New pictures, any updates will be more than welcome so I can try to keep the site up to date. Thanks!

I believe Laguna does serve food. It's a VERY SMALL selection, mind you, but I do remember saying I was going to order their coconut shrimp before we went home. Never did! LOL

Really. I never noticed that in all of the times I walked by and the one time we stopped and had a drink. I think you can order appetizer type things in the Rix Lounge, but I wasn't aware of that ability at Laguna.

It could have been Rix but I really think it was Laguna. I just remember sitting outside sipping on a margarita and looking at those little square menus they place on the tables.

I've been wrong before!

When dh & I were there last month they did serve food at the Laguna bar. The waitress taking your drink order would take your food order as well. We never ordered while sitting out there(to busy enjoying our drinks lol) so I am not sure if the food was from the PM or Rix Cafe.

Well, I learned something new today. Thanks for sharing this with me. I'll have to remember that on our next trip. We could go there for a drink and an appetizer before we head to dinner!

Casitas 2 and 3 are also very nice. Keep in mind that only the 4th floor of those buildings have been rehabbed.

Casitas 3 sits on the lake side, while Casitas 2 sits behind it.
I prefer 3 because I think that it had better standard views than 2.
Thank you so much for the information. I am hoping 4 will be done, but if not I will ask for 3. I thought the view was much nicer there too. Any chance we will run into upon checking in on the 10th?

Can you believe how dead the mall is? So much is closed down. Also I cannot believe this snow, what happened to our nice days?


KatMark- I think we are getting your snow now. It is to snow all day.

I'm sorry. If it is any consolation, the snow basically melted yesterday afternoon when the sun came out. There are only a few spots that still have any. Hopefully this is the last of it!

Yes I do work at Coronado.

So there are not any 2 story areas in the ranchos or 3 story areas in the casitas?
Nope.

Do you happen to know if they'll still valet park for people with handicapped parking? I know they'll do that at Port Orleans even though there's no valet.
We do not.

Would you know if all the renovated rooms will have the exact same decorations? Or will they be different to go with the section they're in?
They're all the same. The theming outside is what makes each section different.

Also I was wondering if there's still an arcade in the main building. When I called to ask another question today they mentioned that there's only one arcade - the Iguana. Everything I've read says there's another one called Jumping Beans.
They removed the Jumping Beans arcarde to put in Cafe Rix, so we only have the one at the main pool.
I answered in purple.

Only if you check in between 10 pm and 8:30 am on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
I work the Graveyard shift.

Considering CSR

We were at DW last october. We stayed in a cabin at FW. Kids loved it. (DD 8 and DS 6) We are considering coming for FD this year, and I had a few questions:

1. Do you think kids will be disappointed by lack of "mouse stuff" at CSR? I think we will get enough mouse stuff at the parks, but just wanted to check.

2. We drove last time, and took ALOT Of stuff. We are considering flying, so not as much stuff. If we order from Garden GRocer, will CSR people bring it to our room?

3. Will someone at the desk bring our luggage to our room, or will we have to haul it ourselves?

4. Any problems getting buses to early ADR's inside the parks. Would like to do Crystal Palace at 8 am, and would be worried we wouldn't make it.

5. Any problems getting a cab if we want? How much would one be for a family of 4 to say DTD?

That's all I can think of for now. Thanks
