Coronado Springs Resort
On our most recent visit to Walt Disney World we stayed in the Spanish-colonial Mexico moderate resort Coronado Springs. This was a southwestern-themed resort with several styles of buildings and a wonderful pool area. The room was clean and comfortable.
The pool included a slide coming from a Mayan pyramid surrounded by gorgeous landingscaping. There was a pool for the smaller children and the largest hot tub found on Disney property. While walking from the room past the pool we came across a bridge that crossed the 22 acre lake on our way to the restaurant area. The grounds are serene and full of wonderful places to sit and take a moment.
The restaurant area had a range of options. We did not choose to eat at them during this trip but passed by and saw many enjoying the experiences that were being offered. The choices included: the Maya Grill that is a themed dining experience with Mexican cuisine, 3 quick-service stops: Cafe Rix, Pepper Market & Siestas Cantina, along with several lounges around the property. The choices were as unique as the decor in each of the areas.
There were five resort bus stops in total and two within a small walk from our room. The bus stops were neither crowded nor messy and the bus rides themselves were just as pleasant. Sometimes we wait for two buses before boarding and then the chances of standing are very good going both to and from the parks. It was a nice change to have plenty of seats on the bus.
