Wording on room request, need to make it today

Ok, trying to figure out the wording. 1st choice is 8a, I like where 8b but the back has a ton of parking lot views. I'm not too picky but those are really close to the parking lot. I also like 9B, but I don't think those are often available. So then I'm kind of torn b/w 9a and 7b. 9a looks like it could be a bit of a walk to the pool w/ that little pond/lake right there to go around. Should I say 8a or 9b 1st choice. Then something else 2nd choice? Trying to give options w/out being complicated.

I would be more inclined to request a section or location rather than a bunch of specific buildings - something like cabanas, with a preference for 8A (this is what one CSR regular always requests) or close to Dig Site, prefer not to have a parking lot view.

The outdoor bar by the lake is open late, though.

It took me from Pool area to the bar by the lake (and back)10 minutes total.. Including waiting for my daquiri to be made and walking slowly...

My only complaint was the early closing of pool bar... Especially when kiddies are watching the movie by pool...

speaking of which.............. I WANT A MANGO DAQUIRI!!!

Why in the world would they have a bar open by the lake later than by the pool? This is disappointing news! I guess I need to look at the map and find out where this bar is that is open later!

Across from El Centro...

Other than the pool bar issue... CSR is the perfect resort IMO

The bar by the lake is outside the main building.food court area. They also have a night club style lounge that is rated the best at WDW that is open until late every night. They have alcohol for sale at Panchitos you can take to the hot tub.

Well after planning for over a year to stay at CSR I have switched my trip to POR (after finally figuring out what requests I wanted to do at CSR ). My travel companion changed from my best friend to my mom and mom wanted to stay there instead. I will still keep up with this thread as Sept 2013 my friend and I will be planning to stay there.

Happy planning everyone!

I'm not sure it does close that early. In any case, the bar at Rix Lounge stays open late.

I copy and pasted the above water view description for CSR from Disney's reservation system. It does not include fountains in the description of water view, only pool or lake. Just wondering if anyone was told different upon check in. We arrive this Friday and have a waterview room booked. Just curious. Thanks!
We have a 'waterview' room reserved as well. I don't really want a 'FOUNTAIN view" will this help on check in if they have given us a fountain view we can say the description says Lake or Pool?

I'm just really not sure where to 'request' a room. We want mostly to be close to the pool, don't care about bus stop since we are driving. i thought it was a good move to reserve a water view but now i'm not sure..

Does anyone know if Coronado Springs could possible be including more rooms in the free dining promotion? Is there even a chance that someone could change their reservation and a room with free dining could open up? Should I just check every day?

Thanks!
