and the pepper market.

None of the resorts offer a bus to the Boardwalk, unless you're actually staying at a boardwalk area resort and walk over (or take the boat). POR does not offer direct bussing to the boardwalk that I'm aware of.

You have to do a transfer from a park, or from DTD or if you're in Epcot, walk over.

I would suggest taking place the bus to Hollywood Studios then the boat to the Boardwalk
