It's right next to El Centro, sits on the lakeside between there and the Cabanas area

Haha yes his videos are great as he shows you loads. He seems very friendly and the staff seem to like him but yes they are long and he doesnt seem to have the same banter/dynamic of the Trackers. Prince Charming Dev has also done a fairly recent tour of Coronado thats good x

But this is great I would definitely stay here now based on this review. Which area is best to request? Well be going end of June next year, was gonna go with POR or CBR but theyre more expensive.
We Quite like the Rancho's area (stayed there for our last two visits) as it is very quiet as furthest from El centro (only ten minute walk) and don't venture over there that often.
Only Two story buildings , currently 2nd stop on the bus loop so generally get a seat.

We have stayed in Casitas (first stop for bus's) and where on the top floor and used to have a great view of the fireworks at night (not sure if the new tower is in the way now) we enjoyed it but found the quiet pool very busy as convention guests used to be put in Casitas .

Guess this will change with the new tower building and as others have said will have an overall impact on how busy the resort is and there may changes to buses etc .

We love it there and should of been staying there again this year but had to change our dates due to our flights and unfortunately Disney didn't have availability so had to change resorts.

Out of the resorts I've stayed at in August it has always been the quietest. Love it
