Florida’s Coronado Springs Resort to add 500 rooms

Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, is adding a new 15-story hotel tower. Work has started on the new building at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, which will add 500 keys and overlook the property’s centerpiece lake, Lago Dorado.

Plans for the tower include a rooftop dining venue that will offer views of the nighttime fireworks at nearby Disney theme parks. The hotel will also revamp its existing rooms and alter its landscape with floating gardens and a new island concept connected by a series of bridges. Project participants say the transformation will maintain the hotel’s theme, which references the Spanish explorers that once traveled to North America.

“For many of our guests, magical memories begin at one of our 27-themed resorts each and every day,” says 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.”

The new tower will bring the number of Walt Disney World Resort’s rooms to about 30,000 across its nearly 30 hotels. Meanwhile, Disney World’s Caribbean Beach Resort is also expanding, with new waterfront dining and retail areas.
