I never liked the PM setup but I always thought they had the best food of any Disney food court. Now that it's set up like other food courts I hope the food quality doesn't suffer.

Us too!!

Unfortunately all the complainers who found the set-up mentalily challenging have been given their way!!

Earlier in our stay it was still the cards. Perhaps yesterday was the first day. Just confirmed it. Yesterday was the first day.

I just wanted to drop in and say that I recently uploaded a "room tour" of my Casitas room. Here it is, if you'd like to check it out:

Please let me know what you think! I have a few other Disney videos on my channel (POFQ room tour, and a quick video of the main area at OKW)

You're welcome, I'm glad to be helpful! The rooms are very spacious, plenty of room to spread out. Careful with the heavy wooden doors near the bathroom area, I hit my knee while closing the door once!

I don't know when the last renovation was, but I have heard reports that CSR is in need of one. I have heard that the next scheduled one is Jan 1, 2015 starting with Cabanas.

We will be there on Nov 1.

I know that the preferred rooms are in the Casitas but does anyone know where the king preferred rooms are or what type view you get!?

Thanks!

If you go to touring plans website you can choose Coronado springs then preferred-king and look at each floor in the preferred buildings and it will show you!

The last renovation was in 2009. My room at CSR has always been fantastic. I don't think they will be updates again until at least 2019-2020 if that.

Our rooms have always been fantastic too!

However that information is correct, room refurb will begin Jan. 2015.

Since we're booked for January 2015, what does a refurb entail? We're two adults, no kids, and we didn't book a King room or a preferred room or anything. (If they touch the pool, then we might have problems! )
