Can anyone tell me what non-soda and coffee choices there are?
I know at Pop last year there was Gold Peak tea, lite lemonade, blue powerade and hot chocolate. Are any of these at CSR? DH and DS18 will be fine with soda, but the rest of us don't care for it.

We are booked at CSR 9/29-10/6 with FD. We've stayed here before about 5 years ago and loved it, and can't wait to return!

We decided to save a little and we're just getting a standard room, and we're going to request Cabanas 9A or Casitas 4. If we don't get either of these buildings (which are standard but still close-ish to El Centro) we might use the internal transport system occasionally; I saw on one of the sites that it's a new feature to transport guests from El Centro to different buildings. Has anyone used it?

Excited for our first stay at CSR. We will be there 9/23-9/28 and I'm driving myself crazy trying to decide which days we should spend at each park. I have our ADRs, but keep obsessing over things wondering if I got it "right". I was very nervous since this is our firs stay at CSR, but this thread has calmed me down quite a bit! Thanks for all the valuable insight.

From what I recall there were those same offerings.

Do they have hot chocolate? I don't remember it. We went soon after they changed to the center of pepper market dining room station and never did check the other. I hope so.
And I really wish they would have regular lemonade. I hate the light stuff.

Is there any kind of height requirement for the water slide? How do they determine who is old enough/big enough to use it? And can adults do it too?

Adults definitely can use the slide! I am not sure about height requirements; however, my son was 4 the last time we went and not necessarily tall for his age (he was tall enough for several rides like Kali River Rapids, TOT etc. so maybe 35-38"). Not sure how much help that is but the time before when he was 2 they let him go down the slide at POR and I caught him at the bottom. They do not allow you to go down with your child, I do remember that.

We're excited for our first stay at CSR in November! Originally planned to be at POR but with the FD exclusion...well you know the story. Anyways, can't wait for our stay and will be following along.

Just started planing to return to CSR for free dining! We went several years ago and did all our planing on the old FAQ by Buzz and he had his own website as well, I was looking for the website and can't find it. I see Buzz isn't doing the FAQ anymore, did something happen to him? Just curious.

Does CSR still have the different style refillable mugs than other resorts?

He still has a website but it's not a Tripod site anymore. Just Google "Buzz Coronado Springs" and you'll find it.
He was banned from Disboards a few years ago. I won't get into details.
ETA: Same mugs as everybody else.
