    Can I ask why Coronado is your favorite resort? I want to stay there or Caribbean, not sure.

    Hi Erica!

    Absolutely! I've stayed at both Coronado Springs Resort (CSR) and Caribbean Beach, so I can definitely help you with the decision.

    CSR is my favorite Walt Disney World resort. The reason I love it so much is because:

    1. Can you say hot tub? It was like a dream when I sank into the hot, bubbling hot tub after a long day walking around the parks. Coronado Springs has a 22-person hot tub, which is one of the largest throughout all of Walt Disney World!
    2. I'm a runner, and I was training for a marathon when we stayed at CSR. I was able to fit in my 17-mile training run on the jogging trail that surrounding Lago Dorado, the 22-acre lake.
    3. The La Vida Health Club was great!  It wonderful fitness facility, which many moderate resorts don't offer.
    4. The CSR Mayan Pyramid themed pool - My family visited the pool every single night and we loved the Jaguar Pool Slide and playing games poolside. There are also quiet pools in each section of the resort (Casitas, Ranchos and Cabanas.)
    5. The Pepper Market, especially the chicken and steak fajitas
    6. I love the clean white linen with crisp blue accents in the room. It felt like a luxury hotel. We also loved having two queen beds. We are both really tall, so it is really hard to sleep in a double.
    7. Beautiful Setting - You can't beat watching the sunrise over the shimmering lake while laying in the hammock. 

    Now I can't wait to go back after describing all of my fun moments at CSR! We also stayed at CBR just a few weeks ago, in one of the pirate rooms. My kids loved the pirate theme and the look on their faces when they opened the door was priceless! The pirate themed pool was also wonderful. The downside was that we had full sized beds and we didn't have as many amenities as CSR.

    Please let me know if I can help you with anything else at all!
