Walt Disney World’s Coronado Springs Resort is the newest Moderate and is the only one in this category which has convention facilities.
Due to this the clientele tends to be weighted more towards the adult side of the age spectrum and the atmosphere a little more laid back.
Club Level rooms with a club lounge and other upgrades are offered at the Coronado.
The theme at the Coronado is Southwestern, with four different themed groups of buildings. The new San Destino Tower, Casitas is modeled after a Southwestern urban area, Rancheros, which are themed on Southwest cattle ranches, and Cabanas, which represent Mexican coastal villages.
In 2019 a new 15-story tower adjacent to the resort’s old main building was added. This became the new main building and added 500 rooms, including suites and concierge-level services.
The new tower features rooftop dining with panoramic views of nighttime fireworks from Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Main Pool with Water Slide and Hot Tub – Worship the sun at an awesome aquatic area built around a 50-foot replica of a Mayan pyramid. Watch water stream down the steps of the massive stone structure into the Lost City of Cibola pool or plunge headlong into it on the spitting Jaguar Slide.

An Animal Kingdom Area Resort
Bus transportation is available to all Disney World guest areas. There are 4 bus stops located at the tower and at each area.
Overnight Parking is $20.00 per night at the Disney World Moderates. Note this charge is initiated for all nights of your stay either by telling the front desk that you have a vehicle when checking in or by using your room key/Magic Band to enter the parking lot. If you will not be parking every night (say you have a rental car for just a dat or so) coordinate this with the front desk.
The Coronado is located closer to the Animal Kingdom than most Disney resorts and also is the very first resort you will come to if you are driving in the rear Disney World entrance from SR-429 via Western Way.
The Coronado is a very diverse resort, with very unique, spread out lodging areas. There is the new Destino Tower with new dining and lounge options, the 3 story Casitas area with a large portion of it near the convention center and all the original dining and lounges, and then the 2 story Ranchos and Cabanas.Related Posts:
