    Question Got an email to upgrade to Coronado springs

    Got an email to upgrade from POP to CSR for $33 more per night. Sounds great but never stayed at CSR. Please let me know all pro and cons of this resort. Thanks in advanced

    We loved it. Its been a while since we stayed but our experience in 2005 was a great one and it is still one of our favorite Disney Hotels. The food court is really good and different than the other typical resort food courts. The rooms were really nice, the gift shop and lobby very pretty. My son loved the pool and they have bus stops spread around the resort so its never a long walk to a bus stop.

    We were just there in November and it is in need of a refurbishment. It probably hasn't been touched since MississippiDisneyFreak stayed there. lol It isn't that it is bad, it just is not worth paying the price. The rooms aren't going to be an upgrade at all, they are just your typical little hotel room no different than the values really. The food options are pretty good though. It is a huge spread out resort so depending on where you end up, it could be a journey to the main building with the restaurants.

    Most likely what is at play here is bookings are down so they are trying to move people into resorts with low occupancy so they can make some rooms available in the popular resorts like POP in hopes of drawing in more reservations.

    It's a very nice resort but very big and spread out ..... depending on what you're paying for POP, 33$ more a night might not be much of a value. Pop is a great resort and I love the hour-glass lake for running, plus the food court at Pop is awesome.

    Eh, I'd stick with Pop and save the money. I would have said go for it if they were going to switch you for free.

    Stayed there once and wasn't impressed at all. Back in 2014 and our room was in rough shape and I thought the grounds looked unkempt and overgrown, and the food court was disgusting and expensive.

    I have had the exact opposite experience there. Though, if you change your post to say POR, that would describe our experience there and I gave them two chances. Just further proof that everyone has different experiences!

    My favorite thing at CSR is the themed pool area. Large pool and hot tub as well as a great pool bar. Never had an issue finding a lounge chair either. Another plus I found was the bus service was really good. It was better than some deluxe resorts.

    LOL! The main pool was closed for our visit for some random maintenance issue so we never saw it. And, the bus service for us was abysmal! We started that trip at Cabana Bay and after one night, we were wishing we were back there instead!

    Love it! Gorgeous resort, with many deluxe amenities, like Christine mentioned. We've stayed there more times than I can remember. Now that we've bought DVC, I'm actually a
    little sad our stays there will likely be less frequent. $33 more a night than POP? I'd do it in a heartbeat!

    For $33 more a night I'd switch. We really enjoyed our stay at Coronado Springs. The room was nice. You'll have some more space in the room, you get sliding doors to close off the bathroom/sink area, and you'd have queen beds instead of double beds. The main pool has one of the better pool slides.

    POP was $108 per night. For CSR base rate (no discount at the time we are going) shows $185 per night.

    It sounds like its a tie with positives and negatives. So I think I will do it

    Thank you everyone for the input

    I would also go with it. We have been to POP many times and CSR once, but I thought it was lovely and the bus service great.

    In a heartbeat!
    Love CSR!!!
    Find a hammock and sip your Margarita!
    Since it is a convention hotel, the rooms are bigger than the values.
    Have a great time!
    There's a great big beautiful tomorrow!

    We stayed there in 2012 and Loved it! The room was roomy enough and the grounds were beautiful. We requested to be near a bus stop and we were near Bus Stop 3. It was a longer walk to the Main building but that way we enjoyed the resort grounds.

    Pop buses do not share. All-Stars do, but not Pop.

    My family stayed there 6 years ago, so I don't know what new things have been added. Back then, they had just refurbished the rooms to queens. We loved it! My young son said after dinner one night, "I want to be a Mexican when I grow up"!
