Two Disney Moderate Resorts Announce Expansive Renovations

Just announced from Disney Parks Blog, two Walt Disney World moderate resorts will be undergoing exciting renovations. Last October, we mentioned that Disney’s Coronado Springs was possibly expanding.

Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

During the next two years, Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort will expand and refurbish accommodations. With a new 15-story tower in the works, 500 more rooms including suites and concierge level amenities will be added to this sprawling resort. With prime real estate on the shore of the resort’s lake, Lago Dorado, rooftop dining will be offered featuring amazing views of Disney fireworks. Of course, I’m wondering if this will push Coronado Springs into the deluxe category of rooms at WDW!

Current rooms will also be refurbished. Will they take on a new look? As one of our favorite Disney moderate resorts, we can’t wait to see the finished decor.

What will rooms look like after the upcoming refurbishment?

Transformations will also take place in the landscaping with added floating gardens and an island oasis that connects the resort’s far-flung buildings with a series of bridges. Sounds like an enhanced version of the island at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort! We’re all for saving some steps while walking through this resort. ūüėČ

The tropical ambiance at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort will likely be even more fun when the resort opens an updated marketplace at Centertown. New waterfront dining and retail shopping areas will be featured.

Possible Expansion at Coronado Springs Resort

Coronada Springs Resort
A room refurbishment is planned for Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort beginning mid-November, 2016. Therefore, hotel guests should note that construction will be ongoing. The noisiest work, however, will be confined to the hours between 9:00am and 5:00pm.

Permits were filed recently with the Reedy Creek Improvement District causing speculation of an upcoming expansion to this moderately priced resort. The Orlando Sentinel is reporting that the application lists a ‚Äúnew stormwater management pond and expansion of another pond to accommodate future impervious area within Coronado Springs.‚ÄĚ

Coronado Springs is very LARGE, housing convention space and many hotel buildings. Walking from a Ranchos building to El Centro, which houses all the resort’s main amenities, can be quite the trek. (I absolutely love to walk but that stroll is brutal in the Florida heat.)

What will rooms look like after the upcoming refurbishment?

So, what can we expect? Is the convention space being expanded? Will Disney Vacation Club (DVC) villas be built? We can’t wait to follow further developments and see the results of the room renovations. Stay tuned to The Castle Concierge.
