Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is unique in that it is the only one of Disney's moderate category resorts to feature a convention center. For some, this fact - the fact that at any given point in time the resort could be overrun with conventioneers - is a turn-off. However, this is one of the most stunning and well-appointed resorts on Disney property. In fact, in some regard, it feels more like a deluxe resort, just with a moderate resort price tag.
The 2,385 guest rooms including suites in lakeside casitas, are dispersed amongst three villages as well as the new Gran Destino Tower that all surround Lago Dorado, a 22-acre man-made lake. The resort features rustic stucco buildings, Mexican-style bungalows, and festive villages with Spanish terracotta roofs.
Three lodging districts adjacent to Gran Destino Tower are inspired by the elegant cities, neighborhood dwellings and diverse natural landscapes of Mexico and the American Southwest:
El Centro is also home to the remodeled Panchito's Gifts and Sundries, which offers an array of trendy and art-inspired merchandise, Cafe Rix, Rix Sports Bar & Grill, the quick-service cafeteria-style restaurant, El Mercado de Coronado and the resort's full-service restaurant, the Maya Grill.
The buildings set amidst the colorful plaza, fountains, and courtyards are commonly used for the convention accommodations. The Ranchos have a more rustic, rural flavor to them, complete with an arroyo or small stream that tumbles over a rocky streambed. The 624 guest rooms are housed in two- and three-story villas. The Cabanas are 2-story Mexican-style adobe bungalows with 319 guest rooms. The majority of these rooms have a water view. The convention center has more than 220,000 square feet of dedicated meeting and event function space. Newer meeting venues include 24-seat boardroom and 2,859-square-foot Lantana room that divides into three smaller rooms; adjoining 1,674-square-foot pre-function space includes show kitchen. The grounds of Coronado Springs Resort are landscaped with trees from 10 different states, and environmentalists will be happy to note that the mulch in the landscaped beds consists of shredded wood from recycled pallets.
There are a total of 1,921 guest rooms in the original section of Coronado Springs that are divided into 6 categories:
*Sico beds are beds that pull down out of the wall. They are also known as Murphy beds.
Preferred Room locations: Preferred rooms are located Casitas 1, 2 and 3 which are close to the main building.
Gran Destino Tower has 16 floors with 545 guest rooms (includes 50 suites, highlighted by two presidential suites)
