Disney has today announced that it will begin a major expansion at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort.
The centerpiece of the expansion is a 15-story tower that will add 500 guest rooms, including suites and concierge level services. Overlooking Lake Dorado, the tower will offer rooftop dining with views of the surround theme parks and resorts.
The new tower block will be located near to the current main entrance, convention and lobby area.
“For many of our guests, magical memories begin at one of our 27-themed resorts each and every day,” said Joshua D’Amaro, senior vice president of Disney Resort Hotels and Transportation. “At Walt Disney World Resort, we continue to expand our portfolio and invest in new resort developments that allow even more guests to be immersed in all that a Disney resort has to offer.”
Also part of the project is a refurbishment of the current resort rooms, and the addition of floating gardens and an island oasis that connects the resort through a series of bridges.
Disney's Coronado Springs Resort currently offers 1917 moderate priced rooms, inspired by the American Southwest and regions of Mexico. Opened in 1997, the resort was Disney's first moderate convention hotel, and features a 220,000-square-foot convention center.
An opening date has not yet been announced, but construction permits have been filed, and expect work to begin imminently and continuing for the next 2 years.
