The whole All in WDW “World” knows that my family is in love with Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.
After all, it was the very-first place we ever stayed on property … way back in 1999! From the beautiful lake it surrounds, its ever-changing Pepper Market food court, and, yes, “our” Laguna Bar, we’ve loved it ever since.
Coronado is much-maligned for being a convention resort, but, my friends, we never “feel” the crowd.
To us, it’s much more quiet than a lot of places – among both WDW’s Value and Deluxe options. In fact, why should it “take a hit” for being a convention option? The Deluxes that afford the same opportunity do not!
Coronado holds a Deluxe-level atmosphere, in our opinion.
Although not on a par with dining options owned by the Polynesians and Animal Kingdoms of the World, the opening of Las Ventanas as a Table Service location kicks their culinary “scene” up a level. Pepper Market can compete with any Counter Service at any of Disney’s resorts.
La Vida Health Club provides hair and salon services. They offer an opportunity for a massage. The club, itself, is adequately stocked with fitness equipment. And, did I mention the scenic “jogging trail” around the lake?
Finally, their pool area sports some of the most unique theming in WDW … as well as its own bar – Siestas Cantina!
Again, for us, Coronado holds Deluxe appeal … all at a Moderate price! It’s a great trade off, in our opinion, and we feel it makes Coronado the most under-appreciated property in Walt Disney World! Most recently, it’s the only place we’ve stayed!
There. I made my pitch. Now, what’s yours? Don’t just VOTE your choice … explain your passion! Why should YOUR choice become the 2015 All in WDW Readers’ Favorite WDW Moderate Resort! You know my pick!
If last week’s Value discussion is any indication, today is going to be a great vote … and a great Disney day! Enjoy … and, most of all, VOTE!
