Disney's Coronado Springs Resort
Disney's Coronado Springs Resort
Coronado Springs is located near Disney’s Animal Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The resort offers moderately priced rooms and convention facilities. The resort surrounds a 15-acre lake known as Lago (Lake) Dorado.
AMBIENCE AT DISNEY'S CORONADO SPRINGS RESORT
The architecture and decor trace the travels of explorer Francisco de Coronado in colonial Mexico and the American Southwest. Adventure awaits around every corner, from the colorful, bustling market to the Mayan pyramid overlooking the main swimming pool. Your visit begins in a sunny plaza, which leads to the large, open lobby graced by beamed ceilings, elegant columns, and intricately inlaid floors. Around the corner, a festive market offers native foods, just the thing to eat on the lakeside terrace. The resort’s buildings are clustered around sparkling Lago Dorado, including the stately main building, El Centro.
RESORT LAYOUT AT DISNEY'S CORONADO SPRINGS RESORT
The renovated guest rooms in this 1,967-room resort are divided into three districts. Closest to El Centro are the Casitas, a bustling village of three- and four-story stucco buildings painted in soft pastels. Next around the lagoon are the rustic adobe-and-wood Ranchos. You could imagine Zorro dashing under the porch roofs and amid the cactus, while bubbling springs cascade into rock-strewn stream beds, ultimately to disappear into the parched desert earth. Finally, you reach the tropical Cabanas, vibrantly colored two-story buildings with the corrugated tin roofs of a rustic beach resort. Rooms are about 314 sq. ft. and offer two queen beds or one king bed, a separate vanity area with just one sink, table and chairs, armoire, and a TV. Amenities include toiletries, housekeeping, limited room service, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, coffeemaker, refrigerator, in-room safe, and voice mail. Newspaper delivery is available for $1.50/day. Concierge rooms and junior, one-bedroom, and executive suites are also available.
The large 190,000 sq. ft. Conference Center is quite modern and generally lacks the regional character of the resort. It boasts the largest ballroom in the Southeast (60,214 sq. ft.). An 85,000 sq. ft. exhibit hall, meeting rooms, another 20,000 sq. ft. ballroom, and patios round out the facilities. A full-service business center is also available.
