Advice...Coranado Springs

Has anyone stayed here? With Disney's fall discounts being released today I tried to rebook with a moderate resort but they are 100% full except for Coranado Springs! I booked it but now am super nervous about what DH will say...I know it is family friendly because it is Disney but it really does look conventiony... Any advice good or bad would be appreciated!

I have heard a lot of good things. I feel like someone on this baord stayed there--but it may be someone who is no longer on the board?  I hear the pepper market is fun :)

We have stayed at CSR 4 times and LOVE it!  Its a beautiful resort surrounding a lake, however it is very big (they do have the bus routes set up to get you back and forth from the main hall to your room).  We think they have the best bus system of any resort we have stayed at, we have never stood or experieced overcrowded buses expect after MK fireworks.   The resort has an amazing pool at the bottom of a giant pyramid, the largest hot tub on property, and a really neat playground area.  We always request a room in the Cabanas section, its the prettiest area and its right on the beach area, we love to lay in the hammocks there.  The only downside for us is the Pepper Market, we find it very expensive for counter service food but since you have the DDP that wont matter!  Twice there have been large conventions going on but we never see those people.  The convention hall area is in the main hall but really seperated from the main areas.  You have to go looking for it to see it.

I haven't stayed there either but have heard good things! In fact my sister stayed there for a few days last year and really liked it.

There was a poster on here who stayed there and did a trip report (stagemomx3 I think, not sure if she is still around) in spring 2008. (I only remember that because it was when we were getting ready for our first big trip!) You should still be able to find it if you dig back far enough in the trip report threads.

I think you'll love getting to try some place new, it's definitely on my (rather long) list of resorts to try, lol! :)

Thanks girls! I am glad to hear good things about the resort! However, I couldn't sell DH on it and neither of us were really happy with POP once the discounts were announced so we are headed to AKL in a standard view room! I am super excited! Next time I want POFQ though...not sure if it because I can't get it this time or if I just keep hearing great things but I really want to stay there in the future!
