Disney's Coronado Springs Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
A great resort with great features including at least 3 pools with the "Dig site" being the main pool area with a water slide, and a cabana for great mixed drinks, and a snack bar. A walking trail winds around the whole resort, and they have free Disney bus stops to Epcot, Magic Kingdom, etc. Rooms are old, out-dated and in urgent need of renovation.
Booked Coronado Springs a few months ago for a father/son trip to Disney. I wanted the least expensive Disney property with full knowledge from past experience and reading reviews, that at best, I would end up with a "Motel 6" experience for $175 a night. WHAT A SHOCK at check-in when the smiling Disney team member informed us that we were staying in the newly renovated unit in the Ranchos Section. And it really was newly renovated, as there were Wet Paint signs around the outside of the unit.What a difference! The entire unit was remodeled, 2 new queen size beds with a quality mattress, a beautiful and really functional bathroom/shower, with 2 sinks, lots of storage, a lighted makeup mirror, a stall shower with a rain and hand shower heads and a quick flush toilet. In addition, there was a 50" TV and a coffee maker. The only things missing were a mini refrigerator and some water bottles. Maybe best of all, no old moldy carpeting. but brand new faux hardwood floors and tile in the bathroom. I finally feel I got my money's worth after all of the crummy Disney units I have stayed in, just to get the Disney park perks.So, good luck and ask nicely or demand if you have to, for the renovated units.
Had a wonderful stay. Disney never disappoints me. Check in was a breeze. Room was ready when we arrived. Room was spacious. We were on the first floor, corner room facing the water. Quick serve dining had a good selection of options.
Yes, the resort is big and mainly targets business conventions. Doesn't change the fact that it has gorgeous grounds, the theming is done really well, and the rooms are super comfy (comparable to Disney standards)
Stayed for 3 night in May 2017 - anniversary trip so sans kids ;)This resort is my least favorite of all that I've stayed in at WDW. The construction going on detracts quite a bit - and you see it from the moment you pull in. I didn't think it would bother me, but it did. The fencing is hideous and behind it are a bunch of dirt pits. I didn't see this mess from my room but saw it several times a day as we were leaving and returning. Takes away from the relaxing vacation feel.Room: We stayed in Casitas Building 2 (2nd floor) and it was a convenient location. The elevators were so far from our room we just took the stairs everyday. Just a 5-7 min lovely walk along the water to the main building (El Centro) and a 3 min walk to Bus Stop #2. We paid for a "preferred room" and our view was a parking lot. Not sure how that's a preferred view, but I didn't want to waste any precious vacation time fighting that with the front desk. Linens were nice, king-sized bed was very comfortable. I thought the room was clean and housekeeping was very generous with the toiletries :) I loved that the room had a fan over the bed. It was over 90 degrees every day and that was such a nice little feature to cool off. We heard some noise from neighbors beside and above us, but for the most part, I thought this was a pretty quiet area. Grounds: With the exception of the construction at the entrances, the grounds were very pretty. Not as lovely as Caribbean Beach, but there were fountains and courtyards and landscaping. There is also a nice gym nearby. We didn't use the pools and were a little disappointed there wasn't a hot tub at the closest "quiet" pool. We also didn't see many kids (probably because this is also a convention center). We did see fireworks one night about 9:15 after coming back from the parks. It must have been from AK but it was a nice surprise!Overall: In general, we were underwhelmed. The customer service at this hotel was just not on par. I tried to be extra friendly to any staff we came in contact with, and it didn't make a difference. It was just not up to Disney standards. If we asked questions, they acted like we were bothering them. I don't know if they've had a lot of turn over in staff, but most didn't seem very knowledgeable about the resort or like they knew what they were doing. Transportation left much to be desired. The bus drivers didn't seem super familiar with the resort. We had long waits and long trips to and from the park. One night we had reservations at the Contemporary (California Grill) and we waited and waited for a bus to the Magic Kingdom so we could hop on the monorail from there. Should have been easy peasy but there were no updates on the bus schedule as to when the next MK bus was coming so we ended up having to catch a bus to Epcot, taking the monorail, transferring monorails at the transportation center, to get there. Doesn't seem like a lot - but it was super stressful and we had to go through security at epcot just to get on the monorail which took extra time. Give yourself 2 hrs if you are eating at another resort or simply call an Uber and get there in 15 minutes. Lesson learned.
