Disney is always renovating and refurbishing something on property. Some refurbs a quick and painless, but other renovations (like Polynesian Village Resort) last for years.
Disney recently announced that Coronado Springs will be getting a pretty big makeover. Not only will all the rooms get a refurbishment, but Disney plans to add a 15 story building that will hold 500 additional rooms (suites with concierge level services) and a restaurant with rooftop dining. The new building will overlook Lago Dorado (the lake) and guests will be able to see nighttime fireworks from the rooftop restaurant.
The landscape of the hotel will also be receiving a makeover. There will be floating gardens, an island, and a series of bridges connecting the resort. The idea of walking on the bridges and looking at the floating gardens sounds very relaxing.
With these addition it sounds like Coronado Springs is moving more towards the deluxe category of resort hotels. It is a nice hotel already, so I can only imagine how nice it will look after the renovations are complete.
In the same article, Disney announced that Caribbean Beach Resort will be reimagined. The renovations for this resort include additions to Centertown (the resort’s marketplace) like a new waterfront restaurant and new stores.
So if you are staying at either of these resorts any time soon just be aware you may see some construction going on during your vacation. Disney usually does a good job minimizing noise for guests, but these are some pretty big renovations. If you experience any problems with construction during your stay you can always mention to the cast member at the front desk.
Are you excited for these changes coming to Coronado Springs and Caribbean Beach?
