Our Favorite Disney World Moderate Resort

Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort

Disney World has several resort categories: Value, Moderate, Deluxe, Deluxe Villas, and the Campground.

We have stayed in all of them and wanted to share our favorite Moderate Resort. Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort is in Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Resort Area. This moderate resort offers décor with a blend of Spanish, Southwest American, and Mexican cultures.

Our favorite thing about this resort: the Gran Destino Tower rooms. The rooms have the feel of deluxe resort amenities at the cost of a moderate resort pricing. The beds are comfy, and the room furniture is well appointed, so you feel you have extra space. The Keurig coffee machines are a bonus for coffee lovers. I always work during travel and love having a desk area with plenty of space. You are steps away from the lobby once you exit the tower elevators. This adds a nice touch when using ride share and a short walk to and from the bus area.

It is also important to note the food options are fabulous! Rooftop or lakefront dining, sports bar and grill, Maya grill, and quick service location, you will always find something delicious to eat while staying here. Guests of all ages love the main pool, Lost City of Cibola pool, which includes a 50-foot pyramid.

This resort has often been referred to not being as magical because of the conference vibe. I think this is an unfair statement as Disney often has characters appearing in the lobby and the resort is decorated with Disney memorabilia and photos.
