First time staying on Disney property in a smidge under 3 weeks, therefore first time at Coronado Springs.

Trivial question, does anyone who what the hours of the pool(s) are? No kids, strong swimmers so no need for lifeguard, just when can we swim? I like to swim early in the morning to burn some calories..

I think the Dig Site pool opens at 10a.m. and the water slide there closes at 9p.m. Not sure what time the pool itself closes.

as an add on to the pool question....

I know you can swim at your own risk after the lifeguards are off duty but can you also swim at your own risk before they're on duty, say 8am?

I like to swim before breakfast, say 6:30am time. I'm hardly going to be making a noise swimming 25-30 widths to burn off some calories. Would they be open to do that that early in the morning..

I'm thinking you will be fine to do the quiet pools, but not the main pool.

The casitas section has a lap pool. It might meet your needs better than the Dig Site. The quiet pools are always open.

I don't get this. there are no rooms around the dig site at all. but there are rooms right by any of the quiet pools. so I would think he would "bother" (if at all) less people at the dig site.

hubby loves to go to the dig site early in the morning.. ok, maybe more like 8 AM. he likely won't go in the water for quite some time, but he likes to go down there (or any main pool at any resort) early, before all the kids get there. when it's quiet. sit on a lounger, sip his coffee, read his book, or newspaper.

funny thing. he will be there with about 50 empty lounge chairs around him.. no one but him... when the first family,usuallywith a bunch ofkids, shows up. for some strange reason, they always throw their towels and stuff on the lounge chairs RIGHT next to him! never fails!!

I just wanted to see my counter--exactly three more weeks and I'll be at CSR. I sooooo need this vacation! I keep telling myself only 21 more days and only 14 more work days. Hoping for a room somewhere in the Cabanas!

I don't quite understand, either, but of the three resorts I have been to at Disney, the main pool has always been closed without lifeguards (SAB--BC and Ole Man Isle--POR, and the pool at POFQ), but the quiet pools, which typically don't have life guards remain open.

All of those quiet pools are near rooms, but Ole Man Isle is, well, on an island. With SAB, of course, there is the potential for pool hoppers. Perhaps it's because of the slides and the potential for more danger with all of the "stuff" (for lack of a better term) at the feature pools?

I made it to page 78 and had to stop reading so I could finally post! Hi, everyone!!!

I spent my childhood taking day trips to WDW - grew up about an hour away. It has been more than 10 years since we last visited - our youngest two children do not remember anything about our trip, as they were both under 3 years old at the time! We've been planning this trip since December, and I think we FINALLY have everything nailed down! We started out as a group of 6 (me, DH, and the Fab Four <-- our great kids!) and we're now down to a travel party of 4. We'll be staying at CSR in a preferred room w/ Free DDP. I am guilty of being a resort changer, that is true... but, I'm more excited now than ever!

After reading a big part of this thread, I am so happy that we are going to be staying at CSR! Thank you all so much for providing such a great source of information for everyone - I am ridiculously excited!!!
