I was just checking another site and it stated It’s the usual collection of generic Disney merchandise with no resort specific merchandise. This was posted on 1/13/2013.

They did, but like another pp said, it's back. Some resorts have more stuff than others. We stopped at Panchitos last August and they had quite a bit of stuff.

When I was there in Feb, the most resort spec stuff that I saw were the pins. I think there were two or three for CSR. Also some magnates and postcards. Nothing too thrilling.

That's odd... friends of ours just got back about 3 weeks ago and they bought some CSR shirts, hats and I thought they said they picked up a canvas bag (which made sense to me b/c I saw all of that stuff back in August).

What is the possibility in getting a free upgrade from a standard room to a preferred or water view room when one is going on their hunnymoon? Any suggestions for the free upgrade?

You've posed a pretty loaded question here. Most would say a free upgrade is unexpected pixie dust that you just don't ask for unless you are willing to pay for. Why not just book the room you actually want?

I'm of the opinion, ask if you want but don't be upset if you don't get a freebie from them.

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

Has anyone ever stayed at a busy time of year and had an issue finding empty chairs at the main pool? Last year we stayed at the BC in August and finding a spot to sit by SAB was a nightmare somedays...just want to be mentally prepared if that's also an issue at CSR. Last time we stayed at CSR was Oct '09 and we only made it to the main pool once. TIA.

We were there last year, first week of April (spring break and F&G) and we never once had an issue finding pool chairs. Actually, LOTS were empty in the shaded area. The ones over in the direct sun were mostly taken, but you can scoot your chair wherever you want. Even at our quiet pool, only 3-6 were ever taken at one time.

We have been there 4th of July and while pool was busy, you could find a place to sit. This is one if the many things we love about Coronado Springs. The main pool is never crowded like the Poly or WL pools.

Thank you for the pictures....I'm so glad to hear this.

I know how busy 4th of July is so this is great news. I remember there was plenty of seats at the quiet pool in the Casitas section when we were last there but this time we want to hit the dig site pool and will most likely do so every day so I needed to mentally prepare myself just in case. As much as we loved SAB at the BC, the chair situation in August was insane and we struggled to find seating for the 4 of us and most times could barely even find 2 together so we'd take turns or share...crazy given the amount of money you spend for that resort.

Thanks again!
