Disney Parks Blog announced today that there would be changes coming to popular Walt Disney World moderate resorts, Coronado Springs and Caribbean Beach.  The changes and development will occur over the next 2 years to create amazing new experiences and accommodations for guests.


At Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort, there will be a new 15-story tower added.  The new tower will include 500 new guest rooms which will also include suites and concierge level services.  The new tower will also be the home to a new restaurant at the top of the tower.  This will provide guests the opportunity to view fireworks shows from the top of the restaurant.  Not only will there be new guest rooms, but the resort will also refurbish existing guest rooms and the grounds for the resort.

At Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort the marketplace area of the resort will be re-imagined to create new dining experiences and retail shopping areas.  This will also provide better access to amenities to the resort guests staying there.  These changes should bring new life to this already popular resort.

We look forward to these new changes, and we will keep you posted as we learn more throughout the upcoming stages of development.


About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
