    KatMark it's soon time to go isn't it?!?! Is your surprise still a surprise? So far mine is! Thanks for the pic of you, now I know who to look for - but I think you leave early on the 14th - correct? There's always next time!

    To the poster asking about views: I go to WDW a few times a year & never ever pay for views. I'd rather put the money towards my next trip. Even if I look at dumpsters or the parking lot, I can leave my room & in a few short steps see the most beautiful things around the resort. A nice view isn't high on my priority list for a Disney trip.

    Tara, yes, it's still a surprise. Mark finds out in about 4-1/2 hours.

    We arrive tomorrow, the 6th, and leave on Tuesday, the 11th.

    If we don't meet, there is next time.

    Have a magical time.

    I hope the lines look just like that! :thumbsup2

    We should be arriving at CSR around 10:15. I'm hoping the rooms are ready, we can drop off our stuff, and head to AK for a few hours before dinner at Maya Grill. :cool1:

    Hi,

    I'm new to the forum and really appreciate seeing the pictures of Coronado Springs. I'm a veteran Disney traveler considering a stay at CSR during the Princess 1/2 Marathon this year (because CSR is hosting the Fit to be a Princess Expo). Reading some reviews, I'm a little nervous about the convention center and the reviews stating that CSR does not have the "Disney feel." What are your opinions on this? I do the love the Disney themes of the Value Resorts and that's what I'm used to, but Coronado Springs looks like an attractive resort. Do convention attendees detract from the Disney feel? How does CSR compare to the other moderates? Any help will be appreciated!:)

    Sorry everybody...we got involved with packing, dropping off my car by my brother so he and mom can come tomorrow to stay with dog while we are gone.

    Let's just say that he danced like he did with Eeyore in September and was totally surprised. He couldn't believe it and asked who paid for it? :lmao::lmao::lmao:

    9:40 a.m. flight in the morning; I promise I will update with at least one picture a day on my PTR if I can and FB updates.

    Kathy, so glad the surprise went well! What a great gift for Mark (that you can enjoy as much lol) especially given the year you guys have had. :hug:

    I haven't checked fb this much since my niece was having her baby a year ago!

    Have a great time, can't wait for your updates and photos.

    Safe trip!

    I think CSR has as much of a Disney feel as any of the other moderates and deluxes. The values are in a class by themselves with the giant icons. CSR is understated, but it is definitely Disney to us (even our kids). You probably won't notice any conventioners at all - generally you might see some people with nametags and might notice Pepper Market being crowded at breakfast, but you'll also notice that the pool and buses are pretty empty for the size of the resort.

    We've stayed at all the values and moderates, and none of the moderates have the big metal sculptures that accompany the values (the closest may be the alligator sculptures and mardi gras details at POFQ.) The themeing tends to be more inline with World Showcase or some of the Disney restaurants- not characterish, but still completely themed and amazing. For CSR, it's like a Latin American paradise, and, IMO, it's the prettiest/most relaxing moderate. While there may not be a giant Goofy at a hockey rink, you'll still feel totally immersed in the magic. Plus the hot tub and hammocks should be awesome post race! That's my plan for after the marathon in January!

    We didn't have any trouble with conventioneers nor was the size of the resort really an issue. I love this place and can't wait to go back!!!
