If we check out late enough and you check in early enough.........

Actually, I added one more night to the trip: a Lion King Suite at AoA!!! We fly home 9/3!

Flying in from California so no hope of checking in early. But adding a day now that is good .... a woman after my own heart!!!

I am so excited, we just booked our trip for my 50th birthday in December, and we'll be staying at Coronado Springs!

DH offered to take me to Disney for my 50th, but is not a huge Disney fan, so I thought that CSR would be a good choice for him as it seems like a quieter resort?

I only have stayed on property once, traveled with friends last year and they stayed at Pop Century, which was okay, but I wanted something that would be a step up from a Value.

You made a great choice! CSR is a really peaceful resort!

Ended our DVC holiday stay with 2 days at CSR. Great value. Moderate prices with deluxe level amenities.

We leave on Saturday for Coronado and I was wondering if anyone could tell me about the arcade. We have a 3 year old that loves to play arcade games. What type of games do they have there? Do they have some where you win tickets and can trade them in for prizes?

Hi Caralyn....

If I'm remembering correctly (we stayed at CSR in February), the arcade is small. It has about 10-15 games. I remember a car or motorcycle type of game (one where you sit on), a basketball game, I believe. They had foosball in the middle of the room. (Hope I'm remembering this correctly,lol) I don't believe they give out tickets. The kids just play for fun.

Hope you have a great time!

Most of the games are geared towards older kids and there are no tickets for prizes. They do have 20 or so games and many of them are sit on games with motorcycles, cars or airplanes. The playground is also right outside the doors of the arcade.

We've booked our first ever stay at CSR for Feb 1-10 and I was really excited about it but have also since read some not great reviews about the food at Pepper Market. I had previously read great things about it and that was a plus on our list - both kids love all things taco, nacho, quesadilla, so figured it would be great for our hang around days.

Previously we've stayed at Port Orleans, CBR and OKW. The kids loved the pool at CBR and I thought at CSR they'd have lots of fun on that slide!!

Also, I am wondering what the chances are of getting a PIN for dining now that we've already booked. We did the room and tickets pkg but not dining and when I called to add an extra day, the CM was suggesting adding the dining plan. DH says we blew any chance of getting a PIN by booking and we should have waited but CSR was my first choice when we ended up at CBR five years ago under the CAA 4/3 deal but it was fully booked. I guess I can always hope that they release dining to the public for our dates and I can add it on.

After I booked, I got a free dining pin email. That being said it wasn't for my dates. It was close though, off by a few days. So I think there is still hope

Which section did you stay in? Do you happen to remember the building number?
