I booked a free dining package at Pop Century, and now just received a quote from MVT for Coronado Springs, without dining. Our Pop Package includes 6 day park hopper plus Tickets. The CSR quote includes a 7 day base pass. I estimate that all in (accounting for meals out of pocket at CSR), CSR would be between $350 to $600 more, depending on if we upgrade to the same park hopper tickets as we would have at Pop. We’ll be spending most of our time in the parks, but will take mid day breaks to rest and cool off given that we’re going in August.
Thoughts on keeping Pop reservation or making the switch? Our kids are 7 and 9.
Bus transportation is important to us, and I’ve heard good things about the Pop buses. I’m a little concerned about the size of Coronado.
The waterslide at Coronado is a big plus for that resort. Also think it would have a more relaxed feel, which would be nice for mid day breaks.
Otherwise, I’d give an ever so slight advantage to Pop for the free dining, since it includes fancy drinks, etc. that we would not otherwise get out of pocket. But there’s also added hassle with the dining plan vs the flexibility of out of pocket.
And I probably would not pay extra for the park hopper if we did Coronado. While I don’t think we’ll hop much, there are 1 or 2 days it could be useful to return for nighttime events, for example. So I guess that points to sticking with Pop as well.
We stayed at the Poly our last trip. This time we’re trying to save money to make our vacation dollars go farther (with trips elsewhere planned throughout the year).
Would appreciate any thoughts!
