I lately experienced the privilege to invest a night at Disney’s Coronado Springs Vacation resort. My only regret is that I did not strategy a day to explore the lodge! 

For some history information, the resort is comparatively new. It is viewed as a moderate lodge with an typical value of $240 a night time (according to Disney’s web-site). It is themed like an extravagant Spanish getaway with spacious rooms and an remarkable pool. 

Listed here are some of my leading takeaways from this lodge:

The Sense vs. The Price

This was large for me. When I walked into the lodge lobby, I considered I experienced gone to the incorrect lodge. Surely this was much too good for what I paid out? But no! The Coronado Springs Vacation resort is intended to truly feel fancier than a average vacation resort. As an included reward, the main lobby wherever you examine in is located in Gran Destino Tower, which is the spot of the resort’s extra lavish rooms. 

I was rapidly checked into my space for the night time. I stayed in a regular place, which consisted of two queen beds and a independent lavatory. It was much more than enough room for my pal and me for the evening. We were even greeted with this enjoyable information on the tv:

A lovable way to be greeted at evening!

I personally observed this quite fascinating at the end of the night, and I am guaranteed several youngsters would be thrilled to see their very last title on the Tv. This designed the area feel much more luxurious than I envisioned!


As much as Disney resorts go, this one is not extremely Disney-fied like the Artwork of Animation or the Pop Century Vacation resort. Nevertheless, there are good tiny touches that give tribute to the A few Caballeros, who star in the water ride in the Mexico pavilion in Epcot. The Spanish influences, even though, are all over the hotel, and it definitely is a gorgeous home. Anything from the tunes to the crops helps make you really feel like you are in Spain. 

The landscaping really can make you feel like you are in a Spanish state!

Going for walks Distance

This is a con to the vacation resort, while it may just be my feeling. I located the wander from the conventional rooms to the dining places to be a tiny lengthy. It took my group about 10 minutes to wander more than to breakfast simply because of the massive lake in the heart of the resort. It was breathtaking, and I did not actually brain the stroll, but it was recognizable. Family members with tiny little ones or persons who do not appreciate a lot of strolling really should choose notice of this and maybe travel over to breakfast. It is also somewhat much from all the parks. Hollywood Studios is about a 15-minute travel from the vacation resort.

So, the significant question… 

Would I continue to be listed here all over again?


Like I mentioned at the starting, my largest regret is that I did not system a working day to shell out solely at the hotel. It was in the beginning of January, so it was a tiny chilly to use the pool (at least, as well chilly for me!), but it appeared outstanding as well. There is a Mayan temple with a waterslide…it seems so enjoyment! And I felt like I was in one particular of the deluxe motels for half the cost! So sure, I am eagerly anticipating the working day when I can return to Disney’s Coronado Springs Vacation resort.
