    It is a beautiful resort! We stayed there for the first time 11/27-12/3 last year. I'm a runner and I enjoyed the running trail around the lake. Have you visited Buzz2k1's CSR fan site https://buzz2k1.wixsite.com/coronado/news-updates ? Lots of good info :)

    The refurb is for the rooms and the building exteriors (will be painted). The fence just went up this week around rancho 7a.

    No one is sure what will come of building 9b. Rumor is that it is to be taken down to make room for something new. But nothing definite is out yet concerning 9b. Business class as we knew it ended on 12/31/16

    No work to be done on the pools or dining

    @Buzz2001 nice pics! My wife and I will be staying at CSR for the first time ever this summer. Which building do you recommend we try to request to stay in a newly updated room? Also, do you have any advice for staying at this resort such as favorite restaurant etc? Thanks

    Buzz, why do none of the links on your site work? Or is it my computer? When it says click HERE it says invalid.

    It might be your computer. I just checked the home page and all of the Click Here links worked for me. The links do automatically open in a new tab, so perhaps you have a setting on which prevent sites from opening new tabs/windows?

    I have a stay at CSR coming up 3/31-4/2. Are Cabanas and near transportation good choices?

    Cabanas 8A and 8B are pretty good locations. Close to the pool and Bus stop and a brief walk to El Centro. Water Side rooms have great views of the pond/lake.

    We are planning a stay at CSR for our mid December 2017 WDW trip. What are the chances most of the room refurbishments will be completed by then? I was hoping to stay in the Cabanas.

    More speficically the resort has been undergoing different renovations for the past two years. Room renovations seemed to have been put off or delayed until this year.

    The rehab just started 1/8/2017. It was schedule to start about 18 months earlier but due to change in management and other issues it was delayed. But it is going in full force now. Rancho 7a will be done in a few weeks and next up is rancho 7b. Cabana 9b has been closed and rumor has it, 9b will be demolished, the pond behind it drained, all for a new project...possibly DVC

    Any hopes of Rancho 7a being complete by my check-in date of 3/8?

    I'm surprised they didn't start with casitas to please the conventioners that always leave TripAdvisor resort reviews about old furnishings. But I'm glad they didn't as hope to score a new room in ranchos or cabanas mid September. Hoping to be near the main pool, and im so glad they have a mug refill station and snack bar there as this saves the looong trek in a morning for hot chocolate, coffee and a Danish :cool:

    You can see the tub/stand up shower, two sinks and the ceiling fan (on the right side of the page) coming to the new rooms
