Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is themed as a Southwest hotel, encircling Laga Dorado - a glimmering 22-acre lace in the middle of the resort. The theme is reminiscent of a Spanish come Mexican colonial town.
The resort has a business center so is a popular choice for on-site meetings and conventions.
Rooms at the Coronado Springs resort are typically 314 square foot, with two queen sized beds. King sized beds are also available however these are usually reserved for handicapped guests as those rooms have a larger bathroom with a wheelchair friendly shower instead of a bath tub.
Standard in-room amenities include:
The resort features three heated 'quiet pools' located in the Casitas, Ranchos and Cabanas areas.
The main pool, The Dig Site is the resorts main pool area and is themed as a Mayan kingdom during an archaeological dig. The pool is fairly large and features a large 50-foot Mayan pyramid with water tricking down its steps into the pool.
Behind the pyramid is a 16.2 foot high water slide. Other amenities around the pool include a volleyball court, a poolside bar and an arcade. A children's pool is also located here.
Pool towels are offered at The Dig Site pool, but not at the three quiet pools, so guests must bring towels from their rooms.
The pools are all open from 8am - Midnight with a lifeguard present between 10am and 10pm.
Other on-site amenities include the La Vida Health Club, a jogging trail, a beach and Bass Fishing Excursions.
Disney busses stop at three locations in the resort:
The resort doesn't share its bus route with any other resorts, so if you board a bus heading for Magic Kingdom, it'll only be stopping along the Coronado Springs stops, then it'll go directly to the Magic Kingdom.
Busses operate from one hour prior to park opening hours and then for one hour after the parks close. Downtown Disney busses run until 2:00 AM.
There are three restaurants on-site:
- Pepper Market Food Court is a counter-service location with a number of 'stations' each with their own specialities. Foods are mainly mexican themed, however you still get the standard Disney fair. Menu items include tacos, burritos, tostados, burgers, pizza, rotisserie chicken, baked goods, salads, pastas, sandwiches, Asian stir-fry and a range of deserts. Breakfast is served from 7:00 AM - 11:00 AM.
- Rix Cafe is located in the Pepper Market Food Court and is effectively a Grab 'n Go station. It is located near the main entrance of the food court.
- Maya Grill is the resorts table-service restaurant, offering a selection of Central Mexican, Nuevo Latino and American Southwestern cuisine. Most menu items are (as the name would suggest) grilled over an open wood-burning fire. Items on the menu include sizzling beef, stuffed portobello mushrooms, salmon a la plancha, grilled chipotle chicken and pork chop milanesa. The restaurant is open for a breakfast buffet between 7:00 AM and 11:30 AM.
In-room dining is also offered with a limited menu. Items offered include a continental breakfast service from 6:00 AM - 10:00 AM. From 5:00 PM - 11:00 PM you can order pizzas, cold sandwiches and salads in addition to beverages.
You can also enjoy light snacks and a good selection of beverages and margaritas in El Centro, in Fancisco's Lounge from 5:00 PM - 1:00 AM.
