New Changes for Disney's Coronado Springs Resort upon Reopening

Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort reopens next week! However, not everything will be available for guests. Find out all the dining, shopping, and recreational activities that will be available upon reopening.

Disney’s Coronado Springs

Coronado Springs is the next Disney Resort to reopen to Guests. The resort is considered a moderate resort, and it blends Spanish, Mexican, and Southwest American cultures in a newly reimagined way.

The Gran Destino Tower makes its home at Coronado Springs and recently opened just last summer! Interestingly, it offers club level access in the tower rooms, which is usually only reserved for deluxe resorts.

Unfortunately, club level service is not available for any resort. Read more about that HERE.

I have the opportunity to stay in the tower in February (thanks to some pixie dust), and I am excited to check this place out!

Changes to Coronado Springs

Like all the other resorts that are currently open, not every dining option or recreational activity will be available for Guests to enjoy. In an effort to cut costs and consolidate effort, select restaurants, shopping, and activities will be open.

Here is what will be available upon reopening:
