    Disney's CORONADO SPRINGS RESORT Information & Questions

    Hopefully someone can offer up a current resort calendar...but I can tell you there were poolside activities when we were there last year.

    11 yr old not liking adult menus, flexibility question.

    Your 11 year old shouldn't have any issue ordering a kids meal. DS12 ordered off the kids menu at all of our non-AYCTE meals last year. (I don't think a server would bring an increased portion without asking if you want it. )

    How many character meals without the dining plan

    Our trip last April was four "Disney Adults." We had 6 park days with at least one TS meal a day (QS grazing other meals), including 3 character meals. We still ended up spending less (tips and all) than the dining plan would have cost- partially because we don't typically order DDP style...

    RO Reservation update when rates released?

    I don't know if the price will really stick....but I was told yesterday that my rate booked February 2019 for February 2020 wouldn't change if I left the reservation alone.....and that booking the same 6night AoA suite stay new yesterday would cost approx $300 more. We will see what happens next...

    In need of some mathematical calculations....

    You may want to post your question on the dining plan forum (top of Restaurants forum). Folks there may have enough experience to offer some answers without having to see all of the math. Beyond that, all I can offer is map it out....which you've already done to some extent. You've listed 9...

    RO Reservation update when rates released?

    @Farro and @Capitalangel FWIW I pulled up my reservation email / deposit receipt from February. It doesn't say anything about the rate changing based on rack rates being released....just says price won't change as long as I don't make any changes. Good grief. I am more curious and impatient...

    RO Reservation update when rates released?

    Similar experience talking to two different CMs....I won't believe it until we hit next Tuesday though. We will have to circle back next week!

    RO Reservation update when rates released?

    You can call and make a room only reservation before rack rates for a time period are released (up to 499 days before check out date)...they quote an amount that reflects (I think) the highest current year rate, noting that the true rack rate is still unknown.

    RO Reservation update when rates released?

    I know discounts won't be out yet and aren't applied automatically. I will be watching for that as time goes by. I am referring to resort room rack rates. I made the reservation 499ish days out- well before rates were released.....I thought such early RO reservations were updated by the system...

    RO Reservation update when rates released?

    It's my first RO reservation...so I am not sure what to expect from MDE. If I don't see any communication regarding a price update for the reservation, I will call next Monday.....but the irrationally impatient planner in me really wants to know what to expect 8-)

    RO Reservation update when rates released?

    I have a room only reservation for February 2020. When rates are released next week, will I automatically receive an email with the updated cost? Will I have to call? Will it show up in the resort "details" section on my MDE? ( I am eager to see the official $ number.....and eager to compare...

    50's Prime Time Cafe

    I picked 50sPTC for our April 2018 trip partially because the menu wasn't too adventurous for picky eaters. I copied and pasted the below from a thread I responded to previously...... "We ate at 50's Prime Time for the first time in April - 2 boys, 11 and 15, were with us. Everyone enjoyed...

    Off or onsite for family of 6 teens/tweens- what do you suggest?

    I totally get that! All five of us were in a one room "suite" (a one nighter en route to our final destination) last fall. DS16 took the little foldout, DH and I took one Queen and DS20 and DS12 were in the other. I woke up during the night to find DS20 sleeping on the hard floor to get...

    Disney's CORONADO SPRINGS RESORT Information & Questions

    All of the resort rooms are refurbished. As for walking distances, it depends on what you want to be close to. We stayed in Casitas (bldg 2- preferred") and found the walk to El Centro and the Dig Site short enough. We liked using the Casitas bus stop (bus stop 2 which, at this point, is...

    AoA Suite vs 2 Pop rooms

    If you don't mind my asking, is it the room (decor, furniture...) or the resort (grounds, amenities....) itself that makes you prefer Pop? Or both?

    AoA Suite vs 2 Pop rooms

    Any experience that time of year?Likelyhood of large teen tour groups? ETA I pulled up some posts stemming from a similar question when I was looking into ASMu suites....was left with the impression that February less impacted than July by the teen groups.

    AoA Suite vs 2 Pop rooms

    Thanks for the reminder....we did look at that idea knowing it would be cheaper. I can't remember why we dismissed it (Skyliner maybe?)....will be sure to explore the idea again.

    AoA Suite vs 2 Pop rooms

    I am going to throw out another thought - I just remembered (and did do some dis searching) that I would really like to avoid the huge teen tour groups.....one positive about AoA is that they normally wouldn't stay there. Anyone have idea of whether wee preceding Presidents Day (Feb 8-14ish)...

    AoA Suite vs 2 Pop rooms

    Interesting thought. The dining plan would not have saved us any $ last trip with everyone in one room/reservation....but I can run the DxDP cost vs credits if only 2 of us have it. Something else to fill my need to research and plan :-)

    AoA Suite vs 2 Pop rooms

    Knowing that it is likely to be the case makes it worth considering whether or not we would would be just as comfortable with a Pop stay.
