    We have reservations starting in mid May and requested the cabanas. Do you know if they are going to renovating them during that time frame?

    Ah I was hoping they might add a pull down bed like at cbr and por. I know they sometimes tweak the test rooms

    I like the new bed runners better and so much space for toiletries. Not sure about enough storage for family of four clothes though

    Hope we can get more rooms and remodels with walk in showers, instead of tubs. Looks good.

    Ah I just revisited the photos Buzz posted there are actually 6 drawers for clothes so that means 2 drawers each for girls in our family, and dh can live out of suitcase for 10 nights so that is actually ok and doable ! As long as we have our cosmetic counter space ;)

    I just received an email from Disney today about the resort renovations. It specified that although there is construction happening, the resort amenities will all still be open during.

    If you try to reserve in the Ranchos section then you have a better chance of getting a room. Although only 7a has been completed to my knowledge.

    7a is close. It should have been opened by now but there has been some delays.

    Wow very nice room. Thanks for sharing. I love the big tv and the new bathroom design makes it appear much more spacious.

    Yikes! Is that what they're all going to look like, or has the décor been toned down for "business" guests? On the one hand, I love the redesigned furniture and sink area, which make more efficient use of the space and increase the room's flexibility for families, in addition to being attractive.

    On the other hand, this room looks incredibly stale, bland, boring and colorless (dominated by large expanses of brown, white or gray) -- so much so that I think the refurb would make me less likely to stay at CS rather than more likely. The Three Caballeros art is terrific, but it doesn't do enough to make the room look like it belongs in Coronado Springs rather than in a hospital. The American Southwest is full of colorful tile, colorful fabric, colorful art and colorful buildings -- why couldn't the designers have kept some of that (albeit in a tasteful way)? I thought that the previous iteration of the rooms (which was, itself, a GIANT improvement over the 80's-style bedding and dark woods that dominated the décor when I stayed there in 2005) struck a nice balance of color, texture and grown-up modernity. This new décor only captures the latter, and is sterile almost to the point of looking like it belongs at the Contemporary (or in the storage warehouse of your local IKEA) instead of Coronado Springs. You could find a hotel room just like this (sans the pictures on the wall) ANYWHERE.

    Naturally, this is just my subjective opinion, and I'm sure that many will love it. I just find it jarringly bland (how's that for an oxymoron)?

    Still no bed runners in the new rooms this past weekend. The space under the beds to store suitcases is great, tons of bathroom storage and the long desk/drawers/coffee built-in makes for an excellent drop zone.

    They did the same thing when the rooms were renovation 7 years ago. They didn't put out the runners until almost all the rooms were complete. Not sure why.
