Wow! So, this is where all the action is going to happen? Coronado’s Cabanas are already on their way out! Can it be?
My friends, you saw my fears, regret, sadness, and overall opinion in …
The Re-Imagineering of Coronado Springs? An Opinion.
Frankly, I am alarmed to see that it is happening so fast! What am I talking about? Well, credit goes out to blogmickey.com. Follow them! Very good site!
In “Coronado Springs Cabana Demolition”, they lay it out in pictures! The walls are up! Some of the buildings have been gutted! Disney does not mess around!
If I felt sadness when I wrote my earlier article, it turns out that that angst was mild. Now, I feel a bit of horror! Wow. Already Disney? The shock of the announcement hasn’t even subsided yet!
For those that don’t know, Coronado Springs was formerly comprised of three sections – Casitas, Ranchos, and Cabanas.
Truthfully, we’ve never been huge fans of either the Cabanas or the Ranchos (having stayed in each only once), but to see the Cabanas get demolished. Ugh.
Whether in All in WDW’s words or on the WDW Main Street Podcast, you’ll clearly “hear” my distress. But, how about you, folks?
Does this inevitable progress fill you with endless excitement? Or, like us, are you shaking your heads with sadness?
Will room prices skyrocket? Will old favorites – like Laguna Bar – be destroyed? Will the allure of the tower’s roof-top views be too much to deny?
Let us know your thoughts!
Cabana 9b is gone but that was expected. Business class was great but 43 of the 66 rooms were kings so families were left out. It was a great concept IMO.
9b and the small lake behind it will tranforms (like Heimlich) into a beautiful tower.
Thanks, Mario. I think. I’m VERY sad.
No, just Cabanas 9B, formerly the business-class building, which closed late last year after a permit was filed for construction on its site and the retaining ponds behind it and in front of the resort. The other buildings in Cabanas aren’t going anywhere, and the building that is being gutted has been closed and blocked off for weeks. Still, that terrible, awful, no good, very bad, please burn those plans with fire tower is going to completely ruin the vibe of the Cabanas section. This is my and my partner’s favorite resort, and we are heartbroken right along with you.
