Enjoy a blend of Spanish, Mexican and Southwest American influences at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. This moderate resort is one of our favorite Disney World Resorts for a number of reasons.
Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
Situated along a beautiful lake, this resort has everything you would want from a Disney Resort… nice pool & play area, wonderful onsite Mexican themed restaurant and a full service spa.
It is also one of the only conference centers on Disney property.
Coronado Springs Rooms
Bedrooms are decorated with subtle Southwest touches and roomy enough for a family of four.
Bathroom can be sectioned off by the barn doors so that those getting ready in the morning (or at night) have a bit more privacy.
Coronado Springs Resort Pool
I have to say that the pool at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is one of my favorites.
You really feel like you are taken away to a tropical paradise with plenty of trees and a large replica of a Mayan Pyramid with cascading waterfall as the backdrop.
The pool is quite large and laid out in such a way that you don’t feel like you are on top of each other when it does get crowded.
There is also a fun slide the entire family can enjoy. Seriously, this slide is one of my kids favorite of all the Disney resorts!
Coronado Springs Explorers Playground
The playground and campfire site all just a few feet away from the pool.
It is easy for your kids to enjoy everything at once rather than have to plan separate trip to enjoy each of these places.
The Explorers playground sticks with the Mexican theme throughout. Among the Mayan ruins, you will find a jungle gym, slide and much more.
Caribbean Beach Restaurants
Toledo: Tapas, Steak & Seafood: Rooftop restaurant featuring Steak, Fish & Ribs.
Three Bridges Bar & Grill: Bar Food with huge Coctail List
El Mercado de Coronado: Sandwiches, Burgers, Pizza and Rice Bowls
Rix Sports Bar & Grill: Bar Food & Beer
Maya Grill: Traditional Mexican favorites
Reviews are mixed of Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort because of the fact that it does have a convention center and some guests are off-put by the idea of a family resort being overrun with business people.
We have stayed there twice and never had one issue with the corporate guests. If anything, we found that the pool was less crowded because the business folks were in meetings during the day!
