Just Back From Coronado Springs!

We were first timers to Coronado Springs, and I truly have to say that we LOVED it!!!!!

We were in 8A Cabanas right by the Stop 4 bus stop and close to the Dig Site.

The room was comfortable and we had no issues at all with anything. Mousekeeping did a great job . .. the buses were the best at ANY of the mods we stayed at . .. we never waited for a bus more than 10 minutes, minus our last day 11/10 but I think that because of all the traffic from the 5k that was happening . . .

The resort itself is so pretty and getting from our room to El Centro was a quick walk . . .I don't feel CS is as spread out as CBR . . .

Rix was great for a quick b-fast and mug refill . . .

We will definitely be staying there again!

Glad you had a good stay. If I ever stay there I'd pick Cabanas too. I think the Ranchos section would be pretty far off, similar to the furthest locations at CBR.

We've stayed at CSR a few times and though we've had some mishaps I would gladly go back again. It is a beautiful resort. Glad you enjoyed your trip!!

We got back a week ago from CSR and I concur with all you said! Glad you enjoyed your stay as much as we did. We were also in 8a and loved that location.

YEAHHH! We have never stayed there and can't wait 7 more days!

When you check in can you request a building or do they already have that assigned when you check in?

It will likely be assigned when you check in, but I have requested another area with no hassle. We were placed in Ranchos for our first trip which I knew I didn't want. I nicely asked if there was anything else available and they had one ready in Casitas and let us switch. You can always ask. The worst they can say is they are full and can't accommodate you but it's worth a try

My Family and I feel the exact same way. Going for a walk around the lake after a day in the parks is very relaxing.
