Each of the Disney resorts has a different theme. Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is inspired by the beauty of Mexico and the American Southwest and features a five-story Mayan temple, Spanish-style haciendas and palm-shaded courtyards.
Although it has the largest convention center on Disney property, this resort is perfect for an extended family holiday. It is among the least expensive of Disney’s resort properties, yet still a 4 star hotel!
The resort has 1,915 rooms including 46 suites, one large pool, three quiet pools, a formal dinner restaurant, a cafeteria-style restaurant, fitness center, an arcade, a dance club and a gift shop from where you can buy unique souvenirs. The pool area, inspired by the Mayan ruins of Mexico, features a spectacular Mayan temple with a twisting water slide and cascading water!
Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort has three main areas, each defined by a different theme. The Casitas (buildings 1, 2, and 3) offer the best views of architecture and fountains. The Ranchos are inspired by the Mexican countryside, while The Cabanas bring the Mexican coastline to life. Four stops around the resort make every room an easy walk to a stop. There are nicely lit walkways so you can feel comfortable walking around at night.
All rooms have high speed Internet access, Pack’n Play playard available upon request, two ceiling fans, DVD-VCR player, large office desk, television, unique views, voicemail and other amenities. Right outside the rooms, you can catch a free bus that would take you to the Disney parks.
The hotel boasts a great water slide for warmer weather, as well as a poolside bar for all. The main large pool area is excellent with a Mayan theme, snack and drink bar, large hot tub, bathrooms with changing facilities and a small arcade. The resort is decorated beyond imagination and the staff and food are great. Several fine Spanish/Mexican restaurants are on site.
Maya Grill is located in the resort’s main lobby complex. Café Rix is a quick-service restaurant where you can take breakfast, lunch or dinner. At Laguna Bar, you can order your favorite drinks while enjoying the view. Pepper Market features American Oriental, Italian, Mexican and delicatessen cuisine.
The Disney Dining plan is also a highlight, especially for those families with small children. As you see, Coronado Springs Resort manages to satisfy even the most demanding customers thanks to the wide range of dinning options available on-site.
There are many things to do one you arrive here. The Dig Site is the main pool area at Coronado Springs. Additional recreation includes boats, kayaks, water-cycles, fishing excursions, bike rentals, video and pinball games, shopping, and more.
You can even take a scenic 0.9-mile run, play volleyball on the beach and exercise. There were tons of golf carts driving around to give you a ride. Your kids will be delighted to found out that there is an archeologically-themed playground located at the Dig Site.
A bonus about staying within the resort is that you have free transportation to all the parks. Besides this, the grounds are beautiful, with plenty of walking paths. Families with kids and couples of all ages will enjoy staying at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort!
