Quick review of CSR and a few pics

Just returned Monday night from a wonderful Orlando trip. My best friend and I stayed our last night at Coronado Springs Resort, mainly so I could book the bounce back free dining for next year.

We were given room 3142 in Casitas 3. I had requested Casitas, so I was very pleased that my request was granted. After touring the resort, I'm requesting the Cabanas section. I had booked the waterview room, and I've also booked one again for next year.

Overall, I was very happy with the resort. The CMs we encountered were very friendly/helpful, we loved the Pepper Market, gift shop and the Dig Site pool. Our room was clean, everything was working properly, and we had plenty of room. Next year, DH and I will be taking our DD (who will be 2) and our nephew (who will be 10), so it was good to see the rooms/amenities first hand and know what to expect. There was some construction going on next to the Pepper Market, but the noise wasn't that bad. I really liked the Pepper Market offerings and being seated by the CMs. Magical Express service back to the airport was fine. I'm very excited about returning next year!

And now a few pics from our stay...

our room - 3142


the bathroom


the very nice 22-person hot tub - LOVED this!


the awesome pool - like bath water and not very crowded!


the playground/dig area behind the pool - we'll probably be here a lot next year!


view on the way back to our room


the Dig Site from across the lake


Casitas buildings






what a beautiful resort!

our room was the door shown on the ground floor


I noticed many toddlers dipping their whole arms in the fountain while their parents barely watched them...


this carved horse was very cool!

We only stayed onsite one night and didn't use the bus service to the parks. That said, the few bus stops we encountered didn't have many people waiting or a bus was picking people up every time we went by.

As for our Magical Express experience, we didn't get the pickup time in our express check-out envelope, but I found out what time by calling bell services - the CM I spoke with seemed to think that it was odd we didn't get the normal notification. Our flight didn't leave until after 4PM, so we just caught the 1:45 bus (had to be there by 1:30PM). Not a big deal.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the review and the pics we stayed in the cabanas and enjoyed it, but Casitas is very nice as well, we took a stroll over at night and we liked the courtyards with the fountains. We liked being close to the digsite and the beach with the hammocks, but I am considering requesting Casitas just for a change of scenery and my DS14 did like using the gym over there. Linda
