Disney Food Blog just reported the opening of a new table service restaurant at CSR. "Las Ventanas" is located next door to the Rix Lounge. It serves breakfast and lunch. Disney Dining Plan is accepted (1 TS).

Yeah, I saw this on Buzz's site. This should really help with the breakfast rush at CSR. I look forward to trying it next trip.

That's awesome. Nice to have an additional place to get a bite.

I am hoping for an early opening for May...anyone know more on that?
May 17th is my birthday and I really did not want to spend the morning waiting for the dig site to open but the kids really want to open the pool and May 18th is our day to try tackle SWW so there is no way we can wait around for the pool to open that day.

I'm sure other more frequent visitors to CSR will chime in but of the three times that I've been there (May of '11, December of '12 and last month) it's either been 10am-9pm (the last two visits) or 9am-10pm (May of '11).

Banana's at Business class?

We'll be at CS next month for Easter as well as in October. Both are booked business class. Does anyone know if there are bananas served at the continental breakfast? I know it seems like a silly question, but all the pictures I have seen are just oranges and apples. DH and I only eat bananas, lol! Thanks!

Yes, there were bananas when we were there the beginning of February, I had a couple, they were very tasty!

Bananas every morning Thanksgiving week 2013. Loved the mango yogurt with the fresh berries and granola though!

LOL I'm another who loves the idea of this - but I twitch at the idea of hanging around the resort until 10! We aren't having any resort days (midday naps instead) or else I would plan it for then, but I am still tempted. Maybe on a waterpark day... But 10am is really late when in Disney!

We have been going to WDW since 1999, after 2001 we became DVC members and had at least 2 trips per year. We love trying out WDW resorts, but we have never stayed at Coronado. But that is going to change soon! We love the feel of the resort, after visiting there 2 weeks ago while on our trip. We walked around the waterway, checked out the main pool and arcade, and just soaked it all in before dinner.

We booked Maya Grill, which we fell in love with, so much so, we canceled another ressie we had and ate there again Can anyone tell me the name of the guitarist who plays there and if he has any CDs out by chance?

Hey CSR people! Haven't posted here in some time. I am helping some friends plan a trip down to WDW, they aren't sure if they want to stay at. CSR and POFQ are the final two resorts.

My friend said she had seen that CSR now has a internal bus that runs around the bus stops and then over to Blizzard Beach and then back again, doesn't go to any other parks. I looked at the first few posts and didn't see anything about this being added, nor did I see this when I skimmed over the last 15-20 pages. She couldn't find the link after once she told me this.

Has this been added? If it has, when was it added? If true, does the bus just circle the property once BB is closed for the day? Sorry for the questions, but she asked me about it and I haven't heard anything about this at all (but I don't keep up on CSR news much after buying DVC). If true, that is awesome that something like this was added.

Yes, that is correct. It started sometime in the fall. It circles over to BB until the mini-golf closes. It also goes to BB for access to the mini-golf while BB is closed for its annual refurbishment. It circles the stops in order 1-4 (not 2,3,4,1 like the park buses) then over to BB and back through again.

That is really cool to learn. I completely forgot that a mini-golf is right there. Seeing the BB is so close, I would think that it runs fairly frequent. I will have to pass that information onto her. Thanks!
