Disney's Coronado Springs Resort
Ranked #177 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Reviewed 1 April 2014

The Coronado Springs resort is classified by Disney as one of their 'moderate' resorts, as in a step up from their budget 'All-Star' resorts, offering a reasonable price for pleasant accommodations. The facility is quite large and spread out, which means it was never truly crowded or uncomfortable during our stay, but additional planning had to be made regarding travel times by walking or bus. If you take the Disney's Magical Express Motorcoaches to and from Orlando airport, the drive is reasonable, and there are no other stops between the airport and the resort, although you will have All-Stars resort guests joining you on the ride. Location of the bus stops should also be noted, if you are taking the bus service to the parks or other resorts; Stop 2 is probably the best, as you are the first to get off when returning to the resort, and you can easily walk to Stop 1 for pickup to go to the parks or elsewhere, without spending additional time on the buses. The pools are all clean and well maintained, with plenty of chairs and towels. The grounds are well maintained as well, which allowed for many pleasant walks around the facility. Staff was pleasant and helpful throughout the stay. The hotel gift shop was one of the more extensive ones compared to other resort gift shops that we encountered, and was helpful to get items we missed during our days in the park. I went on my most recent trip as a couple, but I can definitely see this resort as a great place to bring a large family or group, as the flexibility of the resort allows for parts of groups to all find something they enjoy; plenty of parking allows for easy car transportation if you choose to forego the Disney buses (which has its advantages and disadvantages). The price is also non-prohibitive with larger groups. Unfortunately I cannot speak for the dining in the resort, as we were either eating in the parks or in some of the other resorts' restaurants to experience different parts of Disney.

We have tried many of the WDW resorts and this is a good mid-price with big resort feel. The rooms were comfortable but water view means step out on the walk way and look for the water. Check in was a bit too long but the new fast bracelets are great. The food court was just that - a food court of basic offerings. Taking the bus - remember your station. If you get off at the wrong stop - it will be a very long hike. Room service was about an hour. The grandkids liked it but preferred Saratoga springs and of course Grand Floridian. However, if going to the parks all day - this works well. All in all - it was very good.

Room Tip: Go for basic room and save money for the parks.

We stayed here for our 5 year anniversary and had a wonderful stay! We have stayed at a variety of Disney properties and have now found our favorite. We stayed in the business class section and it was definitely worth the upgrade. We had a fantastic breakfast in the morning and snacks, beer, wine and sangria in the evening, the servers in the lounge were fantastic! Our room was spacious, nicely decorated and very comfortable. There was plenty of room in the bathroom, I loved the shampoo, conditioner and shower gel that were provided. The pool and hot tub were gigantic! The waterside was a lot of fun, way better than any of the other resorts we have stayed at, we only wished the pool was open later. The best part of our stay was the bus transportation, Coronado Springs is the most centrally located hotel in Disney! We never had to wait more than a few minutes for a bus (at both the resort and the parks) and the travel time to the parks was really quick, even to Downtown Disney. I still want to stay at every Disney property, but of all the ones I've stayed at so far, Coronado Springs was my favorite!

This place was awesome. The rooms were excellent and the pool and gym were very impressive. We cant wait to go back. The free shuttle to all the parks and everything was really really nice. We used it all the time. Make sure you get magic bands for the rooms :)

This is Disney so you pay a premium. The room is outdated and felt dirty. The bathroom wasn't clean, with a dirty floor and the walls seemed yellowish. Our beds appeared quickly thrown together, and we couldn't adjust the temperature so we had to pull the blankets from one bed onto the other. Received a wake-up call we did not request. The outside walkways were wet and very slippery. It took well over an hour to check-in and the staff was generally unfriendly. Disappointing for Disney.

Very clean, nicely themed hotel. We frequently stay here. Ample bus stops, nice outdoor bar, numerous pools, and the Pepper Market is a nice QS dining experience. This hotel is def. an upgrade to a Value Resort.

We stayed at this resort with our three kids on our second Disney vacation in six month's and we're very happy with our choice. I loved the views, the lovely walk to our room, and how clean it was. The kids loved the pools and playground. At the time we stayed, there were two weddings going on, and two conventions yet we had no idea- the hotel felt empty!! I was worried from other reviews about it being crowded, but it was not. Our room was clean, and every day the maid service came by. I should mention that the service is from 8:30a.m. to 4:30p.m., but should you need something after hours the staff is very helpful. The kids loved running up and down the out door walkways. Something they can not do at other indoor resorts, and they do offer rides by golf carts if you need assistance to your room or to the lobby.

Overall the resort was clean, accommodating, and the staff very friendly. The restaurants were good and clean. Yes, it is a large resort that host conventions, but like any trip if you book during peek time you will not likely get what you want. We did not mind the walk to and from the main building, it was so refreshing to be able to continue enjoying the lovely weather all the way to the room. There are four bus stops, one for each building. Bus stop #2 is the first stop on the way back from the parks, and downtown Disney. This stop is located at the Casitas building.

I would say the only fault with the resort is that there are no microwaves in the rooms. Since it is a ways back to your room from the main building, it would be much easier to have this appliance in the room to heat up food or milk. I have a one year old who prefers warm milk and I had to heat it up by wrapping the bottle in a hot towel. Although, the staff members offered to pick up the bottle from our room and heat it up, we kindly declined. I would suggest this hotel to others who love the outdoors, and don't mind a little exercise during their vacation. I will definitely come back!

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper level are quieter since there is less foot traffic than the first floor rooms.
