Disney Resort Spotlight: Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is a moderate resort at Walt Disney World with a southwestern-style theme featuring Mayan artistic influences and architecture inspired by Spanish colonial Mexico. The resort is located in the Disney’s Animal Kingdom resort area of Walt Disney World, to the east of Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The resort has a variety of artistic influences from the southwestern, turquoise-accented touches in their guest rooms to the Spanish colonial architecture of the buildings to the Mayan pyramid overlooking the main pool. The main Dig Site area contains the main Lost City of Cibola pool, surrounded by Mayan ruins and featuring a water slide and the largest hot tub on Walt Disney World property. There are also smaller leisure pools located in each of the resort’s areas.

The resort is divided into three areas: Ranchos, Cabanas, and Casitas. Cabanas and Casitas are the closest to the resort’s check-in and dining area El Centro, and Cabanas is closest to the Lost City of Cibola pool. Casitas is located closest to the resort’s convention center, and Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort hosts a variety of business conventions throughout the year.

Most rooms at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort can sleep 4 guests with 2 queen beds. Rooms with king beds are also available, and guests can select Preferred rooms that are located closer to El Centro for an additional cost. The resort also offers a selection of suites, which are primarily located in the Casitas area of the resort.

Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort has a number of dining options. For a quick, casual meal, the Pepper Market  food court offers a variety of options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For a casual table-service meal, Las Ventanas serves an American breakfast and casual American classics for lunch and dinner. If you want to get into the theme of the resort, you can try dinner at Maya Grill with a variety of traditional Mexican dishes.

Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort offers bus transportation to Walt Disney World’s four theme parks and Disney Springs. The resort is rather spread out, and so has multiple bus stops – one at each of the resort’s three areas, as well as a stop at El Centro.

Please note that Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is undergoing refurbishments, mainly in the Cabanas area of the resort. Work is limited until after 9AM daily, and all of the dining, pools, and other amenities remain available.
