Coronado Springs Resort - few questions

My husband and I are staying in a preferred King room at CSR in Feb for Princess Half Marathon (kids staying home with grandma).

Which building should I request - Casitas 1, 2 or 3?

Are there fridges and a coffee maker in the room? I heard Disney was removing/replacing the fridges. My husband is a BIG coffee drinker. Is mouse keeping pretty generous with the coffee pods?

What toiletries are provided in the room? I know they are H2O2 but any idea which ones?

Which bus stop should we use - the one at El Centro or the Casitas? What is the pick up order of the busses? Anyone familiar with the busses for the Princess Half Marathon - will all bus stops be running or only one?

Pepper Market - there used to be a system where you ordered your food/ got a card. There was a 10% tip added (we are not on dining plan as we have TIW card). Is this still the case?

Thanks in advance!

I can't answer all your questions, but some I can.

I believe CSR has had all the fridges replaced. I had one in early December. I only used 1 coffee pod per morning and it got replaced. I'm sure you could request more.

Toiletries were the same ones we've received in DVC rooms, which I think are the same ones in deluxes. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bar soap. Can't remember the scent but its the same one that's been around a while now.

Bus pickup order for the parks is casitas, Ranchos, cabanas, el centro. Not sure if downtown Disney is different, and I don't know about the marathon transportation.

Pepper market no longer does the 10% service charge/gratuity. They do still have the cards. I got it filled out, then ate, then paid on the way out.

For Wine and Dine race weekend I stayed at CBR and the marathon busses stopped at every internal bus stop, so I imagine it will be the same at CSR. GL!

Just there the 3rd week of Dec. We were in Casitas 4. 3 and 4 seemed very close to the bus stop. I would think Casitas 1 would be closer to the bus stop at El Centro. The toiletries were the Spa H2O with the grapefruit bergamot scent. (I loved it and my sister bought me some to enjoy at home!) Pepper Market had the card to stamp but did not charge the 10%. Fridge and coffee pot were in the room. The coffee pot was the pod type. Mousekeeping was great. Check in was great. Had 2 encounters with bell services-----1 was great and 1 was very bad. The second guy got his tip and the tip the first guy did not get!

All rooms have fridges and coffeemakers. You can ask housekeeping for extra coffee if you run out, or leave a note asking for extra.

The buses to and from the parks stop first at casitas, then ranchos, then cabanas, then El Centro. Buses to downtown Disney stop first at El Centro, then casitas, ranchos and cabanas.

Casitas 3 will be closest to the casitas bus stop, casitas quiet pool and laundry and the fitness center. Casitas 1 will be closest to the main building and the El Centro bus stop.

Toiletries include soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion and body wash (I think). I think they are still using the grapefruit scent.

No more service charge at Pepper Market.
