If you are considering staying at Disney’s Coronado Spring Resort or if you are already booked at this resort, here are a few tips for Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort to help with your stay.

Disney’s Coronado Springs is my favorite moderate level resort at Walt Disney World.  I think the grounds are beautiful with Lago Dorado reflecting the surroundings in the day and sparkling so beautifully at night.

Take advantage of Coronado Springs Split Personality

Disney’s Coronado Springs has traditional Disney Moderate Resort rooms in the Ranchos, Cabanas, and Casitas sections of the resort.  The prices for these rooms are in line with other moderate resorts on Walt Disney World Property.

These rooms have been updated and are both modern, efficient, but a little Disney too.

Disney’s Coronado Springs also has new upgraded rooms in the new Grand Destino Tower.  The tower rooms have interior corridors and are in the 13 story tower at the entrance to the resort.  These rooms provide a more deluxe level hotel feel for a slightly higher price than the moderates but less expensive than the deluxe hotels.  This is the only moderate resort to offer a concierge lounge as well.

Tip: Invest a little more in your vacation for an upgraded feel.

Cool off on a Hot Day

Spread throughout the resort are three quiet pools and one main pool.

The main pool is on the dig site of an ancient Mayan Pyramid.  The Dig Site is located in the center of the resort and features the pool, child play area, water slide, and a 20 person hot tub.

Stay Healthy

Disney’s Coronado Springs has two fitness centers.  La Vida Health Club is located in the Casitas section of the resort near the quiet pool and the newest fitness Center is Grand Destino Tower Fitness Center located on the second floor of the tower.  The fitness Centers are open 24 hours and are available free to all resort guests.

An onsite Salon and Spa is also available at La Vida Health Club where you can book salon and spa treatments for men, women and children.

If a morning run is more your speed, there is a 0.9-mile jogging path around Lago Dorado.    The path is shown on this map or you can check at the resort when you arrive.  On Sunday Runday, you can enroll on a run around the resort when it’s offered.  There is a registration fee and participants receive a collector’s pin and a muffin when they complete the run.
