Coronado Springs Resort Overview

Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

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 regards it feels more like a deluxe resort, just with a moderate resort price tag. The theme here is a blend of colonial Mexico and the American Southwest. Upon entering 'El Centro' - the resorts main building, you'll see the La Fuente de Las Palomas or the "Fountain of the Doves" as the spring water trickles over the Spanish-style urn and gathers amidst the colorful tiles. El Centro is also home to the resorts Check-in desk and Guest Services as well as Panchitos Gift Shop, Cafe Rix, Rix Sports Bar & Grill, the Peppermarket Food Court and the resorts full service restaurant the Maya Grill.

The 1921 guest rooms and suites are dispersed amongst three villages that surround a 15-acre man-made lake. The resort features rustic stucco buildings, Mexican-style bungalows, and festive villages with Spanish terracotta roofs. The Coronado Springs Resort is divided into 3 village areas, the Casitas, the Ranchos, and the Cabanas. The Casitas village or "Little Houses", has 1024 guest rooms (981 guest rooms and 43 suites) and includes buildings similar to those commonly found in Sante Fe or Monterey.

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-storey villas. The Cabanas are 2-storey Mexican-style adobe bungalows with 319 guest rooms. The majority of these rooms have a water view. The convention center is 95,000 square feet and can be divided into 45 rooms. The Coronado Ballroom is 60,214 square feet with a 23-foot high ceiling and this can seat 5000 for dinner or 6500 for theater-style meetings. This ballroom can be divided up into 18 separate rooms. The Fiesta Ballroom is 21160 square feet and can divided into 10 rooms. The grounds of the 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.

Gran Destino Tower

Notice – Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort will be undergoing many refurbishment projects beginning in 2017 and going through 2019.

A 15-story tower being constructed and will become the new main entrance for guests visiting the resort. This new addition will bring 545 new guest rooms (including 50 suites) to the resort, as well as a grand two-story lobby. The Gran Destino Tower is set to open in July of 2019.

The upcoming Three Bridges Bar and Grill will be located on an island in the middle of Coronado Springs' 14-acre lake, Lago Dorado. The restaurant will be accessible via walkways that stretch across the lake.

A new themed table-service restaurant, Toledo - Tapas, Steak & Seafood, is also in the works for the rooftop of Gran Destino Tower, which will provide incredible views of the Walt Disney World Resort. Advanced Dining Reservations are now open for dates beginning July 9, 2019.
