The Coronado Springs is a Disney moderate resort, which means it's a step up from the All Star and Pop Century, but a step below the ones surrounding the lake in front of the Magic Kingdom. It's worth the extra money compared to the budget resorts for the larger rooms and the far superior bus service.Bus service is fantastic. Four stops around the resort make every room an easy walk to a stop. You never have to wait more than ten minutes for the bus you want, and this resort does not share bus service with any other.The rooms are great. Spacious and clean, a family of four would have space to be comfortable. There is an ice machine and drink machine on every floor. There are three different areas of the resort, but the only difference in the rooms is the decor, which is tasteful and not distracting in every case.A neat perk to staying at a Disney resort is the way they do room keys. You get a personalized credit card upon arrival that works as a room key, park ticket, and credit card anywhere on property. Makes everything very simple and prevents having to care around a bajillion things your entire vacation.My only complaint about this resort is the distance of many of the rooms from the main building. As the main building is the only place to get breakfast, this can make for a long walk first thing in the morning. My advice is to look at a map of the resort and request a room in a building close to the main one. Disney is usually very accommodating to such requests.
