Coronado Springs Room

Hi Everyone. We will be staying at Coronado Springs in a standard room.. I was wondering where I should try to request so I can be close to main building and a bus stop. At the time of travel I will be 5 months pregnant and will have my 9 month old son with us. I know a request is only that but I thought I would try my luck. Do you think its better to call, fax or what to put in such a request?

I'll be staying in Coronado Springs too and from what I've read, if you want to be close to the main building and the first bus stop (so the bus will be empty when it picks you up) request Casitas section. They have preferred rooms but the buildings right next to the preferred ones (4 & 5) have standard rooms.

We stayed in Casitas building 4. I can tell you that casita building 4, although it has the fitness center and spa, it's own quit pool, laundry room, and very close bus stop, is quite far from the food court, and super far from the main pool.

In your case, I might be inclined to suggest to consider a business class upgrade which would put you in building 9B. 9B is directly in between the food court and main pool, as well as steps from a bus stop. Business class includes free daily breakfast in your building's business class lounge. Plus, you wouldn't need to walk over to the main building for a soda refill as sodas would be available in your lounge (free).

Casitas 4 is 3-4 min walk from food court. Not what I would consider quite far.

Agreed. Casitas 4 is the first non-preferred building. I think it is the perfect location, near the food court and right behind the first bus stop picked up and dropped off from the parks.

We requested Casitas 4 everytime before there was Business Class. Great location.
