Disney's Coronado Springs Resort
Disney's Coronado Springs Resort is part Disney Moderate Resort and part Disney Deluxe Resort. The transition to a true convention resort brings options not available at the other moderates.
The regular rooms at Coronado Springs Resort are just a little larger than the standard rooms at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, but the same size (314 sq. feet) as the rooms at the Port Orleans Riverside Resort. They come in 2 configurations, standard and king.

The standard room sleeps 4 (plus an infant, under 3, who can sleep in a crib). In 2009, the bedding was upgraded from double to queen beds. This makes the room more comfortable for families.
Each room is equipped with just about everything a family would need on a vacation.
- Beds (two queens)
- Flat Screen Television
- Table and 2 chairs
- Free Wi-Fi
- Alarm clock
- Coffee maker (coffee included)
- Iron and Ironing Board
- A Hair Dryer
Standard rooms come in two views. Standard View and Water View. The only difference between the two is what you can see out the window.
Disabled Access Rooms
There are 99 rooms that have been designed for the disabled. These have roll in showers and rails in the appropriate places.
There are 60 rooms (being upgraded to 224) that have one (1) king sized bed in the room. These rooms only sleep two (2) people. They are the same as the standard rooms except for the bed.
Disney's Coronado Springs Resort has 31 Junior Suites. These are really a standard room with a king room connected. The bed has been taken out of the kings room and a sleeper couch has replaced it. These rooms sleep 6 and cost a little more than 2 standard rooms.
Business Club Level Rooms
As a business destination Coronado Springs Resort is not your standard convention hotel. Since it opened, the resort lacked amenities that business travelers are accustomed to.
In 2009 Disney added a Business Club Level to the Casitas area. The Business Club Level gives guests access to a lounge and a separate front desk and guest services. The lounge serves continental breakfast, midday snacks and evening wine (extra cost) and cheese.
Business club rooms have extra amenities such as robes and turndown service. They also are have better quality bedding and furnishings than in the standard rooms. Be advised, this area is considerably more expensive than other rooms in the resort, but the amenities and the rooms are much nicer.
Dad's Bottom Line
When it comes to rooms there are lots of choices. Specialized rooms cost quite a bit more, but may fit your family better.
