Is there transportation from the main building to the outlying villages/buildings? One member of our party is arriving late and departing early (via DME) and will have luggage. Can he get a ride from the front to our room? How does that work?

We got a ride with our luggage on a golf buggy from the front of the resort to our room at around 10pm at night. Bell services were more than happy to assist

Thanks. He has a 6AM departure the day he leaves. Will there be a Bell Services person to pick him up to take him to the DME bus? And will DME make him have to leave at 3AM?!

Here's a link to the resort map:

CSR Map

The first bus stop for the parks is behind the Casitas (Bldgs 1-5), not the one at the main building. As the previous poster said, there isn't really a location close to the first stop and the main pool. Cabanas 8A is probably the closest to both the pool and a bus stop, but it's the 3rd stop. I don't know how crowded the buses get. It might not be too bad, depending on when you're going. We're going in a couple of weeks - requested 7B (two adults, no kids) - so I'm interested to see how the buses are.

Fastpass+

For those of you doing a split stay, therefore getting Magic Bands...

Have any of you been told that the Fastpass+ that you have booked during your Coronado stay will not be valid? I just called the Magic Band customer service number because I was having a technical issue with one of our bands for our October trip and the CM told me that my FP+ selections that I made online would not be honored during the dates that we are at CSR. We are spending the first night of our trip at AoA (room only booking), so we were eligible to get Magic Bands, but they are now telling me that all the FP+s that I booked online 'will be dropped off' because CSR is not part of the testing yet (which I already knew). Just wondering if this is correct. I have read from several of you that you were able to get the FP+s for your entire trip because the first part of your stay is at POR. I'm just not sure if this CM knew what she was talking about, although she had me on hold for 20 minutes while she discussed it with a manger. She did say that I could keep my FP+s for the first day of my trip since we are staying at AoA that night. I just can't understand why the online system would allow me to book the FP+s for my entire trip if they would not be honored.

Got an email today from my travel agent saying that the new system allows you to check in online 60 days in advance How does that work so far ahead? Anyways, I keep second guessing staying here..someone tell me I made the right choice. Our dd will be a month shy of 7 years old when we get to Disney and I want to make sure she'll enjoy herself. She doesn't swim yet and won't go down water slides. Is there a smaller area of water that she can go to if not the big pool?

There are quiet pools in each area. We haven't even been to the dig site yet and not sure we will to be honest. For such a large resort it is so quiet and peaceful

Was there last week with a split stay. Had a room only 2 night stay at Pop prior to our CSR stay. Our magic bands which we got from our Pop stay worked the entire time at CSR. Our fast passes worked too! CM at check in wasn't sure everything would work with the bands... Do glad she was wrong!!!

THANK YOU!! I'm so glad to hear this. I went ahead and booked the FP+ for my entire trip with the hopes that they would work. The CM that I spoke with was adamant that they would not work after we checked out of AoA and moved to CSR. In fact she told me that they would be 'dropped from my Magic Band at some point'... whatever that means???

No problem with kids, there was a teenager when I was there, but I only ran into 5 rooms of people while there. They have a wii if your kids are into that, the lounge staff are the nicest cms that I have ever come across, and are super helpful and accommodating.

Is there some sort of map which shows where the corner rooms are located in each building?
