Celebrate the unique blend of Mexican, Spanish, and Southwest American cultures at the newly reimagined Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort. This beautiful lakeside oasis offers modern comfort, classic influences, Disney touches to energize and inspire as you delight in an array of new eateries, features, and enhancements.
This is one of my favorite Disney resorts. Although this is a Moderate resort, It is closer to a Deluxe in amenities offered but is fairly priced. Many families do not like it because it is a convention resort and there may be business folks around. I think this means less people at the pool, shorter lines for the busses. The Tower rooms are beautiful, and you are guaranteed to be close to the bus stop, dining options and pool.
Even if it is still a bit higher to stay onsite, the benefits can far outweigh the added cost. I have laid out those benefits for you to see how staying at a Disney resort is a good value for you in my blog “Benefits to Staying at a Disney Resort.”
