Some months ago we found out about a new expansion project coming to the Coronado Springs resort which would drastically change the future of the resort. Thanks to wdwinfo.com we got a look at the Coronado Springs Expansion permits to see what those upgrades will look like. Those permits were filed with the South Florida Water Management District,
Disney plans to build a 15-story tower overlooking Lago Dorado which will hold 500 rooms including suites and concierge-level rooms. Even though we already knew that, we now get a better look at the exact positioning of the tower in relation to the rest of the property.
Here we can see the demolition area:
You can see the tower’s location better from the drainage and grading plan:
Lastly we can see the plans they have for a “floating gardens and an island oasis that connects the resort through a series of bridges” as well as a new restaurant over the lake. From the plans you can see the how it will be setup:
Now from the initial announcement from Disney we found out there would be a restaurant with panoramic views on the 15th floor of the new tower going into Coronado Springs, but from these latest permits we know there will be a over-water restaurant on the lake too. I haven’t heard anything has changed for the tower restaurant so it essentially seems that Coronado Springs is getting 2 new restaurants, and both with killer views. Looks like Coronado Springs is going to be a major point of interest once this is finished!
I want to know what you think about the Coronado Springs Expansion Permits being filed and the future of the resort. What are you most excited to see come to Coronado Springs? Are you going to plan the stay there once the construction is complete? Let us know in the comments section below!
