What Readers Are Saying About Disney's Coronado Springs Resort

Really enjoyed staying at the Gran Destino Tower much more than our previous stay at Coronado's casitas. The view from our room was great and we also enjoyed Destino's restaurant and the Three Bridges lounge.

Coronado Springs was too big of a resort. With the convention center attached to it there were so many people traveling to and from the resorts that it took an hour to board the bus to get back to the hotel at park closing.

We have found the resorts located nearer the Animal Kingdom, like Coronado Springs, are some of the quietest resorts because Animal Kingdom doesn't have fireworks.

Our club-level room at Coronado Springs was well worth the cost for the huge benefit of the lounge.

Dining

Coronado Springas has four full-service restaurants, a food court, and two bars, so there's plenty to choose from. Still, having a car will expand your options.

Coronado Springs Private Dining

Maya Grill Maya Grill at the relatively overlooked Coronado Springs is owned by the same folks who run the restaurants at the Mexico Pavilion in EPCOT, but execution falls short here. Menu prices have come down somewhat, but over $20 for fish tacos is still expensive.

Rix Sports Bar & Grill

Three Bridges Bar and Grill at Villa del Lago Taking waterside dining to the next level, Three Bridges unites traditional bar fare with Spanish flair. Dishes are nicely executed and drinks are delightful at this beautiful island retreat. Fun Fact: The Los Angeles Lakers celebrated their 2020 NBA championship at Three Bridges Bar when the NBA finished their season in a "bubble" at Walt Disney World. [Our Disneyland writer, Guy Selga, made us include this] While Three Bridges doesn't accept reservations, you can add yourself to its wait-list using the My Disney Experience app.

Toledo - Tapas, Steak & Seafood Toledo caters to park guests and conventioneers alike.

Cafe Rix

El Mercado de Coronado El Mercado de Coronado is the main Quick Service eatery at Coronado Springs. The food court area is fun and festive and contained in a large space that vaguely resembles and outdoor market. The overall setup is much like a food court at a mall. There are several different stations, each selling one set of meals. For example, one station sells pizza and pasta; another sells burgers; another is dedicated to sandwiches, and so on. If your kids each want something different, you'll have to line up several times. The good news is that some of the food is prepared on demand, so you'll at least be getting your burger cooked to order. El Mercado is unique among the moderate resorts in that it is a Quick Service venue where waiters bring and refill your beverages; as a result, guests are expected to provide a gratuity.

Barcelona Lounge Offers breakfast and coffee by day and cocktails by night.

Dahlia Lounge

Laguna Dock Bar

Siestas Cantina

Panchito's Gifts & Sundries Gift shop with a small selection of snacks, drinks, and groceries.

Refillable Mugs Allows guest self-service soft drink refills from quick-service locations in hotels (NOT in theme parks) for $21.99 for the length of stay.
