Enjoy the Beauty of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort


Welcome to Coronado Springs Resort!
Bienvenidos!!!!  Welcome to Coronado Springs!!!    

Although this is a Moderate resort, there are many highlights at this resort that separate it from the others in this category. Coronado Springs is a beautiful resort. The attention to detail shines through in the wonderful landscaping and perfectly themed villages. With a fun pool, great dining options, and amenities to fill your business needs, this is a perfect choice for families, couples, and business travelers.          

Queen Beds with simple and elegant bedding
The rooms at Coronado Springs are just a touch more upscale than the usual rooms you might find at a moderate.  This was the first moderate to upgrade to two Queen sized beds from double beds; they are fitted with a very simple white duvet cover, and a turquoise and gray bed runner. King Bed rooms are also available to book as a separate room category.  All of the Moderates have a privacy curtain by the vanity area outside of the bathroom; however, at this resort, the curtain is replaced by two full length wood doors that slide side to side on the archway leading to the vanity area.







Sliding wood doors provide privacy in the vanity area

The table and chairs normally found in a Moderate room are replaced with a work desk, complete with convenient outlets on top for all of your electronic equipment.  Two small leather ottomans are provided for additional seating.  Business guests wanting additional amenities have the option to book a “business class room”, which has access to the Coconino Cove lounge. Here they will find a continental breakfast, snacks and beverages throughout the day including a coffee maker that does espresso and lattes!! Wine beer and sangria are also served here. Bath robes are provided in the business class rooms for use at the pool or in the room.  These rooms are usually reserved for business clients, but when there is availability, they are offered to us regular vacationers!





Fountain in El Centro, the main building
Dining options: I think Coronado Springs goes a step above in providing different dining choices to suit a variety of palates and clientele.  There is Café Rix for a quick grab-and- go, offering everything from salads, wraps, snacks, baked goods and gelato to a grill area where your food is prepared to order.  The Pepper Market is a great food court type of option, and does have some unique selections for breakfast and dinner to accommodate a more adventurous palate.  The Maya Grill serves dinner in the Mexican themed restaurant located in the Main Building.  The food here is wonderful, as is the warm and personable service.  I personally recommend the fajitas along with a glass of sangria.  According to the menu it is Grandma’s recipe and it is fabulous!

Fountains in the Casitas
Coronado Springs is also home to a convention center, but don’t let that put you off staying here.  It is anything but stuffy or uptight.  There is a full lounge bar area in between the Pepper Market and Café Rix, called Rix’s Lounge.  The lighting here is pretty low, and the bar area and decorations are meant to encourage conversation in small groups.  It is a great place for a nightcap after a day of fun in the sun.  There are also two more bars- one right outside along the Lago Dorado promenade, and the other by the main pool area. Because of the convention center, a business center is available for guests, providing certain business services such as faxing, computer use, shipping, etc. 


The Dig Site
The main pool at Coronado Springs is magnificent.  The centerpiece of this area, called the Dig Site, is a huge Mayan pyramid that has water flowing down the steps and into the main pool area.  There is the Jaguar slide on the side of the pool as well as a smaller water play area for the little ones.  There is also a playground, a video game arcade, a volley ball court and of course, my personal favorite, a 22 person hot tub overlooking the pyramid.  This is a great way to ease those sore muscles from walking in the parks and relax for a bit.  In addition to the main pool are there are three other quiet pools in the villages around the resort.


Casitas Courtyard at night
The resort is broken up into three village areas: Cabanas, Ranchos and Casitas.  Each one has its own special appeal.  The Ranchos section does tend to be the quietest, as it is furthest from the main building. Casitas are closer to the main building but can be far from the main pool area.  Cabanas tend to be in between the two. The interior amenities of the room are the same in all three areas, except for the business class rooms.   I tend to request Casitas or Cabanas for my room area.  The four bus stops are located around the resort and are not a terribly far walk from any village grouping.  


The resort, by design, is a bit warmer. While the landscaping is lush and full of many beautiful flowers, there are not many trees or shaded areas located around the resort.  This is to evoke the feeling of the Southwestern United States and Mexico.  The various fountains, hammocks and beach areas around the resort are lovely and fit the theme of the resort perfectly!!  


So the next time your travels bring you to Disney, you might want to stay with this magnificent resort, and enjoy the sun sinking below the horizon as the lighting of the resort shines into the beautiful night sky.  Swim in the Dig Site pool area at night under the stars, grab a drink, and take a walk around Lago Dorado as it reflects the lights of the resort in its waters.  Special memories are made here!!!

  1. It looks lovely, but I'd like to see the rest of the room - the desk area + the bathroom area with the doors open.

Top 10 Must Do's at Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris, formerly known as Euro Disney, opened on April 12, 1992. When traveling to different Disney parks, it's hard not to compare it to Disneyland in California or Walt Disney World in Florida. Each park is unique in it's own way. With so many wonderful attractions, it was a little difficult to come up with a Top 10 list. I would have picked "it's a small world", but that was closed when we were visiting. Here are my Top 10 things to do at Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris: 10. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril, or Indiana Jones et le Temple du Peril in French, is a roller coaster attraction that travels up to 59 feet. It does go through an inversion and travels up to the speed of 36 mph. The attraction is on the shorter side but it was fun to experience this unique attraction. 9. Alice’s Curious Labyrinth Alice's Curious Labyrinth is a maze attraction in Fantasyland. The goal is to reach the castle of

Chronos Club Review at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

I recently stayed at the Chronos Club at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort. I've been a fan of Disney's Coronado Springs Resort since my first visit as it reminds me of my hometown, San Antonio. I've stayed in rooms ranging from preferred, Casita Suite, Tower King, and now Club Level access. The Chronos Club is located on the 15th floor of the Gran Destino Tower and can only be accessed with a key card or MagicBand to a corresponding Club Level reservation. I've previously stayed Club Level at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Disney's Grand Floridian Resort, Disney's BoardWalk Inn, and Disney's Grand Californian Resort. These are all considered Deluxe Resorts. Something that makes the Chronos Club stand out is that it is located in what Disney considers a Moderate Resort. I was really excited to check out the difference in experience, since there can be a notable difference in price tag for Moderate vs. Deluxe Res

Carthay Circle Review

The Kingdom Konsultant team had the pleasure of being invited to the Disneyland Resort for agent training recently, and the first night the whole group was there, we went to Carthay Circle for dinner. The restaurant is a model of the famed Carthay Circle Theater, where Snow White debuted in 1937. The restaurant is elegant and beautiful, but not pretentious. They are used to people in theme park attire. We had trouble securing a reservation for 18, but we were able to get 3 smaller reservations and the restaurant was accommodating to seat us at tables next to each other. We had beautiful tables on the balcony overlooking Disney California Adventure and a dazzling sunset.  Some of us ordered entrees, some ordered appetizers but mostly we ordered a lot of things to share! Every table tried the Warm Cheddar Parker House Rolls, which were served with Calabrian Chili-Pine Nut Romesco Butter. These were delicious , and the butter was the real star.  Warm Cheddar Parker House Rolls & Calab
