    :goodvibes OK CSR fans, would love to know why you are such big fans. We are spoiled deluxers/DVC/FW cabin fans. (I know FW cabins is actually considered a moderate but love the convenience of the full kitchen, separate bedroom and most of all no common walls-no one above, below or next to you)...however due to budgetary constraints we are really looking to stay at a moderate and CSR tops my list after reading consistently positive reviews here on the DIS.

    We have been on the grounds on several occasions so we are familiar with the layout and have eaten at the Pepper Mkt (but just a little perturbed that they still don't honor the TIW card).

    We would probably choose a 'preferred' bldg location if needed. But we will have a car onsite so we are able to drive around the area but 'prefer' to bus to the parks (we usually drive to other resorts for dinner, etc).

    Thanks for your input.

    We have stayed at the Coronado a total of ten times. All have been perfect stays except for the one last month. And, that had nothing to do with the resort, but with the fact that the Pop Warner kids and parents were there and they were loud, obnoxious and oblivious to what their kids were doing.

    We used to stay deluxe all the time (the Contemporary and the Poly), but once the kids got older and sporting camps started, college expenses, it was no longer feasible to spend the money on the deluxes. We never once regretted moving down to a moderate and have loved everything about the Coronado. With the queen beds, fitness center, massage, hot tub, dining options, several bar options (including a lounge with dancing on the weekends), it has everything we needed. The only reason we have not stayed there for our annual vacation lately, is we've been able to get a better price renting points to stay in a studio at a DVC resort.

    If the price of the CSR were the same as a DVC studio, we'd be back at the CSR in a heartbeat.

    As far as paying for a preferred room, the only thing that puts you closer to is the main building (registration, food, lounge and gift shop); you will be further from the main pool. Since there is parking all around the resort and you'll have a car, I wouldn't pay for preferred. If you were put in the Ranchos, for instance, you could always drive your car up there or take a bus from your location (the bus stops are 2, 3, 4 and 1; 1 is the main building).

    CSR is our favorite mod and the only one we've stayed at for more than 5 years. We are DVC members but try to include at least 1 night at CSR because we love it. If given a choice of CR, the Poly, YC, or CSR, I'd take CSR every time.
