We live in the Southwest so the themeing does not appeal to us as much for the same reason that POR doesnt appeal to you.

We have never stayed at CSR, but have been to both PO resorts. Our stays at POR have been nothing short of magical. The rooms (especially now that they are updated) were clean, the grounds very well taken care of and beautiful and the pool and food court are excellent. We usually take the boat to DTD a couple of times during our stay and DD loves the horse and carriage ride around the property. We are headed back next month to try a royal suite.

While we have never been to CSR, we have heard positive things about the staff and the theming. The only negative we have ever heard was that there was a lot of walking if you were not in a preferred room. I cannot confirm though. We may give CSR a try some time, this year DD10 wanted to be royalty.

Whatever you choose, have a great vacation.

I think the PO resorts are also the only mods with queen beds. This is a big deal for us as we have have a king at home...

No, CSR has always had queen beds. POR just got there's during the update.

I am also trying to decide between these 2 resorts. A pp said that Coronado has the longest slide on property. Is it even longer then the Poly or Beach Club slides? Thanks

I beleive it's not quite as long as the slide at the Beach Club (SAB) ... we've never tried the Poly, so I cannot comment on it. There is a brief discussion/Comparison here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2113575

I know that CSR got Queen beds before POR but they definitely have not always had them.



POR and CSR are my two favorite mods. If I was in your shoes I would try CSR since you have already stayed at POR.

Thanks! I think I'm leaning that way

We have stayed at both CSR and POR (this year actually) and we won't ever go back to CSR if I have anything to say about it.

To me....POR is much prettier with wonderful landscaping, rooms were renovated later than CSR so I thought they were nicer too. It was just a convoluted mess at CSR for us.

POR CM's were much nicer and their food court was much better too. I thought Pepper Market was odd. It took 10 minutes to seat us, 20 minutes more for anyone to get our drinks and only because I asked 2 or 3 times....a manager ended up getting them and it was odd to take a paper around to be stamped with the food you purchased.

The Dig Site was neat....I will give it that. I also thought it was harder to get around than POR and seemed to be hotter too.

Check in at CSR was more harried also. The CM's seemed like that didn't really want to be there.

This was only my experience though. I know people experience different things but we have stayed at POR twice, Pop and Wilderness Lodge and never experienced anything like CSR.

CSR has nicer rooms and I think it should be considered a deluxe. It really has all the amenities. Great theme and nice restaurants and all around great resort.

I've stayed at both, and both are great! However, I don't think CSR rents out bikes or watercraft anymore. Or if they do it is on a very seasonal basis. If your kids really enjoy doing that, I would stick with POR.

Stayed at both. POR wins hands down (and actually, we really prefer POFQ - even our dd8 and ds12!) We really didn't care at all for CSR - other than the pool, which is fabulous. The resort is huge and FEELS huge whereas POR is huge, but doesn't feel it. We didn't like the Pepper Market food court - it's confusing and you actually have to tip (no biggie, but just seems weird to tip in a food court.) Cafe Rix didn't seem up to snuff compared to the other mods. We love the ability to take the boat to DTD from POR. We also didn't like the convention-feel of CSR - there was a convention going on while we were there and it just made it feel less Disney-ish.

So, of the 2, POR gets my vote!
