Gran Destino Tower at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort Scheduled to Open

With Disney’s ongoing effort to create unique and amazing experiences for guests staying on property, their Coronado Springs Resort (along with many others) has been undergoing refurbishment and construction for quite some time. There finally seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel as Disney Parks announced today that their new Gran Destino Tower at Coronado Springs is on track to open July of 2019! The 15-story tower will not only stand as the highlighted feature of the newly renovated resort, but it will also serve as the main entrance for guests who are visiting.

Gran Destino Tower will contribute 545 new guest rooms, 50 of which are suites, as well as include a themed restaurant on the top level. It will feature a magnificent 2-story lobby trimmed with classic Spanish themes praising explorers, writers, artists, and architects. The Spanish influences will be felt entirely through the new building and renovated rooms.

Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products Chairman, Bob Chapek also announced that the 1800 existing rooms have been entirely completed in refurbishment. This includes new fixtures, furniture, and lighting in each room! In addition to the completion of refurbished rooms and the new tower, a second restaurant will be available to guests. It will sit on the island centered in Lago Dorado. New walkways have also been established over the lake to make dining at the island accessible to all guests no matter where they may be roomed.

With a fresh coat of paint to provide harmony between the existing and new elements of this fabulous resort, we are certain that it will be a “must see.” As with any resort on property, although designed with a Spanish motif, we can entirely expect to see ounces of Disney tossed in here or there. Certainly, the resort will once again become a favorite of guests as it adds a new dimension to Disney theming and immersion while providing a comfortable place to rest after a long day in the parks.
