Disney's Coronado Springs Resort 

A lively, Spanish-inspired resort

The scale of this vibrant resort will strike you from the moment you step into the airy lobby that’s lit by Moorish lanterns – just one of many nods to Spanish styling through the hotel.

Although the looming Gran Destino tower take centre stage at Disney’s Coronado Springs, the resort spreads around a lake in low-lying motel-style buildings, divided into three areas. Each area has its own swimming pool, but you’ll likely find yourself heading for the Lost City of Cibola, the resort’s main waterpark for maximum thrills. You’re particularly close to Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World and while Magic Kingdom is furthest away, it’s only a 20-minute bus journey. When you return, there are plenty of places to eat, whether you want something quick from a counter-service restaurant or you’re ready to relax and enjoy some table service.

Why we love Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

  • You can watch the EPCOT fireworks in the distance from the patio of the rooftop Dahlia Lounge with an icy G&T.

  • As one of Disney’s Moderate Resorts, you’ll get to access the parks 30 minutes early. Perfect for getting first in the queue for a must-do attraction!

  • The pool scene is epic. A long waterslide and oversized whirlpool are built around a Mayan pyramid. There are also three quieter pools dotted around the resort.

  • There’s always plenty going on, from art workshops and pool games to marshmallow toasting and outdoor movie screenings.

Upgrade options

When you stay at a Walt Disney World resort, you have the option to choose between two dining plans: the Disney quick-Service Dining Plan and the Disney Dining Plan.

The Disney quick-Service Dining Plan includes two quick-service meals and one drink per meal per guest, as well as one snack and a refillable mug per person. You can redeem the credits at over one hundred quick-service and counter-service locations across Walt Disney World’s parks, resorts, and Disney Springs. The plan is loaded onto your Disney band or card, and you can use it at any pace during your stay. You can’t use your credits at Disney’s table-service restaurants.

The Disney Dining Plan preloads your Disney band or card with credits that you can use to pay for meals at over two hundred locations throughout the park, including table-service restaurants where you’ll often need a reservation. Every night of your stay, you'll receive credits for one quick-service meal, one table-service meal (a main course and dessert), one drink per meal, and one snack. Additionally, you'll get a refillable drink mug on arrival that you can use for free refills at your Disney resort hotel. The dining plan includes fine and signature dining, dinner shows, and character dining. However, keep in mind that two table-service meals will be deducted from your dining credits for these experiences.

Unusually for a Disney Moderate Resort, Disney's Coronado Springs has a fitness centre with cardio, strength, and functional equipment. If you prefer to work out outside, there’s a scenic jogging trail around the lake and a sand volleyball court.

Family of water babies? The Lost City of Cibola is a large swimming pool set around a Mayan pyramid. There’s a 123-foot-long waterslide and activities take place all day. For something quieter, there are three other swimming pools in the Casitas, Ranchos, and Cabanas areas of the resort. There’s also a Mayan themed playground for burning off excess energy!

In the evening, head to the pool for marshmallows around the campfire. There are also free outdoor movie screenings on most nights.
