We returned last week from our first stay at Coronado Springs. We had a split stay, 4 nights at CBR, and 11 nights at CSR. With this visit I have now stayed at each moderate resort. In my opion CSR is by far the most beautiful. The landscape is very tropical. Plants and flowers everywhere. The grounds here are better than most of the deluxe resorts. We stayed in Casitas #1 for the first part of our stay, then we had to move over to Cabanas 9b. Both of these rooms were in great locations. The Casitas were the nicest section of the resort. Lots of courtyards and fountains through out. Some of these buildings were 4 storys high in this section. I was a little concerned that I would not like that but they fit in to the theme well. The Cabanas were nice, not as much landscaping and themeing, but still very nice. We had a room that looked out over the beach and part of the water. There was a couple of days when you couldn't go near the beach though. It was covered in what looked like bee's flying low over the sand. After 4 days at CSR, unfortunately a big convention started and we were stuck in the middle of it. Most of the people involved were put into the Casitas. I heard there were 3,000 of them. They had hospitality rooms set up all around us. I guess the people who were running for office in an election that was going on, set these rooms up to get votes. They were serving food and drinks out of these rooms. Lots of drinks. They were wheeling in cases of beer 16 to 20 at a time. Lot of people were congregating on the walkways right outside our door eating, smoking and drinking. There were also lots of signs hung up all around soliciting votes and saying where the hospitality rooms were. Everytime we left our room we felt like we were intruding on their party. As you walked up to the buildings there were people all over the balconies on each level. All drinking and having a good time. I don't blame the people who were there for the convention. They weren't bad people. They were just doing what they came there to do. I think the resort should have been more aware of what was coming in and not put us, or any other family, in the middle of it. One night there was almost a fight outside our door. Two really drunk guys were yelling at each other, cursing up a storm, one guy was yelling "I'm going to kill you". Someone split them up before they started to fight. It just was not very Disney like at all. So the next morning we were moved to Cabanas 9B. The Dig Site was awesome. The pool and slide were great. Everything you need is right there. Food, drinks, arcade, playground, volleyball, hot tub, and a little stand selling pool related items. I think we spent about 5 full days at the pool. Lots of room and chairs. This is the best pool I have been to so far. The Pepper Market was okay but I think the prices were too high on most things. I can't see paying $13 to $15 for a plate of chinese food. Thats just too much. The burgers were a little bigger than others, and served on a better bun, they were priced about the same as the other resorts. They had a bigger selection of food than other resorts. I didn't like the desserts. I think it was $3.95 for one scoop of ice cream. When you are buying 5 it adds up quick. It didn't seem like there was much to choose from. Then they add in that 10% fee, for what I don't know. I think we had our mugs filled twice out of all the times we ate there. My brother in-law asked for some water once and they told him to find someone else and walked away. Lines weren't really an issue for us. We maybe had to wait 10 minutes once. We did see some really long lines at times when passing by though. The bus service was great. Most of the time there was a bus waiting for us when we walked up, both at the resort and parks. I think the most we had to wait was about 15 minutes once. Over all I did like the resort. I loved the tropical feel there. I felt it was not very Disney for some reason. Maybe it was because they do not have Mickey Bars there. Maybe it was all the convention people everywhere. (yes, I know it is a convention resort) That is something I'm just not used to seeing at Disney.
