We stayed in Rancheros 6A third floor (top floor for that building). Had 2 ajoining rooms. Booked a standard view but they gave us a water view! Also, daily towel animals. They made us a nest with 5 small birds in it. And bunnies on Easter!

I like the look of rancho 6a. It reminds me of a western movie, as the cowboys ride up and tied there horses up before going into the saloon.

Did you see or participate in the Easter hunt next to your building on Easter Sunday? We left too early for Epcot so I didn't get a chance to see it or take pics?

Any pics of your towel animals?

I have a couple of questions

I'm headed there Sunday morning.....

Do they have wireless access there? in the rooms? in the lobby? If so, is there a daily charge?

Is there a charge to use the fitness equipment?

We didn't do the Easter Egg hunt. It was myself, DH, DD 17 and DDBF 17 -- too old to participate. I will post the towel animals pics soon.

I agree I loved the theme of the Rancho buildings. I found 6A close to the Dig Site and the quiet pool/laundry room. It is away from ElCentro but with the internal shuttle on the golf carts getting around the resort is a breeze.

Did you have long lines/long waits for the buses at the end of the night coming back from the parks? I know the resort is huge... are the buses really crowded?

Did you take ME? If so, how long did it take you to get to CSR from the airport? (I know times vary depending on what resorts people are dropped off at before you - trying to figure out how long I should plan on it taking from MCO)

Thanks!

If you are on the buses at the park closing, they will be crowded.
