We have previously reported the various construction that is currently taking place at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort at Walt Disney World.  The expansion at the resort is expected to take place of the next two years.  The expansion will include a 15-story resort tower that will overlook Lake Dorado.  The plans were to include a waterfront dining location that we have now learned won’t just be a dining location, but will actually be built out over the water.


The new location will be build out over Lake Dorado with various walkways built in order to access the dining location.  This will make it an extremely unique dining spot, especially for resort dining since it will be the only location to be built out on the water.

All of the work and construction for the expansion, including the new restaurant is expected to be completed in the summer of 2019.  The work is already in progress and we likely won’t know for a while if the project is on track or if it will encounter delays.  We hope that the delays are minimal so that we can all see the fabulous finished product.  We don’t have any additional information on the name, theme or menu for the restaurant, and we can’t wait for additional details.  We will keep you posted as we learn more information about all of the exciting changes.

What do you think of this new construction effort thus far?

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!
