So excited...

We are staying here for the 1st time and I cannot wait. Can someone answer me this? We have a 5 yr old and a 2 yr old, which building should i request that is in realtively close proximity to play area and a bus top. I know we will have to walk but just wondering if there is a "best" area for kiddos?

THANKS

I really DO want to live there!
I circulate my paper clips at work so they all get used or I feel like they'd be sad if they didn't get a "turn".

Personally I think Cabanas 8 is pretty close to Bus Stop (#4) and pretty close to the Dig Site (pool and play).

We are planning to stay at CSR in January, our last stay there was in 2006 and I would love to stay in the same room we had or at least in the same area. I don't know the room # but here is a pic right outside our room~~

and one from the window of the room~~


If anyone knows which area to request, I'd appreciate it

Judging by the picture in the link of the hammock. If you had those hammocks in your section then you need to request Cabanas to stay in the same location as before. Be warned though they are probably the most popular section for requests due to theme & location!

I was told by my travel agent this resort would be considered a deluxe resort if it were on the monorail system.

It is a nice hotel but there are deluxe hotels that are not on the monorail system. Strange thing for the travel agent to say. Deluxe hotels have indoor corridors and CSR does not have this.

Does csr still have their "own" mug or are they now using the same ones as all the other resorts?

Thank you! Since we're going at a low crowd time, we're hoping it won't be a problem to get that section

Hi all!
I'm helping a friend plan a trip and they've been watching youtube videos of Coronado Springs and they really love the look of the refurbished rooms. Were all the rooms redone at the same time or is there a chance they'll be put in an "older" room?
Any insight would be great!
Thanks!
