    So this is where I’m getting confused. Is the information at the beginning of this thread outdated or incorrect?

    It seems incorrect. We were first stop (Casitas). Last stop was El Centro. This was before construction.

    It looks like they got Casitas and Cabanas mixed up. I don't think the buses have ever gone that direction around the resort, as they'd be on the wrong side of the road to pull into the stops.

    We're staying at Coronado Springs end of January, preferred room. Which type of room should I request, to get a refurbished one? Thanks!

    Hey all! First time posting in awhile and looking forward to heading back to CSR. I checked the first page and then read the last few pages, but didn't see a definitive answer to my question. What is the current status of refurbished rooms, as in which buildings are done and is there an end date in sight for full completion of existing rooms? Thanks!

    I would simply request a refurbished room.

    Touring Plans is listing the transit times to the parks as:

    MK 23
    Epcot 20
    HS 18
    AK 18

    Does this seem about right on average?

    I know it will take longer because you have to wait for the bus and make stops around the resort first before leaving, but does the actual drive time seem correct? I’m trying to figure out about when we need to leave each day.


    Thanks

    Hi,
    Planning a trip for the fall of this year. Last visit was 2015, and we stayed in building 9A and loved it. We were hoping to request the same this trip, but now reading about construction, wondering if thats a really bad idea. There will be 14 of us, and having the small quiet pool so close would be ideal for the littles to unwind before bed.

    MK seems about right. But the other parks are probably half of what you listed.

    Nice to know. I was worried it might be a lot longer. I’m use to staying places where the bus ride ends up being 30 - 40 minutes to at least one park. 20 minutes just seemed so quick.

    Not to burst your bubble but we have stayed at CSR several times (just booked this morning for arrival Jan 18th) and the hot tub was never really "hot" on any of our stays (more like warm). Hope it has changed since our last stay but that has been our experience. I, too, am looking forward to a hot tub (it is currently a blizzard and 7 degrees here in NY).

    Actual travel times not including waiting for the bus are about:

    MK: 15-18 mins
    EPCOT: 8 mins
    DHS: 6 Mins
    AK: 8 Mins

    CSR is very central to everything.

    Thanks, we’ve stayed here before, but it was ages ago. I remembered the bus ride not being bad, but I had read so many negative reviews of the buses here now, that I was afraid that had changed.

    I found this out on my first stay there. I booked it last minute and got a great deal (I think due to construction).

    I will DEFINITELY be returning!

    We've spent about 75 days at CSR between 2010 and 2016. Usually I would argue that CSR has the best bus service of any resort on WDW property.

    However our last stay was Dec. 2016 just before construction started so I can't say for sure if the construction has had any impact on the bus service.

    We have booked a water view room. Can anyone tell me what might be the best to request that is close to a bus stop and a pool? Thanks in advance!!
