I must admit I keep choosing port orleans over Coronado but walks around the coronado lake were wonderful and I did enjoy my time there. Will have to go back

I definitely enjoyed my trip there.

I would ask for a room close to the food area. Definitely eat at the food court, excellent food!

We've never even visited Coronado Springs, but that video has put it on our must do list.

If they are still there, check out the hammocks on the beach. A delightful place to spend a quiet half-hour. :yes:

Hidden Secrets
Hit Rix Lounge (Entertainment after 9:00) for some “adult time” (Try the tapas style appetizers. YUM). It was voted Most Trendy Bar in Orlando 2009.

Hit Cafe Rix for some amazing gelato.

For more “adult time” the Maya Grill is a great place to dine.

Siestas margaritas are very good. If they offer you an extra shot of 151 ~ consider yourself warned.

Try one of the many hammocks, very relaxing!!

Get a massage at the fitness center. Check on-line for coupons. It is run by Nikki Bryan (as are the other Spas at WDW).

Have a drink at the Laguna Bar. It's a great place to sit by the lake. You can see the high fireworks from Illuminations and Wishes at night.

Real Coffee at the Cafe Rix, Pepper Market and Maya Grill

Young or old, you have to give the water slide a try.

Photo Opportunities

A photo of mom or dad checking in

Someone refilling a mug

Trading Pins with a CM

Your room before everyone moves their stuff in

Making a pressed penny

In front of your resort/hotel upon arrival and in front of your room. (If you do a lot of scrapbooking, some of the little things like this are neat to document. Signs are great for scrapping!)

Take a photo of you/your group at your resort. They really reflect an important part of your vacation.

Take pictures of your children asleep. They're always funny.

At the main pool there are some great photo ops: By the tiki post, by the pyramid, and by the big head.

With the Burrito inside the resort store.

With The Three Caballeros topiary in the back of the main building.

By the Fountain of Doves in the main lobby.

Keep an eye out for the alligators and other wildlife at CSR.
